'The G12, which updates the acclaimed G11, is an option for those who want better pictures and better features than a less well specified compact will deliver, but don't actually want to go the whole hog and plump for a DSLR.'
'the camera is replete with advanced shooting features.'
'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.'
