P7800 & WU-1a

The more and more I use and play with the Coolpix P7800, the more I really like it! The image quality for such a simple capture device is simply amazing. And it’s so much fun to shoot with, I went and got WU-1A Wireless unit. It’s a small unit, I mean small and it runs off the batter of the P7800 so it’s not got a huge range. But when using with the Nikon WMU App, you can remotely fire and if you wish, upload images to your smart device. Neither the WU-1A nor the app are meant to be or are as sophisticated as say the Cam Ranger for the D4, nor are they the same price. How could you make great use of this simple technology? You could place it as a remote on a bird feeder to get them use to a camera while at the same time spying on who is coming in. You could set up the P7800 behind you and take BTS, project...

A Moment in the Clouds

Oh man, what a week! It was simply a killer time in a gorgeous place with some down right really nice folks! Good food, laughs and photography sure does make the time fly.

When we finally arrived at Glacier Point itself and were in place, the wind and completely died and left the clouds stacked up and dark on our heads. It went from great to, OK at best but we still made the most of it. One of the best parts of the whole time was being with folks who had never...

Coolpix P7800 in Yosemite

Yeap, I’ve got a new Coolpix, the P7800 and it’s really cool! I have the 7000 and just updated to the 7800. Why? There are a couple of reasons, the first being the built in variable zoom going from 28-200m which permits me a little more flexibility than a fixed 28mm (but I love the small size of the Coolpix A still) along with a max f2! It also has the built in viewfinder which really helps me as well. And tested here, it has excellent low light noise quality. I’ve just started to shoot with it but I really like it so far....
