In this review, we will be comparing X30 and P7100, two Small Sensor Compact cameras from Fujifilm and Nikon. Fujifilm X30 was introduced to market in August 2014 and Nikon P7100 was launched in February 2012. There is 18 months difference between X30 and P7100 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger X30, especially in sensor tech.
Fujifilm X30 has a 12.0MP 2/3 sensor whereas Nikon P7100 has a 10.0MP 1/1.7" sensor. We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Small Sensor Compact cameras. Out of 262 cameras in this class, Fujifilm X30 is ranked #2
with an overall score of 66 and Nikon P7100 is ranked #7
with an overall score of 61.
