The Nikon CoolPix S810 isn t loaded with frivolous bells and whistles--it s got seriously awesome bells and whistles like a 12.1MP CMOS sensor, a sharp, wide-angle to telephoto 10x optical zoom lens (30-300mm 35mm equivalent) made with Nikon ED glass, 1080p HD video, 5 frames per second shooting, 4-way image stabilization for sharp photos even in low light, and a beautiful 921,000-dot high resolution 3 LCD display. But there s a lot more. Like Subject Tracking to automatically track and auto focus on a moving subject; one-touch video recording with optical zoom, stereo sound and an in-camera editing function; HDR (high dynamic range) function that automatically merges several images of the same scene to achieve a single image with a broad, beautiful range of tonal detail not otherwise possible; and 17 scene modes including the Scene Auto Selector, which automatically recognizes any shooting situation and optimizes all the settings for that scene.

Nikon S8100 camera Plus and Minus
Pros: Ease of use, 10x zoom, small size, good value
Cons: Focus hunting, especially with video. Low light picture quality.
A major step up from your basic 3x zoom compact, but easy to use. 10x zoom is excellent. Occasional out of focus issues, especially when shooting videos. Read More at Epinions.com

Nikon S8100 Has Good Features and HD Recording But Also Quality Issues
Pros: Small size, good feel in the hands, HD video recording, large LCD, easy Record button.
Cons: Lens defect may cause it to get stuck, pop-up flash gets in way.
Bottom Line: The S8100 is a good camera with HD recording and high-resolution photos. But its recent lens defect makes getting an extended warranty an option to consider.

Nikon Coolpix S8100: A step backwards
Pros: Compact; good flash, nice LCD display, useful manual controls
Cons: Occasional soft focus in photos; lots of focus hunting with video; modest battery life
The specs for the Nikon S8100 look great but the camera's overall performance is disappointing. In particular, video from the S8100 is mostly not usable. Read More at Epinions.com
