Nikon unveils three new Coolpix digital cameras

Today, Nikon unveiled three new point-and-shoot cameras for enthusiasts and people willing to spend a bit more for a stylish the camera.

The most interesting, 10-megapixel Nikon Coolpix P7000, $500, is for those who want lots of flexibility, but may not want a camera that uses interchangeable lenses. The P7000 appears destined to compete with our top rated advanced point-and-shoot, the Canon Power Shot G11, which is nearly a year old.

The P7000 has lots of features, including the ability to shoot RAW files, plus a hot shoe for an external flash. As photo shows, it's also covered with dials and buttons that let you set ISO, white balance, various types of bracketing, exposure compensation and manual focus. The P7000 also bucks the trend that so many other point-and-shoots have followed: It has an optical viewfinder, which includes a diopter adjustment dial for those who wear eye glasses.
