The Nikon Coolpix P7800 is great as a travel camera for users who wish to shoot mostly JPEGs at low sensitivities. It offers a wide zoom range, great build quality, a good maximum aperture and excellent resolution in the lower range of ISO sensitivities....

Although the Nikon P7800 impresses on paper it fails to deliver when put through its paces, with its shooting performance a particular lowlight. When you consider the current price tag of just short of £500, while there are some redeeming features with the P7800 it’s difficult to recommend in the advanced compact market.

Although the Nikon Coolpix P7800 takes excellent-quality pictures, that unfortunately comes at a price. You'll have to put up with the camera's painfully slow performances, a video mode from another age and an EVF that's not particularly useful. With so...

Nikon's Coolpix P7800 is a good all-rounder. The lens can be used for macros and also for zoomed shots up to 200mm, and the end results are very good. Furthermore, it does a good job in auto mode, but it also has extensive manual...

Ignoring the fact that you can't get such a small zoom lens for a mirrorless camera, the Nikon Coolpix P7800 is roughly the same size as a mirrorless camera with a pancake lens, but is also more expensive than a number of mirrorless cameras - each one...

Nikon Coolpix P7800 skuffer ikke på billedkvalitet. Det ligger godt i hånden med sit gummierede greb og har et righoldigt udvalg af funktioner og indstillinger, som gør, at kameraet vokser med opgaven. Men det er ikke et lige så oplagt valg, som...

Om vi skulle få för oss att göra en lista över de fem bästa kompaktkamerorna så skulle Nikon hamna högt upp med sin Coolpix P7700. Efterträdaren P7800 har med andra ord allt som behövs för att Nikon ska stanna kvar i täten, eftersom ytterst lite är...
