Nikon 26427B overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Nikon 26427B reviews

    COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Camera & Great Service From B&H! My Nikon Coolpix P7800 camera arrived in perfect shape and delivery was outstanding. I'm just getting use to using all the features that this camera has to offer. I'm perfectly happy with the photos I have taken thus far. I'm a beginner so there is a learning curve to overcome but I plan on buying the David Busch's book on the P7700 as it is almost identical to the P7800 and to use it as a manual and reference. As always B&H provided excellent advice and service and I'm most appreciative because I feel that I have the right camera for me without all the other added expenses of lenses and accessories. Happy Holidays!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptionally well balanced package I wanted a camera having DSLR sophistication and customization, a long zoom, a fast lens, very good image quality, and a size that could fit in a cargo or jacket pocket. The P7800 is a home run on all these scores. On top of that, the hand feel is rock solid, the control ergonomics are excellent, and the combination of swiveling LCD and EVF make for a viewing package that is possibly the best and most versatile in the P&S world. I use this for indoor family shots, around town and travel photography, hiking, canoeing (stored a small Pelican box), and for shooting photos and videos of indoor basketball games. It fits snugly in a Lowepro Newport 30 case, which can be carried on a belt.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good camera for travel 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exlpensive but worth it Bought this to replace a lost P5000 which was half the weight and size; but also half the zoom range and lens speed. I am very impressed with the image quality of the lens, and it's zoom range. The electronic viewfinder is light years better than the old optical system and covers 100% of the image taken, not 70%. The articulating 3 viewing screen is a plus, and very sharp. Exposures are right on, and flash shots are surprisingly well exposed. With my SB800 Nikon flash it works as well as my Nikon D80. But this camera which fits in a belly pack is much easier to carry around with me for just in case photo situations. And you could shoot a wedding with this camera and the external flash. Nikon got it right with the P7800. Bob WIlson, Eugene OR.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great creative control when you want it 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Low Noise Compact Camera Researched and bought this camera to use when I don't want to carry and use my Leica MP 240. I was looking for a small camera with a larger sensor to limit noise and as long a zoom as I could get with that larger sensor. It zooms to a 200MM equivalent. A longer zoom would be nice, but it's the longest I could find with the 1/1.7 sensor. Most other brands only zoom to a 135MM equivalent with this sensor. It has very little noise through ISO 1600 and is capable of manual settings. Image quality is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pocket camera As a former photojournalist who used Leicas and Nikons for my work as a staffer on a newspaper and the Associated Press, this Nikon P7800 beats anything today which I can carry in my pants pocket to have ready any time something inspirational comes my way to photograph.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best coolpix nightime carry I bought my son the P7000 and thought it was really good. I had to use his one night and was really pleased with the results. I was going to buy the P7700 but they removed the view finder and that was a deal killer as far as I was concerned. But then Nikon got smart or plenty of nasty emails because they came out with the P7800 and a very nice electric view finder...really brioght much better then the P7000. I really wanted a light carry around camera for the night time and parties, I was getting tired of bringing my big cameras and lens after carrying them around all day. I am really pleased with this camera it does all that I want it to do plus it's small and light, couldn't ask for more. Nikon deserves a pat on the back for this one. They reacted very positively to the complaints about no view finder and didn't waste time getting it corrected.
