  • 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
20 January 2013
  • 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. Pictures are of high quality, but the interface is not well designed.

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.

  • Summary: This camera takes nice pictures. However, it takes way too long to actually take the picture. I have missed so many great shots of my daughter because this camera takes so long to focus and take the picture. Plus, on the first shot, the flash pops up...right where you would normally hold your left finger. I got used to it, but my husband messes it up every time. Plus, that first shot takes even longer while you wait for the flash to pop up.

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. 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 ...

Nothing Special

  • 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. –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.

Nikon S8100 vs Canon SX210 performance comparison

lindguini, Amazon
15 April 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).
