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: 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: I got this from Amazon.com 3 days ago and is still shooting away. Sharp pictures, excellent focusing & light weight. Here are some negative points if that's what you are looking for - 1. It is a battery hogger.
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix 800 is a wonderful camera for the price and has some outstanding features typically found on higher-priced models. The automatic picture taking mode does a good job of metering and focusing while the manaul mode gives the user the ability to change ISO, exposure, white balance and...
Summary: If your thinking about buying a digital camera for this price definitely buy this Nikon 800. The 2.1 megpixels far outshine any 1.3 mega pixels cameras. The LCD monitor is like a tv. The battery life is also excellent I get about 1.5 hours on my rechargeables.
Better than my friend's Kodak 280 -- and cheaper, too!

Summary: I'm always the last guy in my group of friends to do something. They all graduated college before I did. They all got married before I did. They all had kids before I did. And they all bought digital cameras before I did. Being the last digital camera purchaser had its advantages, though.
Summary: This is the 3rd digital camera I've purchased. My first model was a 640x480, which looked good in emails, but was really lacking when I tried to print my pictures out. Next came a megapixel model, which was better, because it made prints look good, but I couldn't zoom or crop much before my pictures...
Summary: I bought this camera having never used digital, and I must say I was stunned! It is VERY easily used, and even if you're not electronically inclined, you'll figure it out in about 15 with the help of the QuickStart guide that comes with it.
