I am seriously looking at the new P712 that was just released in July.
Are there any reviews in the works?

It looks like a winner but I want more information on it before I step off the bridge.

Thanks

On dpreview forum some members have posted its photos, they are stunning. Noise levels are bit more. dpphotojournal, popphoto, cnet and camerareviews.com has its review or hands on review. Keep watch on those sites.

Some folks in this forum actually think it looks like a wiener, but it looks to me like the P850 with a few more megapixels, faster autofocus.... and.... and.... and that's about it!

The thing that impressed me is the fast capture time and the faster autofocus times.

What is "noise" and how does it affect pictures? I saw somewhere that it is noisy at
ISO200 and higher.

Also, my current z7590 is great but the LCD is almost useless in outdoor daylight, and the capture time between shots is pretty slow.
Hope the P712 is better in that respect.

I want to see one before I buy it.

"Noise" is analogous to what is called "grain" or "graininess" in film photography. Basically the faster the ISO speed of the film, the more grainy the picture. With typical consumer level digital cameras, you start seeing noticeable "noise" with the ISO set above 200 and it may get totally objectionable when you go to 400 or beyond. A pro quality DSLR, on the other hand, can usually go to very high ISO settings without generating too much noise in the image. So.... if you are shooting indoors in low light and the camera is set to 200 or it automatically adjusts itself, you can expect quite a bit of noise.
