Product Shot 1 The Pros:Records video in 720p high definition with stereo sound. Wide-angle 10x optical zoom. Large high resolution 3" display (921k pixel).

The Cons:Misleading claims of fast start-up, takes at least 4 seconds. Not compatible with the latest SDXC standard. 3FPS continuous shooting requires reduction of image resolution to 3MP - full resolution continuous shooting is sub-par.

The Nikon Coolpix S8000 is part of the new line of S series digital cameras that will be released in March 2010 along with the Coolpix S6000, both of which are labeled as the thinnest in their respective classes.

Sunita Chourasia: #nikon_coolpix_s8000 Nikon Coolpix has an aesthetic design that makes them the thinnest in their class. They offer quick response that captures flying moments, for high sensitivities and a number of functions that reduce noise for blur compensation that results in fantastic and sharp images.. http://www.gizmos360.com/nikon-coolpix-s8000-review.html Oct 2, 10
