Today Nikon announced the predecessor to the P7700–the Coolpix P7800. The P7800 features the same 12.2-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and the same fast maximum aperture f/2.0 lens; however, it now sports a new electronic viewfinder.
Check out our review of the P7700 here. The P7800 has many of the same specs: a 1/1.7-inch 12.2-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor, a 7.1x zoom range (28-200mm equivalent), and a 3-inch vari-angle 921k dot LCD screen. Advanced users will appreciate the full manual controls (P,S,A,M) and the ability to capture RAW files. The P7800 is also capable of recording Full HD video. The P7800 is compatible with many Nikon accessories, including Speedlights, the wireless remote control and the external GPS units.
New to the P7800 is a high-resolution eye-level electronic viewfinder (EVF) for those users that just can’t do without one.
The Nikon P7800 will be available in September 2013 for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $549.95
