In this review, we will be comparing P7700 and XZ-2 iHS, two Small Sensor Compact cameras from Nikon and Olympus. Nikon P7700 was introduced to market in May 2013 and Olympus XZ-2 iHS was launched in December 2012. There is 19 months difference between P7700 and XZ-2 iHS so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger P7700, especially in sensor tech.
Both Nikon P7700 and Olympus XZ-2 iHS cameras have 12.0MP 1/1.7" sensors. 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 Olympus XZ-2 iHS is ranked #4
with an overall score of 63.
