Nikon Coolpix 8800 digital camera

Henry Tucker, REVIEW STREAM

  • Excerpt: I recently bought myself a Nikon Coolpix 8800 8MP digital camera . This is called a “prosumer” or “bridge” camera , because it looks like a single-lens reflex (SLR) camera , but is in fact a large fixed-lens camera , although about the same size as the average SLR+lens, with an SLR-style 1.8-inch LCD viewing screen that can be pulled out and tilted various angles, as required. The Coolpix 8800’s lens has a 10x optical and a 4x digital zoom capacity.

  • Summary: I have read other reviews on this camera, and personally as you can see from my gallery, it does produce great shots time and time again. The 8800 does take a bit of playing around with in order to create the best settings for you, but that is why it has programmable modes, rather than just using the Auto mode. Plus it makes you a better photographer in the long run. It does take a while to focus, but with all cameras, it depends what you are using it for...
  • Pros: 10x good Optical Lens - 35-350mm, VR - stops blurring (when on maximum zoom helps a lot), Good Lithium-ion battery - normally get to take 800 photos on 8MP level before I need to charge it again
  • Cons: Slow focus time, Slow lag

  • Summary: I've had this camera for 3 months. My second digital so the learning curve was not so steep. My results have been mixed mostly due to MY errors. The camera handles very well, has a very good feel, not as small as some which I like better. The lens is exceptional which is my prime reason for the puchase. The write time complained about by many is not a problem for me, I use a 80x card and usually 5mp setting, works very well.
  • Pros: Exceptional lens, VR shake control, excellent handling, easy to use menu and controls, good battery life, IR remote device.
  • Cons: slow write time.

  • Pros: The 10X zoom is always useful. Extraordinary resolution.
  • Cons: Focusing speed is not SLR fast especially in low-light conditions.
