The Nikon Coolpix P7100 and cameras like it represent a quirky in-between-breed — even more so than the mirrorless, interchangeable lens models taking over the market. You're buying a point and shoot without the convenience of fitting it in...

REVIEW—NIKON Coolpix P7100] by terry on 15 March 2012 Price: $600 Big and beautiful THE LOW-DOWN: This 10 megapixel camera comes with a 28–200mm (film equivalent) image-stabilised lens. It is the replacement for the P7000 which was not...

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...

Nikon have sensibly retained all the best features of the P7000 and made sensible improvements to processing times, added a more flexible monitor and some extra effects, plus increased customised settings and rapid change options....

That said, the price tag on this camera will by itself exclude most happy snappers, but you do get what you pay for, as the Nikon Coolpix P7100 has no major flaws and delivers very satisfying images. With the PowerShot G12 over a year old now, the...

A welcome refinement to the P7000 and a pleasure to use, but the sensor isn't up to current standards at this price...

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 bested our Editors’ Choice...

Why you’d buy the P7100: multiple external control points; pocketable.Why you wouldn’t: you want Full HD; the 7.1x zoom range is not enough for you.Having waded through a mountain of DSLRs, mirrorless models and piles of boring...

While it's too large to fit inside a pocket, the P7100 provides all of the functionality and quality that you could need. It's a shame that its performance is not class beating, otherwise it would easily make a great companion to an SLR or...

Best suited to existing Nikon DSLR users, the brick-like Coolpix P7100 ‘compact’ offers similar heft and control set, including the ability to shoot top quality Raw files alongside humble JPEG. Following on from the P7000 this 10.1 megapixel...

Not only is the Nikon P7100 the equal of the current Canon PowerShot G12, in many ways it's superior. For a start it's cheaper, offers a wider focal range, while the LCD monitor is larger and sharper too. Of course it's not perfect; the 720p...

The Nikon Coolpix P7100 is available in India at a street price of Rs. 20,000. This camera is a delight to use for amateurs, professionals, as well as enthusiast level photographers. The ability to tinker around with all the settings allows one to...

The Nikon P7100 is the camera that its predecessor should have been. If you have been holding out on the P7000 because of its questionable performance, wait no longer. Nikon has delivered a worthy raw-shooting competitor to the Canon G12.If...

The Nikon CoolPix P7100 is a decent-quality expert compact. It has been nicely designed, built with quality and has a versatile zoom lens with an excellent macro mode. On the whole, the small-format CCD takes nice pictures but struggles with higher...

By What Digital Camera on 90

The previous P7000 was a great advanced compact, but it fell down with its slow Raw capture speed. The P7100 manages to cut waiting time right down and, although it's still not the fastest on the market, it's definitely quicker. Other additions,...

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...

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...

The P7100 addresses its predecessor’s speed issues and, as a result, is an excellent high-spec compact. Expect great picture quality and bags of controls at your fingertips. But with Compact System Cameras so prevalent this last year, the P7100...

Closer, and maybe worth a(n inexpensive) cigar now. It seems clear that Nikon knew what they needed to address to improve the P7000. They managed to deal with almost all of it except one thing: raw write performance. The P7100 handles well, performs...
