Product Features
  • Sure shooting, even in challenging lighting situations
    The Coolpix S8100 enables you to capture beautiful handheld portraits at night. In night portrait mode, the camera first shoots a rapid sequence of exposures at shutter speeds fast enough to capture the background cleanly followed by an additional exposure using the flash to capture your subject. The exposures are then merged into a single composite image, producing a beautiful image of both your subject and the background.
  • Quick response and high-speed shooting
    The Coolpix S8100 keeps you ahead of the action with its ultra-fast start-up time, high-speed AF operation, and quick shot-to-shot turnaround. Other high-speed options include continuous mode and the pre-shooting cache.
  • Crafted for quality
    Engineering to ensure imaging excellence and maximize creative freedom includes a precision 10x zoom, Nikkor ED glass lens and Nikon's EXPEED C2 image processing engine.
  • Full HD movie recording with stereo sound
    At the press of a button, you can record Full 1080p HD movies with stereo sound, and use the 10x optical zoom throughout. While recording, save a still image at any time by pressing the shutter button. Also there's a built-in HDMI connector that enables output to your high-definition TV.

Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewVery Good


    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.
