The Nikon Coolpix S8000
Photographs are a great way to keep special memories alive. Getting quality pictures without expensive and bulky equipment is now something anyone can achieve. The Nikon Coolpix S8000 is a great camera for those who love to take beautiful snapshots but do not wish to deal with complicated adjustments.
An array of automatically adjusting settings makes it so easy to use. Lighting, movement and focus are all controlled by simple features that take the guess work completely out of the equation. This compact, handheld device is loaded with amazing options that make capturing memories as easy as pie.
Though one of the slimmest cameras available, it delivers in true Nikon fashion. Weighing in at just 6.5 ounces and measuring less than five inches, it is easily carried in a pocket for quick access. It is truly unbelievable that something so tiny can produce such high quality photographs.
Photos are taken at an incredible 14.2 megapixels and can be printed in large sizes up to 16x20 without losing their quality. This amazing device even has macro shooting capabilities that allow clear images to be produced from as close as a single centimeter away from the subject. Consistently great pictures will be captured using the auto-focus and other specializedsettings available.
There are four different anti-blur settings on this device that make it easy to get perfect shots of moving objects. The ISO 3200 Light Sensitivity works with the vibration reduction function to reduce the smudging of subjects in motion when in low lighting conditions. The Advanced Motion Detection is great for snapping action pictures of sporting events because it compensates for
jiggling of the camera to stabilize the image.
Another function that ensures the user will always get the absolute best photo possible is the Best Shot Selector (BSS) feature. What this does is sets the camera to take up to ten pictures in quick succession. With this many split-second images, the one with the highest quality is saved and there is no worry of missing a great opportunity due to bad settings.
This device also comes with a 10x optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens. This amazing feature goes from the standard 30mm range to an incredible 300mm telephoto for extreme close-ups. The most impressive thing about this particular type of lens is that while it concentrates on zeroing in on the subject, it keeps the wide angle on the area around it. Images are sharp and rich with detail and high quality color.
Great HD video can be recorded at 30fps and in 720p with this device. Stereo sound captures and reproduces realistic quality audio. HDMI playback can be viewed on the LCD, a PC or compatible TV. The 3" VGA screen has an anti-glare coating that permits all pictures and movies to be reviewed and edited even in the brightest lighting conditions.
Perhaps one of the more popular features available on the Nikon CoolpixS8000 is the Creative Slider. This is an innovative way to review images and make adjustments to brightness, tone and saturation with just a slide of finger. The results are displayed in real-time on the LCD so that the user canalways make sure they get the picture exactly as they want it.
