Features

The successor to the powerful P7100
The successor to the P7100, the P7700 offers several key advances over its predecessor, including faster continuous shooting and enhanced image quality when shooting at high sensitivities. Highlights include a large 1/1.7-inch Backside illumination CMOS image sensor and a high-speed 7.1x optical zoom NIKKOR lens with an effective 12.2 million pixel count.

Lens shift vibration reduction
The built-in lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) Image stabilisation function increases the range of imaging possibilities with the camera performing equally well when snapping beautiful still images or recording crisp and clear Full (1080p) HD movies in dark or dimly lit surroundings.

7.1x optical zoom NIKKOR Lens
This bright and fast lens covers an extensive range of focal lengths from 28mm to 200mm (equivalents in 35mm format) and offers a maximum aperture of f/2.0 at the wide-angle position and f/4.0 at the telephoto position.

High performance in low-light
Equipped with a 7-blade iris diaphragm, the COOLPIX P7700 ensures enhanced image quality when shooting in dark or dimly lit surroundings and creates rounded blur characteristics for natural looking and beautiful images.

1/1.7 inch backside illumination CMOS image sensor
With an effective 12.2-million pixel count, the high-performance sensor supports technologies that automatically overlay multiple images captured in rapid succession, resulting in less noise in photographs taken at high sensitivities. High-speed continuous shooting is possible at approximately 8 fps for full-resolution 4000×3000 images, for up to six consecutive images.

Record full (1080p) HD movies with stereo sound
An all-new movie custom setting mode means shutter speed, aperture and ISO sensitivity can be tailored to achieve optimal filming results. The camera’s fast NIKKOR lens and Backside illumination CMOS image sensor ensure an increase in picture quality and less noise when recording dark or dimly lit scenes.

Advanced wireless lighting
The P7700 supports Advanced wireless lighting, a part of the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS), which lets users control master and remote flash units to creatively play with light to emphasise subjects and snap more beautiful photos. In addition, the built-in flash is equipped with a commander mode function1, enabling remote control over a single remote Speedlight (rather than having control through a clip-on Speedlight).

3 inch 921k-dot vari-angle TFT LCD monitor
This bright, ultra high-resolution LCD monitor faithfully reproduces colours and has a wide viewing angle. The screen opens 0-180° to the left, and when opened, can be rotated 90° clockwise or 180° counter-clockwise; meaning users can keep their eye on the subject even when shooting from difficult angles.

Special Effects On The Go
A variety of special effects can be selected prior to shooting still images or filming movies, allowing users to fully explore their creativity. A total of ten special effects are available, including Cross Process, which creates images with unusual hues by converting a positive colour image into a negative colour image or vice versa; Zoom Exposure, which uses zoom to create dynamic pictures radiating out from the centre; and Defocus During Exposure, which adjusts focus during exposure for a softening effect.
