Nikon Coolpix S8200

 

Nikon's Coolpix S8200 is small and compact, yet packs a punch with its 14x optical zoom lens. Able to deliver a 25mm wide-angle through to 350mm telephoto there's plenty of scope to capture groups of people, landscapes, or zoom right in to pick out far...

Compact size, decent zoom range, 1080p HD movie

No manual modes, some focus issues at telephoto focal lengths

The S8200 is a solid all round compact that’s an ideal match for the point-and-shoot photographer. Its 14x zoom range is ample for most scenarios and, despite no manual controls like some of its competitors, plenty of scene and effects modes provide an...

Nikon Coolpix S8200 review

 

Quick, compact and bursting with beginner-friendly features

Useful big zoom lens ; Vibration Reduction ; Great build quality ; Responsive AF system ; Full HD movies

No GPS ; No manual exposure modes ; Occasionally overexposes bright detail ; AF less reliable at telephoto focal lengths

The latest addition to Nikon's elegant Style range of compact cameras seeks to combine form and function, marrying a chic design with a glut of high-end features; all in an easy-to-use, compact package.

Some impressive features but there's no justification for this camera to cost more than the Nikon S9100

Nikon Coolpix S8200 review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S8200 seems to be just a shrunken-down version of the 18x Coolpix S9100 , with most if not all of the same shooting features. Instead of an 18x zoom, it packs a 14x f3.3-5.9 25-350mm lens in a camera body 1.3 inches thick. It also has...

The Nikon Coolpix S8200 is easy to use, has an excellent feature set for its price, and has a lot of fun shooting options to experiment with.

The S8200's autofocus can be slow at times, its flash is poorly placed, and its photo quality isn't for everybody.

The Nikon Coolpix S8200 might not be as easy to recommend as its predecessor, the S8100, but it's still a very good compact megazoom for the money.

Nikon Coolpix S8200 Hands On Preview

 

The Nikon Coolpix S8200 is one of six brand new Coolpix series cameras debuting in September. As luck would have it, Steve's had a chance to play around with pre-release versions of all six cameras. The S8200 features a 16.1 MP CMOS backside...

Nikon Coolpix S8200

 

Stylish looks ; Bright and high-resolution LCD screen ; Good images at low sensitivities ; Excellent video quality

Images at higher sensitivities look over-processed ; Indoor white balance is rather clinical

The S8200 will easily slide into a pocket despite its 14x zoom lens, and will deliver photos that are worthy of the family album — most times.

Nikon Coolpix S8200 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S8200 is a new travel-zoom camera featuring a 14x zoom lens with a versatile focal range of 25-350mm. Measuring just 32.7mm thick, key features of the S8200 include a 16.1 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, high resolution 3 inch...

The Nikon Coolpix S8200 increases the megapixel count and the zoom to keep up to speed with the competition, although merely average image quality and a slight price increase prevents us from recommending Nikon's latest travel-zoom model more highly....

Nikon COOLPIX S8200

 

With a fast 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, 14x optical zoom, and 1080p video recording, the 8200 is a great buy. Reviews have been positive thus far, and customers like the large high-resolution LCD and snappy autofocus. Although a replacement has been...
