The Lumix Panasonic DMC-LF1 opened the season, and now Nikon has been following the bandwagon of the pocket compact integrated electronic viewfinders and recently announced the Coolpix P7800. In fact, this is the main improvement of the new companies compact flagship, -with permission of the Coolpix A-, which keeps the design and much of the specifications for the Coolpix P7700.
Armed with a CMOS 1/1,7 inch and 12 megapixels of the same size and resolution as seen in the previous generation, the lens does not capture changes, keeping intact the 28-200 mm zoom stabilized with a luminosity of f2-4.
But it is certainly the new electronic viewfinder that allows the P7800 to distance themselves not only from its predecessor, but also facing the range of the Canon PowerShot G, with which it has obvious aesthetic and philosophy similarities.
In any case, the Coolpix P7800 chooses to keep the articulated screen (3-inch, 980,000-dot resolution), and although it does not have integrated Wi-Fi, it is compatible with the optional wireless adapter WU-1a.
