Introduction

The Nikon Coolpix P7100 is the camera giant's latest high-end compact, equipped with a viewfinder, oversized sensor, and RAW-format capabilities. It's an update to last year's P7000 model, and most of the "new" features herein are really just refinements to the performance speed and user interface—the weak points that held its predecessor back from competing head-on with the mighty Canon G12. Read on to see if the P7100 has what it takes to sit atop the enthusiast compact heap.

The P7100 is available now in black, at an MSRP of $499.
