'The Nikon P7000 is a serious camera for those serious about photography but don't want to commit to a DSLR. '
'In our tests, the Nikon Coolpix P7000 also did the best job of in-camera editing: After snapping a shot, you can choose to have the camera automatically enhance the image via Nikon's Active D Lighting correction, Quick Retouch mode, or skin softening; and you can even apply filters such as a Miniature Mode setting.'
'Using the P7000 was an enjoyable experience for us.'
'the camera feels fairly sturdy with the exception of the right side, which is capped by plastic with part of it being a door covering the mini HDMI and USB/AV port.'
'Shadow detail is somewhat limited, due mostly to the camera's noise suppression efforts.'
'consumers a great compact camera'
'Screen brightness is manually adjustable (five steps), though even with the brightness maxed, there's too much glare off the display's coating to effectively use the camera in bright, direct sunlight.'
'The White Balance control on the camera was very impressive.'
'It's great for shooting rooms, landscapes, and portraits, but it falls short in the telephoto department, making the Panasonic LX3 a difficult choice for an all-around camera, unless you're used to short to medium focal lengths.'
