4.0 out of 5 stars P7100 - Nicely Done, October 1, 2011
This review is from: Nikon COOLPIX P7100 10.1 MP Digital Camera with 7.1x Optical Zoom NIKKOR ED Glass Lens and 3-Inch Vari-Angle LCD (Camera)
I'm a very experienced and knowledgeable photographer, but it's now how I make my living. I normally use a Nikon D3s. That monster wonderfully serves its purpose as Nikon's top-of-the-line-do-it-all pro camera. But it's BIG and HEAVY, often causing certain non-photographers to comment, "It must take really great pictures," or "OMG, it's soooo big..." (in response to the latter, I simply deepen my voice and say, "Why, thank you."). I wanted a small camera as an alternative to carrying the D3s to family functions and other snapshot-worthy occasions, and which I can easily take everywhere and put in a coat pocket. After several days with the camera so far, I think the image quality is excellent, and I'm impressed with the features and and configuration options of the P7100. The camera produces sharp, saturated, properly exposed pictures right out of the box in full Auto mode, but also has the traditional Nikon P S A and M modes. Menu options are easy to understand and configure by just playing around with them. It's not rocket science. The camera shoots Raw images, so you can edit, tweak and improve them in Nikon's Capture NX2 or Adobe Lightroom.

Overall, I'm very satisfied with the P7100's performance. It fulfills the purposes for which I got it admirably. Yes, it's rather pricey for a camera of this size, but its very feature-rich. Overall, I'm very satisfied. And it's a fly-weight compared to a pro DSLR. Nicely done, Nikon. Now I will have to get used to people saying, "It's like, sooo little....")

Nice to hear a D3s shooter commenting on how much he likes the P7100. Here's a tip: if you want a Nikon DSLR so lightweight you won't believe it but very competent, try the D5100. It's probably half the weight of your D3s (or maybe even a third the weight, plus the lenses will be lighter) but has clean ISO to 3200. I know, I own one.
