4 out of 5 eggsCoolpix S8200

Pros: 16.1 MP, HDMI out, Solid design, nice weight for such a small device. Screen is clear and shutter speed is responsive with a Class 1 SDHC Card.

Cons: Currently at an APO, shipping took over a week to recieve. Which isn't bad just.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't Copy and Paste

Pros: You shouldn't be copying and pasting this much data. Try to drag and drop instead. Your computer doesn't have enough memory to store all of the photos/videos for a Copy/Paste. Don't blame the camera when the problem is the user.

Cons: User Error

2 out of 5 eggsNice camera when it works

Pros: I am not a camera expert, but my pros are similar to most others. The camera took nice, quick pictures for the short time I got to use it.

Cons: The flash location is extremely annoying. Camera slowly died over a few weeks. The lens will power on, but the LCD is black. Over a few weeks the color on the LCD showed incorrect pictures like half purple and half normal picture. Eventually it stopped working after only owning the camera for approximately 2 months and on the first day of a vacation. Nikon support was poor at best. They scrutinized the camera to find any blemish and labeled it as an "impact" spot so that it wasn't covered under warranty. I can guarantee that there was no impact that caused the failure. So, anyway, I now have a $300 brick camera. I personally will not be using Nikon again. For you Nikon fans, I would at least avoid this model.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat camera, but...

Pros: This point-and-shoot camera takes great pictures and HD 1080 video.

Cons: I am unable to copy files off the camera. Windows 7 64 bit, connect via USB, camera shows up as S8200 device, navigate to the pictures and videos, right click Copy, then navigate to HDD and Paste, the camera power light blinks off-on, the copy aborts. I can transfer pictures using the horrible Nikon View NX2 application, so it seems to be a Nikon memory driver bug. It is a big deal because I need Autoplay enabled to sync with Dropbox and that aborts due to the Windows file copy problem. I would give the camera 4 stars if it worked. The fifth star is not there because the battery has to be in the camera to charge, a separate charger is not provided. Dropped off one point due to not being able to copy files.

Other Thoughts: Sent a support email into Nikon to see if they acknowledge the buggy memory driver and if they intend to fix it.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid PAS Camera

Pros: This is my first camera, I wanted something to take with me on the go, I've taken it out a few times now and put it through it's paces, it shoots very high quality images in low light settings outdoors such as sunsets and I even took a picture of the moon and that came out better than expected.

The 14x optical zoom lets you get very close up, it's kind of funny that it's such a small camera but it has such a big zoom. I have used my mothers SLR Nikon and this one works the same as hers, you hold down the shoot button and the camera focuses and then a green box appears on the target and you depress the button down to take the picture.

This camera focuses very very fast, less than a second most shots.

There are settings in the menu you can change like the ISO, megapixel resolution, the camera has several modes to choose from. I ususally just shoot in AUTO, I find the camera is better at picking the best settings for the picture than I am so I leave that stuff alone

Cons: I just wanted to share some insight on the popup flash. Some other reviews have noted the flash is very annoying on this camera because it pops up right where your left index finger is usually holding the camera. I found a simple workaround for this: Disable the flash!

For shots that you must use the flash, take a practice shot first to deploy the flash and then hold the camera theres still enough room on the back of the flash to get a good grip.

I would have preferred not having to plug the camera into the charger with the usb cord to charge the battery but I did notice later on that my car has a USB port and I can charge the camera when I'm on the road's not the worst feature after all.

3 out of 5 eggsgood and bad

Pros: Nikon quality. Clear and high quality photos for a point and shoot camera.
A little on board memory.

Cons: Where should I start. Hmmm... OK
1. The pop up flash is right where you hold a small camera at the top left. You go to snap a photo and your finger is there. Also you can't just press is down to close it you have to actually shut off the camera.
2. The "start movie" button. Again, right where you grip the camera on the top right back side. You want to take a photo and inadvertently start a movie.
3. I like to turn off the viewer between photos to preserve power minimum here is a timed setting of 30 seconds default 1 minute.
4. It takes 4 hours to recharge the battery. FOUR HOURS ???
5. No supplied memory card.

Other Thoughts: These are my first impressions. I haven't had the camera very long but I expect it's going to be very difficult to work with considering the placement of the above mentioned elements. I think maybe it was designed for a pygmy with little tiny hands. If you consider buying this camera go to a brick and morter store to get a feel for it. I'm sorry I didn't. I wish I had purchased it in a brick and mortar store so I could return for refund or at least exchange for different camera. Very Very disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: 16MP, 14x optical zoom, fast shutter speed, continuous shutter mode feature.

