Re-entering the enthusiast digital camera market with a vengeance, the Nikon P7000 takes its largest rival head-on.
The new camera's design leaves little guessing over which major rival they're taking on with the Nikon P7000, but as is often the case in industrial design, few other forms would work as well. Though the Nikon P7000 lacks the Canon G12's swiveling LCD, it has a longer 7x zoom and a higher-resolution, 921,000 dot LCD. Sensor size is identical, though, at 10 megapixels, and the emphasis on plentiful external controls is also obvious. Photographer-favorite features like the Shutter speed, ISO, and White balance Bracketing feature show the Nikon P7000's target market, and the Virtual horizon indicator makes it easier to level the camera for fewer crooked horizon lines. We ran into a few issues with the Nikon P7000's focus and speed, though, so you'll want to read our review for the whole story. Click here for more on the Nikon Coolpix P7000 digital camera!
