The P7100 is an amazing piece of technology that will leave you dazzled entirely. It has entirely different settings that will keep you busy and occupied in making good stuff. The shutter can be held down and the shots can be rattled for up to a time of 30 seconds. But while actual experiment it can take up to one minute to clear the buffer and transfer the pictures on to the Class 6 memory card. In this process some other functions stay inactive. This can prove to be a little disappointing for the user as there will be a wait time to have the process complete.
The ISO sensitivity if very high will allow you to get some shots clicked in the dim light. This is a matter of fact that if the ISO level is 1600 then it will be of some help in the dim areas.

The camera supports the 24p frame rate and if this would support the 30p HD recording then there would not be any other consideration for the camera.
