"Lens error after 1 year"

gatorgirl50, CNET
19 June 2012
  • Pros: Large screen, easy to use, loved the video, and the camera is small.
  • Cons: After about a year, I kept getting a 'lens error' message. Horrible to have happen in the middle of a trip to Spain. Took out battery and replaced--didn't help. Lens kept going in and out. Couldn't turn off. Lens cover made of cheap plastic.

pvreditor, epinions.com
8 August 2011
  • Summary: The specs for the Nikon S8100 look great but the camera's overall performance is disappointing. In particular, video from the S8100 is mostly not usable.
  • Pros: Compact; good flash, nice LCD display, useful manual controls
  • Cons: Occasional soft focus in photos; lots of focus hunting with video; modest battery life

User Review

Starlightspringer, DP Review
10 April 2011
  • Excerpt: I'm a semi pro photographer, but I needed a pocket camera to carry with me. After doing a lot of research, I decided on this model. I have not been impressed. First the top mounted flash is too far to the left and leaves little room for your left hand to hold the camera. Second the flash firmware isn't very good and it tends to blow out exposures on subject at close range. It is not nearly as good in low light as advertised. The high speed setting is pretty much a joke.

"Poor photos, nice video"

rrgghh7711, CNET
20 November 2010
  • Pros: the 1080p video looked nice.
  • Cons: I was not pleased with the quality of the photos. The photos looked much worse than on my old, cheap canon sd1100 which i'm still using. Read more: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-20015776-1.html#ixzz15qT7POZq

2013: Die S8100 hat in der Bildqualität ihre Meister gefunden

M. Rohde "Alhäuser", Amazon
10 October 2013
  • Summary: Diese Rezension entsteht im Oktober 2013. Ich muss feststellen, dass die Qualitäten der S8100, die nun schon 2,5 Jahre im Handel ist, immer noch gelten - mit Ausnahme der Fotoqualität. Da bieten etliche neuere Modelle in der Preisklasse der S8100 einfach besseres. Das gilt nicht generell für ältere Modelle von Digitalkameras, aber in diesem Fall ist es wirklich so.
