Nikon has unveiled new digital cameras in the Coolpix range: the advanced P7000. The Nikon Coolpix P7000 is an advanced bridge camera. It features a 10.1Mp CCD sensor and provides a 7.1x zoom with a focal length starting at a wide 28mm, and extending to 200mm.
The P7000 features a bracketing function, which takes a series of shots with slightly different exposure values, allowing the user to then choose the best photograph to keep. The ISO on the Nikon P7000 can be set between 100 and 3,200, and there are priority modes for both shutter speed and aperture control – along with full manual control and 18 scene modes.
The Nikon P7000′s Nikkor lens will include a built-in neutral density filter. The 7.1x optical zoom lens will cover an equivalent focal range of 28-200mm and will feature two ED glass elements. Lens-shift VR image stabilization is included to combat blur in low-light and handheld images. Using the new zoom memory feature, the user can set a preferred focal length and have the camera return to that position on command.
The P7000 will offer 720p HD video recording with audio recorded via a built-in stereo microphone. Those looking for a little bit more in audio quality will be able to utilize an external microphone input. Optical zoom is also available in movie mode, and an HDMI port will allow for connection to an HDTV.
The Nikon Coolpix P7000 is priced at $499.95. No release date has been confirmed yet, though it could be expected as soon as the end of the month.
