Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera Features

Elite Performance and Optics

The COOLPIX P7800 sports a large 1/1.7-inch 12.2-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and a versatile 7.1x zoom range (28-200mm equivalent). This combination ensures the capture of stunning images and Full HD video in a variety of difficult shooting environments. Whether shooting portraits, landscapes or documenting the family vacation, the P7800 is the ideal compact camera for almost any occasion.

Low-light performance is bolstered by a blazing fast f/2.0-4.0 glass lens that lets more light in, allowing the user to shoot with faster shutter speeds, and providing sharper results, even without the flash. Additionally, lens-shift Vibration Reduction (VR) in the lens helps create consistently steady and clear shots when shooting handheld, even while moving. For moments when speed is of the essence, the COOLPIX P7800 also features extremely fast continuous shooting, at 8 frames-per-second (fps) for up to six shots, allowing the user to be ready for every memorable, fleeting moment.

The camera is also capable of pristine Full HD 1080p video recording with stereo sound. While recording, the P7800 allows effortless optical zoom and presents several in-camera special effects as well as manual controls affording incredible video potential.

Controlled Precision for Every User

The Nikon COOLPIX P7800 presents a portable, practical and powerful compact camera option for the casual or advanced shooter looking to capture photos with precision and confidence. For capturing a fast moving soccer match or documenting the family vacation, a variety of useful scene and shooting modes are at the user’s disposal to help custom tailor the camera’s settings for a number of different shooting situations. An intuitive menu and external control system make it easy to navigate and control with ease.

For more advanced users who seek the ultimate in creative freedom, the COOLPIX P7800 offers complete creative controls that afford any photographer the ability to customize every shot. The P7800 is equipped with full manual controls (P,S,A,M) and the ability to capture RAW files, enabling the user to capture and edit uncompressed images. Styled in a classic design with a litany of external analog controls and mode dials for convenient access, this potent compact camera provides the uncompromising control that enthusiasts and professionals covet, clearing the way for the capture of beautiful images and Full HD video. Much like other Advanced Performance COOLPIX offerings, the P7800 is also compatible with many Nikon accessories, including Speedlights and external GPS units.

Capture and Share with Ease

Framing unique and accurate shots is streamlined with the addition of a new high-resolution eye-level electronic viewfinder (EVF) that makes shooting, even in bright sunlight, enjoyable and easy. More creative composition perspectives are possible with the use of a versatile high-resolution 3-inch Vari-Angle LCD screen that can help frame anything from dynamic overhead shots to low-point-of-view macro photos as well as great candid photos of kids and pets.

When using the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter*, users can easily shoot and share via Wi-Fi® to compatible smartphones or tablets. Pairing with the free downloadable Wireless Mobile Utility application*, the WU-1a enables the seamless transfer of images and videos for easy sharing and viewing with friends and family.
