Nikon CoolPix P7000


$500.00 Released September, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Optical viewfinder. Accessory hot-shoe. Capable of shooting video in 720p/24 high definition.

The Cons:Fairly chunky and unattractive for the majority of consumers. Not a tilt/swivel display. Thicker and heavier than the model it replaces (P6000).

The Nikon CoolPix P7000 is a high-end compact camera released in September 2010 as a successor to the P6000. It drops to a 10.1MP CCD sensor (versus 13.5MP) and trades away LAN connectivity and GPS functionality, but hosts a wider f/2.8-5.6 zoom range, an improved 7.1x optical zoom, a larger 3" TFT LCD monitor, and an HDMI mini connector.

The previously mentioned downgrades are considered by critics to be a fair trade for the gains introduced—including an electronic spirit level, an additional control dial, and more customization options. They say the P7000 has manual controls for virtually ever setting, not to mention RAW support, a 720p/24 movie mode, and an optical viewfinder and accessory hot shoe.
