Our review

The Nikon P100 offers an impressive feature set and decent image quality. The user interface leaves some room for improvement though.

Good for: Feature freaks who want a long zoom, 1080p HD video and CMOS high speed capture

Not so good for: Photographers who like to change settings frequently
