Nikon Coolpix P2 review

Just bought one for my friend and tried one day. The grey market is US$191 in my local store. For this price, I really think that it has the best value for money. One more delight is that I find that it has image ratio 3:2 other than the default 4:3. In Dpreview's table it only shows 4:3. For my friend who don't like to edit photo, this feature is very helpful. The operation speed and 2.5 inch screen is very impressive. I have a 3700 and 7900 already, my friend's purchase makes me envy. hehe.

Problems:

- the tripod mount is not in the center.
- the card and battery door feel flimsy (remaining body part is quite rigid)
- battery is only 730mAh, you would better buy one extra battery.
