After having searched for months for a decent camera, I finally decided to visit a little shop in the town I live in. Alot of settings, adequate megapixels, great optical zoom Battery consumption

Picture Perfect The Nikon Coolpix P60 camera has it all. From the lightweight, easy grip design to the photo quality. Bad circuits After less than three months of use the P60 has malfunctioned. The display does not work. Neither do any of the controls.
CleverCoder 9:03pm on Thursday, April 15th, 2010 
I was excited to get the P60 for a very reasonable price given the features the camera has (which suit my needs well). However.
griffljg 3:58pm on Friday, April 9th, 2010 
noisy images, not as clear as my coolpix L1, good solid construction and erganomics. However, just like the rest of the coolpix range.

Number of exposures remaining
Number of Exposures Remaining
The number of pictures that can be stored depends on the capacity of the memory or memory card, image quality, and image size (A 78).
Indicators Displayed in A (Auto) Mode
Vibration reduction icon Vibration reduction can be applied to reduce the effects of camera shake.
Shooting mode A displayed in A (auto) mode.
Shutter speed Aperture Internal memory indicator Pictures will be recorded to internal memory. When memory card is inserted, C is not displayed and pictures will be recorded to memory card. Image quality/Image size Current image quality and size settings are displayed. The default settings are W (Normal) for image quality and F (3,264 2,448) for image size.
D Available Functions in A (Auto) Mode
In A (auto) mode, focus mode (A 31) and exposure compensation (A 32) can be applied and the camera can shoot using the flash mode (A 28) and self-timer (A 30). Pressing d displays the shooting menu options for specifying the image quality (A 76) and image size (A 77).

Vibration Reduction

Vibration reduction (A 105), when On (default setting) is selected, can be applied to effectively reduce blur, caused by slight hand movement known as camera shake, that commonly occurs when shooting with zoom applied or at slow shutter speeds. Set Vibration reduction to Off when using a tripod to stabilize the camera during shooting. To reduce the effects of camera shake when recording movies, enable Electronic VR (A 56) from the movie menu (A 55).
Shutter Speed and Aperture
Shutter speed and aperture settings, adjusted by the camera to suit shooting conditions, are displayed. In M (manual) mode (A 44), shutter speed and aperture can be specified manually.

Step 2 Frame a Picture

Ready the camera.
Hold the camera steadily in both hands, keeping your fingers and other objects away from the lens, flash, AFassist illuminator, and microphone.
When shooting in tall (portrait) orientation, hold the camera so that the flash is up.

Frame the picture.

5.0 (up to the maximum optical E, I, G zoom ratio) D C 6.0 (digital zoom up to 1.2) 7.0 (digital zoom up to 1.4)
Digital zoom can be limited to the range at which interpolation is not in effect, or it can be turned off (A 106).

Step 3 Focus and Shoot

Press the shutter-release button halfway.
The camera automatically focuses on the subject in the center focus area. When the subject is in focus, the focus area will glow green. When digital zoom is in effect, and the subject is in focus, the focus indicator (A 6) will glow green. The focus area is not displayed. Focus and exposure remain locked while the shutterrelease button is pressed halfway. When the camera is unable to focus, the focus area, or focus indicator, blinks red. Change the composition and try again.
Press the shutter-release button the rest of the way down.
The shutter will be released, and the picture will be recorded to the memory card or internal memory.

Shutter-release Button

The camera features a two-stage shutter-release button. To set focus and exposure, press the shutter-release button halfway, stopping when you feel resistance. Focus and exposure lock while the shutter-release button is held in this position. To release the shutter and take a picture, press the shutter-release button the rest of the way down. Do not use force when pressing the shutter-release button, as this may result in camera shake and blurred pictures.
Press the shutterrelease button halfway to set focus and exposure.
Press the shutterrelease button the rest of the way down to take a picture.

During Recording

While pictures are being recorded, the O (wait) icon will be displayed, or the number of exposures remaining/movie length indicator will blink. Do not turn the camera off, open the battery-chamber/ memory card slot cover, or remove or disconnect the power source while these icons are displayed. Cutting power or removing the memory card in these circumstances could result in loss of data or in damage to the camera or card.


Autofocus may not perform as expected in the following situations. In some rare cases, the subject may not be in focus despite the fact that the active focus area, or focus indicator, glows green: Subject is very dark Objects of sharply differing brightness are included in the scene (e.g. the sun is behind the subject and is in deep shadow) No contrast between the subject and surroundings (e.g. when the subject is standing in front of a white wall, wearing a white shirt) Several objects are at different distances from the camera (e.g. the subject is inside a cage) Subject is moving rapidly In the situations noted above, try pressing the shutter-release button halfway to refocus several times, or focus on another subject and use focus lock. When using focus lock, be sure that the distance between the camera and the subject with which focus was locked is the same as that for the actual subject.

To exit without deleting the picture, select No and press k.

Using the Flash

The flash has a range of about 0.4-5.1 m (1 ft. 4 in.-16 ft. 8 in.) when the camera is zoomed out all the way. With maximum optical zoom applied, the range is about 0.6-4.0 m (2 ft.-13 ft.) (when ISO sensitivity is set to Auto). The following flash modes are available.


