At Adorama, we want you to be ready to shoot as soon as you get your new camera.That's why we've put together this kit. It includes basic accessories you probably can't shoot without - essentials such as a memory card, and a case. We also thought about; your wallet so we offer our kits at a special price that's less than what you'd pay if you had to come back later and buy these accessories separately. For this reason we suggest you opt for the kit - and you're ready to start enjoying the camera!
The P7100 was purchased after several epiphanies: when travelling I never have room for my DLSR any more, or even a mirror-less system for that matter; 99% of my images are never printed on paper; and as I now need reading glasses viewfinders are of lesser value. The P7100 has become my main camera replacement, taking the place of both my compact and my DSLR for almost everything. Excellent IQ but the outstanding feature is the ergonometrics; I love features like having separate controls for Aperture and Shutter and having things like Flash Compensation at hand without going to the menu. These controls are main selling feature of the camera for me. The tilt out screen is the main feature I like; I generally shoot from the waist.
horrible camera, focusing is horrible, shutter button just as bad, very slow. viewfinder useless, cannot change metering mode. close-up photography is a joke. where can i return this garbage camera, don't even want my money back!!
This is a great camera. I have a nikon d7000 which is nikons best dx camera. I use this camera when i need a light camera. The camera is great in low light. I use a sb-400 flash with this camera a great combo. I would like to have 1080p but video is good.
I hike a lot and bought this camera to take instead of my D300. I like that it is light and the zoom it nice. Picture quality was better than good. I have owned it for 3 months. I have taken approximately 900 photos. The problem is, the lens cover started to not open all the way. I had a similar problem with the P7000 which I replaced with this camera. I had to send that into Nikon twice to repair (under warranty). I contacted Nikon today to have this repaired and they gave me the run around. Obviously, there is a designed flaw. It is a little disappointing that the reliability of the camera is a concern. Imagine taking your camera on any trip or event and then have it not work, very frustrating. The bigger issue was the Service department's lack of helpfulness. I own all types of Nikon cameras and lenses. After this experience with Nikon, I may have to become a Canon owner.
Very fine camera. It needs a fully articulated monitor and a longer zoom range and you'd really have something. Can you hear me, Nikon?
Major improvement over P7000. Seems faster and I appreciate the pull-out LCD to help take photos from different angles. When shooting in manual mode it's a big help to have the front dial for quickly, easily changing Aperture.
I bought my P7100 hoping that the operation and photo quality would be good enough so I could leave my much larger and heavier Nikon cameras and Len's at home once in a while. I like to go into the city of Portland, OR. and just shoot architecture and other subjects I happen onto without having to haul all my camera gear with me every time. I have used all the functions and it amazes me what it can do. I can't believe how well it does in close-up mode. Even the HDR function surprised me with how well it did. I have printed some 13x19 photos from the P7100 and they turned as well as shots from the D200. Ive' shot professonaly in the past and I know quality. The P7100 is quality shooter !
Great little camera! I shoot RAW most of the time and use it as backup to my bigger DSLR...and the pics are almost as good! Can shoot brackets, which I use often. It is small enough to carry around and have it handy whenever needed. The quality of photos is awsome!! And as usual, the user interface and getting around the menus is simple.
The camera works fine. But the strap is cheap, rough and cuts into the neck. Really annoying. Certainly a better quality strap could have been supplied. That's why I'm rating it 4 stars instead of 5. Otherwise, the camera does just about everything a mid-advanced Nikon SLR does at less than half the weight and without fiddling with lens and exposure rates, etc.
I'm pretty pleased with this camera with the exception of the speed to record to the card [and the viewfinder]. And I have a ultra fast SanDisk. It can do bracketed shots for HDR.
