Nikon Coolpix 8700 - digital camera review

 

Nikon Coolpix 8700 - digital camera

Excellent, highly detailed images; impressive 8X ED-Nikkor zoom lens; sturdy magnesium-alloy body; RAW-file capture.

Easy to accidentally activate some controls; long RAW shot-to-shot time; slow low-light AF; no live histogram in manual mode; 30-second limit on video clips; full RAW-file editing software costs $99 extra.

It shoots good photos, but mediocre performance and a serious design flaw may keep this 8-megapixel camera out of the hands of enthusiasts.

Nikon Coolpix 8700

 

Review of Nikon Coolpix 8700. This is a compact digital camera with a wide range of advanced features. This includes manual exposure controls. Therefore this camera is likely to appeal to someone who takes photography seriously.

"There is a lot to get to grips with, but it is well worth the effort. Packed with features and takes great pictures. One for the enthusiasts."

Nikon Coolpix 8700

 

The new Nikon Coolpix 8700 is one of several eight megapixel digital cameras recently introduced. As apparent from the similar model number it is based heavily on its predecessor, the Coolpix 5700 which we reviewed around a year ago.

Well-built body which handles well; Flexible LCD and good Electronic Viewfinder; Good low-light focussing; Generally good image quality; Fast operational speed; Good battery-life; Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 is included

Manual focussing lacks the fine control of rivals

CoolPix 8700

 

While the CoolPix 8700 is undoubtedly a good all-rounder with impressive resolution, it's overshadowed a bit by some of its competitors. Its image quality is perfectly adequate, but it never seems pin-sharp despite all those pixels. Sony's 8mp...
