Our take on the Nikon Coolpix P7000

by Dave Bar
Nikon

Today's point-and-shoot cameras make great pictures easier than ever

From baby's first steps, to that dream vacation in the islands, these cameras make it easy to capture life's greatest hits. Today's cameras have helpful automatic features, like face detection and scene recognition that make shooting more foolproof than ever. And they all have plenty of megapixels for detailed photos that stay sharp, even when you enlarge and print them.

A luxury compact camera that thinks it's an SLR
If you're a serious hands-on photographer looking for SLR-inspired creative control but in a smaller form factor, the P7000 is your kind of camera.

Of course you get easy, fully automatic operation for those times when you just want to point and shoot with fantastic results. But where this Nikon really shines is when you switch it over to manual mode for composing more advanced shots. You choose the aperture, shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, and focus settings to give your images the exact look you want. The P7000 puts those important controls at your fingertips — on the outside of the camera — where you can make adjustments quickly and efficiently. You'll spend less time digging through layers of menus, and more time capturing those once-in-a-lifetime moments. This advanced cam even lets you shoot in uncompressed RAW mode for greater flexibility when you edit your images.

Better features for better photos
Along with precise control and responsive handling, the P7000 gives you plenty of other helpful features, too. A tack-sharp 7X optical zoom with image stabilization delivers clear close-ups, and keeps your shots steady. Its wide-angle settings let you easily capture expansive landscapes or large crowds in a single frame. The 3" high-res LCD offers a bright, super-detailed view when evaluating your shots, or just sharing the fun with others. There's even an optical viewfinder — a handy but increasingly rare find — which is great for shooting outdoors when glare can make it tough to see the LCD.

This camera has limited internal memory — pick up an SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory card to add more space for saving your photos and HD videos.

  • 10.1-megapixel effective recording
  • high-resolution (921,000 dot) 3" LCD screen

Recording Features

3" LCD Monitor: The Nikon Coolpix P7000 has a 3" TFT LCD monitor featuring approximately 921,000 dots, an anti-reflection coating and a five-level brightness adjustment. The LCD monitor has approximately 97% horizontal and vertical coverage in the shooting mode and approximately 100% horizontal and vertical coverage in playback mode.

Optical Viewfinder: In addition to the 3" monitor, the P7000 has a real-image optical viewfinder. It has approximately 80% horizontal and vertical coverage, compared to the actual picture. The viewfinder's diopter lets you adjust the viewfinder to your eyesight.

Image Sensor/Processor: The Coolpix P7000 features a 1/1.7" CCD image sensor with approximately 10.39-million total pixels and 10.1-million effective pixels. The EXPEED C2 Image Processing engine delivers high-quality, natural-looking pictures with stunning color and sharpness.

Optics: The Coolpix P7000 digital camera uses a Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens for superb image quality. Every aspect of the lens manufacturing process is controlled by Nikon. The Zoom-Nikkor lens is designed for the specific camera and CCD combination. The Coolpix P7000 uses a 7.1x wide-angle optical zoom lens, that is equivalent to a 28-200mm lens in 35mm photography. Coupled with the 4x digital zoom, the camera's total zoom capability is 28x. The angle of view is equivalent to that of a 800mm lens (35mm format).

Optional Wide-Angle Converter: The WC-E75A Wide-angle Converter (sold separately) can be mounted to give you an even wider angle view, equivalent to a 21mm lens. The UR-E22 Adapter Ring is required for mounting.

Photo Information: Three display options for the LCD monitor are available during shooting:

  • Virtual Horizon: A level display allows you to check whether the camera is being held perfectly horizontal or vertical.
  • Histograms: A graph that shows the brightness distribution in the picture.
  • Framing Grid: Two vertical and two horizontal lines can be overlaid in the picture, dividing the frame into 9 sections, to assist you in framing your shot.

