Summary: I first bought this Nikon Coolpix in the 1990's for (get this) $826.00. Digitals for the novice were just getting some attention. At the same time I bought one of the first HP Photosmart printers. The combo of these two were a big wakeup for someone who loved 35mm. I took thousands of pics with the coolpix and printed that still look great. However, one night a friends' child knocked my camera off the counter and broke the lense.
A nice solid digital camera-nice pics-ease of use.

Summary: This one will get you started! Very nice pics for a 2 MP camera. A perfect camera for starting out or as a reliable spare. Too large for a pocket unless you have a coat with big pockets. If you're not concerned with extra large sized photos than this is the one for you! I also have the 880 which has more "bells and whistles" but keep this one as a spare. For the money,you can't buy a better 2 MP camera!
Summary: I purchased a Nikon Coolpix 800 back in 1999. It was my first camera, and I used it as often as possible. It was a very decent "point and shoot" camera, and I was also able to add a screw-on wide-angle lens that increased the productivity of the camera. I eventually upgraded six years later for a Nikon D70, but the Coolpix 800 still has some great memories for me.
Summary: Although an older Camera by Nikon, it has included many of the more expensive aspects, expected fron Nikon! The only thing was a poor (Battery Door Cover).. being made from plastic, has a tendency to break!
Summary: I bought this camera because I had one like it that I had to get fixed and I needed something to carry me through while Nikon had it. I've used this model camera without a hassle for maybe a decade. Since the year after it came out, anyway. I originally bought it because a consumer magazine review rated it higher than the models that replaced it. The chip that grabs the picture is superb. The lens is sharp -- just wish it would go a little wider.
Summary: The coolpix 800 is an excellent camera for taking 2.1 Mega-Pixel photos. It has a number of settings which some of the newer coolpix cameras don't have. The user interface is, however, not as intuitive as it should be. It takes great pictures and has been reliable throughout the 1000's of pictures I have taken with it. Getting the pictures out of the camera is another story, as it has no USB port - plan on buying a USB compact flash card reader if you buy this camer.
Pros: Slow turn on time, no rechargeable batteries, no USB port, user interface needs improvement
Cons: Slow turn on time, no rechargeable batteries, no USB port, user interface needs improvement
Summary: Compré esta cámara que actualmente está descontinuada en un remate de saldos por internet a U$S 100. Por ese precio no podría haber conseguido nada mejor. Tiene mejor calidad de imágen y de lente que cualquier cámara a ese precio (normalmente solo ofrecen un horrible zoom digital). Tiene una pantalla LCD mas grande y mas brillante que muchos modelos mas nuevos y mas caros. Se puede hacer balance de blancos, y ademas los presets andan muy bien.
