A very expensive mistake - Buy Canon instead

J. Paine "JRBX", Amazon
9 August 2011
  • Summary: We don't have much money but when my husband and I got married we wanted to be able to have a nice camera to take with us on our honeymoon because we had saved up a long time to be able to go. We couldn't afford an SLR so got what the reviews seemed to indicate was the next best thing: Coolpix 8800. We spent nearly $900 on the camera and believed it was worth the cost because it was Nikon and would last a lifetime.

Coolpix 880 problems

JLP "JLP", Amazon
11 April 2009
  • Summary: I have sent this camera in to Nikon three times in as many years. Takes six weeks or more for repair and has cost from $50 - $110. Now I get a system "error 2" message and they tell me to send it in and they THINK they can fix it, but are not sure. You pay shipping both ways. I am told by other people with the same problem they have sent theirs in and shortly after it started again. Will NEVER buy another Nikon.

MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT

Will Forsberg "Will", Amazon
11 February 2007
  • Summary: My Coolpix 8800 lapsed into "system error 2" mode within weeks of getting it. After taking 3 or 4 shots the error message comes up and I have to shut it down and start it back up to take a few more shots before the error 2 message recurrs. Nikon says to try a fresh battery and different storage card...no help. Now Nikon says says send it in and we'll fix it- but don't say what it will cost...

Bad focus for a great camera.

V. Segos, Amazon
9 September 2006
  • Summary: The camera has really amazing features. But it also has an outrageously major focus weekness. I made a mistake of buying one.

Nikon Lens Error

Elston Hill "Elston", Amazon
10 March 2006
  • Summary: I was down in Antarctica when I turned on the camera and it said "lens error". After a day of missing some of the best pictures of Emperor Penguins with my 8800, I twisted the lens and got it to work. The same thing happened to me in Bolivia, just after the warranty expired. I called Nikon and they insist there is no problem with the camera. Do a Google search of "lens error" and Nikon 8800 and you will find lots of unhappy people with the same experience.

Poor Technology for the price

BL-A, Amazon
1 June 2005
  • Summary: Abysmal bit of engineering. I returned the first one because I thought it must be defective. No camera at this price could have bad focusing and snail-like write times and lag, right? Wrong! This camera has a sharp lens, but do your homework. It's a VERY slow chunk of glass and the contrast based AF module ruins shot after shot. Lag and write times mean you can't catch a special moment unless everyone agrees on a time and place for it.

Poor Camera with Great Lens

Capt RB, Amazon
26 December 2004
  • Summary: These are my updated comments on the 8800. After a disappointing experience with the coolpix 8800 from Nikon I decided to return the 8800 in favor of the D70 DSLR from Nikon with the Nikkor 18-70mm lens kit. Like some people, I was under the (okay, silly!) impression that the 8800 could deliver near DSLR like shooting in a more compact camera. Not even close, especially if you shoot with challenging lighting conditions (low contrast).

8800 Falls Short...FAR short

sailingshot, epinions.com
22 December 2004
  • Summary: Just not worth the price. Too many flaws. Buy a DSLR if you want true performance.
  • Pros: Great lens, good build quality.
  • Cons: Slow, slow Camera. Can't make the grade in challenging conditions.

Problemas con la Nikon Coolpix 8800

Andres, quesabesde.com
4 July 2005
  • Summary: La cámara tenía muy buena pinta, pero me duró 3 dias. Al 4º dia salió el mensaje "System error 2" y no hubo manera de hacerla funcionar...Así que espero que tengais mas suerte que yo con la cámara y que no os de el error que parece empieza a ser frecuente en los modelos Coolpix.

Coolpix 8800, Nikon ¿ Marca de prestigio ?

Roberto, quesabesde.com
14 June 2005
  • Summary: Sinceramente compré esta cámara por el "prestigio" que tiene esta marca. No tengo ni 15 días con ella y ya me apareció el famoso error system 2. ¿ Cómo se atreve Nikon a vender cámaras defectuosas ?. Lo peor de todo es que la compré en Estados Unidos y vivo en México. Intentaré regresarla a la tienda aunque pierda por lo menos 300 dólares. ( impuestos y envíos que tendré que pagar ) Por favor !! No la compren !!
