Nikon Coolpix S8 Digital Camera Review

Coolpix S8 has longer battery life than Coolpix S7 and it is a bit lighter. The LCD is 5 inch smaller. Another difference, less important, is the fact that the S8 comes with the COOL-STATION MV-14 and the S7c and S7 come with the COOL-STATION MV-15; S8 comes bundled with the Dock Insert PV-10 and the S7c and S7 with Dock Insert PV-11. Otherwise, it has the same wonderful special functions and features: BSS (Best Shot Selector), D-Lighting, Electronic VR (image stabilization), Face-priority, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, One-touch portrait button, Pictmotion.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
