Nikon Coolpix P7700 review – Introduction

With the introduction of the Coolpix P7000 in 2010, Nikon reinvigorated its line of advanced compact cameras, moving away from the small design of the Coolpix P6000 to a camera that looked like a Canon PowerShot G-series model. Although the move was bold, the camera was somewhat slow and clumsy to use. These issues were resolved to some degree with the launch of the Coolpix P7100 the following year, and the latest version, the Nikon Coolpix P7700, has seen even more revisions.
