Reasons for D7000 selection as the TIPA Awards 2011's Best D-SLR Advanced
The Nikon D7000 impressed us as the definition of a state-of-the-art DX-format D-SLR (APS-C size) with its 16.2-MP CMOS sensor, 6-fps continuous shooting for up to 100 shots and ability to record full 1080p HD movies with full-time AF. With twin SD card slots, a 100% viewfinder and a bright 3-inch LCD for live view operation, the camera is extremely versatile in the field. The magnesium alloy top and rear covers, special weather and dust seals plus 150,000-cycle rated shutter system give it a pro feel.
Reasons for COOLPIX P300 selection as the TIPA Awards 2011's Best General Compact Camera
The Nikon COOLPIX P300 is a stylish compact camera with a remarkably powerful f/1.8 lens starting at the 24 mm (35 mm equivalent) focal length and offering 4.2x optical zoom. The use of High Refraction Index glass further ensures sharp, high-contrast images. Combined with its powerful 12.2-megapixel backside illumination CMOS sensor, this camera provides excellent image quality even in dim lighting conditions. The P300 can record movies in full HD (1080 p), but also in slow motion with a recording speed of up to 120 fps.