5-Way VR (Vibration Reduction) Stabilization: The Nikon Coolpix P7000 offers a 5-Way Vibration Reduction (VR) Stabilization System:

  • Optical VR Image Stabilization: Nikon's Optical VR Image Stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake by lens shift.
  • Hybrid VR Image Stabilization: Nikon's Hybrid VR Image Stabilization uses a combination of optical (lens shift) and electronic vibration reduction to compensate for the effects of camera shake.
  • Motion Detection: Motion Detection automatically detects moving subjects and adjusts the shutter speed and the ISO setting to compensate for camera shake and subject movement.
  • High ISO: High ISO up to 6400 capability gives you sharper results when shooting in low light or capturing fast-moving subjects. This creates new opportunities to take sharper, more natural-looking photos in lower light conditions.
  • Best Shot Selector (BSS): Nikon's Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically takes up to 10 shots while the shutter is pressed and then saves the sharpest image.

File Formats: The Coolpix P7000 records still images in JPEG and RAW (uncompressed) formats. HD and SD movies are recorded in MOV format (Video: MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, Audio: AAC stereo). You have a choice of 11 still image size options and three movie options (see chart below). You can set the image quality (compression) for each image size as Fine (1:4 compression ratio), Normal (1:8), Basic (1:16).

NRW (RAW): Raw, uncompressed data from the image sensor is saved in the memory. You can convert the raw data to a JPEG image file in the camera using the NRW (RAW) processing option in the playback menu. You can also take a RAW image and a JPEG image at the same time. The JPEG image compression can be set to Fine, Normal, or Basic. The image size of a RAW image is set to 10M: 3648 x 2736.

Built-in Memory: The camera has a built-in 79 MB internal memory for storing still images and movies with sound.

Recording Media: In addition to the built-in memory, images can be recorded onto SD, SDHC, or SDXC Memory cards. When an SD Memory card is inserted in the camera, the images are automatically recorded onto the card. When no card is inserted, the images automatically record to the internal memory. The camera can support 2 GB SD cards, SDHC cards from 4 GB to 32 GB, and SDXC cards over 32GB. The capacity of the internal memory and optional memory cards is as follows:

  • Shutter-Priority Auto Mode: The Shutter-Priority Auto Mode allows you to choose the shutter speed and lets the camera select the aperture value for best results when freezing or blurring motion.
  • Aperture-Priority Auto Mode: The Aperture-Priority Auto Mode allows you to choose the aperture value and lets the camera select shutter speed for best results when using to blur background or bring both foreground and background into focus.
  • Manual Mode: The Manual Mode allows you to control exposure by adjusting the shutter speed and aperture manually. You can set the camera's shutter speed from 1/4,000 to 60 seconds and adjust the aperture value between f/2.8 and f/8.0 (W) and f/5.6 and f/8.0 (T).
  • User Setting Mode: Settings that are frequently used for P, S, A, and M shooting modes can be saved in the User Setting Mode. Up to 3 settings can be saved, and recalled by moving the Mode Dial to one of the "U" settings (U1, U2, U3).
  • Low Noise Night: For capturing the atmosphere of a low-lit scene, and shoot with a low amount of noise and without flash. The image size can be 3M: 2048 x 1536 or smaller, and the ISO sensitivity is set automatically within a range of ISO 400 to 12800.
  • Scene Mode: You can manually or automatically select a scene mode with settings optimized for the shooting situation:
    • Scene Auto Selector: The camera automatically judges the type of subject (scene mode) when you frame the picture so that you can more easily take a picture suited for the scene. The mode will automatically be changed to one of the following scene modes: Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Night Landscape, Night Portrait, Close-up, and Backlighting.
    • Portrait: Useful for photographs where you want the main subject to stand out clearly from the background.
    • Landscape: For vivid landscape shots that enhance outlines, colors, and contrast in such subjects as forests and skyscrapers.
    • Sports: For dynamic action shots that freeze the action in a single shot or record motion in a series of pictures. Up to 45 frames are captured at a rate of about 1.3 frames per second when the shutter button is fully held down. Image size is set to 10M: 3648 x 2736 pixels.
    • Night Portrait: For shots that provide natural balance between the main subject and the background when shooting portraits under low lighting.
    • Party/Indoor: Shots include details of the background behind the main subject, or to capture the effects of candlelight and other indoor background lighting.

