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.

More Like A Real Camera

  • Summary: I finally found the solution to the problems created by pocket-size cameras I can't use because they look the same on the front, back, top and bottom. The Nikon Coolpix brings the feel of a real camera back in my hands. Now, with the Coolpix, I can grab it and know which end to point at my sub just.

Great camera!

  • Summary: I love this camera! It takes amazing clear pictures and is great for begining photographers! It's so complex, if you want to take even better pictures and use all the options that this camera comes equiped with you'll need to have the manual. For a point-and-shoot camera, leave it on auto, or for a pro you can also have it on full manual mode. If you're in between there's modes for that.

Exceptional and durable, too

David P. Shaw, Amazon
28 April 2007
  • 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. I've used it so much, I actually wore out one battery pack and had to replace it. Still, three years later the camera is functioning perfectly, just the way it did in the summer of 2004 when I bought it. This camera has been very reliable.

Great camera for the photo hobbyist!!

  • Summary: Again, I too will try not to duplicate the efforts of other reviews. I am not a pro, but I am a pretty advanced user, and this at least my 6th digital camera (I used to work in the industry so it was easy to get them; I didn't have a whole bunch break on me). I bought it because I wanted a great camera for hobby shooting but didn't want to have to deal with separate lenses.

A Great Prosumer Camera

James N. Finch, Amazon
24 April 2006
  • Summary: I won't repeat all the stuff in the other reviews. Let me just say that I bought this camera to replace the D100, a fine Nikon DSLR. I was tired of the "lens fever" that is never ending. Also, the bulk and weight of all the equipment was tiring. The 8800 has some lag, just like all non-slr cameras. But, I've learned to live with it. I just pace myself. The continuous shooting modes give you ample opportunity to shoot action sports. The quality of the pictures is awesome.

Image quality superb

One Happy Retiree, Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned the 5700, then the 8700, and now the 8800. I've also owned a half-dozen high-level 35 mm film cameras over the years, beginning with the Nikon S2 in the 1950s ^|^. The 8800 is a fine upgrade and the 10X zoom and VR is FABULOUS! I do a lot of macro work, and tripods are not really always necessary these new days.
