    I am a semi pro who uses full-frame Nikon D700 and DX format D7000 DSLRs. I had a basic Coolpix before and wanted a pocket camera that I could take anywhere when I didn't want the burden of my normal camera. How many times have you heard someone say "but I didn't have a camera on me" when they miss a photo opportunity?

    The spec of this S8200 is very impressive and it's solidly and reassuringly made, with nicely weighted controls. A big 3 inch screen, an impressive lens and a number of extra modes (inc good close-up) for the more adventurous photographer, all for a reasonable price make this an inspired choice. I have only taken well exposed, sharp photos - it refuses to let me down!

    The lens is a real cracker - and I use some very expensive Nikon Nikkor lenses with my DSLRs to compare it with - not only the wideangle at its widest setting but all the way up through its 14x zoom, at all settings it shows good sharpness and distortion is very well controlled. The built in anti camera shake feature kicks in on long lengths and is really effective. Even the extra 2x digital zoom beyond the normal is surprisingly usable.

    For those wanting more exposure control, there's a really useful and easy to use compensation button on the main rocker switch. Press once and a vertical chart pops up on screen and you can increment in 1/3 stops up or down up to 2 stops either way. Press OK and the screen clears and you shoot. The screen image brightens and darkens accordingly, so you know how much to change it by. However, you have to remember to reset it after as there's no visual reminder.

    I am a DSLR user and owner/past owner of many cameras. My current pocket point and shoot/backup camera is a Canon Powershot SX210 IS. I bought the Nikon Coolpix S8200 mainly because of its backlit CMOS sensor (which is an improvement over the Canon's).
    Since using the S8200, I have been very pleasantly surprised. First, the build quality appears to be solid, weighty and has a quality feel to it (although not too sure about the paint on the thumbwheel - bound to be susceptible to wear and tear). Secondly, the handling is pleasant and assured, with a DSLR feel. Thirdly, the image quality is very good for a point and shoot. Noise, the dreaded noise is well controlled when light is good, but noticable in low-light situations.
    The biggest surprise to me is the way the camera takes pictures. It works entirely off auto or scenes, there is even an auto-scene setting which works like a dream. It automatically picks the scene settings, and the results are amazing; making taking pictures a breeze (because I no longer have to think about shutter speed, aperture, lighting etc...). There are no manual modes of any sort, and I can't even revert to my sometimes obsessive desires to control every aspect of a camera! What a joy.
    I think Nikon has made a very good 'point and shoot' camera, if you just allow the camera to its own devices, it'll reward you with good pictures.

    In the box
    ==========
    The camera comes neatly packaged in a commendably busy little box with a number of accessories and paperwork. You get:
    = The camera
    = A USB cable
    = An AV cable
    = A lanyard
    = A rechargeable Li-ion battery
    = A charger adapter
    = A quick start manual
    = A CD with Nikon's image processing software
    = A second CD with reference information, including the detailed user manual.
    = A veritable snow-drift of other bits of paperwork that can, for the most part, go straight into the recycling.

    There is no SD card provided so you will need to buy one of these and neither is there a camera case.

    Size
    ====
    The camera itself is about the size of a packet of cigarettes, but a little deeper and it slips into a pocket as easily as a small mobile phone. I was expecting something a lot bigger and bulkier. I'm sure that there are plenty of much more compact cameras on the market but this is no elephant by any means - certainly when compared to my elderly Canon 3xzoom model. It's light enough to be used comfortably one-handed but heavy enough to retain a nice heft.

    Looks and layout
    ================
    This is by no means a good looking camera. It's boxy and angular unlike its more ergonomic-looking cousin the COOLPIX L610. On the other hand it looks well engineered and is (in my opinion) at its best in the "traditional" black finish.

    The top of the housing carries the zoom control, the on-off switch, the shooting mode setting wheel and the shutter button and on the left hand side of the top is a pop-out flash.

    Had my eye on the Canon S95, but in the end a surprise gift of a Nikon S8200 took the decision out of my hands and as a complete photographic amateur, I'm more than happy with the results. Its operation is so intuitive that the control freak in me has not even been persuaded to get the manual out of the box once! Everything is automatic, and it seems to read your mind and does what you want it to, without the need for manual settings at all!

    As others have said, the colour fidelity is great, optical zoom effective, and the zoom operation is as rapid as I need it to be when focusing on a rapidly approaching or receding child (!), and the automatic settings responsive in all light conditions tried so far.

    Panorama option is a fun addition to the repertoire, while the remaining usual selection of gimmicky effects that can be reproduced later in photoshop are all there for those that like their portraits in sepia etc...

    I thought I'd miss not having an optical viewfinder, but the screen is still manageable even in sunny conditions for taking and viewing photos, and the screen resolution is superior to any others I've seen. I've even ventured into the world of macro, with beautifully clear results.
