Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Silver Award May 2013
Overall, the P7700 is an excellent compact camera for anyone who wants the maximum possible versatility, coupled with image quality good enough to satisfy reasonably critical use.
Jeff Keller Jeff Keller


The Coolpix P7700 offers an impressive feature set, a longer zoom range than most of its competitors, a fully articulating LCD, and very good photo quality. Unfortunately, it is marred by very slow write times, especially in RAW mode which makes continuous shooting a chore, and really forces you to use the fastest memory cards available for best performance.

Reasons to buy

  • Good image quality for the class
  • Versatile 28-200mm equivalent zoom
  • Articulated LCD screen is handy for video and awkward angle shooting
  • Option to wirelessly trigger additional flashes
  • Strong video feature set including mic socket and manual exposure

Things to consider

  • Comparatively slow operation (particularly when shooting Raw)
  • Lens aperture isn't as bright as some competitive cameras

Suggested for

Enthusiasts seeking a compact with great image quality at low sensitivities, a plethora of manual controls, an articulating display, and more zoom power than the competition.

Not suggested for

Photographers who will shooting RAW files continuously and don't want to wait to take the next photo. And, of course, optical viewfinder lovers.

Impress with every shot

Endless creativity and superb image quality

The COOLPIX P7700 satisfies even the most passionate shooters. At its heart is a 1/1.7" 12.2-megapixel CMOS sensor—larger than the sensor in most compact cameras—that delivers exceptional image quality and detail. Use that power to bring every shot to life in vivid clarity. A 7.1x Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens takes you from wide-angle (28mm) to telephoto (200mm) in an instant. Create an expansive landscape one shot, a stunning close-up the next. But as powerful as the COOLPIX P7700 is, you don't need to be a pro to excel with it. Whether you prefer letting Auto Mode do the work for you, using Scene Modes to match your shooting situation or taking complete control of your images with full manual control, you'll be proud of every photo and video you create.

Excel in low-light situations

Bright f/2.0 lens and highly sensitive CMOS sensor

Great low-light performance starts with the lens, and the COOLPIX P7700 has one of the best lenses we've ever put in a COOLPIX camera. With a maximum aperture that's wider than most compact cameras (f/2.0), the 7.1x Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens gathers maximum light so you can shoot with faster shutter speeds. Combine that with a highly sensitive CMOS image sensor and Nikon's renowned ISO performance, and you'll capture the shots you've been missing—low-light indoor shots, evening group shots around a fire, nighttime cityscapes, fast-moving subjects and much more.

COOLPIX P7700 keeps up with fast action

Create with remarkable speed

Fast operation and continuous shooting

Life moves fast, but the COOLPIX P7700 keeps up. In an instant, it powers up, zooms in, autofocuses and captures stunning shot after shot. Hold down the shutter button and fire a blazing-fast 8 fps (up to 6 shots) for some of the most impressive action-freezing sequences you've ever seen. Plus, every photo and video will be sharp and steady, even if your hands are not—Nikon's VR image stabilization ensures a little camera shake won't ruin the shot.

Find exciting new perspectives

Moveable 921,000-dot Vari-angle display

When you can swivel your camera's LCD display to just about any position, you're free to explore exciting new perspectives all around you. Hold the COOLPIX P7700 at ground level for a surprising new view of a common scene. In tight, cramped spaces, raise the camera overhead and get the shot or video you need. Every shot you frame, review or share is rendered in 921,000 dots of brilliant detail. When transporting the camera, protect the LCD by flipping it to the closed position.

Explore new possibilities

Full HD (1080p) video with stereo sound

Apply your creativity to videography. With the touch of a button, go from shooting stills to recording Full HD (1080p) videos that can easily be shared on your computer, social networking sites or an HDTV. The COOLPIX P7700 lets you use the optical zoom while recording, so you can frame exactly the shot you want. It also lets you maintain creative control; adjust the aperture and exposure settings, add creative filters, special effects and more. The built-in stereo microphone captures clear, natural audio (it even includes wind noise reduction), but for maximum sound fidelity, add the optional ME-1 stereo microphone.

Comfortable, smart design

The COOLPIX P7700 is designed to be used—as often as possible. Its compact, ergonomic body lets you create comfortably. All the camera's settings are accessible through easy-to-navigate menus, and key features are at your fingertips. You can even program your favorite settings for quick recall.

