Nikon Coolpix S8200


$330.00 Released August, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Multi-selector function is very convenient - allows users to adjust flash, macro, exposure, self-timer and more without manually navigating through the menu each time. Camera feels "thick" and heavy in a good way - of a considerably higher build quality than prior Coolpix cameras. Shutter speed is remarkably fast for a compact digital camera - rivals some lower-priced SLRs in response time.

The Cons:Flash component is awkwardly placed - very difficult to comfortably hold the camera without partially obstructing this area. Auto-focus struggles considerably in low-light environments - may cause frustration amongst users hoping to capture quick candid shots indoors. Pop-up flash cannot be pushed down manually - camera must be powered down each time the user wishes to retract this component.

A backlit CMOS image sensor is included to provide advanced processing for optimal results in day or night applications, working alongside a lens-shift VR image stabilizer to minimize mis-shots caused by shaky hands or moving subjects. Nikon's revamped autofocus technology works to detect a given subject and apply the appropriate sharpness and zoom controls without affecting additional objects that may fall within the field of view, putting emphasis on a specific area for increased boldness and clarity. Full 1080p video recording is also offered, with a set of in-line stereo speakers enabling automatic playback directly from the S8200. Additional content can be ported in or out of the unit via HDMI connectivity, making it easy to view recently-captured content on a large-screen television or computer interface. A host of "Special" and "Filter" effects are available for achieving striking visual properties before or after content is captured, with "Smile Timer" technology allowing users to capture natural, candid shots the first time around.
