  • Excerpt: Not bad in good light.  In low light, not very good. Weak flash. Slow. Soon to be replaced with a V series to serve her needs and mine as a backup to DSLR

Worked great until the telescoping lens broke.

Jesse Paine, Amazon

  • Summary: Worked great until the telescoping lens broke. The camera turns on easily and was turned on my pocket several times. It doesn't have a pressure release, so it broke in my pocket. However, I am still able to manual telescope the lens.

Newly acquired

  • Summary: Just recently purchased this camera and was excited about using it but had problems with this at my daughters wedding. Sometimes the camera would be able to show me my existing pictures and other times it would not. Too early to fully rate this camera yet but a little dissatisfied.

Disappointing.

Julian Velasco, Amazon
2 June 2011
  • Summary: I have had MANY cameras over the past few years, from point & shoots to DSLRs. Therefore, I feel like I can make fair comparisons. This camera is not horrible. In many respects, it's pretty good. But it is very disappointing compared to the competition. And therefore, I cannot recommend it.

Nothing Special

BDC, Amazon
6 May 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera because it was supposed to be fast and take good low light pictures. It failed at both! I went back to the Cannon SX130IS which is a much better camera.

  • Excerpt: Full disclosure, I didn't concern myself with testing any video capabilities of the S8100, so I can't speak to those features of this camera. Pros: –Tactile, matte black, rubberized front of camera is very convenient and stylish, if you ask me. –LCD is bright & very detailed.

Pleased with the camera, until it broke.

John "John", Amazon

  • Summary: I have several DSLR cameras and have used this as a convenient backup. It is light and easily fits in a shirt pocket, I have large hands and this one is very easy to hold. I can't say the same for other small cameras I've used.

Nikon S8100 vs Canon SX210 performance comparison

lindguini, Amazon
8 January 2011
  • Summary: UPDATED 1/14/11: I was hoping to find a still/video camera that would give me the low light performance of my Fuji F20 and also allow me to avoid hauling around a separate HD camcorder.

Crisp Image but Kinda Big and Bulky

Kat, Amazon
21 October 2010
  • Summary: I know we've come a long way in terms of camera size, but this one still feels kinda big too me. It's definitely not something I could squeeze into my pocket, it's not smartphone sized at all. And compared with my old Coolpix 7600, its about the same weight, and not a whole lot thinner.
