Excerpt: In November 2013 I bought the Nikon p7700 as a complementary camera to my D3200, especially when flying or for weekends away. I cannot say how surprised I am by the quality of the images from this superb compact camera.
Summary: I'm just a regular Joe, not a photographer, but this camera rocks! I have had similar camera's made by either Canon or Nikon, this one is perfect for me and my taste. It has macro capabilities which is important for my tasks. Very sturdy, quiet and most of all it looks and feels great.
Summary: My husband bought this camera for me to take on a pilgrimage to Italy. It's the first fancy camera that I've been able to figure out. I took all of my photos without a flash, some in very low light, and they all turned out so great! I'm excited to keep learning about the features on this camera.
Excellent second camera or first beginner's camera

Summary: This camera is excellent. I have a Nikon D80 and the P7700 has more options on it, just not an interchangeable lens. However, I picked it for its portability, ease of use, and good quality pictures.
Summary: Superb medium size camera in all respects. I got this as a gift for a camera buff --- I was surprised to see how compact it was for such a quality camera. It easily fits in her purse and is very easy to use and she just loves it.
Summary: Boss camera that handles well. Controls are well conceived and thoughtfully laid out. Zooms from (equiv) 28 to 200, has manual, a hot shoe, does RAW. Images have great latitude and rich color with good noise control and characteristically excellent Nikon lens quality.
Summary: I love this camera. I was looking for a compact camera that shoots in RAW and has a lot of features that the bigger SLR cameras have, so I could get professional looking pictures without having to take my big Nikon D7000 everywhere.
Summary: I'm a total newbie when it comes to photography, and I would definitely recommend this as a first camera for amateurs (such as myself). I bought it used for a very low price ($300) but it's a pretty inexpensive camera to begin with, and would've bought it new if buying used wasn't an available...
Summary: If you're a techno-geek, you will love this camera even if you never take a single picture with it. The good news: if you aren't a geek, there's still hope for you. Just set the mode dial to the camera icon and the P7700 becomes a fully automatic (and very high quality!) point-and-shoot.