Cons: It did not come with mini hdmi adapter.

Other Thoughts: I got this camera for my wife for x-mas. The kids don't sit still for pictures, so continuous mode really works great. Our first Nikon camera and so far our favorite. We would definitively recommend it.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Let me start with saying this is one of my favorite cameras to date. I've owned several over the years from a few different brands but I'm definitely a Nikon fan now. They've packed a ton of cool features into this camera without becoming too gimmicky. I love the panorama modes and the smile timer. I wish my D5000 was able to do those things, it's amazing that this little point and shoot can do so much.

The camera starts up extremely fast, backlit CMOS image sensor, long zoom, great focal ranges for macro shots, slow motion movies, and also many format options for shooting movies. It's also very easy to use and the navigation/user interface is mostly intuitive and straight forward.

Some of the other cameras in this class have very few buttons on the back to make space for more screen real estate or to make the body smaller, but Nikon has decided on a more useful set of buttons that give you access to many commonly accessed features, rather than hiding them in menus.

Cons: With all the great and amazing things about this camera, I do have one major complaint. The flash can not retract unless you power the camera off. So if you accidentally deploy the flash, you can't close it until you turn off the camera. You can still disable the flash and not use it, but it will be sticking out, which I find annoying. I have gotten in the habit of just keeping it disabled all the time and only turning it on when I need it to avoid accidentally deploying it.

For this annoyance I have taken off one egg. If I could, I'd give it 4.5 eggs since it doesn't deserve to lose a whole one for that.

Other Thoughts: I bought this camera so I could take something small and light with me when I don't want to take my DSLR somewhere. But keep in mind, this camera isn't very small compared to some other models in it's class. (It's 1.3 inches thick) It is, however, my definition of small and isn't too small that you have a hard time holding onto it. My problem with the super compact cameras is that they are difficult for me to hold naturally.

5 out of 5 eggsReally

Pros: Vibrant LCD Screen, able to switch from video to picture taking with push button. Battery replacements available at a cheap cost. Picture quality very nice in low light conditions. Wide angle is nice for big view in shorter distance such as in party atmosphere where close room conditions don't usually allow point and shoot to get the whole picture. Was able to find waterproof to 33 ft case (Dicapac WP-570) that fit perfectly and less than 60 bucks. Able to zoom in video mode. (not always a feature on point and shoots). No worries with on button since it takes two pushes to turn it on...cuts down on pocket explosions from lens extending inadvertantly.

Cons: auto focus in video mode is not as accurate as in picture mode especially when zooming in, so best to autofocus in zoom picture and then switch to video. Audio quality just OK, but considering unit is comparable to others of this style camera. Others complain of pop-up of flash, but I find this gets it higher and further from center focal point of lens thereby cutting down on red-eye. You just need to keep it in mind and hold camera on the side or to brace in your hand differently.

Other Thoughts: A friend had the 8100 and I saw the pictures he was taking while we were in Korea bar hopping, and they looked great. That camera had some good detail in light conditions that my other camera couldn't handle. This camera is pretty much the same except higher resolution and a better focal range.

4 out of 5 eggsNikon S8200 performs well.

Pros: First, I purchased the Sony DSCHX9V/B; it was somewhat defective (all pics were tinged red) but I could otherwise judge the camera's performance.

I then bought BOTH the Nikon S9100 (because of the TV ad) and the Nikon S8200 (because of my research).

I spent the day and evening shooting pics and movies with all three cameras and found the S8200 beat the (albeit somewhat defective) DSCHX9V/B and S9100 quite easily. The 16MP CMOS seems to have been well integrated into the camera.

I was impressed by the S8200; particularly with the quality of the pictures/movies (full 1080p), the low-light capability, and the clarity of my high-zoom pics (because of the built-in stabilization).

Cons: I wish the 14x optical was higher. Still, I'm after a quality pic and will take that over the slightly higher zoom.

I wish Nikon would adopt the direct approach to scene selection á la Panasonic instead of the multi-step approach which is a bother when you're shooting. If I want portrait, I should be able to get to it directly w/o having to step through the menu. Panasonic lets you turn the dial to scene mode and arrow to your selection (and, they give you two of these so you can flip back and forth w/ease; i.e. portrait to ).

Other Thoughts: The value is hard to beat. Overall, I'm reasonably happy with this purchase.

I took one egg away on my rating because of the cumbersome Nikon scene mode selection and because I found the 14x optical to be average these days. The 18x of the S9100 would have been nice in the unit.
