Nikon Coolpix S8000

 

Is Nikon's HD long-zoom compact a bit too easy to use?

Very good image quality, Well designed, Easy to use

Basic controls, Brief menus, Average stereo separation

Nikon Coolpix S8000 camera

 

It used to be that if you wanted a non-interchangeable lens camera with a big zoom, it was the size of a brick. Not any more. Nikon's Coolpix S8000 offering marries a 10x optical zoom to a 14.2-megapixel resolution (from a 14.5MP 1/2.3-type CCD) within...

Robust mainly metal construction, top notch features including technology borrowed from its DSLRs, and 10x optical zoom range ensure the S8000's asking price appears very good value

Sluggish write times at maximum 14MP resolution, occasional operational freezes

The Nikon Coolpix S8000 looks the part for anyone wanting a pocket camera with a broader than average focal range that will therefore afford a greater wealth of photo taking opportunities, from wide angle landscapes and group portraits to intimate...

Nikon Coolpix S8000 review

 

The world's thinnest 10x zoom camera is just 3cm thick

Long lens ; Well-made ; Good screen

Imperfect image quality ; Slow to start ; Long lens makes it a bit niche

The Nikon Coolpix S8000 is a compact camera that manages to do something others don't - pack a 10x zoom into a compact chassis.

Keenly priced for a stylish camera with a fantastic LCD screen, but photographic options are limited and image quality is below average

Nikon Coolpix S8000 review

 

More-advanced photographers and learn-as-you-go shooters won't like the lack of manual controls, but people looking for a dead-simple pocket megazoom will appreciate the Nikon Coolpix S8000 camera.

Build quality and manual shortcomings aside, the Nikon Coolpix S8000 is the easiest-to-use pocket megazoom of the latest crop. It takes almost no effort from the user to capture great images, which casual snapshooters will love.

Nikon - COOLPIX S8000

 

Nikon's COOLPIX range has generally lived up to its chic, stylish image while at the same time delivering high quality images, and the current collection (of which the S8000 is the top of the range) continues ...

A quick scan of the Web reveals prices as low as £180 for Nikon's stylish 10x ultra-zoom compact, and despite a few design questions the overall handling, performance and image quality should make this a highly popular member of the COOLPIX family.

Nikon Coolpix S8000

 

A stylish and pocketable 14Mp compact digital camera sporting a 10x wide angle zoom with Vibration reduction.

Compact Size; Attractive finish and good build quality; Plenty of functions to assist picture taking; Bright three inch screen; Vibration reduction; Effective metering system

Aggressive sharpening can cause artefacts

Nikon Coolpix S8000

 

Since the introduction of the pro-level 12-megapixel D3, Nikon has had a string of successes with DSLRs reclaiming some of the top spots in reviews, but its digital compact cameras have been far less enticing. It wasn't always like that, as very early...

We could have easily accepted the Coolpix S8000's lack of features had the results been more impressive. The lens has good central sharpness, but in most other respects the picture quality is disappointing. It's good to see Nikon innovating in digital...

Nikon enters the pocket travel-zoom market

The S8000's inexplicable start-up lag, average image quality and slow Burst mode spoil what is otherwise a solid first pocket travel-zoom camera from Nikon
