Nikon's latest P-series advanced compact enters a very competitive market. However, a range of modifications make the Nikon Coolpix P7000 more competitive than ever. How does it fair on the WDC test bench?
Nikon Coolpix P7000 review – Verdict
At around £479, the Nikon P7000 is priced, albeit competitively, towards the higher-end of the market. Despite improving on the previous model in many areas there are new issues. Overall, however, it’s still a very good enthusiast compact and some £50 less than its Canon G12 rival.
If you’re the kind of photographer for whom Raw capture holds no appeal, then there’s very little to complain about with the Nikon Coolpix P7000. The problem is that if you’re considering an advanced compact then there’s every chance that Raw capture is exactly what you’re looking for and the P7000’s extensive delay in its capture is very limiting. Although it’s a fantastic advanced compact overall it’s this single issue that causes the P7000 to just miss out on a WDC gold award.
