Nikon P7000 Preview

Nikon just announced a new top of the line point and shoot camera the P7000. What makes this an interesting camera is that it uses a larger sensor than most regular point and shoot cameras which allows for better high iso quality as well as the ability to get a wider angle of view.

Who is this camera for? This camera is for the pro that has everything and is looking to carry around a smaller camera and still get great results with a lot of manual controls. A pro would also like the fact that it has a 2.8 lens at the widest angle, shoots RAW, captures video and has a mic input.

This is also for the amateur who does not want to carry around or bother with a larger DSLR. They want the functions of a dslr without worrying about changing lenses or knowing how to operate the functions of a dslr. Having the large 7x wide zoom makes this camera great for traveling, not only is it smaller than a dslr it offers great image quality and the ability to shoot video as well.

All and all if you are looking to carry something smaller or to be a companion to your DSLR and the price does not scare you off, this is the camera for you.

This camera can be purchased from Allen’s camera and video 215.547.2841 ask for the FRO Price. Or pre order here at AMAZON
