Seems ideal as the first 'step up',
This review is from: Nikon P100 Digital Camera - Black (10.3MP, 26x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)
This is perhaps my first 'serious' camera and it seems ideal.
Obviously more chunky than a pocket camera, but I am very impressed with the optical and digital zooms. The results look good to me....have uploaded some photos to the page.
Plenty of features and settings and it is easy to switch between them. Can't claim to have used it for 'action shots' (see first review below) however have used the continuous shooting for various wildlife photos and it is great. If you use the 'L' setting you can take 2.8 pictures per second with no apparent delays in writting to the memory card. You have the option of changing continuous shooting from 1 frame every 10 mins up to 120 fps.
Just getting started with the P100 - but first impressions are that it has great picture quality, great zoom, easy to use and there are plenty of options when using.
