Nikon Coolpix P7800 review – The competition

Nikon’s P series has always faced competition from Canon’s PowerShot G-series compacts. However, further rivals now exist in the form of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II, Fujifilm XF1 and Ricoh GR, all of which offer larger sensors. The RX100 II (currently around £399) features a 1in sensor capable of producing highly detailed images, and has a larger dynamic range than the 1.1/7in sensor used in the Nikon Coolpix P7800.

That said, the Canon PowerShot G16 (around £530) remains the chief competitor, with a similar 12.1-million-pixel CMOS sensor and slightly brighter 28-140mm f/1.8-2.8 lens. The P7800 has the advantage of a longer focal length and EVF, but the G16 has built-in Wi-Fi, 9.3fps shooting, faster processing and an ISO range of ISO 80-12,800.
