Summary: My Nikon 8800 has traveled from the Amazon basin to the North Slope of Alaska and has taken over 100,000 photos. It has spent about a month in the hot, humid Amazon basin, a place which claimed the life of one of my past cameras.
Summary: I have owned the Nikon 8800 for two months now and I do love this camera--sharp photos, accurate color, and good ergonomics. Very well-built. This is a very feature-rich camera and I am still trying various features.
Summary: I bought this splendid camera when it was released last november in Hong Kong. Previously I had a Canon A 80, but there is no way to compare both. This Nikon is the pinacle of easy to use digital camera, but offers features only availlable to professional cameras.
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix 8800 is an excellent upgrade from the 8700. The image resolution, vibration reduction, zoom range, lens quality and build quality alone make this camera worth five stars. Sure, it is not perfect, but no camera is.
Summary: The 8800 is one of the best 8mp cameras out on the market today. As a photographer, in my early days, I was after sharp pictures. The 8800 delivers in this area and has one of the best zoom lens of any digital camera. I've compared them all.
Summary: I was wondering if the upgrade from my Olympus C-2100Z 2.1mp to this 8mp camera was worth while because my old camera also had an X10 stabilized lens. The answer is YES it was. The extra mp makes a very big difference and the overall improvements over the past three years have been dramatic.
Summary: I got this camera primarily for shooting outside and it's been exactly what I expected. I've owned 35 mm Nikons and two previous Coolpix. I love the foldable screen, image stabilization and long optical zoom. I recently took some photos inside our capitol rotunda in open shade.
Summary: An excellent camera... much better than the (very good) Nikon 995 which I previously owned primarily because of the VR. The VR makes it ideal for both macro and telephoto hand held abailable light shots. I recommend at least a one gig card and an extra battery.
