Nikon COOLPIX P7700

The P7700 is the newest flagship model for the COOLPIX series. It supports full-scale manual photography as well as system expansion, allowing users to brush up on their camera techniques that digital-SLR cameras require. The P7700 is the successor to the P7100, released in September 2011, and offers a number of advances over its predecessor, including faster continuous shooting and even better image quality with shooting at high sensitivities. It is equipped with a large 1/1.7-inch backside illumination CMOS sensor, and a fast NIKKOR lens that supports 7.1x optical zoom. Its built-in lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function increases imaging opportunities by enabling capture of not only beautiful still images, but also crisp and clear full-HD movies in dark or dimly lit surroundings.

The bright and fast NIKKOR lens supports 7.1x optical zoom covering a range of focal lengths from 28 mm to 200 mm (equivalents in 35-mm [135] format) and offering maximum apertures of f/2–4. It also supports macro photography from distances as close as approximately 2 cm, as well as fast telephoto shooting. What's more, it offers excellent rendering for beautiful expression of blur. The combination of this high-performance lens and the 1/1.7-inch backside illumination CMOS sensor with an effective pixel count of 12.2-million pixels enables even better image quality with shooting at high sensitivities, and high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 8 fps*1. The P7700 is also equipped with a movie custom setting mode with which settings such as shutter speed and ISO sensitivity can be specified, making the most of the advantages and capabilities of the fast lens and backside illumination CMOS sensor, for even more ways to express yourself through full-HD movies with superior picture quality. The camera also supports a number of accessories that extend possibilities and increase flexibility with shooting in a variety of situations, including Nikon Speedlights*2, which can be used for multiple flash-unit photography with Advanced Wireless Lighting, the GPS Unit GP-1, which records position information with images as they are captured, and the Remote Cord MC-DC2, which makes releasing the shutter easier when the camera is mounted on a tripod (accessories sold separately).
