Nikon Coolpix S6000 First Look

by Reads (297)

The S6000’s long lens range is particularly impressive for such a small camera. In the photos below you can barely see the statues at wide angle while their details are apparent at maximum zoom.

The S6000 produces bright but accurate colors in standard auto mode and also has color options for vivid, black and white, sepia and cyanotype. The camera’s bright colors combined with its ability to focus as close as 1.2 inches (3 cm) can produce striking macro photos.

As with all small cameras, overexposure and blown-out highlights seem to be an issue, though Nikon’s D-lighting feature is designed to address this.

These issues will be further explored as I’m able to spend more time with the S6000. A full review should be out shortly.
