THE 10.1-megapixel Nikon Coolpix P7100 is an updated version of the Coolpix P7000.
Like newer DSLRs the P7100 now comes with a tilting LCD the Nikon Coolpix P7100 sports a busy layout bristling with buttons and dials.
There’s a control here for everything from locking exposure and focus to adjusting exposure compensation on the fly (+/- 2EV).
There is even a thumbwheel at the front and at the back, allowing the user to rapidly scroll through settings.
In terms of shooting with the P7100, here the 7.1x optical zoom with a 28-200mm equivalent range in 35mm film terms, is quick to respond, if noisy. HD video is also included, if at a lesser 720p at 24fps speed.
