  • Excerpt: I own the Coolpix 8800 digital camera and like it very much overall. The downside as I see it is - manual focus not real sharp and max. ISO is 400 - not great for indoor sports pics that require fast shutter speed & the lens is also a problem - somewhat slow.

Great Point and Shoot, with a few caveats.

  • Summary: I own a D70 and bought the 8800 for my wife. Initially she was very resistant to use the camera because it can be somewhat intimidating what with all that extra text in the viewfinder and the buttons and modes. With time, she warmed up to the camera and now loves it.

Check for RAW support with your Nikon Picture Project Program

  • Summary: My Coolpix 8800 with the image stabilization and zoom is a real pleasure to use. I just wish somebody had pointed one thing out to me. When I finally got my computer upgraded to handle large files, and tried some camera raw files, the Nikon PictureProject reported the raw (.nef) file was un...

Slow Write Speed for RAW Format

  • Summary: I've had the CoolPix 8800 for about 2 months. It is a remarkable alternative to more expensive digital SLR cameras. My first priority was to buy a camera that had RAW (Nikon NEF) file format capabilities. The 8800's 8-megapixel RAW images are 12 MB files.

Great pictures, quite a handful and slow in some instances

  • Summary: I own both the 8800 and 8400. The cameras are identical except for the zoom and the image stabalization on the 8800. If you shoot mostly landscapes, get the 8400, the wide angle on it is the best around. THIS IS NOT A POINT AND SHOOT CAMERA.

Love my 8800, but...

  • Summary: This is a fabulous camera! I love the point and shoot mode plus all the many, many other functions for when I want to use them. The only problem is the lag-time from taking the picture to getting it on the memory card.

The 8800 is a great all around performer

J. Wong, Amazon

  • Summary: I own three 8 mp digicams--the Nikon 8800, the Minolta A2, and the Olympus 8080. My Minolta sees use mainly in sports situations where its manual lens and fast focus are great assets, and I'm less concerned about sharpness. The 8080, in good light, takes the sharpest and cleanest pictures.

Pretty good, but...

  • Summary: By now you've read everyone else's reviews. I agree with them except that I do have some issues that people might run into with this camera. 1> My main problem with this camera is it's low light focusing - in low light conditions, I would swear that it does its focus sweep, seems to get the focus...

Really great Digi Camera... LOTS of options to choose from

  • Summary: I started out with a Nikon Coolpix 950 5 years ago, and we still have it! Last year I received the Nikon Coolpix 3100, and still own it as well (great little camera). I wanted something that had more capabilities, as I am becoming very involved in photography again.

  • Summary: the VR feature is good. i always want a camera with a telephoto lens that has VR that is affordable. It greatly reduces blurred shots for telephoto shots. when the camera writes the buffer memory to card even on single shot mode. the whole camera is useless. it simply locks up.
