- Instruction Manual
The Coolpix 8800 is an incredible photography tool for serious photographers. The Coolpix 8800 is the most powerful compact digital camera available to consumers, boasting a high-powered 10x optical Zoom-Nikkor ED glass lens, which opens the shooter to an unmatched 35-350mm (35mm equivalent) zoom range, the longest zoom range available in the 8-megapixel category, and delivers razor sharp images.
To complement this versatile and precise lens, Nikon has incorporated its Vibration Reduction (VR) System a version of the system used in Nikkor professional SLR lenses into the Coolpix 8800.
The benefits of VR are further evident with the Coolpix 8800 digital camera system, when enhanced with a series of dedicated lens accessories that broaden the range of lens performance from Fisheye (7mm) to a 600mm telephoto. The incorporation of VR into the Coolpix 8800 represents a milestone first for Nikon and the Coolpix series as state of the art technology is now being applied to consumer compact cameras.
The Nikon Coolpix 8800 is the ideal camera for serious photographers who consider the lens a critical factor in their regular shooting. The camera will also satisfy photographers that demand the highest level of quality and control from their compact digital camera. The camera incorporates new features to help produce outstanding images straight out of the camera.
The Coolpix 8800,is the first digital cameras to offer Nikon's D-lighting option. In Playback, D-lighting compensates for an underexposed area of an image while maintaining the properly exposed area of the same image. The result resembles a "digital fill flash" and salvages dark silhouettes into well-balanced album-worthy memories. Another new feature, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix(TM), automatically corrects red-eye inside the camera in most instances when using the Red-Eye Reduction mode of the built-in flash.
With In-Camera Red-Eye Fix(TM) activated, photographers will see most common red-eye photos rapidly diminishing or disappearing entirely from their pictures. In fact, they may never see red-eye again. The combination of these new features alone addresses two of the most commonly experienced problems in photography and corrects them with ease.
The Nikon Coolpix 8800 digital camera incorporates four exposure modes to give the photographer ultimate creative control over their image capture. These modes include Programmed Auto [P], Shutter-Priority Auto [S], Aperture- Priority Auto [A] and Manual [M].
The camera also offers an automatic mode, which makes the Coolpix 8800 an ideal tool in situations where operation needs to be 'point-and-shoot simple.' For added convenience, the camera incorporates 15 preset Scene Modes that allow for striking images in practically any shooting situation. The camera has the ability to capture images in RAW recording mode (NEF format) for maximum image control and manipulation after the picture is taken.