    • Close Up: Used to capture vivid colors in close-up shots of flowers, insects and other small objects, with the background artistically blurred.
    • Food: Used when shooting pictures of food.
    • Museum: Use indoors where flash photography is prohibited or in other settings in which you do not want to use flash.
    • Fireworks Show: Slow shutter speeds are used to capture the expanding burst of light from fireworks.
    • Copy: Provides clear pictures of text or drawings on a white board, business card or in other printed matter.
    • Backlighting: Use when light is coming from behind your subject or when your subject is in the shade but the background is brightly lit. You can use the HDR (high dynamic range) function when a bright backlight cause dark shadows on the subject.
    • Panorama Assist: Use to take a series of photographs that you will later join to form a single panoramic scene.

Continuous Shooting: In the P, S, A, or M shooting modes, you can select in the menu from the following single or continuous shooting options:

  • Single: One image is shot each time the shutter-release button is pressed.
  • Continuous: Up to 45 pictures are shot at a rate of about 1.3 frames per second each time the shutter button is held down. Image size is set to 10M: 3648 x 2736 pixels.
  • Best Shot Selector: Camera captures up to 10 images while the shutter release is held down, and the sharpest image in the series is selected and saved.
  • Continuous Flash: While the shutter button is fully held down, continuous shooting is performed with the built-in flash. Approximately 3 frames continuously are shot at a rate of 1.2 fps. Image size is set to 10M: 3648 x 2736 pixels.
  • Multi-shot 16: Camera takes 16 shots at about 30 fps and arranges them in a single image of 5M: 2560 x 1920.
  • Interval Shooting: The camera shoots still images automatically at a set interval. The maximum number of frames that can be taken depends upon the length of the interval:
Interval Images
30 seconds 600
1 minute 300
5 minutes 60
10 minutes 30
  • Movies: Shooting HD movies at 24 frames per second and SD movies at 30 fps.

Self-timer: The camera is equipped with a 10 second and 2 second timer for self-portraits. In addition, the camera can use face detection to detect human faces, and automatically release the shutter when a smile is detected (Smile Timer).

Remote Control Shooting: With the optional ML-L3 Remote Control, you can take self portraits or shots on a tripod to effective eliminate camera shake. You can choose from quick-response remote shots (shoots instantly when you press the remote control button), 10 seconds remote or 2 seconds remote shots.

AF Area Mode: You can select between the following AF Area Modes to determine how the camera selects the focus area for Auto Focus:

  • Face Priority: When the camera recognizes a face (front view only), the camera will focus on the face automatically.
  • Auto: The camera automatically selects the focus area (up to 9) containing the subject closest to the camera.
  • Manual: You can manually select one of 99 focus areas in the monitor. This method is handy when the intended subject is not positioned in the center of the frame, and is relatively still.
  • Center: The camera focuses on the subject in the center of the frame. The center focus frame can be set to one of three sizes (Wide, Normal, Spot).
  • Subject Tracking: Once you select a subject to focus on, the focus area will move and follow the subject.

Focus Modes: You can choose a focus mode according to the subject and composition. The choices include:

  • Auto Focus: Camera automatically adjusts the focus. Focusing distances: 1'-8" to infinity (W), 2'-8" to infinity (T).
  • Macro Closeup: Macro mode is used for taking pictures of objects as close as 0.8"
  • Infinity: For use when shooting distant scenes through window glass or when shooting landscapes.
  • Manual Focus: The focus can be adjusted for any subject 0.8" to infinity from the lens. The rotary multi-selector is used to adjust the focus while viewing the image on the monitor.

Focus Lock: The Focus Lock feature is used to focus on off-centered subjects in the frame while shooting in Center AF mode.

AF-Assist Illuminator: If lighting is poor, the AF-assist illuminator may light to assist the focus operation when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. The illuminator has a range of about 21' at the maximum wide-angle position and 18' at the maximum telephoto position. You can turn this function on or off.

