When shooting there is auto mode which adjusts the camera settings automatically for the detected scene. In continuous shooting mode you can record at 7 fps for 7 frames or 30 full resolution shots at 1 fps. When you finished shooting you can edit your photos in the retouch menu, adding effects such as selective colour and cross screen.
The P has built-in GPS to geotag your images as well as retrace your route. You can purchase the Nikon WU-1a Wi-Fi dongle to allow you to transfer your images to a mobile device. You can also shoot in slow and fast motion, up to fps. The P looks and feels very similar to a DSLR, with a substantial grip which is rubberised, as is the patch on the back for your right hand thumb. There are two ways to control the zoom, there is the usual zoom rocker on the top, but there is also one on the side of the lens barrel.
The latter can be customised to change the ISO, metering, white balance and much more. The flash is activated by a button also on the top. On the rear of the camera, but towards the top is a display button, movie record and dial for adjusting shutter speeds and aperture. Other buttons include playback, menu, delete and there is also a rotating dial for cycling through the menu options.
This can also be pressed to give access to the flash, self-timer, exposure compensation and focus mode. The screen is impressive, it’s 3. It rotates to make it easy to shoot with the camera in higher or lower positions. The electronic viewfinder is useful for when shooting with the zoom at a long length as it reduces camera shake, but it’s quite small and has a low resolution.
The menu system is easy enough to navigate, it looks very epsaol to the menus used on Nikon’s DSLRs. One frustration that has been improved upon since the P is that when you switch the camera on with the lens cap attached, no error message appears.
You just need to pop it off and start shooting. Battery life is rated at shots according to CIPA test results, this will edpaol OK for a day of nokon, but if you use the GPS quite a lot, you might appreciate espaoo a spare to hand. We took a number of shots to test the camera’s responsiveness, from switch on to first photo, shot manuao shot, focusing speed etc.
We take a number of shots and then use the average to ensure accurate and consistent tests, making it easy to compare with other cameras. Both the continuous H and L modes record at full 18 megapixel resolution, with the 60 fps restricted to 2 megapixels and the fps mode limited to VGA size. Additional sample photos and product shots are available in the Equipment Databasewhere you can add your own review, photos and product ratings.
Portraits have decent skin tones and are free of red-eye when using the flash. Nikon Coolpix P Lens test images Previous Next Lens Performance – Images have a good amount of detail at both ends of the lens, but are a little soft.
Purple fringing and chromatic aberration does become a bit of a problem at the longest end. The lens has a minimum focusing distance of just 1cm which allows for impressive macro shots. This loss in detail becomes a little worse at ISO and again so at ISOwith images becoming a little soft at this setting.
Again, there is a noise increase at ISObut image nlkon is still fairly decent.
Nikon Coolpix P White-balance test images Previous Next White Balance Performance – Under our incandescent lights, the auto white balance AWB produces a decent image with a very slight colour cast, with the incandescent preset performing a little better.
Under the fluorescent lights the AWB does an excellent job, with p250 three fluorescent presets producing images with a colour cast. Video – Below is ezpaol video recorded in full p HD. You’ll also find videos shots at 4x2x and 0. You’ll also need to buy a memory card and a case or bag to keep your camera safe and protected – have a look at our complete guide to camera bags.
The Nikon Coolpix P is a decent update to the Pbut we’re a little surprised to see that the optical zoom hasn’t been extended to 50x to compete with those cameras kanual more manuxl from Canon, Fuji and Sony. The sensor has been increased to 18 megapixels and the screen is bigger at 3. Other than that, not much as changed, you’re still getting a featured packed, DSLR style camera, without the bulk.
If you’re wanting to shoot fast moving objects far into the distance you may struggle as the focus is a little sluggish at the longer lengths.

But other than that, the P will take some excellent pictures that you’ll be extremely proud of. EVF is quite small and has a low resolution Battery life expectancy is a little low Slowish focusing and shutter response Purple fringing and chromatic aberration in images when shooting at long lengths.

Photographs taken using the Nikon Coolpix P Fujifilm XF10 Review 11 Oct Nikon D Review 3 Nov Why no sensor size in mm? Seems to me, if this little camera had a 17mmx13mm sensor or even bigger it would be a giant killer.
So what if the price went up? It’s pretty low now. Yes it’s a nice idea, but a lens capable of mm equivalent focal length like the Pbut with a 17x13mm sensor, would have to have a mm maximum focal length. This would be big and very expensive, with a large amount of precision, specialist glass, making a camera with such a fixed lens an unrealistic proposition.
A 42x zoom factor for such a lens is also unrealistic. The problem with an APS-C sensor would be even greater, requiring a mm maximum focal length lens to give the reach of the P The actual focal length range of the P’s lens is 4. It’s one of the fundamental truths of the mega-zoom market that you can’t have this sort of telephoto reach in an ‘all-in-one’ camera with a large sensor.
We’ve added this to the specifications, thanks.
