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...

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 second it switches to a smaller squar-ish that doesn't fill the fill screen left to right.  There is also a set of brackets in the middle of the screen -...

Hello, Purchased the P7800 several months ago and have read nothing about being able to tether the camera to a computer while shooting. I have tried using the included USB transfer cable and various capture software with no success. The camera's light comes on (as it does for a transfer) but lens does not 'open' and the LCD monitor does not turn on. Was wondering whether there may be a way of doing this.  Any work-around? Thanks, T

Hello. This is my first post in this forum, and on Dpreview for that matter. I have been shooting Nikon DX format for the past several years, but recently purchased a P7800 to lighten the load when traveling on business (always like to have a decent camera along, but the DSLR kit really adds to the weight and bulk). Also nice that the P7800 uses the same batteries as my D5100. I also purchased a lens hood along with the P7800. My question is related to which size CPL to purchase for use with...

How do I set up the p7800 to work in programmed auto mode with sb600 flash? Camera and flash work well together with camera if full auto mode and flash set to iTTL. Good exposure, no problem. However I can not figure out how to have the flash fire with camera in programmed auto mode. I have read both camera and flash manuals and am still confused. According to Nikon website the sb600 is fully compatable with the p7800. Please help.   Thank you in advance.
