The Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera is an advanced compact point-and-shoot featuring a 12.2 megapixel 1/1.7" backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and EXPEED C2 image processor to produce high resolution still imagery and full HD 1080p video recording at either 25 or 30 fps. The backside-illuminated sensor design enables impressive low-light performance, with a maximum native sensitivity of ISO 1600, for enhanced low-light shooting with reduced noise. The image processor contributes to producing a maximum full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 8 fps and also supports RAW shooting in the NRW format for greater post-production control over imagery.

The built-in 7.1x optical Zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-200mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. An f/2-4 maximum aperture benefits working in dim conditions and for greater control over selective focus. Also benefitting control over focus, and how movement is depicted, a built-in 3-stop neutral density filter can be utilized to provide enhanced control over exposure settings. Lens-shift type VR image stabilization is incorporated into the camera, too, to help minimize the appearance of camera shake in order to produce sharper imagery when working with greater zoom magnifications and in difficult lighting conditions.

For live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation, both a rear LCD monitor and electronic viewfinder are available for bright, clear viewing. The EVF features a 921k-dot resolution and is especially beneficial for accurate monitoring in bright conditions while the 3.0" 921k-dot vari-angle LCD features a tilting design to better support working from both high and low angles. A hot shoe and dedicated accessory port are both integrated into the P7800's design to facilitate the use of a wide range of accessories, including external Speedlights, the GP-1A GPS Unit, or the WU-1a Wireless Adapter. Additionally, the magnesium alloy covered body employs a highly intuitive, DSLR-like interface design for greater handling capabilities in regard to efficient camera control.

12.2MP BSI CMOS Sensor and EXPEED C2 Image Processor
A 12.2 megapixel back side illuminated 1/1.7" CMOS sensor and EXPEED C2 image processor work together to deliver high-resolution still imagery and full HD 1080p video with notable low-light quality and a native sensitivity range of ISO 80-1600, which is further expandable to ISO 6400. The processor also affords a fast full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 8 fps for up to six consecutive frames.
Zoom NIKKOR ED Glass Lens
The built-in 7.1x optical Zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-200mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives to suit working in a wide variety of conditions. Two extra-low dispersion elements are integrated into the optical design to reduce chromatic aberrations and improve clarity, sharpness, and contrast and the f/2-4 maximum aperture, and 7-blade rounded diaphragm, benefits working in low-light conditions as well as providing greater control over the plane of focus at both ends of the zoom range. Lens-shift type VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization works to minimize the appearance of camera shake, which further enhances image sharpness when working in dim conditions or with greater zoom magnifications. Additionally, an internal 0.9 (3 stop) neutral density filter allows for greater control over movement and focus within the image.
Camera Design
Within the compact form-factor of the P7800 is both a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and large LCD monitor. The 921k-dot EVF provides a bright, clear means, with 100% frame coverage, for eye-level finding that is ideally suited to use in difficult lighting conditions. Equally adept for critical viewing, the 3.0" 921k-dot vari-angle LCD monitor can swivel up to 180° to the side and tilt 270° forward/backward to benefit working from both high and low angles. It also utilizes an RGBW design to improve overall brightness to better support its use in daylight conditions.

The intuitive design also integrates a range of physical controls to mimic the handling capabilities of a DSLR. A manual exposure compensation dial, quick menu button, and variety of function buttons enable more efficient control over the most oft-used camera settings. A hot shoe is also incorporated into the design for utilizing external flashes or, alternatively, a built-in pop-up flash is available and can be used as a commander within the Nikon Creative Lighting System for control over external, off-camera Speedlights. An accessory terminal can be used to connect a variety of different accessories, including the WU-1a Wireless Adapter as well as the GP-1A GPS Unit or ML-L3 Remote Control. A magnesium alloy body cover enhances the durability of the camera and the lens features a threaded 40.5mm filter ring diameter to accept the use of additional screw-in type filters.
Full HD Movie Recording
Full HD 1080p video recording is supported in both 25 and 30 fps frame rates with both manual and aperture-priority exposure control capabilities. The built-in ND filter greatly benefits exposure control when recording movies and the dedicated movie button allows for instant switching between still and video modes. A built-in stereo microphone can be used to record sound or, alternatively, an external microphone jack is integrated into the design to support usage of an optional mic for higher quality sound with recordings. Voice memos can be recorded, too, in addition to the sound with movies for dictating notes during shooting. AV stereo, USB, and HDMI ports are all available to support a range of methods for sharing video files.
Other Camera Features
  • Full manual exposure control is possible, in Programmed Auto, Shutter Speed Priority, Aperture Priority, and Manual modes, for refined control over how both stills and movies look.
  • RAW file recording produces uncompressed NRW files that enable greater editing control in regard to exposure and color during post-production.
  • Scene Auto Selector intelligently determines the type of scene you are photographing in and automatically adjusts the exposure settings to help in accurately depicting the situation at hand.
  • In-camera image editing modes are available to help creatively enhance the look of imagery after shooting: Black Border, Copy, Crop, D-Lighting, Filter Effects, NRW (Raw) Processing, Quick retouch, Red eye reduction, Skin softening, Small Picture, Straighten

