Lens-shift Vibration Reduction is highly effective in countering camera shake when exploiting the 7.1x zoom NIKKOR lens.
Once again Nikon has designed a compact camera that exceeds all expectations. Handling like a D-SLR, the powerful COOLPIX P7800 delivers superior quality images with as much creative control as you want. With an outstanding 7.1x zoom NIKKOR lens, this class-leading camera blends design with technology so you can capture bright, high resolution photos and video that won’t fail to impress.
Unleash your imagination with the COOLPIX P7800 and cast a new light on quality.
Packed into a compact body, the high performing COOLPIX P7800 boasts exceptional NIKKOR optics which maintain image brightness throughout the 28-200mm zoom range. With its fast f/2.0-4.0 aperture, images remain sharp even at the widest zoom angle. Including two ED glass elements to minimise chromatic aberration, plus a seven-blade iris diaphragm, super crisp images against stunning natural backgrounds are created. When shooting at the longest focal lengths you’ll be amazed at the effectiveness of the lens-shift Vibration Reduction (VR), meaning you never have to worry about a little camera shake ruining a great shot.
A choice of electronic viewfinder or vari-angle monitor provides exceptional compositional flexibility.
The 12.2 megapixel 1/1.7” backlit CMOS sensor combined with the EXPEED C2 image processor yields superb colour rendition and tonal range, even in low light.
Performing remarkably well in low-light situations, the large 12.2 megapixel 1/1.7” back-illuminated CMOS sensor combined with the EXPEED C2 image processing system offers both superior noise reduction and high-speed performance. Paired with the versatile 80-6400 ISO setting range, your photos and video will capture the finer details whatever the light conditions. When you want even more control over the light, particularly at night, you can use the Commander Mode of the camera’s built-in pop-up flash to control external Speedlight flash units compatible with the Nikon Creative Lighting System.
Nikon understands that discovering new perspectives can be the key to the perfect shot. To cope with varying shooting conditions the COOLPIX P7800 has two viewing systems. For D-SLR style shooting, use the bright 921k-dot built-in electronic viewfinder and expertly frame the shot you want with high-definition visibility. For ease of use and to help you achieve the sharpest possible image, the viewfinder incorporates a -3 to +1 dioptre adjustment. Alternatively, shots can be framed using the ultra-bright 7.5cm vari-angle LCD screen which can be swivelled to almost any position to provide new views of the world with fantastic results. When switching to video, the vari-angle monitor really comes into its own allowing users to document a scene from the tightest of angles, or hold the camera at arm’s length and capture a video diary or self-portrait.
Lights, Camera, Action
The COOLPIX P7800 will satisfy any budding director looking for something portable yet versatile. At the touch of a button you can shoot Full HD (1080p) video with built-in stereo sound and take full advantage of the optical zoom to create the perfect scene. Creative control is maintained with options to adjust aperture, shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, filters and effects, so you can shoot movies with the exact visual effect you want. The built-in microphone captures clear high-quality audio, but you can further improve the sound recording using the external microphone input, and integrated HDMI connectivity means your clear, crisp recording can be enjoyed directly on HD televisions.
The rounded seven-blade diaphragm creates a soft rendering effect, producing high-quality bokeh.
Control in your Hands
Whether you prefer to take full advantage of the auto-mode function, use the many effects and filters to suit your shooting conditions, or take greater creative control with one of the PSAM modes, you will enjoy producing fantastic photographs and movies with simplistic ease. Front and rear command dials offer easy access to key camera settings and provide smooth manual control. Three user modes allow you to recall your preferred PSAM camera settings instantly, and two customisable function buttons let you bypass the menu and set shortcuts to your favourite camera settings. With RAW format shooting, the camera allows images to be shot and saved in high-quality NRW format even when using in-camera features such as Continuous Shooting and Picture Control. If you like your photographs to take on a different style you can use one of the many special effects or filters such as Cross Process for creative colour rendering.
To take full advantage of the camera’s potential the COOLPIX P7800 is compatible with a wide range of accessories including the WU-1a wireless adapter to share images in an instant or remotely control the camera with a smartphone. Conventional SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards are all compatible so you can choose the best memory card for your needs.
Wherever your adventures take you, achieve total control of your photography with the COOLPIX P7800 from Nikon and admire the outstanding results.
