Photography Bay has reviewed the new Nikon Coolpix P7000 point-and-shoot camera. The camera features a 10.1MP image sensor with a 7.1x optical zoom, a hot shoe for external flashes and the ability to capture 720p HD video. The Nikon Coolpix P7000 also has an Optical Vibration Reduction, ISO 100-6400 at full resolution (ISO 12800 at 3MP), a 3-inch 921k-dot resolution display, an optical viewfinder, RAW file capture and an external mic port. Here is the conclusion:
When it comes to image quality, the P7000 can hold its own against the best of the advanced point and shoot cameras. The overall design and feature set of the P7000 is solid, but it’s not quite enough to make up for the sluggish operation. As a result, I would have to recommend that prospective purchasers look toward the Canon G12 unless you have a specific reason for adding the camera to an existing Nikon system.
