Broken

Amazon Customer "pachomp", Amazon

  • Summary: This camera has a built in zoom lens. If the lens breaks, you don't have a camera anymore. My lens is failing to zoom and now I have to buy a new camera although the rest of the camera works fine. It's money down the drain. Before the zoom malfunction, the camera took great pictures on a perfect day, but night time, indoor, and action pictures were almost always blurry even if you put it on the night time, indoor, or action settings.

A good camera but horribly unreliable

Zvi Schreiber "mzs", Amazon

  • Summary: I loved this camera but I have had to send it back 3 times for the infamous "system error 2" design fault which plagues many of these. The repair service is slow - the camera has been in repair 50% of the year I have had it.

Good, but not perfect

  • Summary: First, I love many things about this camera, most of them are mentioned in other reviews here, so I won't repeat too many of them. I especially appreciate the vibration reduction. It's tough to go from this camera to another one and deal with a shaky zoom. But that's what I'm doing now because: Bad: For the second time in less than a year, my camera's in the shop (under warranty) being fixed because, out of the blue, a "lens error" stopped all functions on my camera.

In the shop

  • Summary: I purchased a new Coolpix 8800 on March 16, 2005. I sent it in for service just two weeks later, on April 3rd. It has now been in the shop for more than 6 weeks. The main problems were severe focusing problems. A minor problem was that the cable to transfer pictures to the computer didn't fit securely to the camera and I needed three hands to hold the cable to the camera and manipulate the mouse at the same time.

  • Excerpt: "...look SHARP at high resolution, Nikon certainly wasn't that until i half the size of the picture by 2! I tried EVERYTHING, i later found out that the camera had a well known reputation for performing very poorly in low light! It was a problem i had to deal with! I tried for 6 days having so much faith in this camera, i had to return it. I exchanged it for the Canon EOS 350D (image quality cant be beat, check it out) PRO's - Great 10x ...
  • Pros: Amazing Zoom .  Design .  Features
  • Cons: Bad Focus .  Poor Image Quality
