Nikon Coolpix S8100 review

 

The 12.1Mp S8100 is a good looking compact camera with a back-lit CMOS sensor that should keep image noise down

Good quality images ; Small and light ; Good build quality ; Fast start-up time

Lack of manual controls ; Lack of speed with moving subjects

Nikon Coolpix S8100 review

 

The Coolpix S8100 compact megazoom is Nikon's follow-up to the Coolpix S8000 . That camera didn't offer much more than what you could get from other manufacturers--if anything--and produced average photos and had average shooting performance. Its...

Excellent shooting performance; great LCD; stereo mic; 10x zoom in an attractive compact body.

Soft photos on either side of ISO 200; white balance is a little off; no manual or semimanual shooting modes.

With fast performance, good photos, and an excellent feature-to-price ratio, the Nikon Coolpix S8100 is a compact megazoom worth considering.

The compact Nikon Coolpix S8100 Digital Camera is put to the test to find out how the pocket zoom performs.

Excellent Macro Mode; Good photo quality and colour; 5fps Shooting / High Speed Shots / Video (upto 240fps); Full HD Video with optical zoom and stereo sound; Built in vibration reduction; High quality 3in screen

Does not stitch photos in-camera

A 12.1 megapixel compact camera that can shoot up to five images in one second through a 10x zoom lens, the Nikon Coolpix S8100 promises razor-sharp results.

Nikon Coolpix S8100

 

Excellent LCD screen ; Good low-light images ; A staggering amount of shooting options to choose from

Average HD video quality ; Some digital noise at full magnification ; Burst shooting buffer not as fast as others

Offering a whole heap of shooting modes and generally good image quality, the S8100 is a tempting proposition for those looking for a 10x optical zoom compact.

Nikon Coolpix S8100 Review

 

The Coolpix S8100 is Nikon's second travel-zoom camera, featuring a 10x zoom lens with a versatile focal range of 30-300mm. Measuring just 29.9mm thick, key features of the S8100 include a 12 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, high resolution 3...

The Nikon Coolpix S8100 is an appealingly simple-to-use yet powerful travel zoom camera that is a marked improvement on the original S8000 in many ways, but its 30mm lens and average image quality prevent us from recommending it more highly. Nikon are...
