Nikon Nikon COOLPIX S8200 Black 16.1MP Digital Camera w/ 14x Optical Zoom Lens, 3" LCD Display, HD Video, Image Stabilization

The Nikon COOLPIX S8200 16.1MP Digital Camera features a precision 14x optical zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens, which covers a 25mm wide-angle to 350mm super-telephoto focal range. This combines with a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, lens-shift VR image stabilization and advanced image processing to ensure maximum image quality, whether shooting at day or night. It also features a newly developed AF (autofocus) mode unlike any you've witnessed before. This advanced AF function finds your subject and sets the appropriate focus area for a sharp lock on that subject, even when other objects lie closer to the camera within the frame.

Great features for a Point and Shoot!

I am very happy with this point and shoot camera. Because I rarely lug around my other camera (a Digital SLR), I miss out on many photo ops. This compact, yet high-featured camera is a great option.
I really like the amazing 14x optical zoom - rare for such a compact camera. Though you can use it in the automatic mode, for photographers who like to change their settings, you'll find variable ISO, light metering, and other advanced features. For those who want better photos, but don't really want to go into the super details, Nikon has a number of easy to use pre-set "scene" settings that will help you get a great shot in many different scenarios.
The camera has a "burst" mode, where you can take a rapid sequence of shots. This nice little feature is good for those action shots or just to make sure nobody is blinking in your photo. The screen on the back is a really good size and very clear - making your compositions that much easier to see.
It has a built-in flash, which you can operate manually or leave in automatic mode. The only thing that I didn't really like about the camera was that once the flash pops up, you cannot put it back down until you shut the camera off.
It does full HD 1080P movie recording with a stereo microphone built into the camera. I love the HD recording, but plan on getting a bigger SD card to store the large files.
Long story short, this is a great little feature-packed point and shoot camera. I'd easily recommend this for users from casual to advanced.
Pros: high resolution, great zoom, advanced features, great screen
Cons: flash pop-up stays up

I purchased this camera in the store, used it once, placed it back in the box and left it for about 4 months. The next time I went to use it I got nothing but a black screen when I turned it on. I had it diagnosed and it appears to be a sensor that is causing the problem. I do not have my receipt to return it to Nikon to use the warranty so I now own an overpriced paperweight.
