Hello. I have a 7800 as a 2nd camera for times when space and weight are a concern. I love the camera but it is quite different to what I've used in the past; similar / same functions but a different way of doing them. So, I may be blind to what I'm trying to do. Traditionally I use focus hold a lot. That is, press a button to lock and hold focus, recompose, shoot with exposure settings from new position / angle. Then continue taking more shots with the focus lock still held at the same...
Hi there, My husband just received his 30 year long service award with the company he is employed with. There are several options re awards one can choose from...one of them being a free camera out of a choice of seven. BUT...we are not in the 'know' so to speak re cameras. Therefore, we have been trying to research the different brands we can choose from...my nephew suggested we check out your website. Not going to lie...we are both OVERWHELMED...and were very excited when we noticed...
Searching for a screen protector, I find a large number of generic pull-offs (meaning they only last so long and the package includes more than one), but I am looking for a Zagg or other name brand that is permanent. Seems that Zagg and others, when they do not produce a camera-specific protector, sell by size; I don't know that all "3-inch" screens are the same proportions -- or are they? One brand says that the screen is 60.5mm x 45.5mm. 1. Can anyone verify that, or that the 3-in screens...
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...
