Nikon 26288B Overview

  • 1Description

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.

Go From Ordinary to Extraordinary
Catch those summer evening shots around the bonfire, or freeze the action of the winning goal. Fast, responsive and boasting an incredible 14x optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens, the Nikon COOLPIX S8200 will help you capture images you may previously have missed. Its 16.1MP CMOS sensor crisply renders your view of the world-whether low light, far off fast action or sweeping panoramas. Capture sharp, clear photos and Full HD (1080p) movies using Nikon's incredible optics. Spice up stills and movies with special effects, and view everything on a 3-inch, ultra-high resolution (921,000 dot) display
See What's Possible
If your old camera never quite captured the moment, the S8200 will! It boasts a high-resolution, 16.1MP CMOS sensor so you get superb image quality-even in low light. With fast, versatile, continuous shooting modes, you can capture those spontaneous moments shot after shot. Then show family and friends your movies and still creations on the 3" ultra-high resolution (921,000 dot) display. Stylish and compact, the S8200 tucks into a pocket but packs brilliant performance and advanced features
From Macro to Mountains: 14x Optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED Glass Lens
Despite a slim profile of approximately 1.3 inches, the S8200 delivers amazing versatility with an incredible 14x zoom (25mm to 350mm equivalent). Imagine creating macro images of a bumblebee in a spring flower, then zooming out to frame a mountain range for a panorama. With the S8200, you can go from wide-angle to telephoto to macro/close-up views in an instant, preserving photos or movies of most everything from grandstand crowds to a stage performer's smile
Put Your Memories in Motion: 1080p HD Movies with Stereo Sound
A single photo may not always be enough to recreate the moment; sometimes memories are best shared with a movie. Portable and ready when important things happen, the COOLPIX S8200 lets you create stunning Full HD (1080p) movies with stereo sound at the touch of a button. You'll love its ability to zoom in and out at will-while keeping subjects in focus. Stylize your story with one of various special effects or by recording in 15, 60 or 120 fps for fast/motion effects. Life doesn't stand still; neither should your memories
Automated Versatility: Easy Panorama, Night Modes, HDR & More!
Maybe you've wanted to create panoramic photos but thought they were too difficult. Maybe you've tried shooting photos at night but they never turn out. The S8200 takes the guesswork out of shots like these and more with handy Scene Modes at the ready. For sweeping panoramas, simply pan the camera and let it detect and automatically combine images to build a gorgeous vista. Going out at night? The S8200 takes great low-light photos. You can even create amazing HDR shots in-camera. The S8200 does the work
Discover Your Inner Artist: In-Camera Effects For Unique Results
Let the artist in you go from ordinary to extraordinary! With a variety of in-camera effects, such as Low Key, High Key, Hard Monochrome, Nostalgia Sepia or Selective Color, your world takes on a new dimension. The S8200 provides you the tools to fashion photos and movies with more than just your great eye-just select an effect and go! For your still photography, bring out your creative side with a fisheye, miniature or even an artistic look. Finally, you can make the kinds of photos and movies you've always wanted to make
Flattering Portraits Every Time
Nikon's Smart Portrait System includes Smile Timer, which automatically recognizes when a subject is smiling and releases the shutter, Face-Priority AF, which finds and focuses on up to 12 faces, Blink Warning, Red-Eye Fix, Skin Softening and more
Steady Even When You're Not
The S8200's four advanced Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization functions automatically reduce the streaky images associated with shaky cameras

Strength in Numbers

    Nikon 26288B Reviews

    COOLPIX S8200 Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 128.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has worked well so far!! Been great in low level light situations where flash is not allowed. Dusk photo have looked like it was shoot on a cloudy day versus after the sun has gone down. I got it for the 1080p video and I think it has done well for the price paid. Just need to get a extra battery to that I can keep shooting. Only thing I don't like is the 29 min time limit for video - not a big deal but the limit exists. The popup flash is located right where I tend to put my left index finger - you quickly learn not to put your finger over the flash when you want flash. Also the flash stays up until you turn the camera off.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very nice poiint and shoot camera Ipurchased this camera to have as one to carry with me all the time. It's small enough to be put in a pocket and yet it has many excellant features. Really like the length of the zoom and the panaroma feature. One dislike is the way Nikon designed the flash to pop up right where the natural place is to hold the camera with your left hand. It also has to have the camera completly shut off in order for the flash to close. Also the battery has to charged in the body, no external charging method. Will certainly take some getting used to.All in all a great little camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Fab! I own a Nikon D40 and D300. I am an amateur photographer and specialize in art photography. I recently had to travel and was required to pack VERY light (as in a backpack only). I purchased this camera after doing a good bit of research. The camera got excellent reviews, but after using DSLR technology for several years, I did not have high hopes. Boy was I wrong! This camera did it all - action, stills, portrait. It is incredible in low light! It even has some really fun special effects. I now take this camera with me everywhere. It is small and light and I can throw it in my handbag. While I won't give up my DSRL cameras, this point and shoot will become part of my photo equipment for sure! I HIGHLY recommend the Coolpix S8200!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little camera! I purchased this camera to replace my Nikon S8100 that was damaged on a trip to the Keys. For my photography business I use a Canon 60D with a 18-200mm lens, but for fun I like a pocket camera. This one is perfect! I get clear pictures with a super zoom. I used it at a music festival recently and the pictures were exceptional both day and night. The 14X zoom really gets in close. The S8200 also does a great job stabilizing the image. The only thing I would change on the camera is the ability to close the flash without having to turn off the camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pocket camera! The size and weight is perfect for travel and home snap shots. Easy to carry in your pocket or bag. Has all the selections you may need for different settings, day and night. If you do not want to bother selecting the setting, just let the camera do it for you under Auto or Scene Auto. I own and use the Coolpix S710 and S8100 with very similar controls, but find the S8200 superior. I enjoy the use of this camera very much. Does 85% of the photography I do with my DSLR camera, without the weight and volume, plus I can take movies and record sounds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing little camera I took this on a recent trip to Europe along with my Nikon D300 and was absolutely amazed at the quality of the pictures. The best features are the in-camera HDR/backlight capabilities and the Noise reduction landscape mode. I got some superb shots in low-light conditions that I couldn't get with my D300 without a tripod.The pictures taken with the HDR feature were fantastic. I couldn't have been more pleased with the results. The HDR and Landscape NR features require you to stand still for about 5 to 6 seconds while the camera takes the extra shots but the vibration reduction in the camera made the shots come out as clear as a bell. I always take two cameras with me on vacation because sometimes a snapshot is all you have time to take. I use my D300 for the more serious shots especially when I have time to put my tripod up. I have the previous version of this camera - the S8000. The S8200 is light years better. I also liked the fact that I could change the ISO, the white balance and the metering.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great New Camera I shot some pictures at Thunder on the Bay in Sarasota, Florida with my new Coolpix S8200. The camera performed very well in all light conditions. The pop up flash took a few shots to get my fingers in the right place and a little getting used to power off the camera in order for it to retract. This will not be a big deal. The battery charging only in the camera is not a problem for me as it charges in less than four hours. I was looking for a camera without GPS and I think I found just the perfect camera for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera for the money! Bought this as a birthday present to myself a few weeks ago. I wanted a high zoom camera with a compact size, and a camera that takes good photos in low light. This is the camera! The camera has a quick response time and takes great photos both inside and outside. Colors are bright and vivid. Video is great. The only thing so far that I don't really care for is the flash location. The way I hold the camera, the flash is under my left pointer finger, and if the flash needs to fire my finger is usually in the way of it popping up. I am just going to have to learn to hold the camera differently. But this is a great compact high zoom camera for the price!
