A Moveable Beast From Nikon
Speaking of pocketable power, Nikon’s manual-minded Coolpix P7000
] was on display at the show, and its control layout offers an incredible amount of granular fine-tuning and fast access to image controls for a non-DSLR. Three mode dials on the top of the camera let shooters adjust exposure compensation, bracketing modes, ISO settings, and custom settings without diving into the on-screen menus. The camera has a 10-megapixel CCD sensor, a 7.1x wide-angle zoom lens (28mm to 200mm, F2.8 to F8.0), and a hot shoe for external flashes and microphones. It’s available now for US$500.
