Excel in low-light situations

Great low-light performance starts with the lens, and the COOLPIX P7700 has one of the best lenses we've ever put in a COOLPIX camera. With a maximum aperture that's wider than most compact cameras (f/2.0), the 7.1x Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens gathers maximum light so you can shoot with faster shutter speeds. Combine that with a highly sensitive CMOS image sensor and Nikon's renowned ISO performance, and you'll capture the shots you've been missing—low-light indoor shots, evening group shots around a fire, nighttime cityscapes, fast-moving subjects and much more.

Explore new possibilities

Apply your creativity to videography. With the touch of a button, go from shooting stills to recording Full HD (1080p) videos that can easily be shared on your computer, social networking sites or an HDTV. The COOLPIX P7700 lets you use the optical zoom while recording, so you can frame exactly the shot you want. It also lets you maintain creative control; adjust the aperture and exposure settings, add creative filters, special effects and more. The built-in stereo microphone captures clear, natural audio (it even includes wind noise reduction), but for maximum sound fidelity, add the optional ME-1 stereo microphone.

Find exciting new perspectives

When you can swivel your camera's LCD display to just about any position, you're free to explore exciting new perspectives all around you. Hold the COOLPIX P7700 at ground level for a surprising new view of a common scene. In tight, cramped spaces, raise the camera overhead and get the shot or video you need. Every shot you frame, review or share is rendered in 921,000 dots of brilliant detail. When transporting the camera, protect the LCD by flipping it to the closed position.

Comfortable, smart design

The COOLPIX P7700 is designed to be used—as often as possible. Its compact, ergonomic body lets you create comfortably. All the camera's settings are accessible through easy-to-navigate menus, and key features are at your fingertips. You can even program your favorite settings for quick recall.

Expand your capabilities and creativity

The COOLPIX P7700 includes a full-size accessory shoe that's compatible with Nikon's most popular D-SLR accessories: Nikon's renowned Speedlights, GP-1 GPS module, ME-1 stereo microphone, and more. Build a creative system around the COOLPIX P7700.

Best Point and Shoot I have ever seen. This is a great camera for the Pro or serious armature. Perfect for those quick unexpected photo opps. Image quality is very similar to D300s. Lens is very sharp, excellent color and contrast. Easy to go from point and shoot to partial or full manual. Well built. It is just a bit large and heavy for shirt pocket. Just what I have been looking for, a relatively small simple high quality camera. July 21, 2013
Excellent camera for this price, but even better if improve something I bought this product after looking through many compacts and DSLRs. I'm a student and do not have much money. The camera is very useful for those who do not have much money or wants a compact camera as a back-up for their DSLRs. The P7700 shoots amazing photos and the videos are very good. The HS120fps video is a very good function, filming other's movement in HS is always fun. The lens of F2.0 at wide and F4.0 @200mm is just awesome. The 8fps High-speed Continuous is even faster than some DSLRs. On the other hand, it may be better to improve something on this camera: the RAW writing speed, the sound recording bitrate(128kbps is too low for a good external microphone), the intervals of interval shooting(should have smaller intervals), the auto-focusing during video recording. In general, this is a very good camera at this price. Strongly recommended. May 25, 2013
Top Tier Nikon Quality After reading many positive professional and consumer reviews of the P7700 I purchased one to complement my D5100. Having owned a number of premium compacts from other manufacturers I was looking for quality build, quick responsiveness and high image quality. I have found an unparalleled level in all of these, in addition to battery and flash compatibility with the D5100 and a very familiar menu system. Six ways are also provided to control camera functions through programmable buttons and dials. Functionality in the field is very high. I can easily give this camera five stars out of five and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quality compact camera experience. April 17, 2013
Improved on the already great P7100, with one exception... This camera has improved on the P7100, with one exception. For the way I use a camera, the swing-out LCD is far less preferable than the tilt-out of the P7100. I almost always shoot from the waist, and the swing-out makes for a larger footprint and a bit more awkward of a hold. Also, if using a small flash bracket it the tilt-out is far better. Thus, I strongly considered competing cameras that had LCD on a tilt mechanism, but the controls on the Nikons are so superior to anything I have used before… and that won out. I also considered adding a second P7100 (I needed a second camera to keep handy at work) but decided that the F2.0 was too useful to miss, and I will admit the swing-out LCD is slightly more rugged for travel. The manual lens cap is an improvement over the P7100 in my opinion; less handy, but far sturdier. In all, the engineers and Nikon did a good thing here. March 16, 2013
Great as a total package and the package is a brick! Considering the size of the sensor, I was pleasantly surprised at the resolution and low light capability of the P7700. For 4x6 prints or newspaper or website use the ISO 3200 images were more than adequate. Some complain about the lack of an optical viewfinder,but I have little trouble being descrete while shooting the P7700. It's simple. Just hold the camera close to your face or torso. You can still see the LCD to compose and shoot. You do not have to hold a camera at arms length to use. The combination of zoom range and lens speed is superlative as well. 200mm equivalent at f/4.0 is outstanding. The flash commander mode to control external flash is feature unique among cameras in this catagory. I use it all the time and it works well. No every one would aggree, but I much perfer the threaded lens front to an automatic lens door. A lens door is subject to damage that may make the camera inoperable, where the threaded lens front will accept a 49mm UV filter that, if damaged can be replaced for just a few dollars. I will say the focus is not quite as fast or dependable as I'm used to, but is adequate in most situations. My only other complaint is the fact that the camera does not have a sleep mode. If left on, instead of going to sleep as all my SLR's do, it just turns off. This requires the start button to be pushed and does take a few seconds. If it went to sleep, it would awakend quickly by simply touching the shutter release button. Battery life is not great but adequate. January 22, 2013

Answer: 
You can download the Manual Viewer App from the App Store, and download the P7700 manual to keep with you at all times. This App is very usefull and contains many Nikon Products manuals. Another way is to download the PDF manual file from the Nikon website, and keep it in iBooks.

To transfer photos to a Mac using the USB cable, *MUST* I install ViewNX2?

Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful1
I would like to have the option of using the USB cable to transfer photos from the P7700 to my computer. But I would rather not install ViewNX2 because it's a bit of a hard disk hog and my Macbook Air has a relatively small SSD. I use other software for post processing and photo library management, so the only thing I'd use ViewNX2 for is transferring photos.

Is there a way to transfer photos via the USB cable that does not require installing ViewNX2? I tried attaching the camera to the computer with the cable hoping the camera would show up as an external mass storage device, but it did not. (This works with other cameras I've used before.)

Thanks for any suggestions.

Joe, you are correct, and I have been using an SD card reader to transfer my pictures.

But my question was: I would like to have the option of also using the USB cable for transferring pictures. Is it possible to use the cable without installing the ViewNX2 software.

If anyone knows the answer to this question, I'd be grateful.

Thanks.

Assuming you downloaded the P7700 firmware from the link below:
https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...
....and you've extracted and dragged the 'firmware' folder to the root of your memory card, and inserted the card into your P7700, and went to firmware option in the camera setup menu, but you weren't prompted to install the new firmware, we suggest you fully recharge the EN-EL14 battery in the camera and try again. If possible reset the camera via the setup menu and try a diffent memory card from the link below.

Answer: 
The NRW (raw) files and jpg files have the same file name when you shoot raw+jpg. You cannot view raw files on the camera when you shoot raw+jpeg. They must be transferred to a computer running Nikon View NX2 or Capture.
You must have the correct version of View NX2, it can be downloaded here, free.
