"Great Picture taker and Excellent Travel Camera!"
3 weeks ago
Pros: Battery life for me was decent Good clear pictures once you tweak the camera Large LCD Screen Low noise Great Travel Camera or backpacking for better shots Viewfinder :) Great laid out controls on camera.
Cons: Articulating screen, which the new P7800 has. Slow processing speeds compared to newer competition A tad better grip would have been nice 720P decent but now good cameras have 1080p/60fps Newer models zoom faster.
Summary: Great take along camera. Fantastic quality. Very slow processing times, between the photos. When my DSLr's are at home, this camera comes along. Havine a viewfinder, along with a back screen is a major plus.
Summary: Normally I shoot with a Nikon DSLR camera and an 18 -200mm zoom. Problem is, its heavy! So I got this little camera to take with me on long hikes, and when I travel and don't have enough room to take a lot of camera gear. What I like about it is it has all the adjustments I use on my DSLR, it has a view finder, a reasonable range of zoom, you can take macro closeups, you can use all Nikon accessories like the wireless remote and flash, and it is sooo light weight.
if you are a nikon user and nee sub camera for you DSLR, It is the one i

Summary: New one is P7100. I just got this one on ebay for under 280 It's "nice P&S camera " in one word. I have used several P&S cameras Sigma DP1, Sigma DP2, Fuji X100 and Sony Nex 5. Picture quality is not excellent like other APS-C sensor size camera but it's still good image quality with it sensor size. There are many buttons to control the camera and you can control the camera easily like DSLR (I'm a Canon 1D mk2N and 5D Mk2 user)cameras.
Summary: I'm having a great time with this thing. It takes really good pictures and there are a bunch of little dials and buttons on it that provide quick adjustments. I had it for a little over a month and had no problems so far (knock on wood). The only thing I want to mention is that it's a little bulky and will not fit into your pants pocket. Also, I have the issue of accidentally hitting buttons when I take pictures. No big deal.
Summary: I've been shooting with Nikon gear for 10 years - first a film N55, then an N65, then the digital D50, and then the D3100. I've become accustomed to having precise control over my images, and being able to have wide latitude to edit them later with RAW files. When it came time to go overseas on vacation, I didn't want to lug a huge camera around with me. I wanted something I could fit in the side pocket of a backpack and have quick access to.
Summary: There is nothing I can say that hasn't already been said a hundred times before about what's great about this camera. What I can say is that you can buy a P7000 and with a few clicks of the mouse, have a P7100. Nikon released a firmware update that corresponds with the enhanced features of the P7100, fixing all of the RAW writing problems. Another problem with editing images stems from the computer monitor, NOT the P7000.
