Summary: The only place I could find this camera was on Amazon. Wanted RED, who doesn't??? Found it here and love, love, love this camera. Love Nikon! Convenient, easy to carry, good photos. Works for a basic need.
Excerpt: I purchased this camera last week because I am going to be living in London from Jan. to June and I plan to travel Europe while I am there. This camera was not my first choice(a Canon) however after looking at several different cameras at 5 different stores I decided to go with this one. The pictures are great and the cameras battery life is better than expected(my old sony used AA which lasted maybe 30 pictures) in fact the battery lasted more than 3 hours.
Nikon S8100 Camera makes taking pictures SUPER FUN again! A+++++
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I got to pick out my birthday present this year and I thought to myself "I am so sick and tired of missing all the really good shots because my crappy camera is too slow, horrible in low light and can't take a macro pic to save its own life". So off we went! My husband is much more camera litterate than I am, I just know a good picture when I see one and when I take one!
Excerpt: I received this camera from myself just this last weekend as an early birthday present from a husband who hasn't had the time away from work (we live in a ridiculously small town) to do the shopping himself. I'd done a lot of research on cameras. I wanted something small enough for my purse, with a decent zoom. This camera is the best out there for those two qualities! In fact, it has the best zoom for it's size on the market! I had to have it!
Excerpt: After researching compact digital cameras that did not cost an arm and a leg and produced an excellent picture fast, I chose the Nikon S8100. It had all the features I was looking for-fast shutter speed, video recording, stabilization, ability to edit immediately and good range. The screen is a little smaller than I would like, but that is just a very minor concern.
Excerpt: I will be the first to admit I am NOT a camera gooru. I wanted a camera that would take quick pictures and capture everything, even a blink. This camera has met my expectations and then some. I just wish I had a tutorial that showed me exactly how to use each and every setting on the camera. The manual does show some examples. Maybe I just need to take a class on the camera.
Excerpt: I purchased a Nikon S8100 on Cyber Monday of last year and fell in love. I first tried it out at Walmart while killing some time. I was in the market for a camera, but only wanted to spend $150 maximum. I picked up this camera and immediately it felt didn't then anything I've used before. There was a sturdy feel about the camera, so curious I tried to take some photos. I was amazed at the shutter speed and the picture quality.
