Summary: I have always had Nikon cameras. I have never had one that broke on me until this one. I had it for less than 2 years and the shutter broke. I couldn't turn my camera on all of a sudden. Very disappointed. The photos were great.
Summary: I really liked this camera when I first received it. However, within about 4 mos, I noticed some kind of powdery looking effect on the lower corner of the lcd screen when it is off. It didn't seem to affect the photos, and I was too busy to deal with warranty at that time. The powdery effect has spread a bit now, and I have no idea what it is. At first, I was impressed with being able to take a large number of photos on one charge.
Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix S8200 is actually a very nice camera. I actually did not see a lot of this type around. I haven’t seen a lot of 16 megapixel cameras with a 14 times zoom so I would say that this camera is pretty unique in its own ways.
Summary: I've always liked the Nikon for his sharp pictures, this camera has everything you will ever need. It's compact and easy to use. It's big screen allows you to capture your pictures and every detail that you want to compose within your pictures.
Summary: Not happy with this purchase, We have gotten these many times from Best Buy and have had really good luck. These are used for investigations outside in our business. These three seem like refurbished ones. Not new. One has lense issues and the other doesn't hold a charge. I have given the 3rd one out to replace one and we shall see how it works out.
Summary: I wish I could give a lower rating. This camera worked fine for a few months, but the camera broke out of nowhere! I've charged the camera up and it will not turn on. I am not the only one with this issue, and unfortunately I failed to notice. Boo to this camera.
Summary: Purchased 2 cameras for youth to use in a photography class. Took good pictures for a point and shoot, battery life is adequate. Flash is a little harsh but similar to point and shoots. Takes great picks when flash not needed.
Summary: *PLEASE READ BEFORE BUYING THIS CAMERA* Let me start this off by saying, this camera took great pictures and has AMAZING zoom/picture quality. It's easy to use and has a lot of cool features, and great quality HD video too. That being said, the low star review is due to the camera just stopped working suddenly and would not come back on. I work in IT for a living, so I troubleshoot technology on a daily basis.
