The Coolpix P7700 sits at the top of Nikon's advanced point-and-shoot lineup with a 12.2MP BSI-CMOS sensor and a 28-200mm equivalent zoom lens, a relatively long telephoto reach in this class. Full 1080p video is offered, along with 8fps continuous shooting and a fully articulated 3.0 inch LCD, but there's no optical viewfinder.

The P7700 provides lots of options for expansion, being compatible with the GP-1 GPS unit, and includes a hotshoe compatible with the full range of Nikon's Speedlight flashguns. Ergonomics are top-notch, with dual command dials for DSLR-like operation along with a generous, textured grip. There's a lot to like about the Coolpix P7700. It fits well in the hand, has a great selection of customizable controls, and offers plenty of manual control. Its articulating LCD makes composing photos easy, and image quality is excellent.

Our review

The Coolpix P7700 offers an impressive feature set, a longer zoom range than most of its competitors, a fully articulating LCD, and very good photo quality. Unfortunately, it is marred by very slow write times, especially in RAW mode which makes continuous shooting a chore, and really forces you to use the fastest memory cards available for best performance.

Good for: Enthusiasts seeking a compact with great image quality at low sensitivities, a plethora of manual controls, an articulating display, and more zoom power than the competition.

Not so good for: Photographers who will shooting RAW files continuously and don't want to wait to take the next photo. And, of course, optical viewfinder lovers.
