  • 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 mode with electronic VR, Good ISO 400 performance, Pretty fast operation, Huge range of 'hand-holding' features for the novice, Best Shot Selector, Well thought out controls ...
  • 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, Red-eye mode means 6 second shot-to-shot time, Too many button presses to change basic settings - presumably to avoid accidents, No exposure information on-screen, No contro...

  • 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 delivers very good image quality in a compact, attractive and solidly built body. The Nikon 7900's Auto Mode is more like Programmed Auto, allowing you to set ISO and dial in exposure compensation.

  • Conclusion: I like the Nikon Coolpix 7900. It feels good when you pick it up and it has a touch of class too. This is backed up by a good picture quality. In terms of price it is a fair bit cheaper than its most similar rivals the Canon IXUS 700 and the Casio EXILIM EX Z750. This could well tip the decision to buy in favour of the Coolpix 7900.
  • Pros: Value for money, Good picture quality, Design and build quality, Feature set
  • Cons: Indoor portrait

[ REVIEW—NIKON Coolpix 7900 ]

DPexpert
7 July 2011
  • Excerpt: $799 4.9 The has been named Best Digital Compact Camera by the European Technical Image Press Association. [July 2005] The judges singled out for attention: “several new features which make it the ‘Best Digital Compact Camera 2005′. The D-Lighting function adds light and detail to dark areas of shots, while leaving brighter areas unaffected. The In-Camera Red-Eye Fix function automatically detects and corrects red-eye in flash photos.
  • Pros: dpexpert’s only disgreement with the judges concerns the merits of the Face-priority auto focus which we think is one of the weirdest gimmicks to be incorporated into a digital camera. Still, it is something the prospective buyer will have to try for fit. The COOLPIX 7900 is a 7 megapixel 3x zoom camera which also comes in a 5900 5mp version. They are both very attractive cameras, either in the black or silver livery. They are a little bulkier than the competition bec...

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix 7900 is a compact, stylish and easy to use digital camera that produces great image quality. Chromatic aberrations are very well controlled to the point of almost being non-existent, with hardly any evidence of purple fringing or other unwanted effects. The 7 megapixel sensor means that there is some noise at ISO 200 and a lot of noise at ISO 400, more so than at the same speeds on the 5 megapixel Nikon Coolpix 5900.

  • Summary: Nikon has produced another winner, a compact and easy-to-use camera that produces outstanding pictures time after time, and also has some innovative high-tech features that help you take better photos. If this is Nikon’s pattern for future development then other manufacturers will have to run to catch up. The nikon 7900 is a really good product for those who are starting in the photography world. It helped me a lot. Highly recomended.
