The Nikon COOLPIX P7800 Digital Camera is an advanced compact point-and-shoot featuring a 12.2 megapixel 1/1.7" backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and EXPEED C2 image processor to produce high resolution still imagery and full HD 1080p video recording at either 25 or 30 fps. The backside-illuminated sensor design enables impressive low-light performance, with a maximum native sensitivity of ISO 1600, for enhanced low-light shooting with reduced noise. The image processor contributes to producing a maximum full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 8 fps and also supports RAW shooting in the NRW format for greater post-production control over imagery.
The built-in 7.1x optical Zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-200mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. An f/2-4 maximum aperture benefits working in dim conditions and for greater control over selective focus. Also benefitting control over focus, and how movement is depicted, a built-in 3-stop neutral density filter can be utilized to provide enhanced control over exposure settings. Lens-shift type VR image stabilization is incorporated into the camera, too, to help minimize the appearance of camera shake in order to produce sharper imagery when working with greater zoom magnifications and in difficult lighting conditions.
