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.
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.
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.
I Love It. I Really do! ;DDDDDDDDD <3 great value for the money!

Summary: Own about 10 to 12 SLR cameras - late start in digital cameras. Tired of using old film style cameras so I purchased Coolpix 4300, S210, 995 and finally the 8700. Just got it today and what a deal (Macro & tele lens). Was amazed to find how easy it is to operate w/o owners manual. Forget a close of my dog and long shot of a bird plus my girfriend 62 y/o looks better with this Nikon 8700. Even got a kiss for my work!!!!!! Very pleased with the camera!!!!
