      I recently bought myself a Nikon Coolpix 8800 8MP digital camera. This is called a “prosumer” or “bridge” camera, because it looks like a single-lens reflex (SLR) camera, but is in fact a large fixed-lens camera, although about the same size as the average SLR+lens, with an SLR-style 1. 8-inch LCD viewing screen that can be pulled out and tilted various angles, as required.

      The Coolpix 8800’s lens has a 10x optical and a 4x digital zoom capacity. The zoom range is from 8.

      9mm to 89mm and the lens has a built-in vibration reduction device. Images are stored


      on a compact flash card in either JPG, or TIFF, or RAW formats and power is from a rechargeable L-Ion battery.

      there are many pre-set programs on the camera to help the user take photos in all sorts of lighting situations. In addition, the camera offers shutter-priority, apeture-priority and fully automatic exposure modes.

      Focusing can be either automatic or manual and macro shots are possible up to a minimum distance of 1. 2 inches from the subject.

      It also has a small built-in flash, as well as a hot-shoe to which a larger flash can be attached. Finally,


      • if still photos are not enough, this camera will also shoot video clips with sound, via a built-in microphone.

        these are the main features, but there are also many others. I like the Nikon Coolpix 8800 because: it’s versatile yet convenient for travel photography, because there is no need to carry a number of different lenses around; the fixed-lens means that there is no danger of dust getting on to the sensor and spoiling images; it has a good zoom range; the image quality is superb practically every time; the user’s handbook is well set-out and easy

        to follow.

        What I don’t like about the Nikon Coolpix 8800: it’s fairly energy-hungry and a fully charged battery doesn’t last a very long time (you will probably need to buy a spare one); when the lens is extended to its longest optical focal length, photos often tend to come out more blurred than when a shorter focal length is used; in some situations, the built-in flash gun is not powerful enough; the camera has a power saving facility which puts the camera in stand-by mode after a maximum of three minutes (which is too short a time in many situations).
