Nikon Coolpix P7700 Digital Camera Review$499.95
The biggest of the current crop of advanced compacts, the P7700 is also the most comfortable, thanks to its chunky grip and excellent ergonomic design. It's also a true photographer's camera, from its button and dial-encrusted external design to its deep internal feature set. The build is sturdy as you could hope for, and the fully articulating LCD is a great help when composing shots in tight spaces. Nikon's menus aren't exactly cutting-edge, but here they mostly function as a backup for the plentiful physical controls.
