Nikon CoolPix 8800

 

With superb image quality and a 10x optical zoom, Nikon's CoolPix 8800 will make you think twice about buying that entry-level SLR.

The CoolPix 8800 is an awesome camera for any enthusiast with deep enough pockets. Thanks to the big sensor and superb Nikkor ED lens its image quality is among the best available, while the exceptionally versatile exposure and AF systems provide...

Nikon Coolpix 8800

 

Nikon seems determined to cover all their bases with innovations and models different enough to keep both consumer and professional interested. Their last major release was the D70, a universally well received sub-£1000 SLR system. Now, the Coolpix...

Vibration reduction, long zoom lens

Menus could be improved, speed of shutter release, light balance in winter light

The menus are a little messy and need to be worked through to discover important functions. It should be noted that a number of core features are located in the ‘set-up' menu, which is located off the main control dial rather than the menu button of...

Nikon's 8MP 10x zoom looks like it should be at the top of t

Nikon Coolpix 8800 - digital camera review

 

Intro Vibration reduction headlines the feature set for this 8-megapixel Coolpix 8700 replacement, which also includes a longer zoom lens (10X vs. 8X), support for Nikon's i-TTL SB600 and SB800 external flash units, improved design, and a...

10X zoom lens; effective vibration reduction; excellent red-eye prevention; ultrahigh-speed 30fps burst mode.

Spotty image quality; viewfinder freezes and blanks under certain circumstances.

An 8-megapixel megazoom with image stabilization, the 8800 is a solid, though not spectacular, enthusiast option.

The CoolPix 8800 may look like a pretty similar successor to the 8MP 8700 model, but the styling similarities are deceptive because this is quite a different camera

Review: Nikon CoolPix 8800 Digital Camera

 

Don Bradbury gives his view of the latest Prosumer model from Nikon.

Overall, the Nikon Coolpix 8800 is a very good digital camera. It has its faults, as do most models, but most users will be pleased with the results. It's just a case of 'do I up the stakes a little more and go for a DSLR' (Digital Single Lens Reflex)...

The 8800 offers fantastic value for money and, although less flexible than a digital SLR, packs in an impressive array of features. Images are crisp and sharp throughout the focal range and the reliable Matrix metering ensures consistently accurate...
