Puts others to shame!

by Jaime on 8/1/2011

I won't be considering the other brands of digital cameras I had used in the past when & if it comes time to replace this Nikon CoolPix S8000. Some digital cameras are great at Macro (close-up) photography but may lack clarity when taking a Landscape shot (& visa-versa). This one does all types of photography well! I regret not getting this camera sooner! The clarity of the pictures - even on the "lower" settings, is incomparable. Regarding the ease of use - well I referred to the manual a few times at first but for the most part the settings are intuitive. Interfacing it with a PC is a "snap" as is sharing pictures & movies with others. "Sports" shots - those involving your subject's fast movements - come out GREAT! The movies look better too due to the anti-vibration lense and software. Now they are much easier to watch. I'm not an expert photographer but the Nikon CoolPix S8000 lets me take pictures like one! I'm completely happy with my purchase. Read More

The vibrant 3.0-inch 920k-dot VGA display offers four times the clarity and detail of standard cameras for amazing image reproduction.

Simple, Mobile, Essence of Easy Living Four advanced image stabilization features ensure sharper results
The Coolpix S8000's high ISO 1600 capability allows shooting at faster shutter speeds, yielding great results even when shooting in low light or when capturing fast-moving subjects. Motion Detection assists in achieving sharper results by automatically controlling the shutter speed and ISO setting to compensate for subject movement as well as camera shake. New advanced flash control enables natural and beautiful flash photos even when subjects are backlit or when shooting telephoto by enhancing ISO sensitivity, rather than opting for slower shutter speeds.

Simple, Mobile, Essence of Easy Living Nikon's Smart Portrait System with Skin Softening
As part of Nikon's Smart Portrait System, a series of advanced functions help produce consistently great portraits. The Skin Softening function ensures smooth skin tone on the face of subjects by leveraging built-in face-detection technology. Automatically detecting as many as 12 faces in the shot, Face-priority AF helps produce satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure. Smile Timer helps to faithfully record precious moments by automatically releasing the shutter when the subject smiles. Blink Warning alerts the photographer when it suspects that a subject has blinked, while the Blink Proof function shoots five sequential frames, then saves the one in which the subject's eyes are wide open. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.

Creative Slider
The Coolpix S8000 is equipped with the Creative Slider, a fun new way to apply a rich variety of effects when shooting in Auto Mode. Adjust brightness, saturation and color tone using the Rotary Multi Selector. Adjustments can be previewed in real-time on the Coolpix S8000's 3-inch LCD monitor.
