|Nikon Coolpix 8800 is designed for the serious photographer who aspires to take the highest quality images. This is possible with the ultra high-definition 8.0 effective megapixels. The 10x optical zoom, 35-350mm focal range (35mm equivalent), targets those who also require high zoom power. Due to its large zoom range, Vibration Reduction (VR) is needed to compensate inevitable camera movements. VR automatically detects and compensates for these small camera movements that causes image blur. Thanks to the VR, you can achieve sharp and clear images when shooting in low light (shutter speeds up to 3 stops slower) or when taking handheld telephoto and macro shots. VR even works with the telephoto converter lens at 600mm (35mm equivalent). This extremely versatile camera offers a range of lens converters (Tele, Wideangle and fisheye), optical filters, speedlights, software and other accessories for even more creative flexibility. With this camera you create the photographic rules.|

Overall, the Nikon Coopix 8800 is a wonderful camera. I am a professional photographer and I use this camera 95% of the time because it does what I need it to do.
Sometimes called a "prosumer" level camera, the camera has more than enough features for an advanced amateur, and usually enough for a professional. Some snapshooters have claimed it was "too complicated" for them, but they probably never read the manual. The average Joe can use generic / snapshooter settings and do just fine -- but the advanced features are there if he needs them.
I owned its predecessor, the Nikon Coolpix 8700, for years, and won contests with it. Though the two models are similar in many respects, there are significant differences. For my money, the 8800 is the clear choice. You can buy an 8800 in nice condition on Ebay for about $150; it's a terrific bargain.
Both cameras have GREAT optics and versatile exposure metering systems.
A BIG problem with the 8700 was the "user interface". The 8700 controls SUCK. The 8800 revamped the controls, making the 8800 MUCH easier to use.
The newer 8800 model can focus down to 1.5 INCHES, so you can capture a pimple on a mosquito with ease. Very handy for closeup work.
The variable zoom reaches way out there, and the digital zoom even farther -- with some loss in resolution, of course. Initially, I was a bit concerned that the zoom mechanism might be a bit fragile and susceptible to dirt and sand, but I had no problems with it when I carried my 8700 on a motorcycle for 6,000 miles around the western U.S. for 4 months.
Like most consumer-level cameras, both models suffer from "digital delay" -- the lag between pressing the shutter button and the shutter being fired. This can be a bit of a problem when shooting fast-moving things. Anticipate the action and follow through.
For me, a MAJOR reason to own either model is the compact size of the camera and the choice of viewfinder or screen display. The viewfinder uses little battery power, while the screen lets you see what you're doing with the camera raised way above your head or down close to the ground. The size of the screen is big enough, AND it swivels horizontally and vertically! I REALLY like that and use it often.
Both models will shoot surprisingly good video. The 8800 supports a faster frame rate for more life-like action, and a larger format.
A minor criticism of both models is the weird, non-standard filter size of 53.5mm. That size is difficult to find -- and pricey. I had some 55mm filters around, so I invested in a step-down ring from 53.5mm to 52mm, and then a step-up ring to a larger size filter.
The built-in flash of both models can be partially blocked by a large-diameter lens hood; it can be aggravating to have to remove the hood.
Both models use readily-available Compact Flash cards. Invest in some large-capacity cards; high-resolution photos gobble up memory fast. Buy FAST cards; they will store high-res photos much quicker.
A sometimes-severe limitation of both models is the small-ish size of the internal battery; it's easy to run out of battery power, especially if you use the flash much. Invest in in several additional batteries to take with you; if you're a prosumer or pro, buy an external battery pack for sure.
A nice feature of both models is the viewfinder diopter; very nice to have if you wear glasses.
Considered vintage by today standards, it still is one of the best cameras I use. My reason for purchasing this one is to have a spare in case mine breaks down. I have two other with the latest technology cameras, but my Nikon is my favorite for eBay photos. Uncomplicated and a great performer. Highly recommend...
The camera was a gift for my wife who thinks I paid over $1,000 for it. She loves it, and it gives professional quality pictures even with a novice photographer taking the pictures. The camera has a special feature that equalizes the shakes of the photograper and all the pictures, even the ones with movement, come out very clear. The 8800 has been a great gift!!!
Older (~2005) prosumer compact digital camera. Good intermediate between ordinary point & shoot and DSLR. Has auto pop-up flash and accepts Nikon SB-600 & -800 shoe mount flashes for large rooms or longer than 9 foot distances. Can also accept additional lenses & filters. Has self-timer, can use IR remote and does short movies. Can connect to TV. Better than previous 8700.
This camera reminds me of a mid 90's dinosaur camcorder. The screen is TINY. The focus is incredibly SLOW and inaccurate. The camera will not focus at all in normal indoor lighting conditions. The buttons are slow to respond. The camera also makes a kind of quiet whirring sound whenever it is on. This may have been a decent camera 10 years ago, but by today's standards, it is completely obsolete. I bought it intending to give it as a Christmas present, but once I looked at it I decided it would be an insulting gift and I got rid of it.
