"Nikon Coolpix P8000 rumours--The Nikon P7000 has been on the market for less than six months so we’re not expecting it to be replaced in 2010, but already, we’re anxious to see what will come next. Externally, the Nikon P7000 is a near-clone of the Canon G12 (it even shares the same sensor) but that’s where the similarity ends. Image quality is excellent, but Nikon’s flagship compact is let down by its poor operational speed and rather feeble continuous shooting performance. If Nikon wants to be taken seriously in the tough high-end compact market it’s going to have to do better than this with the Nikon P8000. Expect the Nikon P8000 specs to boast a higher resolution sensor, an articulated screen and a beefed-up processor. We’d love an electronic viewfinder too, rather than the useless and bulky optical finder of the P7000, but we’d settle for a camera that doesn’t... take... ages... to... do... anything....
2011 Nikon P8000 release date probability: 100%, if Nikon doesn’t want to get laughed out of the playground."
