Coolpix S8200 Poor Quality Photo's

By

from Detroit, Michigan  -  Photography Student

I bought this camera because I wanted something that I could stick in my pocket and use for casual photos. I was impressed by the optical zoom capabilities. After using it 6 or 8 times I am still unable to get very many quality photos out of it. Typically after downloading the photos, they end up in the trash.

Nice little camera

By

from Rome, Ga  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this camera for my wife for an upcoming vacation. So far with minimal testing, I'm mostly happy with it. As a Canon user, it was hard to buy a Nikon, but this was the best bang for the buck and HUGE upgrade over the 5 year old Sony point and shoot that my was had been using. Pro's: - 16.1 MP - Full size SD card - Incredible battery life - Easy to use interface - Large screen - 14x zoom - Great features - Has a nice weight for a point and shoot Cons: - USB connection for charging and data transfer is not the standard micro-USB - Battery charges while in the camera. Kind of inconvenient for charging a 2nd battery. - Plastic cover over charging access feels flimsy. - Battery and SD card cover door pops open with the push of a button. When closing, you actually have to lock the door back into place as it does not snap shut just by closing it. I can see this popping open and breaking off in a pocket/purse.
