This portable genius comes packed with features, including a stunningly bright f/2.0-4.0 NIKKOR 7.1x optical zoom 28-200mm lens, a large 1/1.7-inch, back-illuminated 12-MP CMOS sensor, second generation lens shift vibration reduction, Full HD movie capabilities and RAW file format.
Meanwhile the high resolution 921 k-dot VGA 7.5 cm (3.0-in.) vari-angle LCD monitor makes sure you’ll create your own unique perspective on whatever you want to capture, in both stills and video.
In custom movie mode you can record in auto or manual focus and you can set shutter speed, aperture, white balance and ISO sensitivities as well as Picture Controls. The optical zoom is available when filming and the camera has an external microphone input.
Whatever light conditions you’re shooting in, the advanced Nikon lens technology in our new COOLPIX P7700 ensures outstanding precision, sharp resolution and high contrast.
With a broad 28-200mm focal range and fast f/2.0-4.0 aperture, the bright NIKKOR lens is a truly beautiful piece of glass. Two ED glass elements minimize chromatic aberration, a Neutral Density filter enables greater exposure control and the seven blade rounded iris aperture allows beautifully natural background blur (bokeh).
The COOLPIX P7700 also features quick response for streamlined workflow and stress-free shooting, allowing you to switch quickly between functions, and enjoy a near-instant start-up, impressive AF speed and short shutter release time-lag.
You’ll also have the option of flexible high-speed continuous shooting: allowing you to choose from three different continuous mode rates of 8 fps (for up to approx. 6 frames), 4 fps (for up to approx. 6 frames) and 1 fps (for up to approx. 30 frames).
When you want to control the quality of light, you can turn to the camera’s built-in pop up flash with commander function and make use of the Nikon Creative Lighting System from the range of compatible Speedlight flash units.
To get the most out of your shooting with the COOLPIX P7700, there are a selection of Nikon accessories available including Speedlight flash units, the ML-L3 remote control for remote shutter release, 40.5 mm filters, the MC-DC2 Remote Cord and the GP-1 GPS unit.
With this camera you’ll always be ready to capture the best of every moment in your own unique style. Check out some of the incredible images taken with the COOLPIX P7700 over at our Flickr album below:
