Best ergonometrics in a compact The P7100 was purchased after several epiphanies: when travelling I never have room for my DLSR any more, or even a mirror-less system for that matter; 99% of my images are never printed on paper; and as I now need reading glasses viewfinders are of lesser value. The P7100 has become my main camera replacement, taking the place of both my compact and my DSLR for almost everything. Excellent IQ but the outstanding feature is the ergonometrics; I love features like having separate controls for Aperture and Shutter and having things like Flash Compensation at hand without going to the menu. These controls are main selling feature of the camera for me. The tilt out screen is the main feature I like; I generally shoot from the waist. March 16, 2013
The best camera I had so far! It is not easy to choose a camera. So many brands and models! It took me a lot of time to make final decision. I wanted to say "Good bye" to my old 4-megapixel Olympus C-765UZ. I was using it for nearly 10 years! Great camera, but time takes its toll. I chose Coolpix P7100 as replacement. I was dreaming about decent camera, but did not want to invest into bulky dSLR or ever newer light mirrorless systems. I have read many reviews about P7100, paying extra attention to negative reviews. I noticed that many people who was not satisfied with P7100 claim to be dSLR users. Would you expect them to be fully satisfied with relatively simpler and slower camera? I would not. For me, this camera is a huge step forward from my 10-year-old Olympus. P7100 is much faster. Quality is much better. Screen is much bigger and tilting. Manual controls are much easier to access using plenty of dials. No, I don't touch them by accident like some users reported. I can control my fingers with high precision. I will have a lot of time learning how to use all the features presented in this camera, and I am looking forward to it. This camera might not be perfect for everyone, and I am sure I will find something that I would not like, but hey, is there anything perfect in the world? I don't think so. I am very happy with this camera, and I got it for just $325 dollars including shipping, Onyx bag and 4GB memory card. December 26, 2012
great camera-little dslr This is a great camera. I have a nikon d7000 which is nikons best dx camera. I use this camera when i need a light camera. The camera is great in low light. I use a sb-400 flash with this camera a great combo. I would like to have 1080p but video is good. October 9, 2012
Big improvement over P7000 Major improvement over P7000. Seems faster and I appreciate the pull-out LCD to help take photos from different angles. When shooting in manual mode it's a big help to have the front dial for quickly, easily changing Aperture. August 20, 2012
Great for everyday photography I am still in the process of learning how to use this camera. There are so many different features on it. I like that I can set it on automatic and roll with the flow, along with being able to use various settings, including manual, for more specialized shooting. Highly recommended as the camera to have with you for everyday use rather than carrying around a full blown digital SLR and lenses. Not that I plan to give up the SLR anytime soon. My only gripe is that I wish Nikon had included a case with the camera like the nice leather case that came bundled with the Coolpix S8100 I bought at Costco. Are you listening Nikon? August 15, 2012
