Technical Details

Product Description

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.

The Coolpix 775 is geared toward the casual photographer that is looking for convenience and compactness in a digital camera. The camera is light and tiny but still very comfortable to hold with the built in grip on the side of the camera (unlike Canon's Elph cameras). The 3x zoom range on the lens is unheard of in a camera this small!
What sets the camera apart is Nikon's exposure metering system and the scene modes. It uses Nikon's renowned sophisticated metering system to get the perfect exposure for nearly every shot. In addition, it has seven scene modes for common situations where the metering may be fooled (backlight, landscape, beach/snow, sunset, portrait, party/indoor, and night portraits). This is great for the novice that doesn't want to mess around with complicated manual exposure adjustments.
The 2-megapixel CCD is plenty for getting great 8x10 prints. You'll want to purchase a larger compactflash card because the included 8 MB card will definitely be too small to take more than 15 photos at the highest quality and resolution.
It comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and battery charger which many other digital cameras in this price range leave out.
Compared to the Canon cameras I have used, the colors are much more natural, especially for skin tones. The Nikons seem to go for the more natural colors as opposed to many cameras that go for more saturated and punchy colors
If you're looking for a camera with a ton of manual features (saturation control, aperture and shutter priority, full manual control, etc.) then you need to step up to the Coolpix 995, which costs twice as much.
I would definitely recommend the camera to the user that is looking for a great, easy-to-use, point and shoot digital camera that takes awesome photos for printing up to 8x10 photos or just digital photos to share.

I got into digital cameras through the Coolpix 990 (and recently upgraded to the 995). I love the power and flexibility of those top-of-the-line Coolpix cameras, but they weren't portable enough to make the cut for parties, light travel, and similar situations. From the start, I was evaluating this as a second camera: I have the 3-megapixel 995 for high-quality "composed" shots, and wanted a less expensive, "fun" camera for casual, everyday use. I was about to buy the Canon S110, but decided to wait for Nikon's 775 release, and I'm glad I did.
As a 995 user, I can use the same batteries and NikonView software with both cameras (unfortunately, the USB cable is slightly different to prevent people from trying the MC-EU1 remote cord on the 775). This fall, Nikon is even releasing the UR-E3 converter that will allow use of the 950/990/995's Wide-Angle and 2x Tele lenses!
Compatability aside, the 775 is a winner in it's own right. I really appreciate the 3x optical zoom (vs. 2x in the Canon S110), and the scene modes allow even greater refining of the quite-capable "auto" setting. You can get creative without delving into the world of manual settings -- great for first-time users, yet still offering something new and useful to the experienced digital photographer. As you would expect, Nikon delivers on its reputation for high-quality optics and great pictures, even from its 2-megapixels. The "macro" close-ups are unbelievable (the Canon doesn't even come close). Think mini-950.
The only area where the Canon beats the 775 is size -- the Nikon is a good deal thicker front-to-back (I could put the Elph in a shirt pocket, but the 775 just won't fit). I figure it's a small price to pay for a 3x zoom.

The Coolpix 775 is my first digital camera buy. I finally found a camera with all the features (recharger included, >2 megapixels, smaller size, compact flash). After using it for a week, I was very pleased with it. The size makes it very convenient to carry around. It is very easy to use. The one-touch upload is a neat feature. Pictures on first impression are quite good.
However, as I play with the photos that it takes a little more, I do notice some image quality issues that I didn't notice originally. First, many pictures have a slightly greenish hue to them (more common in lower light situations), though this is not really a big problem. I find that using an editing software and backing off on the green slightly corrects the colors. The other image quality issue that I note is a little more bothersome. On close inspection of the images, many areas have slight "noise" in them consisting of reddish and greenish bands and spots. When zoomed out, they blend fine without any noticeable color problems. However, if you increase the color saturation in image editing software, they become very obvious. I found this to be a problem when getting prints made at Kits camera as the digital media photo printer that they use automatically increases saturation on the images before printing, which causes noticeable red and green artifacts/noise in the pictures.
Despite the image quality issues above, the price/size/convenience can't be beat.

The choice of digital cameras are evolving. They will become more and more specialized. This is a good multipurpose everday camera. It is very small, lightwieght, two mega-pixel camera that met my requirements for my photographic needs. I wanted at least two megapixels, small enough to fit in a pocket, optical zoom, macro capable without extra lenses, compact flash memory, and a widely available battery. There were important to me because (1) my first camera Kodak DC 290 shot very good pictures for my needs at that pixel range (2) I wanted something smaller (3) optical zoom because I can do digital zoom back on the computer so who needs the camera to do it (4) compact flash because its faster and cheaper, and Sony didn't learn from betamax and created another format error, memory sticks (5) I don't like it when a company sticks the consumer 80 to 100 bucks for 'special' batteries for a camera (see Cannon Elph). This narrowed the list down to just a few cameras. This one just felt the best in my hand. Takes great shots, has a self closing lens cap (a nice bonus). A great everyday camera. Although you can't buy batteries at the gas station or quick mart; it uses a veyr common camera battery available at photoshops, drug stores, and discount retail outlets. It comes with one set of rechargables, but its nice to be able to afford inexpensive backups for special events and travel.
