Good, but not worth the cost

  • Summary: I recently faced the "System 2 Error" many other users. Luckily, I have a three year warranty and it was fully covered and came back within 3wks of mailing (I sent it just before Christmas so it took longer).

Expected more from this camera, buy a SLR

  • Summary: I bought this camera few months after it came out. I like the features that it has. The Remote, the stabilization, the zoom. Why, you ask I give this camera a 3 star? well, first of all, I took many pictures with normal light. The results aren't as great as Nikon advertised.

Capable, but flawed instrument.

  • Summary: I have owned this camera since March of '05, so I've had time to use it under a variety of conditions. As of today, I have shot just under 4,000 shots with favorably mixed results. The best photos are great, with good color saturation, sharpness and overall quality.

  • Summary: This camera leaves a lot to be desired.
  • Pros: The camera is small and easy to take along.
  • Cons: Poor focusing. I have yet to get a nice sharp picture. The images are very noisey in low light situations.

A "fair-weather" camera...

Michael Long, Amazon
29 January 2005
  • Summary: I bought the 8800 as a second camera to use when I didn't want to cart the DSLR and it's bag of lenses around. After using it for about two weeks, it's been returned. On the surface, it seems to have a lot of features, but I'd have to characterize the 8800 as a "fair-weather" camera.

Terrific camera for perfect lighting conditions

  • Summary: I own a Canon "Elf" camera that uses APS film. It takes very nice pictures, but I wanted to upgrade to a camera that would have better zoom capabilities and would make it easier to exchange pictures with family.

Review of Nikon Coolpix 8800

simez77, Ciao
9 September 2005
  • Excerpt: I purchased a Nikon Coolpix 8800 a few months ago as a spare back up camera to my Nikon D70. I have owned a few digital compacts & found that the 8800 is a far more versitile compact towards my earlier compacts.
  • Pros: Compact & very light  +  Takes images in RAW format + 8m Pixel image quality
  • Cons: Drains Power quickly when connected to computer & while using rear view panel .

  • Excerpt: I finally decided to upgrade from my old Nikon Coolpix 995 camera, and plumped for what I saw as the top of Nikon's non-SLR range. This little beauty has an 8MP resolution, coupled with a 10x Optical zoom.
  • Pros: Great looking .  10X optical zoom .  Vibration Reduction feature .
  • Cons: Quite bulky .

  • Excerpt: On my search for my first digital SLR i finally convinced myself that Nikons 8800 seemed to be the best in its price range! The price was great for a 8 megapixel camera, and the massive 10x Zoom really appealed to me!
  • Pros: Amazing Zoom .  Design .  Features
  • Cons: Bad Focus .  Poor Image Quality

Un bon vieux bridge Nikon

  • Excerpt: Appareil solide, fiable. C'est un bridge : donc à optique fixe. Cependant il est doté d'un zoom trés intéressant. La qualité Nikon a un prix très abordable.NB Je crois qu'il est utilisable popur la photo de ciel et d'étoiles.
