Thread: Nikon CoolPix P6000 vs Canon G10

  1. #1

    Default Nikon CoolPix P6000 vs Canon G10

    I am current a Nikon DSLR user and am thinking of getting a digital compact as back-up or when on business trip which would be quite difficult to lug my system along. I am considering between the Nikon P6000 and Canon G10. Based on the reviews I have read so far, it seems that G10 is the winner hands down. But I would like to hear opinions from fellow CSers, especially Nikon CSers before buying. BTW, is Nikon P6000 made in Japan?

    Have you considered LX3 too?

    Dpreview should have a good review between them.
    Worth checking it out

    LX3 despite the lack of zoom
    It has a pretty decent lens.
    f2.8, fast lens and good for low light

    I would not recommend the Nikon P6000 as you'll need to charge the battery in camera instead of using a battery charger.

    Dear all,

    Thanks for the reply and advise. Despite the lack of zoom in the LX3 the Leica lens will somehow make up for that. I understand that the LX3 has a slower processing speed compared to the G10. Anybody wish to comment?

    Slower processing speed as in? writing to the memory card? It seems to be acceptable in the writing speed though. Maybe you want to elaborate further on that. =)

    see which one you want, picture nicer or machine gun fast take pictures.

    For myself, i am using Sony DSC P72 3.2MP. Not exactly top of the line these days but still works very well for occassions where DSLR would be cumbersome.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    Correction: It should be f2.0 at 24mm.... f2.8 (at widest) is very consider quite common.
