Nikon Coolpix S8200 First Impressions Review

Nikon improves upon the popular S8100 with higher resolution, longer optical zoom, and some updated features.



Nikon's Coolpix S8200 is a new model that resides very near the top of the company's compact lineup. It's an improvement on the popular S8100, upping resolution to 16.1 megapixels (from 12.1) and optical zoom to 14x (from 10x). This is another CMOS model, and the lens aperture has been widened slightly to f/3.3. The improvements carry extra cost however, MSRP is currently $330, fairly expensive for an ultracompact camera.
