Summary: I've had this camera for just over 1 year. Picture quality out of the camera is phenomenal. With a high quality printer I get better pictures than I ever did with my 35mm. I would suggest a minimum of 32 MB compact flash card, but they're cheap now.
Summary: I have had a Nikon Coolpix 800 for just over a year - and have found it to be pretty good. What people say about the image quality is correct - it is excellent! A couple of hints: 1) Don't ever drop it, bang it or travel with it unless it is VERY well padded.
If you liked working with a manual 35 MM, the 800 is 4U

Summary: Heard about the images this camera and the 880 gave, and they are great! This is not a point and shoot camera, because you have to override some of the automatic settings when there is backlight or even frontlight.
Summary: I wanted a digital camera for all the usual reasons. In addition to its usefulness for emailing, my second reason is that I take hundreds of snapshots yearly that I throw out as soon as I get home - sometimes, while still at Kinko's.
Summary: I just bought my Nikon Coolpix 800 through Amazon (good buying experience, by the way, the camera was shipped within the two weeks Amazon said it would be). This camera is my second digital camera, replacing a 640 x 480 clunker.
Summary: Wow! What a bargain! At a price less than most of the competition (cameras w/ at least 2 megapixels), the Nikon Coolpix 800 is a steal. This camera has many advanced features, many found on higher-end cameras, although it's still simple enough for novice users, like me, to handle.
Summary: I received my Nikon Coolpix800 in the mail on Friday, almost in time to get all the nights of Chanukah. I took it to the dinner that evening and took pictures of the kids and other congregants. I also took it home and took some great close-up shots.
Summary: I've been a camera nut for over 30 years, but have always used 35mm or 2-1/4 film. I have had my Nikon 800 for 6 weeks now and doubt I will ever use film again. The photo quality is fantastic.
Summary: After reading just about every review I could find, I finally purchased the Coolpix 800. I was looking for a camera that was above 2 mega pixels and $500 or below. I have read some of the reviews about the low quality of pictures in a dark room, but after playing with the light meter adjustment I...
