Nikon Coolpix P3 Reviews

DCRP has reviewed the Nikon Coolpix P3 digital camera where they write: “The P3 is a compact (but not tiny) metal camera with a 3.5X optical zoom lens and a 2.5″ LCD display. The camera is well put together for the most part, though the plastic door over the memory card and battery compartment is especially flimsy. While having a little extra zoom is nice, the big story here is Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) system, which reduces the effects of camera shake, allowing you to use slower shutter speeds than you could otherwise. As you saw earlier in the review, the VR system is effective for both still and movie recording. The camera’s LCD is big, bright, and sharp — and visible in low light conditions. Nikon unfortunately left out an optical viewfinder on the P3.”

CNET has reviewed the Nikon Coolpix P3 and write: “Wi-Fi is the word for the 8-megapixel Nikon Coolpix P3. Like its predecessors, the Coolpix P1 and the P2, as well as its compact contemporary, the Coolpix S6, this compact point-and-shoot incorporates an internal transmitter for uploading pictures to a nearby computer or printer. While it sounds exciting, Nikon’s wireless implementation falls a little short of true usefulness. Indeed, it’s the P3’s excellent image quality that impresses us far more than its wireless abilities. With optical vibration reduction (VR), the P3 is a great snap shooter that should please discriminating users.”

Digital Camera Review has published a review for the Nikon Coolpix P3 Digital Camera and write: “The Nikon Coolpix P3 is a high-quality 8 megapixel camera targeted at the photographer who wants a bit more control over their shots. Its sister, the Coolpix P4, is identical except that it doesn’t have WiFi capability. Nikon has managed to provide easy access to camera settings by using the mode dial to change ISO, white balance, etc. Keeping them on the mode dial prevents the camera from getting too “buttony” and losing the ease of use for people who want to have simple operation. My favourite features are the 2.5 inch LCD and the Vibration Reduction. The LCD sports a whopping 150K pixels to provide an accurate representation of the shot. The Vibration Reduction allows for more shots without blur in the available light (without having to resort to using the flash).”
