Features

The Nikon CoolPix S8000 is a 14.2 effective megapixels for high-resolution images powered by a 10x zoom NIKKOR lens. The camera features a 3.0 inch 921k-dot TFT LCD that allows users to compose their shots as well as share or preview them with friends and family. The camera also features Scene Auto Selector which provides quick picture-taking in a variety of situations, creative slider that allows users to adjust brightness, vividness and hue of images in-camera; and a design with a curve around the lens and rubber coating on the grip for a firm and steady hold.
