Nikon Coolpix 8800 announcement clippings


The COOLPIX 8800 is designed for serious photographers who aspire to take the highest quality images. With its 10x zoom, it also targets those who require higher zoom power and those who benefit from its fully loaded yet completely portable design. The extremely versatile COOLPIX 8800 meets their requirements, as well as demands from those who want state-of-the-art image quality and even greater ease of use. And for those who want to expand their options, the COOLPIX 8800 offers a range of lens converters, Speedlights and other accessories.

The COOLPIX 8800 carries an astonishing 8.0 effective megapixels for ultrahigh-definition photography. Your image clarity is ensured because of a professional-quality, 10x Zoom-Nikkor ED lens. With its 8.9-89mm focal range (35mm equivalent to 35-350mm), the lens incorporates two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass lens elements to minimize chromatic aberration and produce amazingly sharp and clear images.

The lens of the COOLPIX 8800 incorporates the Vibration Reduction (VR) System — a first for the COOLPIX line. VR automatically detects and compensates for the small camera movements that cause image blur. This offers the user the ability to shoot at shutter speeds up to three stops slower without the risk of camera vibrations blurring your image. Along with Normal Mode, which enables remarkably clear handheld shots, Active Mode helps to ensure a smoother view in shaky conditions, such as shooting from a moving vehicle. Thanks to VR, users can achieve sharp and clear images when shooting in low light or when taking handheld telephoto and macro shots. It even works with the accessory telephoto converter lens at 600mm (35mm equivalent).

The camera offers four exposure modes: Programmed Auto [P], Shutter-Priority Auto [S], Aperture-Priority Auto [A] and Manual [M]. These modes combine to give you the greatest degree of creative control possible. The COOLPIX 8800 also offers [AUTO] mode, in which the camera automatically selects appropriate exposures and shutter speeds, giving users high-quality point-and-shoot capability.

And for striking images in practically any situation, the new COOLPIX 8800 features 15 versatile [SCENE] modes. Simply select the mode appropriate to your lighting conditions, and the camera will automatically adjust the aperture, shutter speed, focus, flash, contrast, sensitivity and white balance.