Blink Warning Function: The Blink Warning function is available when you are shooting in Face Priority mode. When the camera detects that one or more human subjects may have blinked, the blink warning screen is displayed. The subject is framed by a yellow border, allowing you to check the picture and decide whether or not to take another picture.

Exposure Compensation: You can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure from -3.0 to +3.0 EV in 1/3 EV steps, using a rotary dial on the top of the camera.

ISO Settings: Sensitivity is the measure of how quickly the camera reacts to light. The higher the sensitivity, the less light needed to make an exposure. The camera features the following ISO settings:

  • Auto: Sensitivity is set to ISO 160 when there is sufficient lighting, and raises the sensitivity to a maximum of ISO 800 when lighting is dim.
  • High ISO Auto: The ISO sensitivity is set automatically between ISO 100 and 1600.
  • Fixed Range Auto: Select from two ranges in which the camera automatically sets the sensitivity: ISO 100-200 or ISO 100-400.
  • Manual: Sensitivity is locked at the set value: ISO 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200, or Hi 1 (equivalent to ISO 6400).

White Balance: You can set the White Balance to Auto, Daylight, Incandescent, Fluorescent (FL1 to FL3), Cloudy, Flash or Choose Color Temp. You can also choose Preset White Balance and use a neutral-colored object as a reference to set the white balance under unusual lighting conditions. Up to three preset values can be saved in Pre1, Pre2, or Pre3.

Built-in Flash: The Coolpix P7000 has a built-in flash with a range of 1'-8" to 21' (Wide angle) and 2'-8" to 9'-10" (Telephoto). You can choose from the following flash modes:

  • Auto: Flash fires automatically when lighting is poor.
  • Auto with Red-eye Reduction: Pre-flash fires before main flash to reduce red-eye effect.
  • Flash Off: Flash will not fire, even when lighting is poor.
  • Fill Flash: Flash will fire whenever a picture is taken.
  • Manual: Flash fires at a preset output. Choose from Full, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, or 1/64.
  • Slow Sync: Auto flash combined with slow shutter speeds.
  • Rear Curtain Sync: Fill flash fires just before the shutter closes, creating the effect of a stream of light behind moving objects.

External Flash: The P7000 is equipped with an accessory shoe for mounting an external flash unit, such as the Speedlight SB-400, SB-600, or SB-900. The camera is also compatible with the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander for controlling multiple flash units.

In-Camera Red-Eye Fix: If the camera detects red-eye after the pre-flash has fired, advanced red-eye reduction processing is used to further reduce red-eye, slightly increasing the time required before the next picture can be taken.

AF Modes: When shooting still images or movies you can choose between two auto-focus modes:

  • Single AF: The camera focuses when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway and locks at this position during recording.
  • Full-time AF: The camera constantly adjusts focus, even when the shutter-release button is not pressed.

Voice Recording: Audio voice memos for pictures can be recorded over the camera's built-in microphone and played back over the unit's built-in speaker. Memos can be up to 20 seconds in length. Memos are saved as WAV files.

Great Camera!

Written By Kervin, Charlottesville, VA on Saturday, March 17, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This was an upgrade for me from a Panasonic Lumix DMC. What I was looking for was manual controls, what I got was much more! I do mostly nature shots and I feel the bracketing very useful. I was able to get a spectacular moon rise over water shot that ended up being two stops below what I had thought. After a little practice, it was easy for me to access the menu and change whatever setting I wanted. The optical view finder comes in handy on very sunny days. Battery life is very good. I took it on vacation for a week and I didn't need to recharge the battery.
Pros:
Ease of use Sensors Manual Controls Battery Life Optical Viewfinder
Cons:
Size - A little smaller would be nice Hand grip - If the size can't change, a bigger hand grip would be nice

Great semi-pro camera

Written By Hector, Puerto Rico on Friday, January 28, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a camera that both hobbyist and professional can enjoy. With its equivalent 28-200mm zoom/autofocus lens, there is no shot to be missed. Has everything you would ever want in a point and shoot camera. Just take some time to learn how to use all its features and you'll never be disappointed.
