Nikon 26286B Overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Nikon 26286B Reviews

    COOLPIX P7100 Digital Camera is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 131.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera for short trips I own the Nikon D300, which is a great camera. I have all the lens that I need, but sometimes too much to carry around. I brought the P7100 two days ago. Although the camera is still new to me. It seems to be the small camera that I was looking for with all the bells and whistles for some who needs a more advance point and shoot. It is for those shorts trips or daily runs when you would like to have a camera with you, instead of regarding missing that great shoot because you did not take your camera because of the weight. So far it appears to be a good choice for a backup camera. The view finder is great in the sun light. P.S. the 28-200 zoom covers most of the shoots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from P7100 OVF and LCD both great I sold my Olympus XZ-1 with VF-2 because I was totally unable to see anything on the LCD or EVF in bright sunlight here in New Mexico. The P7100 OVF is essential for me. Although it is small, I find it very clear and easy to use. Somewhat to my surprise, the beautiful million pixel LCD is quite useable in bright situations where the XZ-1 LCD was totally useless. It's almost as if the P7100 LCD has an antireflection coating, but I really don't know why it is so much better in bright light. However, I do miss the fast lens of the XZ-1.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A P&S with DSLR features in a classic RF This is a solidly built package, larger and heavier than customary for a current point-and-shoot. However, it has many more manual controls and dials plus a clear, full-size LCD screen along with a usable viewfinder. Reaction speeds are better than typical P&S but not quite up to DSLR levels. However, the fewer decisions you ask it to make automatically the faster it gets. Zoom coverage is all you would normally carry for everyday use, as this camera is not for ornithologists nor for surveillance work. At equivalent 28-200mm it could go a bit wider, and a 24-300mm coverage would be nice but rarely needed. Altogether I am very happy with it, indeed

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing training wheels I had these requirements: -Optical viewfinder; -Larger sensor than entry level point and shoots, for better low light shots and less circuit cross-talk; -Manual controls -Reasonably fast recovery between shots, as well as quick continuous or bracket shooting -Hot shoe The Coolpix 7100 provides all this and a lot more. The picture guality is great, the battery life outstanding. I wanted something to bridge the gap between basic point and shoot and DSLR, so I could learn more photography and understand Nikon's software, with goal in a year or two to buy the DSLR I want. This is the best set of training wheels you could get for that purpose. Also, the NIKKOR lenses are outstanding. 5 stars plus.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little workhorse! Excellent macro capabilities. Love all the dials and buttons and gizmos on the body. Makes me feel like a real photographer! Thing that is not so great about it: I am worried about the un-protected and VERY delicate shutter leaves on the front of the lens. Every time I reach for this camera I find my fingers on these leaves. Eventually I WILL damage them. Nikon, on your next iteration of this camera, either recess these leaves further into the body or give me threading for a lens-protector filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera for travel I am an avid photographer and traveler and typically shoot Nikon DSLR's and wanted a point and shoot that had the advanced features, no shutter lag and would give me good images when I could not carry my normal gear. In the first few weeks I have found this camera to be great! Tons of features, almost overwhelming, fast on start up, very little shutter lag and great images. The only negative I have seen is that at the macro range it does not always lock on the subject intended no matter what auto focus setup I choose. I can get around this with the manual focus setting which magnifies the image and is easy to use, but that is the only negative. I would give this camera a 4.8 out 5. The other item hard to find is a camera bag that fits this well since it is a little larger than the normal P&S camera, but again a minor trade off for the images you can get.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super performance in small package I am a Professional and have used Canon products for the last few years. I always carry a camera 24/7 and my Canon G9 died. In comparing the Canon G12 to the Nikon 7100 there were more features. Have had it for about two weeks and love it. Easy to use and superb photos. My only complaint is the real user's manual is on a cd not printed. I am old school and like to keep reviewing the manual and it is a pain with it being on a cd.
    Date published: 2011-11-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good camera got great The improvements are a significant improvement. 1. P7100 is wickedly fast. 2. Improved LED fold out screen makes shooting more flexible. 3. Adds continuous shooting to RAW/NRW quality images but internal memory limits the shots to 5. This is better than only being able to shoot continuous in Fine. 4. Cleared up the level overlay in the LCD display. Does not block image composition as much. 5. Added Sub-Command dial to front of the camera adds great additional functionality. 6. The ability to zoom while recording video clips is a welcome feature. 7. The additional flexibility in programing User Defined (U1, U2, and U3) settings allows for quick change to most used shooting environments. Would have liked the ability to Geo Tag images. If not internally then the ability to bring a GPS cable to the camera. Do a lot of wilderness shooting that would be nice to have the camera record the location. Lens has a bit of distortion that could use some improvement but not a significant detractor. Would like to see a sun shade attachment added to the accessories list. Good value for performance as a stand alone advanced small camera or an add on to more refined equipment while giving superb point and shoot performance.
