Pics with it to follow. I just read some here and know the lens cover weak link...
but this one is (at this time) is in awesome condition.
Would have perfered a eqv./24mm -90mm w faster lens.
But it will compliment my other - like cameras well ;

Other similar cameras I have are Panasonic LX3 and Olympus 7010.

I shifted from buying film cameras back to digital - but - hopefully I now have plenty.
Thought I was done buying .!!

Very happy day.
Larry

Add ; OK - they emailed me a protection plan ; so now I have a 2 YEAR on it...if that front door/cap gives trouble.

Add #2 ; Price...got it for $137.00 and 2 year plan for $32.00
Camera about mint.

Thanks Jim. You have had your P7000 quite a while now. I was floating around in forums. Around when it came out.

Glad you're happy with yours,I hope to be happy too.

Larry

Add - and I see the camera can shoot square(1:1) - this I like alot.

OK - got it !...seems 'like new'.

Very cold,FedEx. , but I went outside to ; set up the camera.
Got it mostly set up.

10mp , fine,vertual horrizon,got top left wheel set to ISO ...couldn't get the Fn button ...to do it.

Would be nice if the auto ISO would go up when needed.

I have a D5100 with 3 batteries...so I'll get one over to the P7000.

And I do have my nikon wide glass converter...married to my AWESOME nikon 8400.
I'm planning to use this P7000 as a P+S,no converters.A 'with me' camera.

Hopefully, pics today.

You guys might know where I can get all the down low,helpful info,on this camera.I have - to some degree - researched it.

IMPRESSIVE camera.

Happy day Larry

Best, Larry

Good stuff Larry, I really like my P7000. I can understand it being a bit difficult to set up for a point and shoot it has a ton of functions!

Thanks for posting. Jim

Hi Larry,

If you haven't already done so I would suggest down loading the fairly lengthy PDF manual from your Nikon Web site.

I find the manual quite easy to navigate by just clicking on the references to further information, of course apart from the usual PDF Find function.

Yes - I did download the manual
Gotta look at it more...

Can't get my Fn button to 'work'.

OK - I FINALLY downloaded microsoft ICE onto my laptop.Tried 10 times.

Since P7000 can Pano in Portrait position...;

I wanna make big use of it...even though - I'm not useing a high end pano program.

Shot about 7 panos in the yard...made them all into panos...then worked on the best 3.

Here's the results(I'm trying to do better.
Larry

Add -OK, they are 6 shot,6 shot and 5 shot.
First two - which I think look better...I was less aggressive with 1 and 2 ,3 I tried to more 'go for it',didn't work as well.

Well I have the P7700 and while I miss having a viewfinder, the camera takes great pictures. I am used to a D200 and a D90 so it will take some getting use to but so far love it.
