... this camera 2 years ago and have been a happy camper ever since
8 September 2014
Summary: I purchased this camera 2 years ago and have been a happy camper ever since. It is small, yet very powerful. Takes amazing pictures in any light; battery last forever. My favorite thing about this camera is its zoom. 14X description does not do the justice, you gotta see it to believe it. I cannot tell you how many concerts I have been to with this baby and have taken pictures all the way from the lawn that looked like I was 10 feet away from the stage.
Summary: I love this camera. It's a bit bulky but it is worth it because the photos and videos are GREAT quality. I have dropped it and it's pretty sturdy. I've owned it for a long time and it is still just as great as when I first used it.
One year later and still loving it. Better than the s9300!

Summary: I've had this camera for a year now with absolutely no problems. I use it about once a week with a Class 10 SDHC Extreme card. At the time of purchase I compared it to the higher model, the 9300 and actually got consistently better shots with this camera!!!
Summary: My last Nikon COOLPIXx3100 was great but had to be replaced due to a fall. I bought the S8200 and absolutely love it. The pictures have great definition and it's so easy to use. It's a winner in my book!
This camera takes beautiful photos and nice video.

Summary: The camera takes beautiful photos and has intuitive controls. The single button for video is very convenient. One issue is that the flash pops up in low light. You cannot put it down unless you power down. The body is a little large, but reasonable. Overall it is a great camera.
Summary: I got this to replace my last gen model of this same camera because it got ruined by water. So far I've had this for about a year and it is still working like new! pictures are extremely clear with this camera and the zoom is amazing! You can honestly zoom in on the smallest of things!
