VR stands for Nikon's integrated stabilization system called Vibration Reduction. Encircled around the zoom lens, is a lens ring to use converters.

LCD display of the Nikon Coolpix P6000
The 2.7 inch LCD display dominates the back of the Nikon Coolpix P6000. The control center is almost equal to that of the Coolpix P5100. A number of buttons next to the display offer access to functions such as Menu, Play etc. The multi-control button, with the OK button in the center, offers direct access to exposure compensation, flash, self-timer etc. It's striking to see the optical viewfinder is still there. It is small yet has several LED indicators for flash and focus functions. On the whole, it looks well-structured and calm.

The topside of the Nikon P6000 camera also looks well-structured. The famous command dial with main programs such as P/S/A/M and scene presets is easily accessible and will obviously be used a lot. The shutter release is quite small but has a nice feel to it when pressing. The encircled ring enables zooming of the lens. In addition, it's easy to operate the command dial with your thumb. On top of the camera, in the center part, the hot shoe is placed enabling you to use an external Speedlight flash.
Nikon Coolpix P6000 offers GPS module
The side of the camera contains a small flap to hide interfaces for A/C adapter and USB cable. The other side features the integrated GPS module. The bottom of the camera is used to store the battery. A solid lid covers the compartment nicely. A safety catch ensures the battery stays in place when opening the compartment. Inside it, a card slot is available with support for SD and SDHC memory cards. The LAN interface is found in the bottom of the handgrip.
