Nikon Coolpix P6000 | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
Nikon too has fully adopted the Secure Digital and SDHC memory cards as standard storage medium. The entire Coolpix compact camera line uses the SD platform, including some of the amateur DSLR cameras. The semi pro and professional digital SLR cameras use CompactFlash. Currently, SDHC offers 32GB of maximum storage capacity and rumor has it we may expect a new generation of memory cards this year (SDHC plus?) with increased capacities of 64 and even 128GB.

Nikon Coolpix P6000 - RAW & JPEG format
The Nikon Coolpix P6000 features standard an internal memory of approximately 48MB. This is not useful for high resolution photography. It can take only two RAW format images and there is only little extra space for the JPEG format with 13.5 Megapixels and 7 pictures. An additional memory card is the only effective solution. Considering you shoot in the highest quality in RAW format, an 8GB card will be the most appropriate.

Considering 2GB of storage capacity:

Nikon Coolpix digital camera review
SanDisk Extreme Ducati Plus SD memory card
During the tests in practice, I used the Nikon P6000 with a 4GB SDHC card and besides that, I used it in combination with a special type Secure Digital memory card; the SanDisk Extreme Ducati Plus SD memory card. It has the size of a standard SDHC card but does have a unique feature; taking the card out of the camera you can snap it in two and a USB interface is then freed. This way you can insert the card directly into a free USB port and get access to the stored pictures or videos. No need for wires or a card reader, even the camera can be put aside.

RAW support on the Nikon Coolpix P6000
Although the Nikon Coolpix P6000 fulfills the wish of the photographer by supporting RAW format, it is only half-fulfilled. The buffer is simple too small to process large format files as a result of which the camera 'freezes' for over 4 seconds after taking a RAW picture and you have to wait for the sign to tell you that you can shoot again. For a camera with 'Performance' pretensions, this is absolutely unacceptable.

USB Hi-Speed interface & Card reader
The side of the Nikon Coolpix P6000 carries a USB 2.0 Hi Speed interface, which lets you quickly transfer a full memory card of 2GB to the desktop or notebook. Personally, I detest having to fiddle with cables and I prefer the optional card reader. Then it is just a matter of removing the card from the camera and transferring your files through the card reader. The advantage is the fact you can use the camera whilst transferring and it saves battery capacity. What's more convenient is that you don't have to go looking for that one cable you need.

Nikon Coolpix P6000 battery
The Nikon P6000 gets its energy from a Lithium-Ion battery. The 3.7V 1100 mAh Nikon EN-EL5 battery is charged inside the camera, which is why no separate battery charger is included. The AC adapter (EH-66) comes with the camera. It has to be connected to the side of the camera and after approximately three hours the battery is fully loaded. It’s not always so handy to recharge the battery through the camera, since it is impossible to use the camera at the same time. That's why a second battery might come in handy, or an external battery charger to charge the EN-EL5. According to CIPA measurements, a fully charged battery should last for 240 pictures. However, in practice the circumstances differ from the lab environment at which CIPA measurements are carried out, so count on getting slightly less pictures. We were able to shoot some 210 pictures. Battery life strongly depends on the circumstances (environmental temperature) and the way of photographing.
