What got me interested first was the swivel screen. What I hate about G type Canon cameras is the "brick" style body which makes it hard to hold in your hands. The G type video has never been something to write home.

After reading the positive evaluations that started to appear on the new P7700, I really got interested. All the important photography features that I like are available. I like the fact that there are three rotary buttons for the settings (less digging into menus). The fact that RAW is slow is certainly not a serious problem since I always shoot JPEGs.

So this last weekend I purchased the P7700 and I am very, very impressed with this product. The metal body is easy to hold and the weight conveys a sense of quality. I made quite a few LX3 and P7700 comparison shots. The exposure, sharpness and colours of the P7700 are just as good if not better than those of the LX3.

I am glad that Nikon finally decided to produce a quality Coolpix that compares advantageously to the competition.
