However, the longer zoom reach comes at the expense of the wide angle: the P50 offered an f/2.8-5.6 28mm-102mm-equivalent range, in contrast to the P60's narrower (though a bit faster at the telephoto end) f/3.6-4.5 36mm-180mm-equivalent range.
Though it uses the same 8-megapixel sensor as its predecessor and continues to operate off two AA batteries, the LCD grows a smidge to 2.7 inches from 2.4 inches. Oddly, like the P50, it offers Program and full Manual exposure modes, but no aperture- or shutter-priority shooting options.
Nikon plans to ship the Coolpix P60 in the beginning of March for $229.95.
