Nikon P7000 for $249 – Deal Alert

Nikon P7000

This is a 50% savings on the Nikon P7000, which retails for $500.  At the time of this post, Amazon has the P7000 for $249.

Considering the spec sheet, the P7000 is probably worth the $250 price point; however, it’s not a camera that I can fully recommend – unless you can really live with the slow speed.

The newer P7100 is a much better camera, but you’ll pay more for it as well.  You can find my P7100 review here.
