Hi! I've been doinga lot of reading here in the past month or so and yesterday I got my 8800. Had some fun with it in the afternoon and you can see the results here: http://www.myhoyas.com/Niclas%20foton.htm (The 3 top photos were taken by my brothers Canon S2 IS.) My old camera was a Samsung Digimax V4 and I've loved it most of the times, but with this 8800 it was "love at first shot"!

Hey there and welcome. I have had a Nikon E8800 for over a year. It ia a great camera. It is a shame they have discontinued it but I think it was taking business away from their DSLRs.... I love the camera but it has a few quirks. The photo of the cat would be one that I suspect was hard to auto focus on. Have a great time. I love my camera and have taken over 5000 photos so far.

Nice close ups with a great camera. I do have the Coolpix 8400, the little sister of the Coolpix 8800. While the CP8800 looks robust like a tank, you should clean the retracting lense tubes shortly with your hand before you turn off the camera. Otherwise you may get the infamous and very costly "system error" after while. There are some reports about this system error in this forum.

Hi ! I agree...it's a great camera, even after a year and a half. I prefer outdoor photography and the long zoom and close up ability make it a winner for me. I think you'll be happy.

I've attached a pic of the blossoms in front of my house. This quality satisfies me, but maybe I'm not critical enough ?
