Nikon CoolPix 8800 - Test Shots - Exposure Evaluation

Nikon CoolPix 8800


Our Score:


Even at the space-saving Normal quality setting there are no visible JPEG artifacts on the subtle gradient of the sky in this shot.

The 8800 has a wide angle setting equivalent to 35mm on a film camera. Not brilliant, but good enough for some nice panoramas.

I just wanted to say that I agree with all the comments that Cliff made concerning the Nikon Coolpix 8800, it is indeed a superb piece of equipment, I own several digital camera's, but the 8800 outshines them all and I have yet to see better image quality. In fact, fearing that something untoward might happen to my 8800, I went on Ebay and found a spare just in case...the seller described it as 'in superb condition', in fact it was in mint condition, all credit to him, and all for 𧶏...if anyone is thinking about starting out on the digi trail then I can thoroughly recommend that they seriously consider this camera, they won't be disappointed.

Best regards.

October 28, 2011. Just surfing around and saw this review about my trusted old Nikon 8800.
When talking about "Best" camera, you have to ask, "Best for what". I have carried my 8800 through 30 countries (with a Nikon 8700 backup). The camera is superb for traveling. I have printed 16x20 inch prints of Meteora in Greece that the lab could not believe came from a 5-year old 8-MP camera.

It may not be the best "Studio" camera, but I don't care.
