Nikon COOLPIX P7700 Review – Verdict

There’s little doubt that that P7700 is a formidable compact camera, and only really compromised by its slow Raw write times and very minor handling issues. Images are detailed, exposures are largely accurate and the Auto White Balance system is particularly worthy of acclaim, while the lens performs admirably considering the focal range on offer.

While it certainly true that its image quality cannot match that of larger-sensor Compact System Cameras, it’s not far behind either. Indeed, for the target market, a slight trade off in terms of image quality may be a worthwhile sacrifice when the benefits of a pocketable camera with a 7.1x zoom range are considered.
