Observations below are based on my experience with the camera for the past 2 months. I am primarily a Nikon user (shoot with Nikon D5100+18-200 VR combo, and a few primes) and own two other premium compacts (Oly/Pana). I do NOT shoot for a living (yet). In my review, I have highlighted what I feel are the strongest and weakest points of the camera from a "still photographer's" point of view. Your opinion may differ.
What I like the most:
- Superb image quality (IQ) in good light, on par with my SLR with consumer lenses. In low light, I get clean images up to ISO 800 and fairly acceptable images up to 1600.
- Produces excellent results with Nikon Speedlight. Recently shot a friend's wedding using SB-400, and found the results very pleasing. The camera looks cute too with the SB-400 mounted :).
- Lovely control ergonomics, and very nice to hold too... the grip, size and heft feel just right. Dedicated dials/buttons for AE lock, exposure comp, etc. make it easy to adjust exposure on the fly.
- Amazing customizability – two Fn buttons, multiple useful options to set white balance, ISO, flash settings. Even my D5100 does not offer such flexibility with settings!
What irks me the most:
- I have only one gripe and it is a big one. The autofocus (AF) is very slow even in good light... makes it nearly impossible to take photographs of moving subjects (e.g. active children/adults). The camera just refuses to lock focus if there is the slightest movement in the subject. I have found it very challenging to get good candids (... and sometimes, even posed photos. For how long will people pose with a grin, waiting for the camera to lock focus?!).
- Related to AF speed, I found it is generally slow to respond to button presses. There is a lag of good full second (or two?) between each button press and any visible response on the screen. Not a deal-breaker, but can be annoying at times.
[Note on AF speed: I have tried different AF options available but nothing has helped. Note that I am comparing P7800's AF speed with those of my other compacts and not with the SLR. Of the compacts I own, I find XZ-1 the snappiest (have not measured in seconds, but very close to D5100's AF speed for practical purposes), followed by LX-7. Even my rusty 5-yr old Pana ZS3 (TZ7) is a tad faster than P7800. Maybe I have a lemon??]
P7800 compared to other compacts I have owned/used:
- I find Oly XZ-1 very easy to use... lets me change settings very quickly (despite having the least no. of buttons/dials of the lot!). AF is snappy and the menu interface is very responsive. Jpegs are punchy, sharp, well-saturated... so much so that I never bother shooting raw with XZ-1. Sadly, I find XZ-1's low light/high ISO performance rather poor/unpredictable, which restricts its use in low light situations (despite its stellar lens).
- LX-7 has good ergonomics much like P7800. It scores further with a lens that is the widest (24mm) and the brightest (f/1.4) of the lot. My only complaint is, the jpeg output is not to my liking... I prefer the punchy, "close-to-SLR" look that Nikon and Oly compacts deliver. Nevertheless, I do reach for the LX-7 frequently (especially when I need to shoot wide... or need to get good quality video).
- Overall, I still like P7800 the most (brilliant IQ, ergonomics, customizability, Nikon compatibility) despite the AF woes. I expect to get a lot more out of this camera as I learn to use it better and really hope its next iteration takes care of the AF/responsiveness issues.
Who would I recommend it too?
- Excellent choice for travel, landscape, nature, product photography etc. Based on my experience, P7800 seems to work best in situations that allow reasonable response time/opportunity to set up a shot.
- Not ideal for photographing kids at play, sporting events, or whenever you are dealing with a fast-moving subject (AF can be hit-or-miss in such situations).
- A sensible choice if you are invested in Nikon already (compatible spare batteries, external flash, wireless remote, etc.), assuming you are undecided while comparing with similar choices from Canon, Panasonic etc.
1. Superlative Image Quality- in spite of having a small sensor, the sharpness and fine detail excel, and approaches that of a DSLR with a good macro prime lens, which is saying something. In spite of having only 12MP, it is possible to crop into the image and still come out with impressive levels of detail.
2. High ISO quality- very good till ISO1600, and retains a fair amount of tonal punch and detail at this level.
3. Lens Range- the lens is equivalent to 28-200 mm (in 35mm terms), and is similar to the 18-135mm lens used by Canon and Nikon in their mid range DSLRs. Those lens themselves cost around 19k, when this cost be 26k. No competition.
4. Build-External- solidly built. Easy to grip. The weight is concentrated in the slim body, with the compact lens helping to maintain balance. Well padded with rubber.
5. Controls- as much as mid range DSLRs. There are 3 control wheels, 2 Fn buttons and more. Can be customized almost perfectly.
6. Has a hot shoe.
7. Can take in a normal lens UV filter (unlike Canon, which need some filter adapters as well).
8. Fully usable articulated monitor (DSLR monitors are practically useless because of slow LiveView AF).
9. Okayish EVF.
1. AF slightly slow for quick situations. That being said, budget DSLR lens are not that fast either. For the price, it is okay.
2. ELECTRONICS NOT DURABLE- This was the biggest shocker. The warranty is for 1 year, and just a little over that, the cam starts to misbehave. First there were freezes with the Nikon SB400 flash attached, and now recently the cam seems to have a mind of its own. The display jumps from the LCD monitor to the EVF on its own (there is no auto sensor, only a manual button). The buttons around the 4-way control wheel also cross-register commands.
This electronic defects that come up on a camera that has been very carefully used, just after the warranty has lapsed, leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Even my 8k FujiFilm S5800 from way back in 2008 is still working, as is my well used Panasonic TZ25. The Nikon P7800 is supposed to be a premium compact (as the 'P' tag suggests), and this lack of quality in its electronics does not deserve a recommendation.
