New Nikon Coolpix P7700

The Nikon Coolpix P7700 has 12-megapixel CMOS sensor, and a new left-hinged vari-angle screen. The 7.1x zoom lens (28-200mm) starts at a fast f/2, moving to f/4 at full telephoto. Nikon however says the larger, brighter lens left less room for an optical viewfinder, so no viewfinder in this slim compact.

The Nikon Coolpix P7700′s heart is a 1/1.7-inch type, backside illuminated CMOS image sensor with an ISO sensitivity range of 80 to 1,600. Data is processed by Nikon’s EXPEED C2 image processor, which allows for a fast eight frames-per-second frame rate.
