Nikon Introduces P7800 Compact with EVF, and LD-1000 LED Light

Nikon Coolpix P7800

As an update to its P7700 enthusiast’s compact, Nikon introduces the P7800, which adds an electronic viewfinder into the mix. The P7800 sports the same bright 28-200mm f2-4 superzoom lens, but thanks to the added EVF has to do without the third control dial on the top. The display measures 3″ and sports an RGBW pixel matrix for improved visibility under bright lighting conditions. Both the articulated rear display an the EVF sport 921k dots. The sensor also apparently remains the same 1/1.7″ BSI-CMOS with a pixel count of 12.2 million. In addition to the P7800, Nikon also introduces an accessory LED light that can be used with all Nikon compacts that sport a tripod mount. Details after the break.
