Nikon Coolpix P7000 Announced

Nikon Coolpix P7000 Announced

As we predicted last week, Nikon has announced three new Coolpix models in their digital compact range.  The specs for each model are consistent with what we were expecting, and offer something for everyone.

The Coolpix P7000 is a new flagship, and in terms of styling, quality and features it will directly compete for sales with Canons current PowerShot G11 model, and perhaps more so with their upcoming PowerShot G12.

To recap, the headline specs for this high-end compact are:

  • Large 10Mp CCD sensor
  • 7x optical zoom
  • Optical Viewfinder
  • RAW shooting
  • HD Movie Mode with mic input for external sound
  • VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilisation
  • Full manual modes
  • 3″ high resolution LCD display

Whilst the fixed lens may still deter some the P7000 has a feature-set that wouldn’t embaress an entry-level DSLR, and it’s certainly a very capable camera.  If a small form-factor and interchangeable lenses are important to you, then maybe this won’t appeal, but for the majority of people looking for an excellent DSLR alternative this will fit the bill nicely.

To celebrate the news Nikon have made a (rather cheesy!) video guide to the P7000, with a bit of help from photographer Bob Kirst.
