"The Nikon Coolpix P7000 is a the new flagship model in Nikon’s extensive range of Coolpix compact digital cameras. The Coolpix P7000 is the successor to the one-year-old P6000, but it offers a new design and extra features that make it a completely different proposition."
PhotographyBLOG has reviewed the Nikon Coolpix P7000 and has come away impressed by it. Me? I'm not so. After years of Canon bringing out a number of G cameras, Nikon's response is a near-copy that betters the Canon in a few areas (mostly in the lens' extra reach). I suppose Nikon sees that compact cameras don't have the lock-in a DSLR system has, so there is no need for a vastly more compelling camera to entice buyers. Personally the signal I get from Nikon is that they are still not that interested in this segment; contrast this with the D3 and D300 launch three years back. I certainly am not getting this camera!
