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

  • 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. On many of the basics, it's quite solid. Image quality is good. Ergonomics are good (if you don't mind the pop-up flash). And it's reasonably quick and responsive. But ...

Great Still photos & features, poor focusing in video & zoom noise

Saibal, Amazon

  • Summary: UPDATE: I have returned the camera today after observing two issues that are dealbreaker for me. We finally had a bright sunny day today and I took some videos to compare against my 3 year old Canon Powershot TX1 that shoots 720p. I also received my mini-HDMI cable so I could watch the video on my 42" LCD TV directly without post-processing thru Apple TV box.

Nikon S8100 vs Canon SX210 performance comparison

lindguini, Amazon
15 May 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. My comparisons show that the low light photos from the S8100 handily out perform my Fuji F20 and by a good margin (which is no small feat considering that the 6MP Fuji F20/F30/F40 pretty much set the standard for low light performance in point-and-shoots).

  • 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. –Macro shots are fantastic. –Zoom is very capable, if not as large as some others models in this category. –Response time is fast. –Setting selection wheel moved firmly, snapping well into place.

Pleased with the camera, until it broke.

  • 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. Although the image quality is not as good as a DSLR, I've been very pleased with the images this takes. Almost any point and shoot can take decent images nowadays.

Nikon S8100 Has Good Features and HD Recording But Also Quality Issues

truegenius, epinions.com
13 December 2010
  • Summary: The S8100 is a good camera with HD recording and high-resolution photos. But its recent lens defect makes getting an extended warranty an option to consider.
  • Pros: Small size, good feel in the hands, HD video recording, large LCD, easy Record button.
  • Cons: Lens defect may cause it to get stuck, pop-up flash gets in way.

é boa, mas por esse mil reais??

diogo, Bondfaro

  • Summary: não sei nada de fotografia, mas a impressão que eu tenho é de que ela tira fotos bem rapidamente. e para mim o display parece ter uma qualidade mto boa. eu gosto do disco (coroa metálica em volta do botão "OK") que gira para vc poder navegar pelas fotos e ver o filme quadro a quadro.
  • Pros: filma em full HD (mas lembre-se que é uma máquina fotográfica, não uma filmadora!)
  • Cons: a posição do flash não é muito boa, ele fica na posição onde vc naturalmente vai por o dedo indicador para segurar a câmera e vc acaba impedindo que o slot do flash se abra... não sei se vale mil reais...
