There have been a few people, who frequent this forum, report on this camera and I have not heard anything bad.
The sample photos that I have seen are excellent.
The price of this camera is not likely to drop anytime soon.
If you don't really need 7 megapixels, you can save about $90 by buying the 5900. Which is identical to the 7900 except that the 5900 is a 5 megapixel camera.
I'm a novice photographer looking for a camera with good image quality and good value. I recently stumbled across the Coolpix 7900 review here on CNET and have been interested in purchasing the camera ever since. Does anyone who owns the camera have any helpful input that they can share? Also would it be more prudent for me to wait until the summer is over to purchase the camera in the hopes of a price drop or will prices remain pretty stable? Thanks in advance.
