Nikon Announces COOLPIX P7000 Advanced Compact Camera

Nikon announced today the latest addition to the COOLPIX lineup of compact digital cameras—the P7000. The 10MP advanced compact follows the COOLPIX P6000 (reviewed here), although with its array of protruding knobs and more professional design, this new Nikon seems to have a similar look to the Canon PowerShot G series (G11 reviewed here). However, if the viewfinder on the P7000 is better than the G11′s (which wouldn’t be tough to beat), this would be a real contender in my book for an ideal high performance compact.

The P7000 aims to attract the professional photographer and new photo enthusiast alike, as it offers pro-level features such as Full Manual Controls (PSAM), RAW file function, 5-Way Vibration Reduction Image Stabilization System and a 7.1x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens (28-200mm f/2.8-5.6), as well as features like Scene Auto Selector for those less comfortable with Manual shooting. The P7000 will be available for $499.95 in late September. More info and images from Nikon below.
