Summary: Photography is my hobby, I bought this camera as backup camera when I cannot take my D7000 and heavy lens sets. Pros: -Decent 7.1x zoom -Picture quality is good for point and shoot and small sensor size -Lots of preset modes like fireworks and such -Fast focus -Probably the best button layout in my...
Summary: Nikon P7700 Its not a pocket point n shoot, its not a DSL either. But its small enough to carry around on holiday and not be burdensome. If you are familiar with Nikon DSLs, the learning curve is nil. Otherwise, leave Exposure dial at Auto (green) until you have your sea legs.
Excerpt: I bought the P7700 to complement my Nikon D5100 DSLR and lenses when I'd rather carry something smaller. Early on, I've been astonished by the P7700 image quality and controls. The 28-200 equivalent lens is quite fast at f/2.0-4.0 and performs very well, aside from occasional chromatic aberrations...
Summary: Nikon P700 is similar to Sony DSC-RX100 in a few ways. First, do not let the 12MP, 1/1.7" (10/17") inch sensor deceive you. Its image quality at base ISO is identical to the 20MP, 1" sensor on the RX100. Even at higher ISO settings, the quality is very close, maybe even a tad better.
Summary: 11/15/13 NOTE: There have been 3 firmware updates to date. Current version 1.3. Download from Nikon support. Many have already listed all the features. I won't bore you with a repeat and just give my initial "out of the box" impression. I'll come back in a few weeks with a "User Report".
Summary: My new P7700 is sitting here next to my D800, D5100 and a friend's very nice Canon G15. I also owned the G12. Suffice to say I like cameras! Within this review I will compare it to the Canon G15 as these will be cross-shopped.
Excerpt: I can compare the P7700 to my Canon G10, Panasonic LX5 and Pentax Kx, I like this Nikon a lot. Built like a tank, a lot of commands - I like especially the 3 user's programs, I made one for 'internet photos' (fast low resolution), one for 'people' (fast, 8 MP, external flash) and one for 'maximum...
Summary: In general average picture quality for 12.2 MP camera. Little to expensive for the quality provided. Prize is going down, after couple of month in the market. Excellent exposures in daylight situations, but at night and dim light so so noisy and grainy.
A great little camera with lots of useful functions

Summary: I bought this camera as a backup for my ageing DSLR and found that I enjoyed using it as much as the DSLR. It has all of the manual controls that I like; a wide range of ISO settings, a good range of shutter speed and the aperture range is wide enough for most situations.
Pros: Easy to use, Compact, Build quality, Screen size
