Program, Aperture, Shutter, and Manual Exposure Modes allow you to have the ultimate control over your pictures. The D-SLR-type mode dial on the top of the camera provides quick access for greater personal and creative control.
Now you can adjust the camera's settings for any type of lighting conditions and get as creative as you want. Auto adjusts up to ISO and lets you keep shooting, even in lower light. Store up to 2GB for free. Upload pictures directly to my Picturetown, then conduct searches based on the location of where your pictures were taken.
You can also view them all at once. A great way to have instant organization of your photos! You may never see red-eyes again! D-Lighting will rescue those photos that are too dark for printing by enhancing the underexposed areas of the picture while not touching the properly exposed areas. Still, the further from the lens, the better. On top, the Nikon P's Command Dial has gotten smaller, unfortunately. I loved the Command Dial on the P It seemed lifted from a dSLR.
But this one seems stolen from a kid's toy.
It works, it just isn't pleasant to use. The Power button has been moved to the outside. No need to stand and applaud. Only Panasonic seems to get this right. It should be a switch, easy to find and use. The Shutter button and Zoom ring combination -- my preferred arrangement by a mile -- seem a little cheaper versions of the P's like the Command Dial, but they work as you'd expect.
The Nikon P's Zoom ring's tab is a bit larger and easier to find. The Nikon P's Mode Dial has moved a bit to the left to accommodate the hot shoe, which has moved from the corner on the P where any flash would unbalance the camera to the center.
I suspect Nikon wasn't worried about balance, though. They were probably trying to clear as much space on top for the GPS radio to read the skies.
The GPS radio is tucked into the corner of the left side all by itself. The Nikon P has more buttons, but the layout is good.
On the back panel, things are different. There are still five buttons along the left of the LCD, which is now 2. But they do different things. There are also three more buttons than on the back of the P, suggesting five wasn't enough.
I like the trend toward more physical controls, but it didn't play out well for me on the Nikon P I was confused about which button did what in a way I never was with the P It's the same number of pixels , , so yes, the per-inch resolution is technically a bit lower.
Reading the menus was not as clean as I remember. The 'e' was nearly a splotch rather than a letter. Maybe the D has spoiled me, but I remember the P's menus rather fondly. That thumb pad is still there, fortunately, and the Nikon P's Multi Selector, too, with the same functions.
Not quite as nice as the P's controls. Note the hot shoe has moved to the center.
The Canon G10 was the loser here, by quite a lot, simply for its size. In contrast, I just put an old wrist strap on the Nikon P and slipped it into an L. Bean jacket balanced on the other side by my wallet filled with official documents. OK, back to the buttons. All eight of them. Nothing really illogical about that.
So where are Display and Trash? And Display is next to the optical viewfinder as if it were an EVF. Popup Flash. Extravagant, perhaps. And what's the last button do? It pops up the flash, of course. You can't have a popup flash without a button to pop it up there's apparently some sort of patent involved [Kodak, perhaps? There is a funny little Pacman face next to the flash icon on the button, perhaps to distinguish the button's opening function from the same flash icon on the Multi Selector, which cycles through the Flash modes.
If it had been me staying late to work on the icons, I'd just have turned the flash icon upside down, so it was pointing up, on the popup button. No Pacman needed. Hold the button in to activate the function and twirl the Command Dial to change the setting. Manual Focus. Set it in Focus mode first then use the button and Command Dial to manually focus. The Nikon P's Manual focus button is a bit of an odd duck.
Press it, and you are reminded, if you are silly enough to forget, that you must set the Focus mode on the Multi Selector to Manual Focus before the button does anything but remind you to do that. It should be smart enough to switch over itself, but no. Once you do switch to Manual Focus mode, holding in the MF button displays an enlarged center section of your image and twisting the Command Dial changes focus. There's a depth scale on the right side of the screen so you know which direction you're going.
Not quite as intuitive as a dSLR lens, of course, but better than nothing. The Nikon P's My button brings up a list of functions you can customize, a tremendous feature that should be stolen by every other camera manufacturer until it's an industry standard. No need to wade through the Nikon P's menu system to find some obscure but dear command. Just stick it on your MyMenu screen. But Nikon's menu system is not really obscure. It's the best in the business for my money.
Canon has fortunately evolved a bit but most camera manufacturers give about as much thought to their menu systems as cellphone designers give to theirs. They just don't worry about how usable it is. Nikon does. And with two user settings on the Nikon P's Mode dial, Nikon makes room for you not only to customize a menu of your own, but to save two configurations for recall.
That's very much appreciated out here in the real world. So, in short, not much damage has been done to the interface I liked so much on the Nikon P's predecessors despite adding some very useful functions.
Scene Modes. Easy to find. And there are those two User configurations we mentioned, too U1 and U2. Don't worry, there's also a green Auto mode to restrict the Nikon P's operation for people who don't want to know how or why.
There's also the familiar Movie mode. The Nikon P's menu system isn't very clear about your options so here they are: TV movie with a star the default is high quality measuring x at 30 frames per second. TV movie is x at 15 fps. Small size is x at 15 fps. Time-lapse movie with a star is interval shooting where you set the time between still shots taken at x that are assembled into a 30 fps movie when the sequence is done.
Sepia movie takes an antiqued brown-filtered movie x at 15 fps. Standard Definition Movie. With digital zoom and sound. Click to download AVI file. You can see two things about Movie mode on the Nikon P all the x size movies are shot at only 15 fps and there's no HD at p option.
And it also includes a Picture Bank option more about that later, too. Neither of these were on the P Raw Capture. This is the first Nikon P-series with Raw capture.
Much has been made of that and even more of its small one-shot buffer.
