Great picture quality!

David J. Grant, Amazon

  • 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.

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.

Good digital camera

Bruce Coryell, Amazon

  • Summary: For the most part, I'm quite happy with my Coolpix 800 (bought at Amazon.com). It certainly gets the job done, and the images are as good as what I've gotten with my 35mm SLR, if not better.

BetsyR, Amazon

  • 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.

Highly recommended

  • 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...

Great value+pic quality if you don' t need lots of features.

James Bradley, Amazon

  • Summary: The camera has no USB connector--it uses a serial wire, which means it can connect to most PCs or older Macs, but needs an adapter or a USB-enabled flash card for newer Macs. Apart from that it takes good pictures and at the price it's selling for now it's a good entry into digital photography.

Some reconsiderations on the camera

  • Summary: Since I wrote my first review, I have had the opportunity to play around with the camera and to take hundred of pictures, no doubt the camera is great, still have the problem of having a very slow lens, that requires a lot of ilumination to make those great pictures.

Good Quality Images. Will Cost a lot more than you expect.

Amazon
11 August 2000
  • Summary: The quality of the images are very good and the 2 MB products are very much the *sweet spot* for amateurs and will be suitable for everyone except proffessionals. Be warned though that you should prepare to spend quite a bit more than the cost of the camera.

This camera does the job like few other digital cameras.

Amazon

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix 800 is hard to beat. It's easy to use, produces great quality photos and the price is second to none. I have tried other digital cameras -- Kodak, Olympus, Sony, and more expensive Nikons -- and this one is by far the most impressive.

Nikon Coolpix 800

18 June 2000
  • 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.
  • 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
