  • NIKKOR wide-angle 7.1x zoom lens

Nikon Coolpix P7100 compact camera
Just over a year ago Nikon released the Coolpix P7000 to slug it out with Canon’s PowerShot G12. Both cameras appeal to the high-end consumer who wants most of the controls and features of a DSLR in the body of a compact. With the Coolpix P7100, Nikon introduces some welcome new features and tweaks including a tilting screen and an improved user interface, yet like the aging G12, it remains a 10Mp snapper.

Nikon Coolpix P7100 Review
The Nikon Coolpix P7100 is a compact digital camera filled with features to satisfy advanced users. It is built around a 10 megapixels CCD sensor behind a 7X wide-angle optical zoom lens with built-in image stabilization. This camera has a full-set of manual-controls, including manual-focusing, custom white-balance, bracketing and image parameters. It has a number of positively high-end features like a hot-shoe, a digital-level, an optical-tunnel viewfinder, an ND filter and RAW capabilities. Its captures 720p HD video recording with stereo sound either from the built-in microphone or an external one audio source.

Nikon Coolpix P7100
The Nikon Coolpix P7100 is the camera giant’s latest high-end compact, equipped with a viewfinder, oversized sensor, and RAW-format capabilities. It’s an update to last year’s P7000 model, and most of the “new” features herein are really just refinements to the performance speed and user interface—the weak points that held its predecessor back from competing head-on with the mighty Canon G12. Read on to see if the P7100 has what it takes to sit atop the enthusiast compact heap.

Product Review: Nikon Coolpix P7100 Camera
If Nikon had released the P7100 as its new Coolpix camera model a year ago instead of the disappointing P7000, it would have saved everyone a lot of time and money. But alas, that’s how imaging and consumer electronic companies sometimes work. They release a buggy “first” model and then fix the mistakes in the inevitable follow-up. It’s why “early adopters” sometimes feel like guinea pigs.

Nikon Coolpix P7100 Review
If you’re dithering between a mirrorless and a DSLR camera for serious, down-to-earth photography, this one from Nikon fits exactly that role.
Sure, the lens is fixed but it is a Nikkor that equates to 28-200mm as a 35 SLR equivalent: a 7.1x enlargement in fact. Very cleverly, Nikon has also installed an optical viewfinder: tiny but useful.

Canon G12 vs. Nikon P7100 vs…
The 2011 Holiday Season is upon us and I’m sure a lot of photographers would love to receive either the Canon PowerShot G12 or the Nikon Coolpix P7100 as a gift. The Canon G-Series cameras have long been among the most popular compact digital cameras – especially for serious photographers who want something small, light and powerful to compliment their digital SLR gear. The Nikon Coolpix P7100 is Nikon’s answer to the Canon G-Series cameras. I took a closer look at both cameras at the recent PhotoPlus show in New York and was reminded how nice they really are. I decided to compare the G12 and P7100 to find out where the key differences lie.

Nikon Coolpix P7100 Review
The Nikon P7100 is the latest prosumer compact in the Coolpix lineup. When I reviewed the Nikon P7000 earlier this year, my biggest complaint was the speed of the camera in terms of shot-to-shot raw image capture and navigation of the menu system. Nikon has clearly addressed those concerns in the P7100 model, allowing the camera to compete on level ground with Canon’s G12 and other prosumer compact cameras.

Nikon Coolpix P7100 review
Nikon has proved once and for all that there are more important things in life than megapixels. With consistently sharp images, great colours and a better-than-average movie mode, the £379 Coolpix P7100 has plenty to recommend it.
Nikon has opted for quality over quantity here, pinning the P7100's resolution at a conservative 10.1 megapixels. Don't let that put you off. Pure pixel counts are rarely the defining factor when it comes to judging a camera -- a fact proved by this chunky, accomplished snapper.
With versatile controls, a sharp lens and a keen price -- you can pick one up for £379 -- it's a winner on every front.

Nikon Coolpix P7100 review
Has Canon's PowerShot G-series finally met its match?
The Nikon Coolpix P7100 is the brand's new replacement for its flagship advanced compact camera - the Coolpix P7000 - and comes with a number of new and upgraded features over its predecessor, including some fresh controls, a high-resolution tilting LCD display and a revised user interface, to name a few.
The Nikon Coolpix P7000 was originally launched just over a year ago in order to compete with Canon's revered PowerShot G-series, matching its main rival - the Canon PowerShot G12 - in terms of key specifications, full manual control and premium build quality. It also proved itself capable of producing beautiful images straight out of the camera. Where it fell short, however, was in its handling, delivering a sluggish shooting experience.

Nikon Coolpix P7100 review
As high-end as compacts come?
Nikon’s P7100 is built with the high-end user in mind. This 10.1-megapixel, 7.1x optical zoom compact is one of a handful to come equipped with an optical viewfinder - although with a 80 percent field of view it does have its limitations - and the body is laden with numerous control dials and buttons that make it feel rather DSLR-like in use.
When the P7000 was released last year it failed to captivate us quite as much as we’d hoped. Indeed it couldn’t knock Canon’s G12 off the compact camera top spot. With that in mind, can the P7100 address its predecessor’s issues to become it the king of the compacts?

Nikon Coolpix P7100 Review
Nikon's second try at creating a Canon G12.
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 it, citing too many small issues like focus and raw write performance. Image quality was quite good with the P7000 (for a compact camera), which made the small things that got in the way quite annoying.
So what did the P7100 change?

Digital Photography Equipment Review—The Nikon Coolpix P7100 Camera
Late summer 2011 saw the release of six new Nikon Coolpix cameras, including the P7100, which is an obvious attempt to take advantage of the success of the earlier Coolpix P7000. As smart companies will do, Nikon listened to what P7000 users had to say about the deficiencies of that model, and then gave consumers what they wanted in the P7100. There was nothing wrong with the previous model’s image quality, but the slow speed that received so many comments was improved in the P7100 by adding an EXPEED C2 processor that is typically found in Nikon DSLRs. Other slow operational issues were addressed to create less shutter lag and faster power-on time and focusing.

Nikon P7100 Compact Camera – First Look
As many of you know, my personal choice for compact camera has been the Nikon P7000.
It’s been very reliable and I’ve really enjoyed it. Now Nikon has updated the P7000 with the P7100. My friend Joel at Adorama made sure I had one of the first production units shipping anywhere in the USA and here’s my first look.
