Beginner's Headache

J. Hennum, Amazon
13 October 2006
  • Summary: The wide angle lens is great for taking closeups and fitting everything in the shot. The auto mode is good for outdoor shots, not so good for indoor. I am learning how to control the camera manually for taking indoor shots with low lighting situations. There are too many setup choices on this camera for the beginner. The 8400 definitely has a learning curve to the controls. It would have been a big plus to include a custom case with this camera.

  • Summary: This camera had long appealed to me due to its wide angle lens, but I always thought that the $~800 price was too high for a point-and-shoot that would inevitably be soon obsolete. However, once Ritz Camera cut the price in half (as Nikon had discontinued it), I had my camera! (value rating is for Ritz discount price) Although I have some issues regarding speed (both physical speed of camera and ISO speed, as discussed below), on balance, I am very happy with the camera...
  • Pros: -- WIDE ANGLE LENS!!! (24mm equiv). Don't think that there is any other point-and-shoot w/a lens this wide. This was reason alone for me to buy the camera. As an aside, the 24mm equiv. wide-angle on the Sony R1 is making it a very tempting camera as well., -- Ability to adjust settings (shutter speed, f-stop, white balance, etc). Separate dial settings for some of these items avoids need to dig through the menu., -- Solid build., -- Very useful movable screen. For exa...
  • Cons: --Slow, slow, slow. Saw one review that said that it would be good for action . . . sure, if you are shooting the photo-finish at the turtle track or the snail slalom. First, takes a long time (5 to 10 seconds) to boot-up. The delay between depressing the shutter and the taking of the photo is not too bad, just the time for the relatively efficient auto-focus to hunt around. The write speed, however, is abysmal for a TIFF or a RAW image (15 to 20 seconds -- JPGs not t...

  • Summary: I purchased this camera because I was looking to upgrade my Kodak DX 4330. I wanted something that would give me more manual control, but didn't feel I was ready to move up to a DSLR. I was looking at the Coolpix 8800, because I wanted something with more zoom, but I couldn't afford it at the time. I looked at many other cameras and was impressed with features from all of them. What finally made my decision was when Ritz lowered the price on this camera by $400.
  • Pros: Fully Automatic or Manual to fit any need., Excellent selection of presets., Takes excellent photographs at macro or landscape, and it's midrange is awesome., Good ISO range from 50 - 400 (can get a little noisy at 400), Auto Program works great 99% of the time., Large rotating Viewscreen, Buttons and dials are fairly well organized and reachable., Menus customizable, 2 User customizable presets.
  • Cons: A little slow in low light situations on Auto Program w/ flash., Can be a little overwhelming at first to novice users, but can be quickly learned with a little diligence and practice., No Image Stabilization.

I own a Nikon 8400

  • Summary: And after having a Nikon 950 for a number years, it was time to just move up. The one thing that I did buy with my N950 was a fisheye lense, which I really enjoyed. But after a while those fisheye picture really got kinda boring, but what I really enjoyed the most out of it was the Wide Angle'ness of the lense.

  • Pros: поворотный экран, крепкий корпус, до сих пор не сломался...
  • Cons: исо! Тормоза!

Die beste Coolpix, die es bis heute gibt

pittimann_2009, eBay.de
21 March 2009
  • Summary: Von der leichten Verzeichnung im WW-Bereich abgesehen, gibt es nur ein Problem, die Auslösungsverzögerung. Vergrößerungen bis 75x100 cm bei 50 ASA sind ohne Probleme möglich, das ist immer noch Spitze. Nikon sollte diese Kamera mit einem etwas größeren Chip neu heraus bringen. Aber wer macht schon gern Konkurrenz im eigenen Haus?

  • Excerpt: Wir wollten uns schon lange eine ordentliche Digitalkamera zulegen. Suchten hier und dort, hatten bestimmte Vorstellungen, aber auch eindeutig ein finanzielles Limit (max. 450,- €). Irgendwann im Frühjahr 2006 kam dann eine Werbemail von discount24.de, dass dort die Digitalkameras allesamt supergünstig wären. Ich stöberte ein wenig und entdeckte dabei, dass die Nikon Coolpix 8400 von 999,- € auf 449,- € gesenkt war.
  • Pros: Bildqualität  -  Farbtreue  -  Verarbeitungsqualität
  • Cons: nicht mehr lieferbar
