Nikon P7800 PDF User Manual
Did you lose or misplace the instruction manual that came with your Nikon Coolpix P7800? It happens all too easily, but fortunately Nikon makes a soft copy available that you can browse through online, print out, or download (see the pdf file below). It is certainly good practice to carefully familiarize oneself with the many different functionalities and options that the P7800 offers, and the official user manual is without doubt an authoritative and comprehensive source of respective information.
That said, the instruction booklet can be a dry read, so that a dedicated camera guide book from a professional photographer that illustrates the camera's core functions in a real life photography context can be a very helpful complement. Yes, getting one of these camera guides (see here at amazon) would involve an additional expense, but if that book helps to exploit the camera's potential to the full, the (small) additional investment may well be worth it.
Also, you might want to check out the video tutorial on the Nikon Coolpix P7800 below.
In any case, the P7800 is an advanced imaging tool, whose many features merit serious attention. This fixed lens compact camera was officially introduced on September 5th, 2013, which means that, as of today, the camera is 3310 days old (young?). The camera has meanwhile been discontinued, but there has not been a direct replacement model for the P7800 from Nikon.
