The Nikon Coolpix P7700 is a very high quality camera that does a lot of things right. Its build quality is impressive, as are its quick shooting performance, sharp, low distortion lens, very good indoor image quality and excellent movie ability. It has every option a serious photographer could want. However there are a few issues I found troubling, especially for a camera of its overall quality and price. Having to press the on/off switch twice to turn on the camera is annoying, as is the three seconds it takes for the camera to shut down. Then there’s the two second delay between pressing the shutter button and starting a movie recording. Finally, the camera occasionally overexposed outdoor images.
With all the Coolpix P7700 has to offer it’s hard not to recommend it, but potential buyers ought to be aware of its flaws.
