7 August 2008 @ 15:35The Nikon COOLPIX P6000 compact camera
Nikon just released their new COOLPIX P6000 compact digital camera, and the specs are quite impressive. First and foremost is the 13.5 megapixel image sensor, and the built-in GPS unit for geotagging photos. The body is a magnesium alloy for durability while remaining lightweight.
Once a photo is geotagged with the COOLPIX P6000, it can be uploaded to Nikon’s “my Picturetown” and mapped to its location. Photos can also be uploaded to “my Picturetown” via the P6000′s built-in ethernet cable without the need for a computer.
The P6000 offers Programmed Auto [P], Shutter-priority Auto [S], Aperture-priority Auto [A] and Manual [M] modes so that anyone from an amateur to a professional can take advantage of the camera’s functions.
The P6000 also offers a pop-up flash and an optical viewfinder, as well as a hotshoe that supports Nikon’s i-TTL flash control, and Nikon’s Speedlight flash units.
The COOLPIX P6000 supports SDHC cards to allow for greater storage capacity.
The P6000 will ship in September 2008 but is already available for pre-order.
