Our verdict

Whether you like the size of the Nikon Coolpix P7700 will depend on what you want from a camera. It may be larger and heavier than the competition, but this is balanced with an excellent range of controls that most enthusiast photographers will really appreciate. In bright light the image quality is also impressive, particularly the resolution at ISO 80-200. However, the image quality at higher sensitivities isn’t as good as some of the competition, which hinders its performance in low light.

Optional GPS functionality and wireless flash control are great selling points for the P7700, particularly for existing Nikon DSLR users, but perhaps the biggest advantage over the competition is the 28-200mm (equivalent) lens, which is by far the longest in this class.
