Nikon announces the release of its COOLPIX P7000, the latest flagship model in the COOLPIX series. The 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. A classic compact digital camera, the P7000 offers advancements in image quality, shooting functions and operation over its predecessor, the COOLPIX P6000.
The P7000 offers an effective pixel count of 10.1 million pixels. It is equipped with a 7.1X optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers a broad range of focal lengths beginning at the wide-angle 28mm (equivalent with 35mm  format), and makes the most of the large 1/1.7-inch, RGB CCD image sensor and optical characteristics. In addition, adoption of the latest image-processing engine, EXPEED C2, enables capture of high-resolution images with rich tonal expression. Additional new functions include a Zoom Memory and Tone Level Information display, which provide greater control over shooting and resulting images. Further information and specs for the P7000 can be found directly through Nikon.
