Nikon Coolpix S8000
The Nikon Coolpix S8000 is a 14-megapixel compact megazoom with a 10x Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens on front and a 3-inch 921K-dot LCD on back. It's also one of the slimmest 10x zoom cameras currently available. Nikon was late to adding HD video capture to its compact cameras, but that feature is available on the S8000 as is a stereo mic, which is still a bit of a rarity. An HDMI output is built in, too, for quickly connecting to an HDTV or monitor for viewing photos and movies.
Other features include Optical VR image stabilization, macro shooting as close as 0.4 inch, and the ability to easily adjust brightness, vividness, and color hue. There's also the promise of ultrafast start-up, autofocus, and shooting performance.
Expeed Image Processing ensures high-quality pictures with stunning color and sharpness. Nikon’s comprehensive digital imaging processing concept incorporates the know-how and technologies accumulated throughout our long history of photographic and digital imaging development and is custom-tuned for COOLPIX. Applied optimized technologies render natural-looking pictures of incredible quality and quick response so you won’t miss that special moment.
Intelligent Scene Recognition puts the job of selecting scene settings in the hands of the camera. The camera will analyse the scene and automatically determine which of its available scene modes best suits the conditions. Available scene modes are: Portrait; Landscape; Night Portrait; Night Landscape; Close-up; Backlight.
