Nikon's P60 brings the features and the manual control to the game

[photopress:p60.jpg,full,center]Nikon’s latest offering to the point-n-shoot gods is the COOLPIX P60, a more full-featured and user-controlled camera than the L18. While the megapixelage is the same at 8, everything else is a step or two up, including a 5x optical zoom, vibration reduction, and electronic viewfinder assist. The camera can be set to manual or automatic with the flip of a dial, and has ISO up to 2000, meaning you’ll get great shots even in low light.

Red-eye adjustment and an advanced noise-reduction chip also help. This advanced camera will be shipping in March with a street price of about $230, and is worth a look even if you’re a novice.
