There's a fairly wide range of digital filters which you can apply to images during capture on the Nikon P7700. Although not quite as pleasing as those from other manufacturers, some of them are customisable, giving you room to experiment.

The P7700 copes well when using the Matrix metering setting, producing images that are, on the whole, well exposed with a good range of highlights and shadows.

Colours from the Nikon P7700 are represented very well, with a pleasing amount of punch, without being overly vibrant.

Thanks to the f/2.0 aperture, the Nikon P7700 is capable of producing pleasing shallow depth of field effects, enabling you to get really creative with images.

Taken at f/8.0, this enables us to examine the edge-to-edge sharpness of the onboard lens. The Nikon P7700 has coped well, producing a clear image up to the corners. There is some evidence of image smoothing when zooming in to 100%, but this is to be expected from a camera of this kind.

In-camera editing tools are available, such as the ability to add filter effects post-capture. This is an example of an added vignette.
