Nikon Coolpix S8100

 

A 12.1 megapixel compact camera that can shoot up to five images in one second through a 10x zoom lens, the Nikon Coolpix S8100 promises razor-sharp results.

Nikon Coolpix S8100 review

 

The Coolpix S8100 compact megazoom is Nikon's follow-up to the Coolpix S8000 . That camera didn't offer much more than what you could get from other manufacturers--if anything--and produced average photos and had average shooting performance. Its...

Excellent shooting performance; great LCD; stereo mic; 10x zoom in an attractive compact body.

Soft photos on either side of ISO 200; white balance is a little off; no manual or semimanual shooting modes.

With fast performance, good photos, and an excellent feature-to-price ratio, the Nikon Coolpix S8100 is a compact megazoom worth considering.

Nikon Coolpix S8100 Review

 

The Coolpix S8100 is Nikon's second travel-zoom camera, featuring a 10x zoom lens with a versatile focal range of 30-300mm. Measuring just 29.9mm thick, key features of the S8100 include a 12 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, high resolution 3...

The Nikon Coolpix S8100 is an appealingly simple-to-use yet powerful travel zoom camera that is a marked improvement on the original S8000 in many ways, but its 30mm lens and average image quality prevent us from recommending it more highly. Nikon are...

Nikon S8100

 

The Nikon Coolpix S8100 is based around a backside-illuminated CMOS image sensor with an effective resolution of 12.1 megapixels. BSI sensors place their circuitry on the reverse (non-light gathering) side of the image sensor, offering up more of the...

12.1-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor ; Very good 10x Nikkor ED VR optical zoom lens ; 30-300mm eq. lens is reasonably wide with good telephoto reach ; Very fast shutter lag, rivaling digital SLRs ; Solid feel, comfortable grip ; Very simple control layout ;...

Few manual options ; No dedicated battery charger ; Output compartment door seems flimsy ; Charging port is difficult to reach ; Below-average battery life ; Hard-to-reach on/off button ; Soft corners at wide-angle ; Bright chromatic aberration at wide...

Flash: Our manufacturer-specified testing (shown at right) is bright at 13 feet, but the camera raised ISO to 455 to boost exposure. The telephoto test also came out bright at 8.2 feet, though with a considerable ISO boost to 712.

Nikon Coolpix S8100

 

The Nikon Coolpix S8100 is a speedy ultra-zoom that performs well even in dim settings, reviews say. Packed with a 12-megapixel CMOS sensor for less image noise, the S8100 displays better low-light versatility than most shooters, but "textures...

Good low-light performance, full 1080p high-definition video, sharp LCD resolution, can zoom while shooting video

Soft images, lacks shutter and aperture priority modes, noisy zoom motor in video mode, poorly placed pop-up flash

Nikon Coolpix S8100 review

 

The 12.1Mp S8100 is a good looking compact camera with a back-lit CMOS sensor that should keep image noise down

Good quality images ; Small and light ; Good build quality ; Fast start-up time

Lack of manual controls ; Lack of speed with moving subjects

Nikon Coolpix S8100

 

Excellent LCD screen ; Good low-light images ; A staggering amount of shooting options to choose from

Average HD video quality ; Some digital noise at full magnification ; Burst shooting buffer not as fast as others

Offering a whole heap of shooting modes and generally good image quality, the S8100 is a tempting proposition for those looking for a 10x optical zoom compact.
