Nikon COOLPIX P7100 Review
|February 20, 2012||Posted by admin under Nikon|
A high-grade 10.1-MP camera in a handsome, rugged, metal body, the P7100 features a built-in 28-200 mm f/2.8-5.6 ED lens, an optical viewfinder and a 3-inch tillable articulated (921,000-dot) LCD. It offers numerous automatic and manual functions and improved aspects: faster autofocus and Raw recording, quicker response to control inputs, extra special effects modes and superior noise reduction.
Noteworthy features include a hot shoe for an external flash, versatile 12-point AF system and 1280 x 720p Movie mode.

Performance overall is pretty good
Nikon had previously excelled with its four-figured P-series of Coolpix models. In the P7100 there is a new “Low noise night mode” from ISO 400 up to 12,800. Full PASM controls remain, and are now complemented with a set of one-click Effects which enhance images in post-production.
A new front command dial improves usability, and when combined with the new second ‘fn’ button you rarely need to enter any menus to alter settings. The tiltable LCD copes well in difficult lighting and is accompanied by a viewfinder, though it has only 80% coverage.
The previous P7000 was a great advanced compact, but it fell down with its slow Raw capture speed. The P7100 cuts the waiting time right down, although it is still not the fastest on the market.
- Superior Nikon image quality with 7.1x Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens and large 10.1-MP, 1/1.7-in. CCD sensor
- Fast and responsive with Nikon’s EXPEED C2 image processing engine; shoot RAW files for added image control and flexibility
- Versatile manual controls, including front command dial and exclusive quick menu puts the photographer in charge of camera operation
- HD movie (720p) with stereo sound recording using built-in microphone; optical zoom control and autofocus are available during recording
- 3-inch ultra-high resolution (921,000-dot) Vari-Angle monitor with Clear Color display and anti-reflective coating; for added viewing convenience an optical viewfinder is also provided
A good camera for the serious hobbyist
Great compact camera
Image quality is very good. In low light you can shoot up to ISO 800 without image noise becoming much of an issue.
This is a camera for people who want full creative control.Incoming search terms:
