Although it seems like a lifetime ago, I shall fulfill my promise of putting up pictures taken with the Nikon Coolpix P6000. Better late than never, or something like that…
I think I had mentioned that we had the opportunity to go and visit Mike’s parents in Chi-town. We had a great time just hanging out, watching movies, playing games and eating lots of food! Below is a picture taken in low light at a close range. Using the counter to steady my hand, I got a pretty clear shot. Not too bad for a point and shoot!
Another low light shot taken at Chicago’s Fourth Presbyterian Church. The pew helped to steady my hand, but again, pretty clear for a little camera.
Okay, slight detour. There are a few things that I get giddy about in life. Wine and cheese are some of them. My in-laws took us to an awesome fondue place in Lincoln Park called Geja’s. Because of my love affair with cheese and wine, I had to throw in a couple of pictures.
(This was the chocolate dessert fondue which comes flambe. Not the best picture, but I thought the flame was pretty cool)
Okay, back to the camera. This picture is taken at midday, so fairly good light. I’m also handholding the camera. I feel that this is a sharp picture, and the camera did well for what my needs were. Not a shot to blow up and use in a gallery, but for a vacation shot it’s good.
Here’s another architecture picture taken at the Cultural Center. Gotta love the Tiffany ceiling’s, right? Again, I feel that the camera did well with the detail and gave a sharp image.
Overall, I feel the the P6000 did a good job. Some of the pictures required a flash, which I am not a fan of, but at the same time, it’s not an SLR. I liked being able to control the ISO, apeture and shutter speed, which you don’t get on a ton of little cameras. So if you are in the market for a point and shoot, I think the Nikon P6000 is a good choice.
