  • 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...

  • 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.
  • Pros: Value for money, Good picture quality, Design and build quality, Feature set
  • Cons: Indoor portrait

  • 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′.

Still, it is something the prospective buyer will have to try for fit. The COOLPIX 7900 is a 7 megapixel 3x zoom...
