Nikon Europe announced the new Nikon Coolpix P60, a compact digital still camera that features 8.1 megapixel resolution, a 5x optical Nikkor zoom lens and a large 2.5-inch LCD screen in a traditionally-styled, yet compact and lightweight camera body. The Nikon P60 offers Nikon’s VR vibration reduction technology, a wide range of image enhancement features and a handy mode dial that puts the user in control. The Nikon Coolpix P60 has the pleasing look and feel of a traditional photo camera. Designed to work with standard AA batteries, the Nikon Coolpix P60 will appeal to camera lovers with its comfortable handgrip and classic black colour.

Nikon Coolpix P60 - Powerful zoom lens
“The Nikon Coolpix P60 brings professional features and quality to consumers in an easy-to-use package,” said Martina Beckmann, Manager Communications & Marketing Services for Nikon Europe B.V. “Its ergonomic design, powerful zoom lens and advanced features make the Nikon Coolpix P60 a great choice for people who want to take outstanding pictures with a compact camera.”

Nikon Coolpix P60 - Camera modes & scenes
Designed for intuitive operation, it has an easy-to-hold grip providing stability and a solid shooting touch in a comfortable, compact body size. Framing a photograph is simple, using either the Nikon P60’s wide viewing angle 2.5-inch LCD screen, or the electronic viewfinder with included information display. The camera’s easy to use mode dial makes it simple for users to switch between manual and auto modes. In Programmed auto mode, it automatically selects shutter speed and aperture for optimal exposure, while the Manual mode lets users select both shutter speed and aperture for greater control over results. The camera includes 15 scene modes optimised for pre-defined situations including Portrait, Landscape, Night Portrait, Sports, Party/Indoor, Close Up, Museum and even Fireworks Show. The Nikon Coolpix P60 also has the capacity for movie recording with sound at 640 x 480 pixels at 30fps. Images are recorded on a removable SD memory card or in the 22MB internal memory.

Nikon P60 - Nikkor zoom lens & Image quality
The Nikon Coolpix P60 is equipped with a 5x optical Nikkor zoom lens that offers outstanding precision and sharp resolution. The lens has a focal length of 6.4-32mm, equivalent to 36mm-180mm in a 35mm format, and has aperture settings ranging from f/3.6-4.5. The camera can be used in a wide range of lighting conditions with sensitivities of ISO 80 to ISO 2000, enabling faster shutter speeds to help overcome subject blur or when shooting in places with insufficient light. In addition the Nikon Coolpix P60 offers enhanced processing speed and image quality due to its EXPEED image-processing engine. For clear, stable results when shooting still images and videos, the incorporated image sensor shift VR technology reduces the effect of hand-held camera shake at slow shutter speeds. The Nikon P60 has a focal range of approximately 30cm to infinity. A macro mode allows shooting from as close as 10cm from the subject, while the new Active Zoom feature allows smooth zooming for close-ups.

Nikon P60 digital camera - Face Priority AF & Red Eye Fix
The Nikon Coolpix P60 offers several in-camera innovations that make it easy to shoot beautiful portraits. An advanced version of Face-Priority AF (auto focus), detects up to 5 faces with precise auto focus. Another feature is In-Camera Red Eye Fix, which uses digital processing to restore natural eye colour when using the flash. A third image innovation is Nikon’s D-Lighting process, now faster than ever. Applied in the camera during playback and without the need for a computer, it compensates for excessive backlight or insufficient flash.

Nikon Coolpix P60 camera - Price & Accessories
The Nikon P60 is supplied with two AA-size alkaline batteries, a USB cable, audio video cable, a strap and a CD-ROM with Software Suite for Coolpix. A battery charger, rechargeable Ni-MH batteries and AC adapter are available as optional accessories. The Nikon Coolpix P60 measures 95.5 (W) x 63.5 (H) x 36 (D) mm with the lens retracted. It weighs approx. 160g without battery and SD memory card. The estimated street price for the Nikon Coolpix P60 is €229.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
