Excerpt: This case fits the camera perfectly and has high quality appearance and workmanship. I cannot, however, figure out how to secure the camera case to the camera or the camera strap. As a result, when I use the camera, I must find a place to set the camera case (and not forget it).
Summary: I really wanted to like the P7000 as I own Nikon DSLR's, but I just can't recommend it over the Canon G11 (or G12). First, the P7000 is slower than the G11 in most every way. The G11 zooms faster, scrolls through menus faster, magnifies photos you've already taken faster, and just feels snappier overall than the P7000.
Summary: I am a long time Nikon user and I usually buy Nikon without hesitation, so when Nikon came out with the P7000 that shoots raw and still has a viewfinder (so many point and shoots don't) I jumped on it. I have to say I was a bit disappointed. Not only with the write speed, witch is really rather slow, but the quality of the photo's are just not up to the standard I have come to expect.
Summary: Here is the problem, durability. I used the camera outdoors in a windy environment for 30 minutes. From that point the lens cover wouldn't fully open. Then, the flash wouldn't pop up. I shoot with a D300 and was expecting a pro level compact from nikon. Love the pictures, controls, etc. Just don't see this camera holding up. Very disappointed. Also, why didn't they use the same raw format as their DSLR's? I can't process with Photoshop raw....
I really wanted to like it too - thoughts from a Point & Shoot guy

Summary: But I finally returned it after trying it out for a week. I come from a point and shoot and was looking to upgrade to something a little better. Won't cover the image quality as there I agree with most, the pics came out fantastic. A couple of things I couldn't get over (and please remember this is my point of view) included: 1) the placement of the metal rings where you hook on the straps - so incredibly inconvenient to me, it constantly got in the way of my hand.
Summary: Bought this for a trip to which I was unable to take DSLR. Capture in Raw was important, I find it produces pretty good colours & the VR certainly helps with slow shutter speeds. One complaint is that the autofocus seems to struggle, most of the time I reset & it'll find it on the second try.
Just what I needed at the time...but in the end went back to DSLR.

Summary: This is a very nice product. Feels very solid..light and rigid. Photos are head and shoulders above the smaller point and shoots esp in low light with virtually no grain up to ISO 800. Lens also super sharp. Slight issues with exposure particularly tendency to over-expose flash shots..but that is perhaps because I am still learning to use the camera. Video excellent and better than the Panasonic TZ7 this camera replaced.
Summary: This is only part one as I am returning this camera for a number of reasons.Generally I like it but then it is the first compact I have owned. I use a couple of Nikon DX2 DSLRs but wanted to have something light to keep with me without lugging everything around. The biggest problem for me has been the issue of focusing. It hunts a lot and so often focuses incorrectly and back focuses and that is in good light that I suspect the camera is faulty.
Summary: Excelentes resultados,.mas só para amadores avançados ou como máquina leve para profissionais. Amadores vão desperdiça-la e estar rasgando dinheiro comprando coisas que jamais irá usar. O que gostei: O maior sensor da categoria. Ótimo Zoom ótico. Visor direto. Ótima empunhadura. Confortável O que não gostei: Não é muito amigável. Tamanho e Peso.
Pros: Duração da Bateria, Qualidade da Imagem, Funções e Características, Display
Cons: Custo-Benefício, Facilidade de Uso, Portabilidade, Memória Inclusa
