About Nikon P7800

This Nikon P7800 Bundle comes with $29.95 worth of free accessories including a Green Extreme EN-EL14a and Shipping is free! .

With the Nikon P7800, Nikon has added an essential ingredient to this small camera designed for serious photographers. Nikon has added an electronic eye-level viewfinder. Unlike the dinky little squintfinders that covered not quite 70% of the image and were on some of the P7800's predecessors and which can still be found on one or two competitors, the P7800's 921k high-resolution finder covers 100% of the scene so you can compose precisely. Unlike the optical finder, it does this while still allowing room for a 3-inch, fully articulated LCD monitor.

In addition to the new viewfinder, the Nikon Coolpix P7700 features a magnesium-alloy body and is fronted by a glass 7.1x zoom lens that covers 28-200mm (35mm equivalent), the same focal range as its predecessor, but with a faster f/2.0-4 wide aperture range. Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction is said to minimize camera shake. In Macro Close-Up mode, the lens focuses to within an inch.

Full Manual Control
The Nikon Coolpix P7800 offers full manual exposure control as well as shutter- and aperture priority and program modes. The camera also has 19 Scene Modes and a Scene Auto mode that automatically selects the most appropriate mode based on the shooting situation. In-camera special effects include Nostalgic Sepia, Vivid, and Painting. A noise reduction filter is available for low-light/higher ISO shooting. Another low-light option is consecutive shot combining, which combines a sequence of ima ge s to reduce noise, or HDR to increase dynamic range. The ISO range is 80-1600, boostable to 6400. There are three custom modes so you can quickly switch to your most frequently-used settings.

The Nikon P7800 can capture full 1080p HD video, and video exposure can be controlled using auto, manual, aperture-priority or custom movie mode. Autofocus is active while shooting videos, and the P7700 offers both a built-in stereo microphone and an external microphone jack and an HDMI mini connector and HDMI-CEC support.

The Nikon Coolpix P7800 is a true system compact, compatible with the Nikon Creative Lighting System, in addition to a built-in pop-up flash. The P7800 supports wireless lighting by controlling Nikon Speedlights (the Nikon SB-910 and Nikon SB-700) wirelessly via a master unit and remote unit group. The hot shoe can also accommodate the Nikon GP-1 GPS unit or Nikon ME-1 external stereo mic. A new Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1a, allows users to share images online via their iOS or Android device using a free Nikon app.

Frequent Lens Cover Problem


from Doral, Florida

The Nikon Coolpix 7000 series have an unresolved problem on the lens cover system. Make a search on the www to realise that. The repair cost is almost the same of a new camera. Choose a better camera.


Great Camera


from Panora IA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Bought this for use when DSLR is too big to carry. Great travel camera. Great improvement on my original P7100. Love the lens cap rather than original metal leaf cap.


This item is not leather.


from Cape Coral

I just received this item after I ordered it back in December and was backordered until the end of March. To my chagrin, it is not leather as advertised. The item is ballistic nylon. I have been a longtime customer of Adorama without any problem of this kind and I will give them the benefit of the doubt as I believe that this was an unwillful mistake in their description. I'm keeping the bag as it is not worth my time to ask for a refund or exchange. But Adorama... look into this and change the description to reflect the proper composition of the bag material.


Good travel camera


from Waco, TX

I bought this camera to take on trips. I wanted a high-quality camera that went beyond a simple point-and-shoot, but I didn't want to lug around a DSLR with multiple lenses. The features that drew me to the 7800 were: size and weight; electronic viewfinder, 7x optical zoom; f/2.0 lens. I had been using a Canon G9 but wanted a similar camera with a faster lens that still could zoom out to ~200 mm (35 mm equiv). I'm still learning to shoot with the 7800 but it is relatively intuitive. This camera reminds me of my old Leica.

A feature-packed wonder


from Sierra Nevada, Ca.  -  Photo Enthusiast

Frankly, I had to "warm up" to this camera upon first usage. There is so much to like and so many features, but with a few, "huh?, why wasn't this included?" things missing. However, what's "missing" is more than compensated for, when you look at the sum of the parts. As an "enthusiast" who has won a few blue ribbons, best of shows, etc., I take my photography seriously, but still want it to be fun and non-burdemsome. As I get 'older', I am finding my beloved,tried-and-true Nikon D300 being used less due to size and convenience. This the reason for opting for the P7800 - and now I can have the features, control and photo quality I need, in a 'grab-and-go' package. Looking forward to the future of photography with this thing.

Much appreciated improvements


from Central CA  -  Pro Photographer

The P7800 is a welcome upgrade from my original P7000. The f2.0 lens at 28mm, and the swivel monitor is much appreciated. Waited for this version so I could enjoy using the view finder, though it's now electronic, it's needed in direct sun situations where the monitor is hard to see. In general, the access to menu items has been somewhat better integrated. Very clean files and the ability to shoot raw is makes this a camera I carry everywhere.

Great IQ, Controls


from Philadelphia, PA  -  Pro Photographer

I bought this camera to have something with good IQ, instead of having a do-it-all lens for my D7100 and D600. These options always left me cold, as the 28-200 FX and 18-250DX lenses are mediocre at best, but you still need the bigger body. The P7800 has surprising good IQ - way better than the reviews, and the long zoom range makes it, for me, a better choice than the Canon, Sony, and Fuji offerings. Nikon forgot to mention that the fill flash works to 1/4000!, which is one of the big selling points of the Fuji X100S. Great controls, esp. manual exp. flash exp. comp, and exp. comp. Love this camera!

Coolpix 7800


from Massachusetts  -  Pro Photographer

I am a retired Pro Photographer and just got back from a two week vacation. I just don't want to carry the Nikon D3 and three lens and a flash with me for casual photos and some scenics. I picked the 7800 because it is one of the few point and shoot cameras with an optical viewfinder. In the short time I have had it, I find it easy to use and produces image files good enough to make large prints. However the learning curve may take a while due to the many menu options. You can use it as a simple point and shoot or if you want to delve into the menus you can override just about every option. Now I am waiting for Nikon to provide a fix to allow Photoshop and other editing software to read the new raw file format that comes with the camera.

Beware if you shoot RAW


from Milwaukee, WI  -  Photo Enthusiast

I had read that this series was slow to write RAW files to the SD card. I could not have believed how SLOW. I have a fast card and it still made me pause between easy shots. If you are shooting jpeg, there will be no worries. I returned the camera immediately.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

David L  Does the front of the P7800's lens take a 40.5mm filter or do you have to purchase the HN CP17 lens hood & use 58mm filters? Thank You.
DAN H  David, The lens does take a 40.5mm filter. I bought a Fotasy brand and it fits perfectly. Get one right away to protect your lens. In fact, you may not really need a lens cap with the filter on. Ues it as a dual purpose item.
