Nikon Coolpix P3

Editor's Review

Nikon is all over the wireless bandwagon, and the Nikon P3 is another solid offering in this emerging market. At 8.1 megapixels, the P3 packs a high-quality sensor in a very tight little package, a little more than an inch deep. The P3 also features "vibrational reduction", a system developed for digital SLRs like Nikon's D200 and D70. With the VR system, your shots will be noticeably steady and clearer no matter how difficult the environment may be.

excellent (joji antony — 01/21/2008)

It has been taken about 3 months research to purchase a camera. Finally in Nov 2006 I decided to buy this wonderful camera. I am extreamly happy. I strongly recommend. You won't regret; my dear. Go fo it.

awesome (nietzky — 12/10/2006)

Picture Quality cannot be matched by all digital rivals. I owned Canon PowerShot series, I was with Pentax and Olympus. Better believe it. This camera's pictures are so authentic and crisp you need to first remove ear and nose hair to look like a gentelman. I am happy I don't have to look for cables when you try to quickly transfer photos to PC. The built WI-FI chip offers up to 56Mps transfer. USB cable becomes a thing of the past and you will not come back to cables even if this camera still offers USB connection. Shutter lag is a bit disappointing but when you look at the quality of the pictures - you are ok you waited a bit longer. You see the quality everywhere. Compact and easy to handle as well. Will fit into your front jeans packet with an extra push.

True Quality Pictures.

Nearly as good as an SLR (Sujay Biswas — 09/12/2006)

I Have used several high end film SLRs both the 35mm and medium format cameras. Nikon P3 definitely lives up to the long and fabulous Nikon lineage. Its doing justice to the Nikon brand.

Great Camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Have been a long time SLR user - with 3 high end cameras. This little beast is fantastic. Incredible pictures, vibration stabilization, easily portable and lots of photographic modes for the best lighting. The Nikon software allow you to fix any photo flaws VERY EASILY. Best part of the camera is the wireless capability - easily transferring pictures to my PC and event to my photo printer. Wireless is a must have, especially with the Nikon software.

This is the best of breed small camera - PERIOD
