Nikon have announced the latest update to their top of the range Coolpix “P” range of high end compacts, the Nikon P7700. Notable changes / upgrades includes a revised x7 stabilised high quality zoom lens that’s “faster / brighter” ” (F2 – 4 28mm -200mm) than the previous lens and an articulated 3″ 921K dot rear screen. The P7700 still houses a 12Mp 1/1.7″ CMOS sensor but now boasts vastly superior processing speed. A while back I tested a Nikon P7000 and found it to be a highly capable camera. No doubt the new P7700 will build on core “P” series strengths and continue to be a viable alternative to Canon’s “G” series of high end compacts.
