fantastic camera

Michael Platson "Educated Consumer", Amazon

  • 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.

Great camera for specific applications.

  • Summary: This camera is a dinosaur, but is perfect for use in astrophotography and other specialized applications. I had several mounts for this camera for my telescope, in addition to remote control, wide angle and 2x lenses. This is my third such unit. The first one failed (after nearly 10,000 images), and I accidentally drowned the second one in a massive thunderstorm (NOT lol at the time). If you are looking for a general purpose camera, buy something newer instead.

Nikon Coolpix 8700 8MP Digital Camera with 8x Optical Zoom

  • Summary: Bought this camera in Dec 1996. Found it to be a very complicated camera to use unless you shoot in Auto mode. In Auto it produces excellent Quality photos. Don't Recommend for Actions shots. Stills are excellent. Too many buttons to manurover around if you want to shoot other than Auto.I paid $999.00 plus Tax at Comp USA. A bit pricy,At this price you can buy a nice DSLR.Good luck in Figuring out how to use Filters. especially the ones that you like.

Nikon Coolpix 8700 8.0 Megapixel

etstrand001, Ebay

  • Summary: Although this camera is steadily becoming outmoded, it is absolutely stuffed with great photography and cinematic options which are no longer attributed to the equivalent versions of today's digital cameras. This means that the old Nikon 8700 has kept its relevance for budding am-pros. It is still easy to find accessories for this device via NikonUSA.com, Craigslist, eBay or Amazon.
