Weighing a mere 6.5 ounces (not including battery or memory card), the Nikon Coolpix 775 is one of the lightest 3x zoom digital cameras available. The ultracompact Coolpix 775 has a 2.14-megapixel CCD for prints up to 8-by-10 inches, a 3x optical zoom lens (plus an additional 2.5x digital zoom), and advanced image processing features to ensure clear, vivid images under almost any lighting conditions. Comparable in design to the popular Coolpix 880, the 775 also shares similar features, such as selectable scene modes for specific shooting situations. The seven scene modes included are backlight, landscape, beach/snow, sunset, portrait, party/indoor, and night portraits. In addition, the 775 has a built-in flash with five modes, a 1.5-inch LCD monitor, 256-element matrix metering, and USB interface.
The Coolpix 775 also features a comfortable side grip for easy shooting and comfortable access to all of the camera's controls. To provide added shooting flexibility, the 775 offers a versatile zoom range which lets users get close to the action when objects are far away or zoom out wide when taking group photos or shooting in close proximity. At the heart of the camera's zoom capabilities is Nikon's exclusive all-glass 3x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens, featuring a zoom range of 38-115mm (35mm equivalent).
You can upload your photographs from the Coolpix 775 with just the click of a button. And after that, e-mailing, printing, or sharing on the Internet follow with easy-to-use software designed for the busy person who wants to enjoy hassle-free digital photography. With that in mind, the 775 also comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and battery charger and an 8 MB CompactFlash card so that you are ready to shoot pictures right away.
