Summary: After extensive reviews research, I purchased what I thought would be the ideal camera for me. It worked well in the beginning, but after the one-year warranty (of course) it began to have issues. The menu button worked only occasionally.
Summary: This camera seemed like a good purchase until the lens cover stopped opening/closing and the camera was inoperable. I got it fixed - covered by warranty as it was only 6 months old. It worked for about 2 outings and then the same thing happened.
Summary: I have read all the reviews of cameras in this category on Amazon and others like CNET and Digital Photography review to name a couple. I even tried many at the stores. Previously I owned a Canon, and I liked it, but thought I'd look at the competition.
Excerpt: I recently bought the S8200 and wanted to share some first impressions. So far, I only took pictures on dim winter days and indoor, thus I cannot give a substantiated assessment of image quality.
Summary: I purchased the S8200 as a Christmas gift to myself intending to use it during the Christmas holidays. I found the picture quality, ease of operation, video quality and sound quality all to be very satisfactory for a simple point and shoot camera at that price point.
Summary: The picture qualities were ok but I did not like the design, the feel, the size and the sound it made when the button was pressed. I returned the item. The service of Amazon was great and I received the refund very quickly without any problems at all. Thank you.
Summary: I purchased this camera with a view to giving it to my Fiancee. It is a bit weighty and not as slim as most models but still had great picture quality and was relatively easy to use (for the one day I had it).
Excerpt: I own two other Nikons, a D300 and a D40 and the point of this purchase was to replace our now dead casio pocket camera. I wanted a good zoom, it had to be small, with reasonable video and good picture quality. Ideally good in poor light too.
Pros: Small, great stabilized zoom, solid
Cons: Grainy pictures, video docus, on button difficult, no photo orientation data
Excerpt: Первая поломка заключалось в том что объектив застрял наполовину высунутый.После ремонта стал плохо фокусироваться,опять поездка в СЦ.там что то отрегулировали,вроде стало получше.Потом заметил что не работает стабилизатор,опять поездка в СЦ.
Pros: неплохие фотки при плохом освещении
Cons: Уровень зарядки как тут было написано имеет два состояния.Заряжен полностью и "выключусь через 5-10 снимков".Разницу между качеством фото сделаным на этом фотоаппарате и купленном несколько лет назад и гораздо дешевле не заметил Часто ломается об этом чуть ниже
Summary: Wollte diese Kamera für meinen Neuseelandaufenthalt. Habe sie mir 2 mal von Amazon schicken lassen, immer diesselben kleinen Spots auf den Aufnahmen, vor allem bei Bildern mit Blitz war es extrem!
