Nikon Coolpix P2 WiFi digicam reviewed

 

The Nikon Coolpix P2 has all of the standard features you'd expect in a consumer-level compact digicam, including a 5-megapixel CCD, 640x480 30-fps movies, tons of scene presets and a 2.5-inch LCD. And at under $300, it's priced fairly competitively...

Coolpix P2 Digital Camera

 

You'd be forgiven for confusing the Nikon Coolpix P2 with the Coolpix P1. Apart from the different paint job and smaller image sensor, the P2 is identical to its cousin.

Despite the P2's wireless connectivity and some advanced controls, this camera's unexceptional image quality and limited battery life fail to justify its price

Nikon Coolpix P2 Camera Review - PCWorld

 

Wi-Fi connectivity and a good selection of advanced features make the P2 enticing--but it's pricey and battery life is low.

Nikon Coolpix P2 camera

 

Despite the Coolpix P2's wireless connectivity and some advanced controls, this camera's unexceptional image quality and limited battery life fail to justify its price.

Wireless image transfer and printing; some manual controls; includes assorted scene modes

Mediocre image quality; chunky build; short battery life; can’t connect to new networks within camera's interface

The P2includes an 802.11b/g wireless adapter that allows you to wirelessly transfer images to your Mac. To connect the P2 to a wireless network, you have to install and run the Nikon Wireless Camera Setup Utility, which is a pretty simple process. (You...

First megapixels increased. Then cameras began to shrink. Next LCDs ballooned in size while batteries eked out just a few more shots. Each new generation of camera saw one additional scene mode or on-camera image enhancement feature. To be blunt it...

I really like the Nikon Coolpix P2. It works well, has nice features, fluid LCD, good optics and WiFi. If you do not need a powerful flash, I highly recommend it.
