Nikon Coolpix 7900 Review

Review Date: June 6, 2005

Category: Point-and-Shoot

Nikon Coolpix 7900 (black) & 5900 (Silver)

Photoxels Editor's Choice 2005 Award
Nikon Coolpix 7900 (black) & 5900 (Silver) 

Executive Summary

This Nikon Coolpix 7900 Review is based on a production model. All sample images are unretouched, except where specified.

Oars: 1/750 sec., F5.9 and ISO 50
12.7mm, Programmed Auto, Multi-Pattern, 1/750 sec., F5.9 and ISO 50
with Fill-in Flash

The Nikon Coolpix 7900 is very easy to use and effortlessly captures well-exposed images with Point-and-Shoot simplicty. With 7.1MP resolution, an ED lens, and fast operation, the Nikon 7900 delivers very good image quality in a compact, attractive and solidly built body.

The Nikon 7900's Auto Mode is more like Programmed Auto, allowing you to set ISO and dial in exposure compensation. It also allows the more advanced amateur photographer to set manual White Balance (WB), move the AF area to one of 99 positions, select image sharpening, image saturation, and even bracket the WB. For those desiring P&S simplicity, the Nikon 7900 has lots of useful Scene Modes to automate the most common picture-taking situations.

The Nikon 7900 is light and pocketable. Nikon is among the few companies that believe in providing a handgrip for comfortable handling. The Nikon 7900 uses a rechargeable Li-Ion battery and the Secure Digital (SD) memory card.

The Nikon Coolpix 7900 makes a great family point-and-shoot digital camera. I believe it will also appeal to the advanced amateur photographer desiring a take-anywhere, intuitive and fuss-free digital camera with enough degree of control over settings.
