The P7800 is the latest addition to Nikon’s Coolpix lineup. Equipped with both automatic and advanced features, the P7800 presents a high-powered and intuitive option for those who want superior image quality, performance and creative control.
Packed with features including a large 12.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, a fast maximum aperture f/2.0 lens and new electronic viewfinder, the P7800 captures images and Full-HD (1080p) video with precision, even in difficult low-light shooting scenarios, says the company.
The P7800 sports a 1/1.7-inch 12.2-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and a 7.1x zoom (28-200 mm equivalent). Low-light performance is bolstered by a fast f/2.0-4.0 glass lens. Additionally, built-in lens-shift Vibration Reduction (VR) helps create consistently steady and clear shots when shooting handheld, even while moving.
The P7800 also features extremely fast continuous shooting at 8 frames-per-second (fps) for up to six shots.
The camera captures crisp Full-HD (1080p) videos with stereo sound. While recording, the camera allows optical zoom and presents several in-camera special effects as well as manual controls.
The P7800 is equipped with full manual controls (P,S,A,M) and the ability to capture RAW-format files, enabling users to capture and edit uncompressed images.
Styled in a classic design with external analog controls and mode dials for convenient access, like other Coolpix cameras it is compatible with many Nikon accessories, including Speedlights and external GPS units.
A new high-resolution eye-level electronic viewfinder (EVF) 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.
When using the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter, users can easily shoot and share via Wi-Fi to compatible smartphones or tablets. When paired 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.
The Nikon Coolpix P7800 is scheduled to be available this month at a manufacturers’ suggested retail price (MSRP) of $549.95. It is available in black.
