Nikon's COOLPIX S8200 Digital Camera puts ease-of-use and a remarkable 16.1MP CMOS sensor at your fingertips. This marriage of simplicity and an impressive number of pixels gives you multiple options when it comes to documenting the moments of your life. From carrying the camera everywhere you go, so you're ready when the moment strikes, to capturing incredibly detailed images that are ready to be turned into mural-sized works of art, the S8200 gives you the best of both worlds.
The camera also boasts a 14x Optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens with a 25-350mm (35mm equivalent) focal range. That means you can shoot everything from close-up groups to far-off vistas, and everything in-between. The 4-Way Image Stabilization system works to eliminate camera shake for clear images with optical VR, Motion Detection, Best Shot Selector, and High ISO options. In addition, the 3.0" LCD monitor with Nikon's Clear Color display and anti-reflective coating makes for hassle-free composition and review of all your images.
Along with capturing high-res photos the S8200 also records 1080p high definition video with stereo sound. Upon playback on the big screen (AKA: your HDTV), your memories will both look and sound great. While shooting, the camera gives you the option of using a one touch record button for starting and stopping video capture, allowing you to catch the moment, instead of missing it because you're navigating through the menu.
While the S8200 might be considered a point-and-shoot it definitely offers you a number of options for putting your own mark on things. In-camera effects let you add special masks or filters to your images to evoke a certain look or feel. Smile timer automatically captures a smile, continuous shooting lets you capture up to 5 shots in a second, and Pre-Shooting enables recording of images just before the shutter is released. These, along with the other numerous shooting modes, guarantee a user-friendly yet creative way to capture the world around you.
