  • Excerpt: Hello, this is an "executive summary" of the review I wrote 2 years ago. This P7800 has the typical high ISO shortcomings of a small sensor and has slow writing speed (1.5sec Raw + jpeg with a fast card).

Great for Street Photography

Design Guy, Amazon
18 December 2015
  • Summary: I use this camera in tandem with a D7200 for street photography in China. It's more discrete than a DSLR and I use a small Nikon flash when I hit the streets at night. The auto-focus is good and the lens is fast. I also use this for macro photography when I don't what to drag out the DSLR.

P 7800 My Favorite Nikon

jrd4263 , Nikon
1 December 2015
  • Summary: My first Nikon was the Nikon F, many years ago. I've owned many Nikons over the years, the last being the N1V1 with the 10 - 100 mm lens. Some physical problems mad the use of the manual zoom lenses difficult so I bought the P7800. Amazing camera!

Need Fast Card Otherwise DREADFULLY Slow, Poor ISO performance

Louis A Sousa, Amazon
29 October 2015
  • Summary: This camera ABSOLUTELY needs a fast card. Using a 90 some odd mbs card the camera was dreadfully slow to the point of being unusable. I contemplated selling it right away. I then put in a Scandisk card with a speed of 280 mbs. This made a world of difference.

Awesome: Off camera flash in a small point and shoot

  • Summary: I love this camera. I have been shooting this for over a year. I purchased this for a travel camera, with off camera flash. Now, I carry it more than my D7000. I shoot everything indoor and out.... action, low light, long exposure, portrait, concerts, street.....

  • Excerpt: For my purposes, mostly landscape and travel snapshots, the P7800 strikes the right belance between outstanding picture quality versus size and weight. In my hands, the P7800 feels very comfortable to hold and operate.

Great Travel Companion

  • Summary: This is probably the only camera that provides the option of taking a self photo using the vari-angle LCD monitor and a remote control. You are able to view and compose a photo of yourself anywhere.

Mine locks-up completely. No firmware updates available. Anyone else got this problem?

John Morris, Amazon
11 July 2015
  • Summary: Bought my P7800 in Jax, Fort Collins CO. The pictures are OK and I like the artificial horizon -- makes landscape photography easier. However, mine has an annoying habit of locking-up completely. Only removing the battery fixes it. I have looked for firmware updates from Nikon but there are none.

Almost a Great Camera

Mark Vande Pol, Amazon
5 July 2015
  • Summary: This is almost a great camera. The optics are wonderful. The ISO range is spectacular. It takes great macros. I wish there were more MPs, but I do understand the tradeoffs between noise, speed, and resolution. Theirs was a sensible choice by Nikon.
