P7000 Still Doesn't Cut It
Jan 21, 2011

At least with the DPR review guys. Looks like the firmware update didn't go far enough. Likely needs a complete review by Nikon engineers for this nice advanced compact to score at least a Silver Award.

"Overall score 65% Nikon's engineers have clearly been looking to Canon's G-series for inspiration, and the P7000's boxy build, and plethora of external controls put it closer to the Powershot G12 than any previous P-series compact. Ultimately, the P7000's excellent image quality, and functional ergonomics are let down by slow, glitchy operation and lack of responsiveness."
