Nikon Coolpix P7000- compact camera with a feel similar to that of digital SLR cameras

Nikon today announced the release of the Coolpix P7000, the latest flagship model in the Coolpix series. The Nikon P7000 is a fun camera that incorporates advanced shooting functions with a feel similar to that of digital SLR cameras in a compact, lightweight body. The Nikon Coolpix P7000offers an effective pixel count of 10.1 million pixels. A lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function and two ED lens elements that effectively suppress chromatic aberration have been adopted for the 7.1X optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers a wide range of focal lengths from the wide-angle 28mm to telephoto 200mm (equivalent with 35mm [135] format). In addition, adoption of the latest image-processing engine, EXPEED C2, enables capture of high-resolution images with rich tonal expression. The P7000 is the first COOLPIX camera to be equipped with a built-in neutral density (ND) filter that reduces the amount of light that passes through the lens, enabling a three-stop decrease in shutter speed.

The Nikon P7000 is also equipped with a number of new functions, including Zoom Memory and Tone Level Information display, which provide greater control over shooting and resulting images. The Nikon Coolpix P7000 with 79 MB internal memory measures 114.2 X 77 X 44.8 mm and weigh approximately 360 g (with battery and SD memory card). Supplied accessories include: Camera Strap, Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery EN-EL14, Battery Charger MH-24, USB Cable UC-E6, Audio Video Cable EG-CP17, ViewNX 2 CD-ROM.
