4.0 out of 5 stars Great zoom, very good Continuous, November 1, 2010
This review is from: Nikon Coolpix S8100 12.1 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom-Nikkor ED Lens and 3.0-Inch LCD (Black) (Camera)
I am primarily a DSLR user, but that is not always practical to carry around. I enjoy skiing and snowmobiling in the winter, and a compact camera is much easier for those activities. Additionally, I always carry a camera in my purse just in case the perfect shot comes up. Almost all of my pictures are either landscape, or action (pets and sports). I was actually researching for a camera as a gift for someone else when I found that there are a few cameras now that provide a large optical zoom capability AND the continuous/burst modes. These 2 features in combination in a compact camera exactly meet my requirements. So far I am very pleased with the pictures from this camera. I've posted several photos at this Amazon camera link for people to view that demonstrate the features most important to me. There are 2 pictures with an Airstream trailer, one at no zoom, the other at 10x zoom. That zoom is amazing. Fantastic clarity and detail (even when I zoom in on my computer). The continuous shooting is not as good as my DSLR, but still very acceptable. I added a couple of photos of my cat and golden retriever taken in the continuous mode (12MP*). These photos demonstrate shots from very slow motion up to very fast motion. I printed a few shots as 8.5 x 11, and the printed pictures came out extremely clear. I'm still testing it out, but so far its definitely a keeper!
