Nikon P7000 for Traveling
from Albany, NY
Comments about Nikon Coolpix P7000 10.1 MP Digital Camera with 7.1x Wide Zoom-Nikkor ED Lens:
I bought the P7000 as a travel camera for work and leisure as an upgrade to a Nikon 995. I have a D70 that is too bulky for most travel. The P7000 takes very sharp photos, and I liked the close-up macro capability, especially when documenting samples during factory or field visits. The image quality is excellent, though I feel the need to slightly push the exposure by +1/2 or +1 to get better detail in the shadows. I have a couple of external Nikon flashes (SB-25 and SB-800). The SB-25 did not work at all; the flash would not fire. The SB-800 was not automatically recognized by the P7000 on "auto", but when I manually set the P7000 to one of the flash modes, it worked fine. The P7000 seems to set the "auto ISO" by metering without the flash, so it is good to manually set the ISO to avoid grain in the resulting images. I found it necessary to study the manual to reach some of the subtle features that weren't obvious to me from the camera's menus. Overall, I am pleased with the camera.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great camera for everyday photography.
from New York, NY
Great camera with good manual controls , e.g., exposure compensation dial. Also easy to move between viewfinder and monitor for composing the scene being photographed.
Super versatile camera
from seattle, wa
I've hiked for a week in Patagonia and I enjoyed the versatility of this camera. I ended up taking a lot of macro photos of the flora and I was super impressed with the result - sharp photos even in poor light conditions. This is the perfect camera for backpacking/hiking and an excellent SLR backup. Even though it is not very fast at processing raw I did not find this to be a serious issue. I'm actually between a 4 and 5 just because I had a problem with the lens cover not opening completely and I had to send it back for repair. I blame the crazy Patagonian winds for that.
Love the P7000
from Pittsburgh PA
I love this camera. Just got it for Christmas, but so far it is great!
Nikon got it right this time
from Danville, CA
Nikon finally fixed those things people did not like about the P90, P100 and L110. Lens protecting mechanism is a plus. Quality photos with good sharpness and color. Intuitive controls. Separate battery charger allows you to shoot with a backup battery while recharging the original battery. Have not used movie function yet. It is a bit pricey, but I believe it is the best quality point and shoot camera available now.
I would buy this camera again.

I use it as my second camera, when I don't want to lug my SLR around, but still want the quality of my SLR

Best Automatic Camera for Me
from Chicago, IL
I missed a lot of interesting shots because I didn't like to carry my Nikon D700, with its lenses because of their size and weight. They just weren't convenient.I carry my Nikon P7000 everywhere, without hassle. The images almost match those of my big camera.The biggest drawback of this camera lies with Apple. They have yet to update iPhoto and Aperture to recognize and process the RAW file profiles of this new camera.
