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. The specs are actually quite simple with modes for portraits, landscape scenery, and so on. This camera has a 3 inch screen, but the really surprising part is the HDMI output.
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.
"Worked well in its 22 months of life-but not perfect."

Pros: Easy to use and light and when working right, clear pictures. Fast on and easy picture transfer
Cons: Several problems. A lens problem which resulted on a large spot like a thumbprint. Auto focus became inconsistent. USB connector unique size hard to find. When I had to send in for warranty repairs, was slow. And first time I dropped it, it died
Summary: I bought this to upgrade from a digital camera I bought several years ago. I got it just in time for my visit with family on Thanksgiving. I am very pleased with the quality of the pictures it takes. I did read other reviews before purchasing. The location of the flash has not been an issue for me so far I just hold the camera in a way that my finger doesn't cover it.
Summary: the pictures are sharp and i like using this camera with all it's settings. i do however need to always remember where the flash pops up from. It's placement (top left hand corner) is where most would automatically hold a small camera and the shot is usually wasted if you forget.
Excerpt: I wanted a 'simple, light, unexpensive, jack-of-all-trades' camera for casual shooting, and not worrying too much about damages or theft. From the first shots, I was amazed by the results - consistent high quality. this Nikon has all it takes to take good photos in program mode. The results are sharp, well exposed, with good colors. I didn't find any weaknesses.
