P7100 Summary

There are upgrades and there are updates, and the Nikon P7100 seems more like a much-needed update to a camera that was great, but not quite up to its full potential. The P7100 delivers greater speed where it's needed, and the optical and image quality are about where you'd expect given the high quality of its predecessor.

Pros

Faster overall; Very good image quality; Generous 7.1x zoom range; Good controls; Tilting VGA LCD; RAW support.

Cons

Video limited to 720p24; Other cameras are still faster in some areas; LCD tilts only up or down, not side-to-side; Sub-command dial turns too easily.

Price and availability

The Nikon Coolpix P7100 started shipping in the US market from mid-September 2011. Approximate pricing was set at US$500, unchanged from that of the preceding P7000 model.
