Hi All, I've discovered that when using my P7800 in either shutter priority or manual exposure mode that the flash won't fire in the "auto flash" mode (default setting). It doesn't matter how dark it is, the flash won't fire. In aperture priority or program mode it works as expected. To get the flash to fire in shutter priority or manual, I have to switch to "fill flash" mode or one of the other flash modes besides "auto". This behavior applies to both the built in flash and external...

Hello everyone Been sometime since I've posted in this forum - my 7100 hasn't had much use in recent times through no fault of its own, I've tended to use my N1 stuff much more.  However (and I confess to being a GAS sufferer!) there are times when, despite being a fan of the N1 system, a SINGLE camera without a bunch of even lightweight lenses would be preferable. The P7100 produces (as you all know) great IQ and I've managed to resist GAS and the P7800 to date - but as the prices are really...

Since my last post, I kept the P7800, bought David Busch's book and am now taking a photography class and am learning how to use all the various features. My teacher and classmates are always impressed by the features on this "point and shoot," and they all have dslr cameras. I've seen a 2.2 high definition super telephoto lens with lens adapter (not by Nikon shown on Newegg).  Has anyone had any experience with this accessory?  What do you more seasoned camera people think?  Thanks.

I understand that Nikon some time ago decided to not provide a 'method' to 'attach' a filter to their point and shoot cameras including the P7800.  Are there ANY third party options/work-arounds for this problem?  This is a deal killer for me as much of my shooting is around bodies of water and filters are needed. . . besides a UV filter on any camera lens is just a smart thing to do. --KZMike

Hi: I bought a "like new" p7800 based on buying guide (round-up: enthusiast compact camera.) I want to learn more about camera features, outside of always using "auto," and think this camera has a lot of features to work with. This means learning new language, ie., ISO, aperture, f-stop etc. My questions: Is this a difficult camera to learn to use? Or should I be using something less complicated? I'm thinking about buying the David Busch book. Is this camera fast enough to capture...

Does the EVF show what your image will look like? i.e. If I change the f stop in manual or A setting, will the EVF reflect that change? --tourretiredTravel in RV when not home.

I wanted a small, pocketable (big pocket), good quality camera.  After doing my research it looked like the P7800 was a good compromise of lens range, sensor size and features compared to getting a mirrorless or larger camera.  Most reviews are good but I'd like to know what users find not so good. Taking it in my pocket to Norway the end of the month instead of my mirrorless system. --tourretiredTravel in RV when not home.

hi folks, hanging my nose over a P7800 - its good bits I find compelling, and am hoping its, umm, less-good bits are bearable but... in reading up on its features it looks like the manual focus 'aid' only enlarges the central area of the 'frame', and can't be 'moved' (i.e. around the image area)? Can any users confirm or clarify this for me? --Marc

Hello! This is my first post here, though I often read the reviews and discussions... I'll soon be off on my first trip to Europe and would like to buy a good camera to use during the 3 weeks that I'll be there. I've shortlisted the S9900, P610 and P7800 (all Nikon) after reading many reviews on many websites. All these fall within my budget of 300-400 $ (I live in India). The camera will be used for posed portraits, buildings and landscapes, mainly; no animals/ children/ sports (unless I...

I have a Nikon Coolpix P7800 and I have never been able to get the shooting menu to highlight Metering so that I can select the choice of method of metering. I don't know if the camera is defective or if there is a procedure to make the a Metering menu item active.  rogerandy@sbcglobal.net
