Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera DxOMark test results

Nikon-Coolpix-P7700-DxOMark-score (2)

DxOMark published their test results for the Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera ($446). Their conclusion:

Nikon divides its cameras into a number of different categories: DSLR, Nikon 1 (their compact system cameras) and Coolpix, its compact range. Coolpix is further divided: All Weather, Life, Style and Performance. The Coolpix P7700 is at the top of the Performance division, which is in turn the top of the Coolpix Division. That is to say that this is, for Nikon, the best compact they make. This is a camera that has been designed around a wish-list of all the things that a photographer or a serious amateur would want on an everyday camera and Nikon have delivered something really good.

    Those numbers are great for entertainment purposes only.

      and we read this statement everytime Canon fails to deliver highest score

      • Bratislav ILIC

        The strange thing is Canon always delivers lousy DxOmark scores, so either Canon sucks or DxOmark sucks.
        Seeing images Canon is capable of I should say DxO is the one that sucks …

          Oh, but how your tune would change if Canon’s DxO scores went up tomorrow! Silly fanboys…

    I don’t mess with Coolpix stuff too much, but it is good to see that Nikon is producing a few with great IQ. I know the Coolpixes subsidize our FX dSLRs and so I wish Nikon is very very successful with the Coolpix line. Because it will mean we will get better dSLRs to play with.

  • These results certainly don’t represent the camera grades overall. But they aren’t meaningless either. Tough to argue against Dynamic Range and Color Depth… Yes, the scores are a bit misleading but the data available on site does allow a user to make an informed decision. Few buyers will consult this data (or even the DXO Score for that matter) but the few that do, I think it is a valuable tool.

    Even though P7700 does have a better feature set (and higher DxO scores) than the G15, I would still choose the latter due to its better build quality (also MIJ). The former feels a bit weak and MIC build quality is a concern. In fact when trying a demo unit at a retail store recently, its rear scroll wheel operation feels quite loose and has started to develop some problems, possibly due to repeated tryouts from other customers. That at least doesn’t happen on a G15 demo unit which is just next to the P7700.

    It’s quite ironic that even a Nikonian like myself would have to prefer a Canon compact P&S than one from Nikon.

      It’s rare to see good Nikon P&S. Canon dominates this market for a reason.

        Just bought a new P7100 at half the price of a G15. I’m stoked it takes great pictures and feels solid. Of course 41 Dxo points vs 53 Dxo points means my camera is 22.65% “less good” then the new P7700, but I think I can live with that.

    Didn’t need DxO to tell me how good my P7700 is. While others are complaining and spitting out data specs, I’m busy shooting and enjoying.

    • Amen! The more I use it, the more it satisfies. Great job this time Nikon!

  • very happy with my P7700 as a companion camera to my DSLR. I use it in situations where I would never take my DSLR since it is so easy to carry. happy with the quality.
