Nikon S8200 - Outstanding camera
from Denver, CO
I've used many compact and SLR cameras over the years. I am completely blow away by this Nikon Coolpix S8200. I also own a very expensive Nikon SLR with several lenes. I'll be using the S8200 much more than the SLR. This is just a great camera with great features that takes excellent pictures and movies.
This is my third Nikon Digital camera.

The COOLPIX S8200 is a fantastic camera. It takes crystals clear pictures and HD video. The shooting mode controls are very assessable and easy to use. The menus are also easy to follow. It has 8 shooting modes with finger tip control and many additional with menus. Picture quality is excellent with the 14 zoom lens and full digital zoom. In video mode there are many shooting options from HD, slow motion and fast motion all with quality pictures. The camera comes with a 228 page manual which covers in detail all the S8200 functions. The power button is small. The case is smooth. Exercise care when operating to prevent dropping.

Enjoying my new camera!
from Whitestone, New York.
I love my Nikon 8200. I have taken great pictures of my family and pet indoors and outdoors as well as at night and in the day. You are able to take pictures one after another without missing a shot or having to wait for the camera to reset. I have received many positive comments on pictures that I have posted to the internet. I have even been asked what kind of camera that I have. This is the fourth digital camera that I have owned and by far it is the best one. It is hard to shoot a blurry shot.
