Tuesday, August 10, 2010

When the company two years ago, Nikon introduced its high-end compact camera COOLPIX P6000, it's really become an event in fotomire. The compact unit the Japanese manufacturer has managed to fit so many different functions (including a built-in GPS and support for the format RAW), that this model is on the right could be classified as so-called prosyumerskih cameras.

Competing with the Nikon COOLPIX P6000 for functional equipment in this category could, perhaps, only the model Canon PowerShot G9. But after a while the Canon has a new "king of compact" - PowerShot G11. And now there was information that Nikon is preparing a retaliatory move in the game with his bitter rival - a model COOLPIX P7000.

According to Nikon Rumors, the functional Compact Camera Nikon COOLPIX P7000 will be largely similar to its predecessor, but gets the most on the physical size of 1 / 1 ,7-inch matrix with less than the P6000, a resolution - "only" 10 MP. In this regard, the Nikon COOLPIX P7000 will be similar to the camera Canon PowerShot G11, containing the same changes.

Such changes are supposed to improve the quality of photographs obtained, especially when shooting in low light conditions. There is also information that in the arsenal of Nikon COOLPIX P7000 will Lens 28 - 200mm f/2.8 - 5.6, which gives the opportunity to cover a greater range of focal lengths than its equivalent 28 - 140mm f/2.8 - 4.5 on the Canon PowerShot G11. Information on the date of the announcement and the price of a new camera is missing.