Auto (default setting for A (auto) mode) Flash fires automatically when lighting is poor. Auto with red-eye reduction Reduces red-eye in portraits (A 29). Off Flash will not fire even when lighting is poor. Fill flash Flash fires when a picture is taken. Use to fill-in (illuminate) shadows and backlit subjects.
Slow sync U (auto) is combined with slow shutter speed. Flash illuminates main subject; slow shutter speeds are used to capture background at night or under dim light.
Rear-curtain sync Flash fires just before shutter closes, creating effect of a stream of light behind moving subjects.

Setting the Flash Mode

Press m (flash mode).
The flash menu is displayed in the monitor.
Use the multi selector to choose the desired flash mode and press k.
The icon for the selected flash mode is displayed. When U (auto) is applied, D is only displayed for five seconds. If a setting is not applied by pressing k within a few seconds, the selection will be cancelled.
Shooting When Lighting Is Poor and the Flash Is Disabled (W)
Use of a tripod is recommended to stabilize the camera during shooting and avoid the effects of camera shake. Set Vibration reduction (A 105) to Off when using a tripod to stabilize the camera during shooting. The E symbol is displayed when the camera automatically increases sensitivity to minimize blur caused by slow shutter speed. Pictures taken when E is displayed may be slightly mottled. Noise reduction may be automatically applied as pictures taken are recorded; results in increased recording times.

d Sports Use this mode for dynamic action shots that freeze the action in a single shot and record motion in a series of pictures. Until the shutter-release button is pressed halfway to set focus, the camera focuses continuously. While the shutter-release button is held down, the camera shoots at a rate of about 2.0 frames per second (fps) when image quality is set to Normal and image size is set to E (3,264 2,448). This rate is maintained for up to 4 pictures. Focus, exposure, and white balance are fixed at values determined with the first shot in each series. The maximum frame rate with continuous shooting may vary depending upon the current image mode setting and the memory card used. Slower shutter speed may not be available. Camera focuses on subject in center of frame. m W n Off * Other settings can be selected. k Close-up Photograph flowers, insects and other small objects at close range. D (macro close-up) is selected for focus mode (A 31) and the camera automatically zooms to the position at the closest distance at which the camera can focus. The camera can focus at distances as close as 10 cm (4 in.) at the wide-angle zoom position at which F glows green. The closest distance at which the camera can focus varies depending upon zoom position. AF area mode is set to Manual (A 86). When k is pressed, camera focuses on subject in active focus area. Until the shutter-release button is pressed halfway to set focus, the camera focuses continuously. As pictures are easily affected by camera shake, check the Vibration reduction (A 105) setting and hold the camera steadily. m W* n Off* p p o 0.0* h Auto* p A o 0.0* h

q Image Quality

Choose the amount of compression applied to pictures. Lower compression ratios result in higher quality pictures, but also larger file sizes, limiting the number of pictures that can be recorded.
a Fine Fine quality images (compression ratio of 1:4), suitable for enlargement or highquality prints. b c Normal (default setting) Normal image quality (compression of 1:8), suited to most applications. Basic Basic image quality (compression of 1:16), suitable for pictures that will be distributed by e-mail or used in web pages.
Image quality is shown by an icon (A 6, 7).
See Number of Exposures Remaining (A 78) for more information.

r Image Size

Choose the size of pictures in pixels for recording. Pictures taken at smaller sizes require less memory, making them suited to distribution by e-mail or the web. Conversely, the larger the image, the larger the size at which it can be printed or displayed without becoming noticeably grainy, limiting the number of pictures that can be recorded.

Auto (default setting) AF-assist illumination will be used to assist the focus operation when the subject is poorly lit. Note that for some scene modes, AF-assist illumination turns off automatically. Off Disable this function. The camera may be unable to focus if lighting is poor.

u Digital Zoom

Use this setting to control digital zoom operation.
On (default setting) Pressing and holding down g (i), at the maximum optical zoom position, trigger digital zoom (A 22). Crop Limit digital zoom to the range at which image quality does not suffer. Off Disable digital zoom except when recording movies.

Notes on Digital Zoom

When digital zoom is in effect, AF area mode is set to Center (A 86). Digital zoom is not available in the following situations. - When b (portrait) or e (night portrait) mode is selected - When Multi-shot 16 is selected for Continuous (A 85) - Before movie recording begins (however, digital zoom of up to 2 can be applied while movies are being recorded) When the digital zoom ratio is between 1.2 and 1.8, Metering is set to Center-weighted. When the digital zoom ratio is between 2.0 and 4.0, Metering is set to Spot.

i Sound Settings

Adjust the following sound settings.
Button sound Turn button sound on (default setting) or off. When On (default setting) is selected, a beep will sound once when operations are completed successfully, twice when the camera acquires focus on the subject, and three times when an error is detected. Start-up sound will also play when the camera is turned on. Shutter sound Choose shutter sound from On (default setting) or Off.

k Auto Off

If no operations are performed for the selected length of time, the monitor will turn off and the camera enters standby mode (A 15) to reduce drain on the batteries. The power-on lamp blinks in standby mode. If no operations are performed for another three minutes, the camera will turn off automatically. Choose the time allowed to elapse before the camera enters standby mode if no operations are performed. The available options are 30 s (default setting), 1 m, 5 m, and 30 m.

Notes on Auto Off

Regardless of the option selected, the monitor will remain on for three minutes when menus are displayed, or for up to 30 minutes when slide shows are in progress.
