In this review, we will be comparing P7700 and X30, two Small Sensor Compact cameras from Nikon and Fujifilm. Nikon P7700 was introduced to market in May 2013 and Fujifilm X30 was launched in August 2014. There is 15 months difference between P7700 and X30 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.
Both cameras have 12.0MP sensors but Nikon P7700's sensor is 1/1.7" sized whereas Fujifilm X30 has a 2/3 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, Nikon P7700 is ranked #9
with an overall score of 60 and Fujifilm X30 is ranked #2
with an overall score of 66.
