Nikon Coolpix 8700 Review

24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: De Nikon Coolpix 8700 is uitgerust met een CCD die 8 Megapixels aan resolutie oplevert. De laatste maanden is al veel geschreven over het wel of geen nut hebben van een hoge resolutie CCD en de daarmee gepaard gaande hogere ruiswaarden.

  • Excerpt: Le nikon Coolpix 8700 surfe sur la mode actuelle : les bridges caméra de 8 millions de pixels. Le boitier est très compact et possède un zoom puissant (8x) mais nous restons sur notre faim... Il faudra investir dans un trépied puisque le coolpix 8700 ne possède pas de stabilisateur.
  • Pros: Trés compact et écran orientable, Gère correctement le bruit pour un 8 Mpxls
  • Cons: Pas de stabilisateur, Viseur électronique
