Nikon P7800 unveiled: new EVF-equipped enthusiast compact

Nikon P7800

Nikon has announced the Coolpix P7800, a follow-up to the P7700 enthusiast compact camera.

The P7800 is almost a carbon copy of its forebear, although it now incorporates an electronic viewfinder with a 921k-dot resolution.

This has necessitated a handful of design changes, such as the loss of the Quick Control dial on the top plate, although Nikon has still managed to find space for the P7700's hotshoe.

Otherwise, there's little to split to the two cameras. The Nikon P7800 maintains the same 12.2MP backlit CMOS sensor and 28-200mm f/2-4 lens as the P7700, as well as that camera's 3in articulated LCD screen with a 921k-dot resolution.

It also records full HD video at 1080p and has an integrated ND filter which reduces exposure by 3 EV stops.

Nikon P7800 specifications:

  • 12.2MP backlit CMOS sensor, 1/1.7in
  • 28-200mm f/2-4
  • 3in articulated LCD, 921k dots
  • EVF with 100% coverage, 921k dots
  • Expeed C2 processor
  • Built-in ND filter
  • 8fps (up to six shots)
