#21. "RE: Nikon COOLPIX A...Is it worth owning?" In response to In response to 20 Tue 16-Jul-13 06:16 AM by richardd300
Hi Darrell. I have a V1 and it's a fine camera, however for sheer portability I am looking for something with an articulated screen and the Coolpix A does does not have that feature. I want the variable position screen as I want to use it as a candid street camera where eye contact is kept to a minimum as well as a highly portable backup to my D7100 and D800.
I want to buy Nikon and if the "A" gave me the facility to do this all well and good, but I think the P7700 is a more flexible camera overall. I appreciate that I am not comparing the cameras on a level playing field, but I am very surprised that Nikon left this facility out as I think they missed a trick.
