Jeff Keller gets hands-on with Nikon's mid-range digicam...
The folks at the Digital Camera Resource Page have now posted their review of Nikon's Coolpix 775 digital camera, a model that was first announced back in April of this year. It seems Jeff wasn't too pleased with the camera though, concluding:
"I've been a fan of Nikon's Coolpix line of cameras for a long time. I even bought a Coolpix 950 back in the early days of this site. My advice here is to skip over the Coolpix 775, however. It's not that it's a bad camera -- not at all -- it's just average. Most of the photos were decent, but I couldn't help but notice that many photos had case of the "jaggies". The feature set is pretty basic -- there are no bells and whistles here. If you're looking for a basic point-and-shoot camera, do consider the Coolpix 775. But my honest advice would be to consider the competition instead."

You'll also find two further opinions in reviews from our friends at Steve's Digicams and the Digital Photography Review...
