Nikon Announces D7000 D-SLR

Nikon today announced the D7000—a 16.2-megapixel D-SLR that shoots 1080p HD movies with full time auto focus, and has a native ISO range of 100-6400 which can be expanded to a Hi-2 setting of 25,600. Following its predecessor, the 12.3MP Nikon D90 (reviewed here), the new D7000 has a “CMOS sensor with low-light ability never before seen in a DX-format (APS-C) camera.” The D7000 will be available in mid-October for $1,199.95 for body only and $1,499.95 for body and lens outfit that includes the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens.

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.

Nikon Announces COOLPIX S1100pj

Nikon has announced the new COOLPIX S1100pj–an update to the S1000pj, which was the first compact digital camera to boast a built-in projector. If you recall, we reviewed the first generation camera at the beginning of the year, and quite liked it. Upgrades with the 14.1MP S1100pj include: a 40% increase in projector brightness (14 lumens), a 3-inch touchscreen LCD and the ability to connect the device via USB to project images from a computer. The look of the new generation camera seems to be a lot less sleek and more aimed at maybe seeming like professional equipment—there are knobs and dials where once there was only brushed metal and flat surface. The projector on the front is also much more prominent (helped along by the fact that PROJECTOR is written across it). The COOLPIX S1100pj will be available for $349.95 in September.

Nikon recently launched NikonLIVE, a website for photography and music fans that has exclusive music-related content, including tips on shooting concerts. A cool feature of the site is the Rock ‘N’ Roll Picture Show, which lets you browse an enormous archive of concert shots taken by pro photographers at shows across the country. If you’re headed to a live music show this summer—and let’s hope you are—this gallery is great inspiration for those who plan to capture the moment forever with a photograph (if the venue allows, of course).
