Nikon Coolpix P100 reviewed, found to contain oodles of zoom and superb movie mode


If there is such a thing as a no-compromise point and shooter, the Coolpix P100 might just be it. It throws a back-illuminated 10 megapixel CMOS sensor in behi...

Nikon Coolpix P100


The 10.3-megapixel Nikon Coolpix P100 ($400 as of 9/5/2010) is the rare camera that's as easy to use as it is versatile, thanks to a powerful 26X-optical-zoom lens and an intuitive control layout that offers access to full manual controls as well as...

26X zoom with good telephoto and macro performance ; Manual controls as well as auto and scene modes ; Image stabilization works well at full telephoto ; Superior exposure quality and color accuracy ; Adjustable LCD for odd-angle shots

Disappointing distortion and sharpness scores ; No RAW shooting ; All-plastic build and pop-up flash feel flimsy ; Bad video performance in low light

The powerful P100 does everything easily, thanks to its 26X zoom lens, versatile features, and intuitive controls. Exposure quality and color accuracy are superb, but its photos suffer from distortion and lack of sharpness.

Nikon Coolpix P100

Solid design; overflowing with photo, movie features; very fast shooting performance for its class.

Photo, video quality is weakest part of the package.

There's a lot to like about the Nikon Coolpix P100, but you'll need to keep your photo quality expectations in check to really enjoy it.

Nikon Coolpix P100


The sensors in these cameras are considerably smaller than you will find in a DSLR or mirrorless interchangeable lens model. One of the advantages of a smaller sensor is that, compared to an SLR, you need a physically much smaller lens. As you can see...

Images lack fine details ; High amounts of noise at all ISO settings ; Weird color shift at high ISO settings due to noise reduction ; Super sensitive stereo microphones ; LCD brightness makes photos look a bit overexposed, which is not the actual case

Nikon's Coolpix P100 is loaded with awesome features and plenty of useful exposure modes to choose from, not matter what experience level you may be. It offers excellent shooting performance, nice HD video quality, and a versatile 26x optical zoom...

Nikon Coolpix P100 Review


The 10-megapixel Nikon Coolpix P100 is the successor to last year's 12-megapixel P90 model. That's right, Nikon has reduced the pixel count, if only by a little. The big news is that the new, slightly lower-resolution sensor is of the back-illuminated...

The Nikon Coolpix P100 is a feature-packed superzoom camera that is aimed at the enthusiast photographer who either does not want to buy into an SLR system or wants a lighter, more portable alternative to his or her main workhorse. The chief attraction...

Nikon Coolpix P100 Camera Review


The Nikon Coolpix P100 is a megazoom digital camera that is fast, compact, and packed full of useful features. Read this in-depth review to see how it performs when put to the test in real world situations.

Overall the performance of the Nikon Coolpix P100 was quite good. Although I found that the camera tended to overexpose some of my shots, it was not so serious that it could not be fixed with some minor adjustments in my digital photo editor. This...

Nikon COOLPIX P100


The Nikon COOLPIX P100 replaces the popular P90 super-zoom, extending the zoom reach from 24 to 26x and increasing the resolution of its 3 inch screen to 460k pixels. But by far the biggest change is the image sensor. In a bold move, Nikon has replaced...

26x optical zoom., Fast continuous and burst shooting., Dedicated movie record button., Excellent high ISO noise performance

No shortcut menu., No Vibration Reduction for movies., Very modest 10cm macro., Poor battery life

Huge-zoom camera for fast action


Reviewers agree the Nikon Coolpix P100 ultra-zoom is loaded with stunning features, yet falls short of the competition with unremarkable image quality. CNET's Joshua Goldman praises the P100's solid design and easily managed controls, and says...

Solid design, whopping 26x zoom, flexible LCD screen, excellent burst mode

Mixed image quality, clunky in-camera battery charging, pricey