    I have been a "serious" photographer for over 40 years and have worked with all kind of film and digital gear. My main system is a pro-level APS-C. About a month ago, I replaced my "go anywhere" Canon G12 with the P7800 and have been doing a good amount of "break in" shooting with it (Raw+jpeg, A mode, low ISO, developed in DxO Optics Pro 9 and processed in Photosop CS6). This is not a DSLR and should not be compared with one. It is a larger compact camera that I can still have with me everywhere I go. Considering its class and size, the P7800 is very well built and feels good enough in my average size male hands. It has a set of features for manual and auto shooting that rivals an entry-level DSLR's (just allow me this one comparizon). The unique EVF is necessarily small but a tremendous improvement in comparizon with no EVF or the optical finder of the Canon G series. The fully articulated LCD is bright and sharp, and comes very handy when your eye can't get to the EVF (i.e ground level closeups and over your head shooting). The sharp lens has a record range and is quite bright. With an inexpensive UHS-1 memory card, 12MP Raw+jpeg write speed is a decent 1.5sec/frame. After studying the manual and getting familiar with settings and commands, the P7800 does a very good job with Nature (closeups included), landscape, indoor, family, and even moderate action, night and simple product photography. IQ is such that, with proper shooting and processing, I can easily make fine-art quality prints up to 16x24" with my 17" photo printer. I am very happy with this camera but, as usual, try before you buy.

    I am a pretty serious amateur photographer. Wanted a smaller camera to take with me to shoot both snapshots and more important subjects. Wanted some capability and control that one cannot get with a point and shoot. I am disappointed that the smallest aperture opening is F8. Biggest problem is that I cannot use the RAW feature. Although the RAW feature is available on the camera, Nikon changed the suffix to NRW instead of NEF. This is not recognizable by Photoshop versions clear up to CS5. Adobe Photoshop CS6 and CC for Photographers recognizes NRW, but I do not want to add the expense of new software on top of the cost of the camera. Nikon did not make this very clear about the raw file change in their advertisements.

    Comments about Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera:

    Nikon Coolpix p7800

    The Nikon P7800 is a very handy, small, light camera with unique features. It will not fit in your pocket like a Sony RX100m2 (unless you have cargo pants) but it will give you amazing results. I love the longer reach of the (equivalent) 200mm and the (equiv.) f2.0 28mm wide angle is plenty wide for most uses.

    I was interested in a compact that could generate Raw files. There is a difference between the JPG and RAW output on the P7800, mainly in the dynamic range and sharpness, but it is not as great a difference as you would expect. RAW files from this camera will easily produce excellent prints up to 15 x 20 inches with surprising sharpness, fine detail, and dynamic range. My tests were shot at f3.5 @ 1/125sec. also at f5.6, and I was very pleased with the results. The optical quality of the lens does not disappoint. It is very sharp. And judging from the many downloadable samples available online for the Sony RX100m2 and the Canon Gx7 (both as JPG and RAW samples) the P7800 lens is sharper than those, even with the consideration of their larger sensors.

    The fully articulated tilt/swivel LCD is a priceless feature for low or high-angle shooting and very practical for a camera of this weight and size. All of the dials are nicely positioned and easy to use except for the +/- Exp.Comp click-stop-dial at the right corner of the top. It is very stiff but certainly will not slip by accident.

