    Im looking for a compact and this seems to suit my needs at a price to suit...
    It looks as though its been superseded by the P7700 which doesnt bother me as I have my main photography needs covered with my slr and lenses...which are Canon!!
    Has anyone got one or any different ideas for a compact with a budget of 300 max

    I`m sure it should be fine, guess you going to want this for the odd macro so the tilting screen is going to be handy.

    If you don`t need the tilting screen the x10 is pretty good, this too allows macro at the wide end, and like with most of these close focusing camera`s the lens has to be close, the x10 has a larger 2/3" sensor as well.

    The Fuji X-S1 is probably the best all round compact out of the lot, but its dearer, the body is more the size of a small dslr but it has a decent lens that goes up to 600mm, its weather sealed and allows macro at the long end of the zoom.

    There is an opportunity to win a Nikon P7100 in the Christmas prize draw. The entry becomes available on Tuesday.

    This does not answer your question but you could get lucky. Wink

    My wife uses a P7100. For our 2013 Calendar we used six of her photographs taken with the P7100 and six of mine taken with a D800. In the printed calendar it is completely impossible to tell which were taken with which camera from the image quality.

    Thanks Paul, Eddie and LF

    I hadnt considered the X10 at all and its certainly now got me thinking about it...
    Its a decent size and whatever i buy will pretty much live in the glove box of the car but have to be small enough to carry in the hand

    I`ve found it very capable and just love mine.

    A few experienced a problem with orbs but that has now been sorted, there`s a good sized user group for the x10 on here, none of us experienced that problem.

    At the price point (for a recently discontinued model) the P7100 takes some beating for the capability to do a decent A3 print, zoom range etc.
    There is always the potential to buy something better, but not much else to choose within the 300 budget

    Many Thanks to All for your help and adviseSmileSmile..Very Much AppreciatedSmile

    I plumped for the P7100 purely for its longer focal length over the X10....I feed the birdies in the car park at work and have a friendly Crow and Robin (amongst others) so I figured the extra reach may be usefull for this.

    Wex were doing a good deal with a Nikon Case and Spare Nikon Battery thrown in for 269 delivered so Im in budget....Plus Mrs Lawbert can use it occasionally!!

    Ive just got to get a chisel to it to expand the Card slot to fit Compact Flash!!Tongue

    Thanks again to all for your helpGrin
