Hi everyone,

I am thinking of buying a Coolpix 8800, but before I do I would like to see some photos. I have the coolpix 4500 at the moment, but I am intrigued by the 10x zoom of the 8800.

Any link to photos would be appriciated.

Thank you all in advance

Frailea123:-)

Hi Partos,

Thanks for the link, that is a great help. Now I just have to save up the money for it :sad:

No offense meant to the photos here on the 8800. Is it just me or do they all seem just a hair soft on focus? I looked at the photos in the other post as well and thought the same too. I have one of these coming in the next couple of days and this concerns me. I am using a Kodak 7590 right now and I am used to seeing pristine clarity and excellent color saturation with it at 5 mp and half the price of this 8800 I just ordered.

Hi trtjazz,

Welcome to the forum :)

Re your kodak cam v. 8800.

I would suggest you do same photo comparisons with sharpness, etc set the same in both cams then post them :).

Hopefully, you have x number of days to return your 8800 if you choose to do so.

I, too, am considering the 8800.

Hi Terry and Digicamfan,

I thought same of the photos might have been croppedand maybe were too blown upbecause that.

Some were really excellent. I have seen some others, I have to see if I can retrieve the URL.

I appriciate all your help, my final decision to buy one will have to wait until after Steve has done a review of retail 8800 and hopefully posts some photos. Before I bought my coolpix 4500 I made my mind up after I read his review:-)

keep the photos coming

Gorgeous macro, Frailea123!

Your different perspective...showcases your photographic "vision".

:cool:

Thanks for the welcome and actually I've been over in the Kodak section for awhile, but started hangin' here too, because of the 8800 coming today.

I am going to test them both this weekend, with exact same shots and see what I come up with. I will post some pics later this weekend if all goes according to plan.

Awesome!

Thanks in advance for your efforts :)
