The Nikon COOLPIX P7100 Digital Camera lets you take your creativity wherever you go. Whether you're at a party, on vacation, or you simply want a lightweight option to carry around, the P7100 is ready to go wherever you go! While plenty of cameras can do that, they can't all provide you with the same amazing versatility and creativity options that this compact Nikon can.
Before we even get to the in-camera special effects or the manual options, let's consider that this "point-and-shoot" (technically anyway) has 10.1MP of power behind it and a 1/1.7" CCD image sensor. That sensor, along with the EXPEED C2 Image Processor, works to not only create beautiful and incredibly detailed images; the two ensure a fast and efficient camera. Often referred to as the heart of the camera, these two enable features like high-speed continuous shooting and the noise-reduction filter.
More than a still camera though, the P7100 also captures 720p high definition video with stereo sound. That translates into great looking and great sounding videos on your HDTV for the whole family to enjoy. Additional movie recording features include optical zoom control and auto focus.
Of course, the P7100 wouldn't get you very far without a stellar lens. The 7.1x Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens doesn't disappoint. With a 28-200mm (35mm equivalent) focal range you can go from wide-angle to telephoto without even blinking an eye. Those close-up shots and all the sweeping vistas your heart desires will be easily within your reach. The lens also works together with the camera's 4-Way VR image stabilization system for clean, motion-free images.
While the hallmark of a pocket camera is the ability to shoot on fully automatic, Nikon knows you want to do more than that with the P7100. That's why they gave the camera versatile manual controls. There's even a front command dial so you're fully in charge of operating the camera at all times. Other features, such as an ISO of 3200, bracketing options, and even a virtual horizon, ensure that you'll get just the shot you want. Of course, the choice of four classic exposure modes (P/S/A/M) is essential to this type of shooting. Add the aforementioned in-camera special effects and other features like macro capture and HDR setting, and you've got one great little camera that puts the joy back into point-and-shoot photography.
