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! Recommended!
Summary: I already had one of this camera but my husband wanted it as well. Its video recording capabilities are amazing for such a low price. At concerts it picks up the bands and instruments and not the screaming crowd (doesn't matter where you stand). The zoom on the camera works amazing, and photos no matter what come out clear (image when taken may look blurry but the photo looks just great.
Summary: Overall i love the camera, it's been nothing but a fantastic in all occasions and scenarios. Granted it was a little bulkier and bigger than I had originally expected I quickly overlooked that when I started taking pictures with it. It's by far one of the better point and shoots I've had my hands on. Pictures come out very clear and in focus, even in fast motion related scenarios. Construction and quality is spot on as I would expect from a Nikon.
