Conclusion: In an increasingly crowded 7MP compact market, the Coolpix 7900 has much to recommend it. Design, build and ease of use are excellent, and there is a surprising amount of power hidden in the extensive menus, offering control over focus, metering, white balance and so on for those who like to tweak.
Pros: Very compact and pocketable, Beautifully built and all-metal construction, Good resolution and good edge-to-edge consistency, Excellent natural color and exposure - very few blown highlights, Manual (custom) white balance, Fast focus and very responsive performance overall, High performance movie...
Cons: Images soft (though they respond well to unsharp masking), Very poor low light focus - even with the new AF illuminator, Some focus errors at the long end of the zoom even in good light, Low ISO results relatively noisy using default settings, Finest quality JPEG is still quite heavily compressed...
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix 7900 is very easy to
use and effortlessly captures well-exposed images
with Point-and-Shoot simplicty. With 7.1MP resolution,
an ED lens, and fast operation, the Nikon 7900

attractive and solidly built body.
