Nikon Coolpix P100

 

With a 26x optical zoom can the Nikon P100 really produce the kind of images to justify the huge magnification?

Huge zoom, Sharp images, Decent build quality

Unrealistic colour reproduction, Sluggish start-up, Underpowered image stabilisation

26x optical zoom and HD movie recording make this a decent step-up from a compact

Nikon Coolpix P100 camera

 

The Coolpix P100 is the first Nikon bridge camera with Full HD 1080p resolution movie capture with stereo sound, it also has a remarkable 26x Nikon ED VR zoom lens. That and a CMOS sensor packing 10.3 megapixels makes it a formidable looking...

Good image quality - even at higher sensitivities, handling, design, ease of use, menus, vari-angle screen, HD movies

EVF, lack of direct controls for some key features, plastic build, stereo microphones pick up mechanical noise as lens zooms

The Nikon Coolpix P100 is a major step forward in terms of banishing the bane of the compact camera - image noise - though it does look fairly pricey. But that price gets you a superb lens (its remarkable focal range is ably illustrated by the two...

The controls could be more immediate, but the sharp lens and low-noise sensor are capable of great results

Nikon Coolpix P100 review

 

Smaller and cheaper than a digital SLR but with performance that dwarfs a compact, the Nikon Coolpix P100 is bridge camera with 1080p HD video capability.

With a lightweight but well-built frame, amazing zoom and the ability to capture broad vistas, the Nikon Coolpix P100’s capabilities are admirable. The video mode is far more flexible than the perfunctory nod to video capture on most cameras and we...

Nikon - COOLPIX P100

 

If you can cast your mind back about a year, you'll remember that Nikon brought out the COOLPIX P90 as a solidly built super-zoom ‘bridge' camera which provided several of the features belonging to typical DSLR ...

The P100 is unlikely to appeal to serious photographers, as its picture quality isn't top of the class - but its range of shooting options, plus the addition of Full HD movies and a massive zoom will attract the compact crowd demanding more.

Nikon Coolpix P100

 

Does the Nikon P100's feature list outweigh image quality issues?

26x zoom is significant, 1080p movie, ease of use when shooting, vari-angle screen

build quality, slow start up time, poor image quality, poor LCD screen viewing angle

For anyone seeking to buy a superzoom, the P100 is likely to make it onto your shortlist. With a strong features list it's an appealing option, but the overall weak picture quality and variety of performance issues are certainly a let down. Many...

The bridge with incredible reach

A feature-packed model that's ideal for those looking to experiment with manual controls. The long zoom and lightweight body make it a great travel camera

This camera is packed with features that should appeal to the beginner amateur photographer. It has very good build and construction, and excellent handling. An extra large 3.0 in. Vari-angle LCD has 460k-dot resolution and makes it super easy to take...
