The P7000 is Nikon's foray into enthusiast/high-end compact territory, a direct competitor to powerful shooters like the Canon G12. The goal here is excellent image quality, achieved with a larger-than-average CCD sensor, a powerful processor, high sensitivity, RAW shooting, full manual control, and heightened image stabilization. The feature that really makes the P7000 stand out from its peers is the 7.1x zoom lens, the longest we've seen on any high-end compact. The twin-dial interface is also the most dSLR-like of the bunch. It has extra enthusiast appeal because of its optical viewfinder, too. The overall image quality is great, on par with other advanced compact shooters, but the huge size and clunky interface hold this back a bit. If it feels right, go for it, but we prefer the Canon G12 by a hair.

NIKON'S SWING AND A MISS … (Bob Ray — 01/03/2011)
The P7000 was a good idea on paper but in reality, I returned it. No compatibility with Photoshop save for the brand new Photoshop 5 as regards RAW images. Strike One. Soft images that ALL require sharpening [judging from the .jpeg's as I cannot see the raw files]? Strike Two. Slow focus. Strike Three and where's my receipt? I'm a Nikon shooters for my DSLR's but, as painful as it is to say, Canon's G10 is the better camera for all the above reasons.