    One of the most pleasant surprises on the Nikon P7800 is an actual EVF. Having used the Canon G9, Canon G12, and others with a small optical VF or none at all, this electronic viewfinder is a very useful addition. Although the EVF is not ultra high resolution it provides lots of on-screen exposure information such as over/under exposure compensation, aperture, shutter speed, metering type, AE mode, ISO, and even a histogram. Yes, the histogram could be larger but given the constraints of screen size and the amount of information displayed, it is accurate enough and extremely useful, and does give a faithful indication of exposure although a bit low contrast.

    There are two settings for close-ups. At the closest Macro Close-up (wide angle) setting it focuses about 1/2 inch (1 cm) from the front lens element. And there is the 40.5mm filter thread if you want to attach your own.

    The AF spot is reposition-able, there are two programable Fn buttons for many functions, and 3 custom User Settings (U1, U2, U3). Using the Fn buttons in conjunction with some required dials is a bit awkward.

    Pluses
    *grip is very good for a camera of this size and weight
    *Excellent high-res great color and detail LCD
    *sharpness and contrast adjustments in camera for JPGs
    *excellent dynamic range in RAW post-processing
    *three stop ND filter
    *handhold-able speed down to 1/4 sec. no shutter vibration

    Minuses
    -Pressing the Function buttons while turn other dials is awkward.
    -slow if shooting RAW and JPGs (about 2-3 seconds between shots)
    -NO histogram in Playback mode
    -NO wi-fi built-in
    -NO touchscreen

    Comments about Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera:

    We bought the camera mostly for travel and casual use, to replace an older point-and-shoot we were unhappy with. We have an SLR for more serious work, and I think the 7800 will be an improvement over our old travel camera. Outdoor pix are quite good. We chose the 7800 partly because of the large max aperture (F2), but we are a bit disappointed with the camera's performance in lower-light situations; pix seem noisy, especially when zoom is used and max aperture shrinks. But we are still learning to use the many features to best advantage, so we may be able to do better as we learn more. Camera is too large for shirt-pocket use; that was not a surprise, but a trade-off we understood.

      Comments about Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera:

      I will use this camera to carry daily, when I don't want the bulk of my SLR. I love this camera. As an older person, this camera at least patially brings back the "serious" feel of those substantially bodied and glass lens rangefinders of (ahem) earlier days. The electronic viewfinder is bright and usable - I'm not a fan of flip screens for general shooting.I bought it for the manual functions. I will use it for general photography, and a certain amount of my work is close-up and macro photography of very small 3D prints and metal castings. I can get usable images with this camera, although the smallest aperture is f/8 and with no focus ring depth of field is occasionally an issue. Manual focus is achieved with a spot focus function, and when locked down on a tripod that is cumbersome. Typically I'm using f/18 or so with an SLR.I'm very happy with the purchase. B & H's free shipping plus a free memory chip and carrying case made it a real bargain, although the case was not a good fit.

        Good camera for travel

        By Labtrout

        from Connecticut

        Comments about Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera:

        I've had the P7800 for about two weeks now. I am a longstanding Nikon DSLR user but I wanted something smaller and unobtrusive for travel and hiking. After a bit of research and an online conversation with the B&H staff, I chose the P7800. I am surprised and pleased to say this is not simple point-and-shoot camera, but a pretty sophisticated camera that in fact requires some getting used to. The menus offer lots of options and I really like the custom user settings. Making adjustments on the run is not all that intuitive.... at least not yet. On the plus side, the lens seems pretty sharp and color rendition is good. I am pleased with my choice.

          Bought the P7800 for a backup of my D7100, rather than carrying my D80 on a planned long trip. I've been shooting with it for 3 weeks and it is wonderful, more than I expected. Took 5 bracketed HDR pics and worked great, easier than my D80 & D7100. I have found no faults yet and it's easy enough for my wife to use.

          Comments about Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera:

          I'm basically a Canon camera guy. I have a 20D, 5D & 5D MarkII for my professional work and a G12 for those many trips that my wife & I love to take. I've been looking for a good or better substitute for G12 which I didn't find in succeeding models G13-16. But Nikon's P7800 is one amazing, little camera that could do a lot. I bought it for a friend, but after test-driving it myself, I fell in love with it and would buy another to replace my old G12.

