Good camera, but not for everyone

OK, first of all, the combo is good for the price at the time I bought it (mid October). Overall, everything seems useful except for camera case, which fits the camera too tightly thus makes it difficult to insert/remove the camera in a flash. This camera produces images with quality that rivals even the entry-level DSLRs such as the Nikon D40 (my first DSLR) in a much more portable package, and even more if you consider the available zoom range.

OK, first of all, the combo is good for the price at the time I bought it (mid October). Overall, everything seems useful except for camera case, which fits the camera too tightly thus makes it difficult to insert/remove the camera in a flash. This camera produces images with quality that rivals even the entry-level DSLRs such as the Nikon D40 (my first DSLR) in a much more portable package, and even more if you consider the available zoom range. The high ISO images are better than the Nikon D40 can achieve at ISO 800. The camera body contains enough knobs for manual control of exposure, shooting mode, and various settings that make using it a joy, but only if you are familiar with an DSLR camera before. For people wanting to get a good & easy to use point-and-shoot camera, this is not it. But for previous DSLR owners, this is fantastic as a backup and/or travel camera. The build quality is typical of Nikon DSLR, not point and shoot cameras. There are quite a few complaints on the net about the issues such as slow .NRW writing speed, lens focus error re-initialization, etc. My own experiences confirm these issues, but I belive their impacts largely depend on personal shooting preferences. Overall, a fantastic supplemental camera for DSLR owners. The firmware could use some improvements. Top IQ & ergonomic in its camera class.

Excellent value and quality.


from Orange, CA, USA

I have only owned Nikons for five decades. I purchased the P7000 when it was first released because of its ability to take RAW/NEF images. Within the constraints of its lens it takes excellent quality images and it has way more features and functions than I will ever use. I am still learning about its many features and it is so handy to use. I process my images in Lightroom and Photoshop and I use onOne, Topaz and NIK software on my Macs. I am always pleased and I am often astonished with the results. I suppose I will upgrade to the newest version of the P7000 series some day - 1080 HD video and Wi-Fi would be nice - but I don't know if I will ever get a 'Big Boy' body/lens again.


Great Camera


from Los Angeles, California  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Concealable camera with great sharpness and resolution


Inevitable lens cover problems


from Undisclosed

It's just a matter of time before this camera's lens cover will stop opening all the way. Search the internet reviews and discussion threads: It happens to everyone. Until Nikon admits that this is a manufacturer error and offers to fix the problem, I have to rate this otherwise great camera as "Poor."

good camera at night


from Anaheim, CA

I bought this camera because it looked like it would take good pictures in low lighting situations which none of my point and shoots seem to be able to handle. It arrived the day I was headed to a party at night so I took it along, I couldn't see anything without my glasses on so I just winged it and left it on auto and got some really nice shots. Imagine what pictures it could take if I could see what I was doing and had time to read the manual.

Wonderful Camera


from Undisclosed

So far I've been very impressed with this camera. I wanted a camera with full manual control and did quite a bit of research before finally settling on this one because it seemed to be just as good as its competitors, but considerably cheaper. I received it with firmware 1.1 already installed, so I don't know how slow it was before. It takes about 5 seconds to write a RAW file, which is the same as my sister's DSLR. With a class 10 memory card, the write speed was cut to 3 seconds. I don't notice a delay when I am shooting. I've found the menus very easy to use and I love all the dials, it's a pain to go racing through menus looking for important settings just before taking a shot and the dials on this camera fix that problem. The video seems adequate and I'm glad the camera doesn't have in-camera HDR because the quality usually isn't the best. The view finder is extremely important in sunny weather, I just have to remember that the last quarter of the picture is missing. It might have been nice to have a rotating LCD screen, but they break easily. The rotating screen on my friend's Canon broke very quickly. All I wanted was a camera that takes very good pictures and is easy to carry around. The Nikon P7000 more than fits the bill!

Compact, But powerful P7000


from Kansas City, MO, USA

Full featured professional grade tool. If your a beginner just use the auto mode to get great shots. For more advanced shooters this camera really gives some great high quality images. I have enlarged to 16x20 with good results at ISO100. Up to ISO 400 enlargements to 11x14 are stunning. Firmware is alittle quirky and sometimes its like trying to coax a drunk into a taxicab for a ride home.... but once you learn how to get your bracketing and macro modes to work you'll get great results. The qaulity of the images you get out of this little jewel is well worth the effort to work around its issues. I went to a Media Professionals Seminar at the Nelson last night. Greg Gorman was the speaker and presented about 100 of his images. Anyhow, setting up on the stage taking time lapses of the crowd assembling at this Canon sponsored event... was you guessed it... a Nikon P7000. Must have been sort of embarrasing for Canon. Anyhow, this is a great little camera and I see SLR photo's that are not as good as what I get from this camera. Yes for magazine or poster size work its not up to that level but for most everyday street photography this baby rocks.

Small camera very flashy


from Mt Holly, NJ, USA

I got this camera on Christmas and I just fell in love with it.! It is very compact and it is very simple to use. Although it has many buttons and various options just take your time with it. It take amazing sharp crisp images. I am not a photographer but my life is like a photo shoot and I have caught every single moment from breakfast to dinner on by the shore. It is fast, responsive, and unique

All Around Awesomeness


from Pigeon Forge, TN

This camera is perfect for someone that wants the quality of a DSLR but a little more compact. All of the features go way beyond anything else for the price. If anything... the HD video camera makes it worth the price.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

armando c  Is it brand new??
PHIL J  Yes it was new when we purchased it back in April; as far as the quality it is a great camera even more so if you consider it's small size. We use it as a back-up camera to some of our others so we've only taken a few thousand shots and it has performed very well. Hope that helps!
Kay P  does this camera come with battery and charger?
LEONARD G  Yes, the kit includes a battery and charger. The battery is very easily removed from the camera and slips into the charger. The charge is very quick. The charger unit is about the size of a cigarette pack.
