Great camera that is between a point and shoot and an SRL

  • Summary: I have been using a coolpix 5700 for years, but bought an 8700 and discovered it had some features that the 5700 did not. I like that it is like an SRL, in that you can use a view finder rather than the display. I do a lot of macro shoots, and I find it easier to focus using a view finder, it is also easier to steady the camera. I do a lot of nature work and the view finder is much better in bright light.

fantastic camera

  • Summary: for a product manufactured almost ten years ago this camera still holds up in many respects. the availability of settings is impressive if not exactly easily accessible and the quality of pictures leave a bit to be desired compared to today's standards ... but at this point its a bargain and a high quality one at that.

  • Excerpt: I recently purchased this camera because it was on sale. i needed a new one and I wanted to upgrade from the small pocket cameras I usually get. I thought since I spent more money, the quality would be a lot better. I was not impressed by the picture quality. I also didn't like the time it took to take a picture. I am looking for something that you can take mulitple pictures within several seconds. I returned the camera, since I wasn't completely satisfied with it.

The Nikon 8700 and the 8800 are extremely quite, quick and clear

  • Excerpt: The Nikon 8700 has a picture quality that is breathtaking. The controls are very ergonomic and easy to use. Nikon even sent a coupon for a free cleaning each year for five years. The viewfinder is large and clear and makes operating a breeze. A great value for the money.

Great Camera still takes better picts than current 14 mp cameras

  • Summary: I purchased my Nikon COOLPIX 8.0 camera as my very first digital camera. I was told when they got to 8.0MP that would be equal to 35mm boy that is a understatement! I have used this camera to blow up pictures to 16 by 20 inch and beyond. With NO blurring. One is a shot of my dog running at me full speed at the beach. The built in lenses are just amazing. Newer 14 mp cameras that are under $250 still are no where near as good as this thing.

This camera was a steal for $100.

  • Summary: OMG! I absolutely loved the camera I purchased. I own a Nikon D40, but I didn't want to take that much camera on my 7 day southern caribbean cruise. The coolpix 8700 was perfect. All I had to do was buy a strap and I went online to view the insruction manual for a few operation questions. I am so pleased with my purchase.

  • Excerpt: Noisy to a certain extend. AF... needs a lot of patience when shooting really close-ups (alright, I never got that minimum-3cm shot). Personally, rarely use those 12 preset scenes. Nevertheless, the Nikon Coolpix 8700 is a decent prosumer camera indeed.
