Nikon Coolpix S8000: slim yet powerful 10X superzoom 14 MP compact digital camera

The Nikon Coolpix S8000 lays claim to the title of the world’s slimmest 10x zoom compact. And while tech is dominated by constant chatter about “world firsts”, this nifty little number is every bit as good as its makers reckon.

The zoom is the real big drawer with the Nikon Coolpix S8000.
Use it in conjunction with the ace macro mode and your shots will be imbued with excellent detail and will let you get close up without any nasty blur around the edge of your pics.

Push the lens wider though and your landscape shots will really look the part. The 30mm shots we took looked vast and rich in detail, perfect if you want cracking pics without investing in something bulkier and pricier.

Elsewhere the Nikon Coolpix S8000 is instilled with the camera maker’s excellent and easy-to-use UI.
Accessing scene modes is straightforward via one button, letting you optimise your shots wherever you are.

Moreover the LCD screen slapped on the back is ace too. At 3-inches and featuring 921k pixel it’s more than ample for viewing your handiwork, although we would have preferred AMOLED in order to get a slightly bigger viewing angle and it’s comparable to higher-level Nikon’s D90!

Nikon Coolpix S8000’s short list of features:

The Nikon Coolpix S8000 is available right now at the slim price of US $262.20, so you save $37.75 (that’s 13% off its regular price)!