            Comments about Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera:

            I purchased the P7800 primarily to do take photos of my handcrafted artisan jewelry for my online selling ventures. I like the lens speed, the zoom range is appropriate to my subjects, and the ability to set and save user functions like aperture, ISO, metering, and white balance. I love that you can attach a shutter release cord and I purchased one with the camera. The articulating monitor screen is the best!!! I can use the camera comfortably on the tripod at different heights and even do self-portraits and be able to view the screen from in front of the camera. Others have stated where the EVF falls short, and it is true, but it is great having the viewfinder for outdoor macro photography. All-in-all it appears to be a camera to grow with and get photos that will sell my crafted items.

            I needed a small camera for travel. I love the 7800! To be fair I shot 5 stops up and down so any delay was on my part for processing.

              Picture quality is excellent, tilt screen lcd is a very welcome feature.
              When shooting movies outdoors the microphones pick up the slightest wind breeze. The camera has many useful features.

              Comments about Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera:

              I started using this camera for travel on trips where my Canon 7D with a telephoto lens was just too big to carry. I was looking for a camera that was small enough to carry on my belt, works well in low light, and takes great pictures under many different situations. This camera does all of this. Additionally, it has a 5X rather than the usual 3X digital zoom lens. This is very useful, and unusual for a fast lens that works well in low light situations.

              Finally, it is easy to use, and I really bought it for my wife to take with her on a wilderness adventure. She is technophobic, and even she loved it. Between the auto mode and the "Scene" mode (automatically programmed for about 10 different difficult situations), it is quite easy to use even for a point and shoot photographer.

              The quality of the pictures are better than any of my previous pocket cameras, but a bit below that of my Canon 7D in terms of the depth.

              Although more pricy than many small cameras, for the quality and versatility, it is a good value.

                Comments about Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera:

                I saw this camera at a Nikon show when it came out. I asked the Nikon rep if people were going to pay that much for a Point and Shoot and he simply handed me the camera for me to judge for myself. It had a good feel and weight but I was not able to explore everything this camera had to offer.

                Later that week I did some online research and watched some unboxing/preview videos and was just blown away with what this camera could do.

                So I took a chance and bought it. I could always return it if I wasn't fully satisfied right?

                I lug 50+ lbs. of gear with me most of the time and for professional shoots I need most of it. But when I'm out and about and NOT on a photo shoot and think, "Gee, did I wish I had this lens, or that zoom." I just reach for the P7800 and can almost always get what I am looking for in a shot. My Pro Gear can now stay safe at home and not with me in a just-in-case photo op and be charged and at the ready for those Pro Gigs.

                Now with that said, This pocket-fitting camea has so much more going for it like the multitude of effects that comes built in. It isn't a photoshop replacement but it does have its own creative niche. (Just watch a video on its features!)

                But, Is it worth that price? YES! If you are looking at an Entry-Level Consumer Grade DSLR and a few lenses just buy this camera instead. You will thank me later!

                I won't leave home without it and neither will you.

                This is the first time I have EVER given a product a 5 Star rating. Worth every STAR!!!!!

                    Comments about Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera:

                    I already own Nikon camera's and lenses. I wanted a point and shoot camera to take on vacation. I picked this one because of the 28-200 focal length range, image stabilization, low-light shooting, accessory shoe, being able to adjust the monitor (low or high positions), and that I already own Nikon cameras.

                    Easy to learn the set up.
                    Super pictures (this was really important)
                    great battery life (get the newer EN-EL14a)
                    fits in my purse
                    Don't have to lug around heavy lenses

                    Two complaints...
                    1)Learning to hold the camera where you are supposed to. My thumb tended to push all the buttons surrounding the actual place to put your thumb. But, easy to overcome!
                    2)Wish it came with the complete instruction booklet already printed. (you have to go online and download)
                    Haven't tried movie mode yet...I just got the camera...but am looking forward to it.

                        Comments about Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera:

                        The Coolpix P7800 is the ideal size for my use when traveling where lugging larger cameras might attract too much attention. Its swiveled screen allows for a multitude of views without revealing your presence. The image results are high quality and most adaptable to my needs.
