Nikon Coolpix 775


Nikon gave us our first glimpse of the 775 behind closed doors at PMA 2001, it was announced a little later at the same time as the Coolpix 995. The ultra-compact 775 features a 3x optical zoom lens and a 2.1 megapixel CCD, its small proportions,...

Good metering, good tonal balance, relatively good colour ; Noise free, 'smooth and clean' images ; Auto white balance works well, manual preset option ; Auto Focus is fast, good continuous AF ; Good macro (at wide angle - barrel distortion is visible)...

Lens quality / barrel distortion at wide angle ; Overall image softness ; Didn't produce the resolution we'd expect of a second generation two megapixel digital camera ; Some chromatic aberrations ; Resets certain settings on power-up (flash, white...

The Coolpix 775 marks Nikon's first foray into the ultra-compact market. It has all the elements, it's small, very light, has good ergonomics (it's amazing what difference a decent hand grip can make) and a 3x optical zoom lens. Features are simple but...

The ultra-compact $449 Coolpix 775 packs a 3x 38-115mm (35mm equivalent) Zoom-Nikkor lens and 2.14-megapixel CCD into the lightest (6.5 ounces), pocket-sized point-and-shoot digital camera. The Coolpix 775 is perfect for capturing digital photos anywhere,

With a suggested retail price of just $449 the Coolpix 775 is going to find its way into the hands of many novice and expert users. The only thing you really need to buy is a larger CF card, everything else including the rechargeable battery, charger and

Of all the little (lower resolution) point-and-shoots we've played with, we've got to say the CoolPix 775 was our favorite.

Nikon Coolpix 775: Small Camera, Big Pix


With its 6.5-ounce weight and Nikon image-quality and credentials, the Coolpix 775 digital camera does a good job of delivering big-shot image quality with a pocket-sized design.

Otherwise, shooting with the 775 is easy and comfortable. The camera's zoom control is responsive and allows a fine degree of control. We especially like the Quick Playback button, which lets you quickly review your images without having to switch the...

What's in the Box

Very good bundle ; Support for conversion lenses ; Very small and light ; One touch image transfer

Proprietary battery ; Lackluster photo quality ; Feels "cheap ; Not competitive with Sony and Olympus models in this price range

I've been a fan of Nikon's Coolpix line of cameras for a long time. I even bought a Coolpix 950 back in the early days of this site. My advice here is to skip over the Coolpix 775, however. It's not that it's a bad camera -- not at all -- it's just...

HardwareCentral - Nikon Coolpix 775 Review.


A panel on the camera's bottom opens to insert the EN-EL1 battery (one-time-use 2CR5 batteries also work), which recharges in about two hours in the nicely compact, packable (the prongs fold into its AC plug) recharger. Considering the Nikon's small...

Other than exposure compensation and a bunch of "scene modes", the NikonCoolpix 775 provides no creative controls. The scene modes include "portrait",which tries to keep a wide aperture, "party/interior", which slows the shutterspeed enough to capture...