The new Nikon COOLPIX P7700 was announced in the late summer of 2012 as the company's Performance-series flagship, a camera designed with the true photo enthusiast in mind. As a current owner of the Nikon COOLPIX P7100, I was curious as to what improvements might have been made.

Read a good number of first-look previews, then decided that it was worth a second look. I luckily had a chance for a short hands-on local preview, along with a few other cameras as noted below, then decided that there were enough features and improvements that made the P7700 well worth considering, so I put in my order here on Amazon and waited for it to be released.

It's a decision that I don't regret. Getting down to the subjective nitty-gritty, here are my basic observations.

◆ Pros:

+ Substantial 7.1x optical zoom; extra punch over 4x or 5x helps
+ Fully articulated 3-inch Vari-Angle LCD display; extra sharp at 921,000 dots
+ New 12.2 Megapixel CMOS-type sensor; offers excellent image quality
+ Improved ergonomics; rational array of controls, easy to master
+ Rechargeable EN-EL14 Li-ion battery; averages 310 - 330 shots per charge
+ Full manual exposure plus Program, Aperture- and Shutter priority modes
+ Much faster operational speeds than the P7000 or P7100
+ Uses readily available SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards; full support
+ RAW (NRW) support; 19 Scene modes for creative control
+ ISO range is 80-1600; can be boosted to 6400
+ Accepts any Ø40.

Finally, Nikon puts a major effort into the advanced pocketable (uh. .jacket pocket) camera market. Unless you need 7 layers of HDR or a long action stopping lens, the P7700 is all you need. Images are sharp, 16 x 20+ prints are well within it's capability. Low light performance is excellent as is the micro function. One of the major online reviewers states that this camera has no micro capabilities. I thought so too until I discovered that after selecting micro in the on screen menu you have to push the ok button on the rotary sensor.

I purchased this at a local CS (price is the same everywhere for now) and compared it closely to the Canon G15 - which is the same price. Most obvious is the feel of the camera when you first pick it up. The last two digits of your hand curl around a grippy rubber covered projection on the right front of the body making it very secure in one hand - leaving the thumb and forefinger to manipulate the various adjustment dials. There is also a grippy flair out on the back - right where your thumb fits - thoughtful touch. This design can only bring grief for lefties - but the dial layout is super convenient for the rest of us. For instance the +/- exposure control in auto mode is a rotary dial, right under the thumb - no lifting and fumbling with that annoying ring (never used it didja).

Two rotary dials control manual exposure - thumb wheel on the back controls shutter speed and a wheel in front, under the forefinger, controls aperture. The screen stays bright throughout exposure manipulation - still looking for the stop down button. However, a sliding bar exposure meter is positioned below the on screen shutter and aperture info.

While the G15 has a slightly larger screen, it abandons the articulating function.

I have owned and enjoyed the Nikon CoolPix P7100, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5W (and briefly, the LX7K; it had a de-centered lens so I sent it back for a refund).
But this Nikon is something special.
The 28-200 lens is faster than its predecessor and it seems to me that it is sharper as well. AF is somewhat faster and more reliable, too. The flip'n'twist 3.0 inch LCD to me is an upgrade and is a tad larger than the Canon G-12's 2.7 inch display, and it deploys with a little stiffer motion than the Canon. I thought I would miss the OVF but even in bright sun, the LCD is perfectly adequate.
Raw files are much larger than the P7100's NRW files, so consider a faster, higher-capacity SD card to go with your new P7700.
What will really strike you, though, are two things:
1) the images are so much cleaner, less grainy and sharper than the P7100. Full zoom at 200mm effective still renders images that are sharp and contrasty.
2) the feel of the camera is much more solid, substantial and "pro-like".
This is a beautiful, must-have update on a camera that I really enjoyed before.
In essence, the Nikon CoolPix P7700 is a solidly built, impressive camera that you will come to rely on, appreciate and carry anywhere.
Just so you know, I did not buy the Nikon CoolPix P7700 from, so I did not experience any registration issues, though this has been resolved and buyers should have no registration concerns.
EDIT: As of 10/30/2012,the Nikon CoolPix P7700 review rating of 4 stars still reflects the negative ratings given by buyers who were told by Nikon that they could not register their new camera. This is so unfortunate, as this was a (very) temporary glitch on Nikon's part and has no bearing on the P7700's quality or useability.
