The Coolpix P7800 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Average optical zoom
Average minimum aperture number
F/2-4 NIKKOR zoom lens with 28-200 mm coverage \
\\Superior NIKKOR optics maintain image brightness throughout the zoom range, from f/2 at 28 mm wide, to f/4 at 200 mm telephoto. even when zoomed all the way out, images remain brilliant with high optical resolution. the seven-blade iris diaphragm enables beautifully defocused backgrounds, while the lens-shift VR (vibration reduction) system provides compensation for camera shake.\<br>\<br> backside illumination 1/1.7-inch CMOS image sensor \
\\The large CMOS image sensor enables great tonal gradation, and the backside illumination structure optimizes CMOS light intake for superior results when shooting at night.\<br>\<br> shooting style flexibility with vari-angle RGBW LCD monitor and electronic viewfinder \
\\Equipped with both a swiveling LCD screen on the rear and a viewfinder on top of the camera, you can choose the shooting style that best suits you. adopting an RGBW LCD monitor with high-brightness display setting enables superior visibility outdoors.\<br>\<br> usability and expandability much like a D-SLR \
\\Although compact, this camera handles like a D-SLR, with exposure dial, quick menu button, and function buttons for frequently used features. A rich selection of optional accessories lets you customize your photographic experience, including nikon creative lighting system which lets you use this camera\'s built-in flash as the \"commander\" to control external speedlights for synchronized operation. optional units available for wi-fi and GPS support.\<br>\<br> full HD 1080p movie recording with movie custom setting \
\\Shoot full HD 1080p resolution movies. A mode/m mode recording possible. AV stereo output, USB and HDMI for versatile connection, and 30 fps/25 fps switching for flexible output.\<br>\<br> other features \
