Nikon Coolpix P2 review
May 18, 2007

This camera has a large LCD window, which was a huge step-up from our previous Nikon, a CoolPix 2500. While we missed the flexibility the 2500 gave us with the swivel lens housing, the P2 definitely produced better pictures. I say produced because my daughter dropped the camera and ruined the lens mechanism.

Picture to picture time was reasonably fast with the Nikon rechargeable battery and a SanDisk UltraII memory card. I was generally pretty happy with this camera, despite the high (mid US $360 range) for a 5 megapixel.

We never used the WiFi feature, though we have an Airport Base Station and two WiFi Macs in the house.

We eventually replaced this camera with a Nikon L4, but found that the low light pictures were unacceptable, due to the small lens and high minimum f-stop. The P2 is still better than the camera we finally settled on, which is the Nikon L1.
