“The Nikon Coolpix P2 has enough resolution to make good-looking 11×14 inch prints, and crisp 8x10s. At high ISO settings, the noise creeps up a bit, and the images soften somewhat, but 8x10s from ISO 400 shots looked better than average, and would probably be acceptable to most users for display on a wall or table. Printed at 5×7, they’re slightly rough for use in an album, but it’s likely that the average consumer wouldn’t notice anything amiss with them.

Overall, a good choice for the point & shoot user looking for an easy to use, compact digital camera with a surprising range of capabilities. At the same time though, it’s also an appealing option for the more advanced shooter looking for a “pocket” camera. The WiFi feature adds to the price and is still not as brainless/painless as it might be, but is reasonably easy to set up, has a high “cool factor,” and the Shoot & Transfer mode could be a load of fun at parties. “
