Impress with every shot

Endless creativity and superb image quality

The COOLPIX P7700 satisfies even the most passionate shooters. At its heart is a 1/1.7" 12.2-megapixel CMOS sensor—larger than the sensor in most compact cameras—that delivers exceptional image quality and detail. Use that power to bring every shot to life in vivid clarity. A 7.1x Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens takes you from wide-angle (28mm) to telephoto (200mm) in an instant. Create an expansive landscape one shot, a stunning close-up the next. But as powerful as the COOLPIX P7700 is, you don't need to be a pro to excel with it. Whether you prefer letting Auto Mode do the work for you, using Scene Modes to match your shooting situation or taking complete control of your images with full manual control, you'll be proud of every photo and video you create.

Excel in low-light situations

Bright f/2.0 lens and highly sensitive CMOS sensor

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.

Create with remarkable speed

Fast operation and continuous shooting

Life moves fast, but the COOLPIX P7700 keeps up. In an instant, it powers up, zooms in, autofocuses and captures stunning shot after shot. Hold down the shutter button and fire a blazing-fast 8 fps (up to 6 shots) for some of the most impressive action-freezing sequences you've ever seen. Plus, every photo and video will be sharp and steady, even if your hands are not—Nikon's VR image stabilization ensures a little camera shake won't ruin the shot.

Find exciting new perspectives

Moveable 921,000-dot Vari-angle display

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.

Explore new possibilities

Full HD (1080p) video with stereo sound

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.

big value in small package I was looking for a compact camera to compliment my DSLR's and did not really want to go the 4/5 mirror less route. I got a refurbished item and am quite pleased with it. It has many of the same features as my D7000. I was surprised and very happy that it has a command flash function and works with all my Nikon flashes. It works well with my after market remote and intervalometer. The only thing that disappoints me is that it has no bulb function for star trails. All in all a great value for an advance amateur or used as a travel or hiking camera. September 27, 2014
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

Does Nikon make any fixed lens/internally focusing cameras any more? We have CoolPix 995's and 4500's that have adapters to mount to microscopes and trinoculars, but they are dying. True Macro functionality would be a plus, too.

Answer: 
Nikon has discontinued the adapters and relay lenses used to connect Coolpix cameras to microscopes.

Our advance Digital SLR cameras with the Exposure Delay feature are recommended for use with microscopes. More information is available on our medical imaging website in the link below.

I used the P7700 at a party, with camera set to scene /party/indoor. The results were disappointing whenever a window with light entering was in the picture. Very blown out spots where the windows are, and they ruined the pictures.

How can I compensate for this? I am unhappy with the picture results.

Answer: 
The manual focus is possible with the COOLPIX P7700 and the COOLPIX P7800. When shooting in COOLPIX P7700 or COOLPIX P7800, the manual focus option is availible when shooting with P,S,A,M, the custom user's settings and sports mode. When pressing the multi-selector with the macro icon, the LCD screen will display a series of options which will include one as MF (Manual Focus). Once selected the camera can manually focus with the dial in the back of the camera where it can be rotated to focus the image.

For details on how to manually focus see page 66 of the Reference Manual for the COOLPIX P7800.: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

Then on page page two of the reference section of the COOLPIX P7700's user's manual.: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...
