Re: P770 gives poor dynamic range / brightness results?

The reality of this is the JPEG engine of the P7700 is not punchy like other cameras. As I indicated this is a DECISION that Nikon makes so you can tune a photo the way you like.

Here are three shots. The 1st is from a Canon SD1400. The 2nd is from the P7700 and the 3rd is a somewhat overprocessed shot from the P7700 showing that you can easily mimic the "punchy" results from other cameras.

The P7700 does tend to underexpose slightly, but you can easily compensate for this. Frankly I find it will hold details better and prevent blow-outs. The REAL looking photo lies somewhere between the 2nd and 3rd.
