lineup that offers Nikon's optical excellence and versatile high-performance
features in a portable, compact body. Equipped with both automatic and
advanced features, the P7800 presents a high-powered and intuitive option for
those who want superior image quality and performance, without sacrificing
creative control. Packed with innovative features, including a large
12.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, a fast maximum aperture f/2.0 lens and new
electronic viewfinder, the P7800 captures images and HD video with elegance
and precision, even in difficult low-light shooting scenarios.

"This addition to the Advanced Performance COOLPIX series affirms Nikon's
commitment to integrating our storied optical legacy into powerful yet compact
cameras," said Bo Kajiwara, Vice President of Marketing, Planning and Customer
Experience, Nikon Inc. "The new COOLPIX P7800 will allow photographers of
every level to explore their photographic potential while capturing top-class
images and Full HD video."

Elite Performance and Optics
The COOLPIX P7800 sports a large 1/1.7-inch 12.2-megapixel
backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and a versatile 7.1x zoom range (28-200mm
equivalent). This combination ensures the capture of stunning images and Full
HD video in a variety of difficult shooting environments. Whether shooting
portraits, landscapes or documenting the family vacation, the P7800 is the
ideal compact camera for almost any occasion.

Low-light performance is bolstered by a blazing fast f/2.0-4.0 glass lens that
lets more light in, allowing the user to shoot with faster shutter speeds, and
providing sharper results, even without the flash. Additionally, lens-shift
Vibration Reduction  (VR) in the lens helps create consistently steady and
clear shots when shooting handheld, even while moving. For moments when speed
is of the essence, the COOLPIX P7800 also features extremely fast continuous
shooting, at 8 frames-per-second (fps) for up to six shots, allowing the user
to be ready for every memorable, fleeting moment.

The camera is also capable of pristine Full HD 1080p video recording with
stereo sound. While recording, the P7800 allows effortless optical zoom and
presents several in-camera special effects as well as manual controls
affording incredible video potential.

Controlled Precision for Every User
The Nikon COOLPIX P7800 presents a portable, practical and powerful compact
camera option for the casual or advanced shooter looking to capture photos
with precision and confidence. For capturing a fast moving soccer match or
documenting the family vacation, a variety of useful scene and shooting modes
are at the user's disposal to help custom tailor the camera's settings for a
number of different shooting situations. An intuitive menu and external
control system make it easy to navigate and control with ease.

For more advanced users who seek the ultimate in creative freedom, the COOLPIX
P7800 offers complete creative controls that afford any photographer the
ability to customize every shot. The P7800 is equipped with full manual
controls (P,S,A,M) and the ability to capture RAW files, enabling the user to
capture and edit uncompressed images. Styled in a classic design with a litany
of external analog controls and mode dials for convenient access, this potent
compact camera provides the uncompromising control that enthusiasts and
professionals covet, clearing the way for the capture of beautiful images and
Full HD video. Much like other Advanced Performance COOLPIX offerings, the
P7800 is also compatible with many Nikon accessories, including Speedlights
and external GPS units.

high-resolution eye-level electronic viewfinder (EVF) that makes shooting,
even in bright sunlight, enjoyable and easy. More creative composition
perspectives are possible with the use of a versatile high-resolution 3-inch
