If you’re in the market for an advanced compact camera with advanced features usually only found on much heavier and bigger SLR’s you might want to consider Nikon’s best digital camera in their Coolpix lineup: The Nikon P7000. Offering advanced features such as 10.1 megapixels on a bigger CCD sensor, Full HD video recording and a 7.1x optical zoom lens with high end Nikkor glass elements, the newest Nikon camera is sure to please and attract the advanced photographer on your holiday christmas list.
Control of every aspect of a digital camera and it’s settings is one thing every advanced shooter demands and if there’s one area where the Nikon P7000 really shines it’s this. Thanks in part to the design of the digital camera body, the rangefinder style camera dictates that all common digital camera controls be handled via easy to adjust dial controls on top of the camera body for common settings such as white balance, ISO, aperture, shutter speed, and exposure control. With the flick of a dial the photographer can fully control every aspect when composing and shooting their scene. RAW file formats allow for greater creativity in the post processing stage with popular image editing software such as Adobe Photoshop.
Every digital camera announced in 2010 offer full HD video recording so it really comes as no surprise that Nikon would include this on the P7000 and they did. One nice feature is the flagship Nikon camera offers a dedicated button on the rear of the camera body so at the touch of a button you’re recording in full HD at 720p. When you’re done recording your movies, the included Nikon software makes it easy to share your movies on youtube or facebook with ease or you can connect the Nikon P7000 to your HDTV and view your videos in your own home or office on the big screen .
