Nikon Coolpix P7700


The Nikon Coolpix P7700 ($499.95 direct) is the follow-up to last year's P7100. It's a streamlined version of that camera's design—it omits the optical viewfinder, so it's not as tall, and integrates the front control wheel into the grip. The lens...

Excellent control layout. 7.1x zoom lens. Fast aperture lens. Very good high ISO performance. Hot shoe

Lens is a tad soft at f/2. Slow shot-to-shot time. No optical viewfinder or EVF option

The Nikon Coolpix P7700 has the longest zoom lens of any point-and-shoot camera in its class, but the lens should be stopped down to increase sharpness.

Nikon Coolpix P7700


As with Canon's G series of cameras, I'm really struggling to identify the particular needs that models like the Nikon Coolpix P7700 serve. I can only arrive at them by process of elimination: you want better photo quality than a $250 point-and-shoot...

A comfortable shooting design and nice photos in bright light number among the strengths of the Nikon Coolpix P7700 .

The P7700's performance is sluggish, and despite being the largest camera in its class it no longer has an optical viewfinder.

It's a solid enthusiast "compact" that will please a lot of shooters, but the Nikon Coolpix P7700 doesn't quite deliver at midrange ISO sensitivities and its image-processing overhead might annoy impatient photographers.

Nikon Coolpix P7700 Review


The Nikon Coolpix P7700 occupies the top spot in the Coolpix line both in terms of quality and price. While most Coolpix cameras are relatively simple point and shoots, made for quick snapshots, the Coolpix P7700 has much more to offer. It has a larger...

Excellent build quality ; Numerous controls ; Good in low light ; Excellent movie quality

Problem with on/off button ; Slow to shut down ; Delay in begining recording of movies ; Occasional overexposure outdoors

Camera Review: Nikon Coolpix P7700


Nikon takes a step forward with its latest flagship compact camera, but is this Coolpix still playing catch up?

Simpler, more original camera design; faster to use overall; nice, new 7x zoom lens with maximum f/2 aperture at the wide end; finally offers full 1080p HD video shooting; gorgeous, high-resolution, side-swiveling, 3-inch LCD screen

Still has some performance issues particularly when shooting RAW images; mediocre focus performance in bad lighting; no optical viewfinder; average low-light performance for a camera in this class

No, the Nikon P7700 is not going to knock your socks off when stacked up against something like the Canon G1 X and its large, nearly DSLR-sized sensor but that camera is $300 more expensive and considerably bulkier than this new flagship Coolpix model....

Coolpix P7700


($499) is Nikon's flagship compact camera, and the replacement to last year's P7100. In a way, Nikon has done the same thing with the P7700 that Canon did with their PowerShot G15: improved the lens, bumped up the resolution (for both stills and...

If you don't mind the loss of the optical viewfinder, then the Coolpix P7700 is a very nice upgrade over the P7100 that came before it. We'll see if performance -- something that has plagued past P6000/7000 series models -- has improved later in the...

Nikon COOLPIX P7700


The Nikon Coolpix P7700 is a high end compact aimed at enthusiast photographers. Launched in August 2012 it replaces the P7100, maintaining much of the older model's styling and extensive controls, but introducing a new 12 Megapixel CMOS sensor and...

Bright f2 - f4 28-200mm zoom ; 1080p30 video, plus slow and fast modes ; Wide range of physical controls ; High degree of customisation ; Versatile auto bracketing ; Excellent image quality

No viewfinder ; Poor continuous shooting performance ; Slow buffer write times ; Poor menu design ; No built-in Wifi or GPS

As the market for advanced cameras fragments and compact cameras with slightly larger sensors and fixed zooms become just one choice among many for enthusiasts and improvers, it's increasingly important for manufacturers to understand what their...

Nikon Coolpix P7700


As a complete package in the advanced compact class, the P7700 is tough to beat

Best-in-class ergonomics, handling, and build quality; Incredibly deep feature list for a compact camera; Brilliant color accuracy and very good overall image quality

Poor automatic white balance performance

What makes a great advanced compact camera? Image quality is probably the first thing that springs to mind: What good is a camera that takes bad photos? But it’s not the only concern. Handling and user interface is another major element, as the Sony...

Nikon Coolpix P7700 Review


There is certainly room for a easily pocketable, high-specced, magnesium alloy bodied compact digicam as represented by the Coolpix P7700, which succeeds the P7100 model.

The lens is an f2.0 Nikkor, with a 35 SLR equivalent of 28-200mm.

Consumer review by:

"Nikon are finally matching competition with this camera"


Nikon have been trying to master their top of the range 'P' series camera to compete with Canon's G-Series cameras for a while now and they were getting there with the last effort (the P7100 which I own).

+ It looks great, it is comfortable to use

- There's no viewfinder
