Nikon Coolpix P7100


When Nikon released the CoolPix P7000 in 2010, several commentators, including ourselves, remarked on its uncanny resemblance to the Canon Powershot G-series. Clearly intended to compete with Canon's G-series in the high-end compact camera market, the...

Versatile and sharp 28-200mm equivalent lens ; Very good image quality, especially at low ISO settings ; New front control dial adds a useful manual control point and makes operation more ergonomic ; Articulated screen is invaluable for shooting from...

Exposure compensation dial is quite easy to move inadvertently ; Limited manual control in movie mode ; Fn 2 button is not as useful as it could be (can only be set to activate up to 4 options) ; Video recording is limited to 720p ; Optical viewfinder...

Nikon's engineers have done a lot to address the issues that hindered the P7000 like slow operational speed and quirky handling. The P7100's excellent image quality combined with good ergonomics and build quality make this camera a good choice for...

Nikon Coolpix P7100 Review: Superb Images, Intricate Controls


The 10-megapixel Nikon Coolpix P7000 caused quite a stir when it was released last year, thanks to its extended feature set and great image quality. So it's no surprise that anticipation was high for its successor, the Coolpix P7100 ($500 as of...

Excellent image quality and deep imaging controls ; Superb low-light video ; Full manual controls and RAW shooting ; Tilting high-resolution LCD and optical viewfinder ; Long optical zoom range for its class

Complex controls and features can be intimidating ; Maximum video resolution of 720p ; Slow shot-to-shot times

Nikon’s Coolpix P7100 is as complex as it is powerful, with excellent image quality and a feature set to please even the fussiest photographer. Just make sure you’re up for the challenge.

Nikon Coolpix P7100


The Nikon Coolpix P7100 is big on image quality and manual controls, not to mention size and heft. The camera will appeal to you if you are an enthusiast who doesn't always want to lug a D-SLR around, but is a tough sell if you're looking for a...

Lots of physical controls. Tilting LCD. Optical viewfinder. Raw shooting support. Hot shoe.

Bulky. Expensive. HD video limited to 720p24. Some performance and control quirks.

Performance and Conclusions The P7100 performed well in our Lab tests. It was able to start up and grab a shot in about 1.6 seconds, there was a 0.9-second wait time between shots, and the camera recorded a mere 0.1 second on shutter lag tests. It...

Nikon Coolpix P7100 Hands On Preview


Nikon is launching six all new Coolpix series cameras this September, and Steve's got a chance to get an early, hands on sneak peak of each one. First up, we have the Coolpix P7100, which is a follow up to last year's P7000. Holding a P7100 is a fun...

Nikon Coolpix P7100 Review


The Nikon Coolpix P7100 is a the new flagship model in Nikon's extensive range of Coolpix compact digital cameras. The Coolpix P7100 is the successor to the one-year-old P7000, the main additions being a rotary multi selector, second function button,...

The Nikon Coolpix P7100 is a more refined and crucially faster version of the model that it replaces, with an even better handling experience, quicker startup and autofocus times, and much more responsive RAW mode than before. Put the P7100...

Nikon Coolpix P7100


There are upgrades and there are updates, and the Nikon P7100 seems more like a much-needed update to a camera that was great, but not quite up to its full potential. The P7100 delivers greater speed where it's needed, and the optical and image quality...

Faster overall; Very good image quality; Generous 7.1x zoom range; Good controls; Tilting VGA LCD; RAW support

Video limited to 720p24; Other cameras are still faster in some areas; LCD tilts only up or down, not side-to-side; Sub-command dial turns too easily

It was with some trepidation that I approached this review of the Nikon P7100. While there was much to like in the previous model including its good image quality and excellent built-in zoom lens, it was a slow and frustrating camera to use. When you...

Coolpix P7100 Review


Nikon's second try at creating a Canon G12. What is it? The P7100 is the one-year update to the Coolpix P7000 model (which in turn was a substantive update to the P6000). To refresh people's minds, I conditionally recommended the P7000 when I reviewed...

Nikon Coolpix P7100 - Big Image Quality


Made for the enthusiast photographer, the 10-megapixel P7100 features a large 1/1.7-inch CCD image sensor along with a 7.1x optical zoom lens. Read on to find out how it fared in our tests.

Nikon COOLPIX P7100


The Nikon P7100 finds itself in a bit of an odd position. The Canon G12 is its closest competitor, and has a shorter zoom range, but bests the P7100 with better image quality. Other high-end compacts, like Panasonic's LX5 or Olympus's XZ-1, trade that...

Nikon Coolpix P7100 Review: Take Two


The P7100 is not particularly compact, especially when compared to cameras like the LX5, the TL500, or the S100, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Larger cameras provide a more stable shooting platform than smaller cameras. The P7100's...

Excellent image quality, Full exposure range, Good battery life, Superb ergonomics

Expensive, Bulky and heavy, Only 720p HD video offered
