Many enthusiast and professional photographers who lean towards Nikon have been waiting for the company to produce a high-end compact camera. Has the Nikon Coolpix P7000 finally given them what they want?
There are two AF modes: single and full time. With single mode selected the camera focuses as the shutter button is depressed, while in the full time mode it continually focuses. Methods of AF point selection include auto, 99-point AF, 1-point AF (which can be adjusted as centre spot, normal and wide), face detection and subject tracking.
Face-detection mode responds both quickly and accurately. In scenes with low light, such as a music gig, while the focus is accurate it is not as responsive and can struggle a little to detect the subject.
