Nikon Coolpix P2 digital camera

 

As digital compacts go, the P2 (and its 8-megapixel brother, the otherwise identical P1) is a tad underwhelming to look at, with ‘traditional' styling lines making it look a plain Jane when compared to many of the style driven ultra compact models on...

Good metering, good AF and exposure control. Superb range of shooting features, Nikon ‘Help’ system

No optical viewfinder, no storage card supplied, Wi-Fi connection issues

Nikon's P2 offers some great shooting features and the convenience of Wi-Fi connectivity but in a rather bland looking package. That said it takes great pictures and is easy to use (bar the Wi-Fi fiddles I had) but at the end of the day that is what...

Nikon Coolpix P2 review

 

The P2 is for lovers of great-quality photographs

Stunning image quality ; Excellent lens sharpness ; Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity ; Supremely well thought out

5Mp image size may be a little limiting

The excellent noise performance and its physically large 1/1.8-inch 5Mp sensor makes for great performance and value

Very good image quality.Program and Aperture Priority modes. 2.5 inch LCD monitor. 3.5X zoom with little distortion.No chromatic aberration.Good flash photos when the flash output is increased.Low sensitivity to noise ; Wireless capability

Image focus too soft when the zoom is at its maximum telephoto and the focus at infinity.No optical viewfinder.LCD monitor a bit hard to see outdoors in sunlight.Use of wireless capability requires some experience with Wi-Fi

It's all but impossible to find anything with a Nikon badge on it that has duff build quality, and the Coolpix P2 looks and feels great. With its strong photographic heritage, the P2 is supremely well thought out.

Nikon Coolpix P2

 

Packing 15 scene assist modes, wireless connectivity, a 3.5x zoom lens and a raft of other features into a pocket-size metal body, the Nikon Coolpix P2 promises alot. Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at whether this camera delivers on these promises.

Good build quality; Excellent image quality; Well thought out design; Bags of features

Images at ISO400 are noisy

Nikon Coolpix P2 Review. This is a well made, solid digital camera. It has built in WiFi technology enabling you to transfer images from the camera to computer without the need for a cable.

Wireless transfer to PC ; Colours

Indoor portrait ; Limited flash range

I like the Nikon Coolpix P2. It is the first digital camera I have tested to offer the ease of wi-fi transmission to the computer. It takes a good photo and is worth a close look.

At last, an end to scrabbling around with a USB cable desperately trying to coax your digital camera to connect to your computer.

Review of the Nikon Coolpix P2 - Digital SLR Reviews

 

It has to be said that the P2 looks pretty standard in so far as it is an example of the latest in high-tech gadetry.
