Main Rivals

Listed below are some of the rivals of the Nikon Coolpix P7100.

Canon PowerShot G12

Canon PowerShot G12 Review thumbnail

The Canon PowerShot G12 is a serious camera aimed firmly at the well-off amateur or pro looking for a carry-everywhere compact. Building on the success of previous G-series models, for 2010 the G12 principally adds 720p HD video, stereo sound, High Dynamic Range shooting mode, and a DSLR-like front control dial. £539 / €649 / $499.99 is an awful lot of money for a compact with a small image sensor - read our expert Canon PowerShot G12 review to find out if its worth it.

Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR

The Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR is the latest travel-zoom camera, sporting a 15x lens with a versatile focal range of 24-360mm. The 16 megapixel F550EXR features a lightning quick auto-focus system, full 1080p movies, built-in GPS, and 8fps continuous shooting.

Olympus XZ-1

Olympus XZ-1 Review thumbnail

The new Olympus XZ-1 is a serious compact that's aimed at the enthusiast and professional user looking for a small yet capable pocket camera. A relatively large 1/1.63 inch CCD sensor, f/1.8 maximum aperture, 3 inch OLED screen and a full range of manual shooting modes should be enough to get their attention. But can the XZ1 take on the likes of the Panasonic LX5, Samsung EX-1 and Canon PowerShot S95?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 Review thumbnail

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 is the long-awaited successor to the ahead-of-its-time LX3, a compact camera that hit the sweet spot for photographers looking for a pocketable alternative to their DSLR. Fast forward two years to 2010, and it's the turn of the new LX5 to appeal to the more experienced prosumer, with a longer 3.8x lens, improved 10 megapixel sensor, AVCHD movies and a tweaked control system all on offer.

Ricoh GR Digital III

Ricoh GR Digital III Review thumbnail

The GR Digital III is the latest version of Ricoh's pocket camera for prosumer photographers. With a fixed 28mm wide-angle lens, high-sensitivity 10 megapixel sensor, 3 inch LCD screen and optional optical viewfinder, the Ricoh GR Digital III is certainly a serious camera. Mark Goldstein finds out if the GR Digital III can justify its equally serious price-tag of £529 / $699.

Samsung EX1

Samsung EX1 Review thumbnail

The Samsung EX1 (also known as the Samsung TL500) is a new pocket camera for serious photographers, sporting a bright f/1.8, 3x zoom lens, sensible 10 megapixel CCD sensor and a swivelling 3 inch AMOLED screen. RAW shooting, ISO 80-3200, image stabilisation and full manual control complete the EX1's main attractions. Read our Samsung EX1 review to find out if it hits the mark.
