I own a Nikon DSLR. I was thinking of buying the P6000 as a backup or for for times when the DSLR would be too heavy.

How is the image quality of the P6000, especially in low light? Almost any digital camera can take good photos in good light, but the better ones really shine in low light situations.

How does the P6000 compare to other compact cameras in this price range? Thanks.

I have added a couple photos taken at sunset, using two different "scene" modes. I used my Joby Gorillapod as the tripod, but I don't have a remote trigger, so it was tricky work taking the shot without any motion introduced to the camera.

Unfortunately, these photos cannot be viewed in the original image size. The shrunk down photos are too small to evaluate.

I will put them in the Creative Commons, then you can view the full size.

I guess you're right. Without using a good tripod, the camera's image quality is hard to judge in these photos.

Hi johnny,

I could not be happier with my P6000. It is small enough to take anywhere. here's a lower light pic from last week.
