back button focusing. Or something similar to that. I'm coming from a Nikon D300 and I'm so used to using back button focusing I just really really want that feature in my compact cam I've looked at the NIkon P7800 and while it has a lot of things I like I realize that you can't reassign the AE-L/AF-L button to function as back button focus button. anyone know of any brands that would allow this?

Page 30 of the Nikon P7800 Reference Section of the manual titled, "Qual Movie Options" gives this information:Option (Image size/ Frame rate, File format)1080*/30p 1080*/25p (default setting)1920 × 1080 (High)1080/30p 1080/25p1920 × 1080So the difference between 1080*("star")/30p and 1080/30p settings is that the 1080*("star")/30p setting says "High". High what? High quality? Does that mean less compression? The manual does not elaborate. Files shot in each of the two settings seem to be the...

Hello!  I just got the P7800 a few days ago, and am working through learning how to use it properly.  I was wondering if someone more experienced (which would be just about everyone!) could give me some guidance.   I am trying to shoot in Program mode.  I have it set to Auto-800 ISO.  Whenever I want to take a shot indoors, it wants the shutter speed to be 1/30 of a second, which is just too slow to take sharp pictures of my kids.  Rotating the command dial should give me the option to choose...

Does Nikon P7800 supports  HDR (exposure) bracketing in raw format? If yes, what is the EV step? Yesterday when walking I missed the picture of 2 small lizards because there was no macro capabilities on my Lumix GM1 camera lens. Fuji x20 came to my mind which I sold some time ago - actually a very capable camera. With raw HDR and Macro, missing only variable angle screen - that is why Nikon P7800 might be better choice.

Hi all. I have a P7100, bought as a possible replacement for my nice but a bit dated Coolpix 8400. In a lot of ways, it's a nice camera. I like the overall design, the controls at one's finger tips and the excellent lens. And the viewfinder, which even if you have to guess a bit with framing, at least tells you you're pointing the thing where you want to. I should mention that I'm almost entirely interested in landscapes. As far as compacts are concerned I want something to stick in a...

After asking several questions on these forums, (thank you to everyone who has helped so far) and loads of research, dp's buying guides, etc, I think I have narrowed my choice down to three.  Can I trouble you for some advise, what your personal preference would be? I know that they aren't really all in the same class, but I want a camera that is smaller and easier to transport than my DSLR, has good IQ (particularly in low light) and good connectivity.  I like the idea of controlling the...

Hi forum, recently i was in a rush and lay my camera with the lens facing downward onto the table and undeliberatly turned it on. I didn't realise straight away and am now worried i might have broke the lens mechanics, although it still works seemingly. I was wondering if there was any built in safety measures that stopped the lens from emerging if there was an obstacle hindering it.I couldn't find any technical explanation with a google search so i hope to find some answers here. Thx for...

Just curious if any P7700/P7800 owners are using the Gorillapod "hybrid" tripod. If so, does leaving the quick release plate attached to the camera conflict with the battery door opening? I was considering purchasing one but I don't want to have to remove the plate every time I want to access the battery or SD card. Regardz, RobBobTom

When using an SB-910 on my P7800 two things happen that I don't understand:A) The flash says ISO-AUTO even when I have clearly set the ISO on the camera.B) The flash only fires in Single shot mode, not when the camera is set to any of the Continuous shooting modes.Anybody out there have any answers? The P7800 manual doesn't address these topics.

I posted this over on the Nikon Coolpix forum too, but not a lot of activity over there and I'm leaving on vacation shortly and was hoping for an answer :) Hi all - I recently purchased a P7800 which I really like (previously bought the Sony NEX3N and still have it, but for various reasons like the 7800 better). My question: Somehow the display on the LCD appears to crop itself after it's turned on. i.e. when I first turn it on, it appears to fill the whole display left to right, but after a...
