Nikon Coolpix P7700 review

Dynamic range

As we have seen recently with other advanced compact cameras, the dynamic range has increased slightly with improvements such as backlit CMOS sensors. There is still some restriction compared to cameras with larger sensors, but on the whole, with careful metering in tricky situations, I found the Nikon Coolpix P7700 to have an acceptable dynamic range. Highlights were more prone to burning out, but it is surprising how much detail can be recovered in raw files, in what appear to be very dense shadow areas.
