  • Summary: The bottom line For beginner photographers looking for a long-zoom camera in a super-compact package, the Nikon Coolpix S8200 fills the bill.

  • Pros: Compact and portable, Fast autofocus, Full HD video, Easy to use
  • Cons: Grainy images, No manual shooting modes

Nikon Coolpix S8200 Review

Digital Photography School
22 December 2011
  • Excerpt: ]This camera seems to tick quite a few boxes: the CMOS sensor captures an effective 16.1 million pixels; the Nikkor lens has a 14x range, equating to 25-350mm in a 35 SLR lens; it’s very compact and pocketable, at only 33mm depth with lens withdrawn. The maximum image size is 4608×3456 pixels or, 39x29cm as a print. Movies can be shot at Full HD res of 1920×1080.
  • Pros: you want it in black or red; you’ve fallen in love with its high speed continuous specs.

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S8200 is a fully automatic point-and-shoot travel-zoom with a stabilized 14X ultra-wide optical zoom lens and 16 megapixels high-speed CMOS sensor.

  • Conclusion: With an equivalent focal range of 25-350mm (on a 35mm camera), the Nikon Coolpix S8200 is ideally suited to photographers who like to shoot anything and everything, with its relatively compact dimensions making it a tempting option for avid globetrotters in need of a lightweight travel-friendly alternative to a bulkier camera system.

Nikon Coolpix S8200 review

  • Summary: The Coolpix S8200 is a successful compact with a rangey zoom, though the lack of manual controls and Raw shooting make it a proposition for the more point-and-shoot minded shooter. We're fond of the Vibration Reduction optical image stabilisation system and the back-lit sensor makes for good images quality.

  • Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix S8200 is almost identical to the S8100 model that it replaces, so a lot of the comments that we made about that camera apply equally to this latest release. The Nikon Coolpix S8200 has a rather conservative yet still appealing design, with the metal body finished in a glossy black coating that's helpfully rubberised on the front half, aiding your grip on the camera.

  • Pros: Stylish looks, Bright and high-resolution LCD screen, Good images at low sensitivities, Excellent video quality
  • Cons: Images at higher sensitivities look over-processed, Indoor white balance is rather clinical

  • Excerpt: Nikon’s Coolpix S8200 is small and compact, yet packs a punch with its 14x optical zoom lens. Able to deliver a 25mm wide-angle through to 350mm telephoto there’s plenty of scope to capture groups of people, landscapes, or zoom right in to pick out far away action.
  • Pros: Compact size, decent zoom range, 1080p HD movie
  • Cons: No manual modes, some focus issues at telephoto focal lengths
