Additional Nikon P60 features and details (adapted from the press release):

The 8.1 effective megapixel P60 delivers powerful resolution and a 5x Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens with Vibration Reduction (VR) Image Stabilization for stunningly sharp images. A first in the Coolpix line, the P60 offers an electronic viewfinder for consumers who like to compose a photo with the camera close to their eye.

The Coolpix P60 comes with a functional body design and a defined hand grip for secure finger placement and easy operation. The camera’s mode dial includes two exposure modes - Programmed Auto and Manual - to offer consumers creative control over the pictures they take. To ensure sharp and steady images when utilizing the camera’s 5x zoom, the P60 boasts sophisticated Vibration Reduction (VR) Image Stabilization technology, which helps overcome the effects of camera shake. The P60 also sports an extended light sensitivity range up to ISO 2000, which helps capture stunning pictures in low light settings.
