Excellent output and trouble-free This camera is one of the most dependable that I've ever owned. Pictures are fantastic for its size and components -well focussed, excellent contrasts even in low light. Motion pictures are unbelievably good for this sized equipment, plus it is small, light and easy to carry everywhere! March 10, 2014
great camera works great despite my abuse of it I loved my S8000 I am hard on a camera and it still took awesome photos in spite of me. I lost it last week much to my dismay it fell out of my pocket when hiking. minor issues - I had repeatedly dropped it so the case has a crack on the bottom corner The on/off button is glitchy as it doesn't want to turn on The battery only wants to charge externally - this is a new issue fixed with a charger. I have a large scratch across the front lens but it doesn't show up on the photos. despite my issues it still took awesome photos and I could zoom in on wild animals and birds and snap a good photo. I would recommend this camera to anyone.. August 23, 2013
Great inexpensive Camera Has been a good Camera, Sometimes difficult picking the right setting for low and high light pics March 2, 2013
great pics, lousy camera While it takes good pics, i am sending it in to get it repaired again. The on/off switch doesn't want to work. November 14, 2012
Dropped! I have had this camera for more than a year now. It has traveled with me everywhere. Takes amazing pictures no matter what. I had the camera on my lap while driving a minivan. I stood up not remembering that it was there. It fell directly on asphalt, and in my haste I was out of the van before it hit the ground steping directly on the camera. I press the power button to see what damage I had done. All functions work perfectly! Nikon makes quality equipment. November 12, 2012

Answer: 
When the battery is fully charged there's no indicator. The battery level indicator will appear on the Top left corner of the screen showing a battery half full, this means its low and you need to prepare to charge it. Once the battery runs out of charge you will get a message on the screen "Battery Exhausted" and you won't be able to take more pictures.

I am suddenly having issues with transferring images from my S8000 to my computer. It acknowledges the camera with the tone and turns the camera on, so seems to find the device, but then doesn't find the images. The light next to the flash symbol is flashing green but that's as far as I can get. I downloaded the Nikon View NX2 software but same thing - it shows 0 pictures in que. I installed Kaspersky Internet Security Software and Malwarebytes recently and suspect a conflict but don't know what to do. Just bought the D5100 so hope I don't continue to have problems. Haven't installed anything for that camera yet. Thx for any advice/ suggestions.

This problem has arisen over the last few months.

The firmware on the camera was version 1.1 and I have reinstalled this version from the nikon website. I have already reset the camera to default settings. This problem has not been solved by this.

The camera can also now take some time to switch off.

Answer: 
Hi
Sounds like there is problem for internal power source or memory...
I would suggest asking "Support" in this section, below picture of your camera...
I believe there is some type of power source that is inside to keep date n time up to date, but I’m not positive.
Hope this helps...

Answer: 
Battery life will vary with condition of the battery, temperature and how is used. Make sure to keep the battery contacts clean since soiled contacts can reduce battery performance. Use the battery immediately after charging sin it will lose their charge if left unused.

Answer: 
Before plugging your camera to the computer and it's already ON, first press the playback button. Once it's showing a picture on the screen connect it to the computer and the picture should disappear from the screen. After you transfer all your pictures just turn it off before you disconnect the camera form the computer. Also update to the latest version for Nikon View NX2 from our website:

I have been using this camera for a while and have been very happy. But recently something happened that changed a bunch of the settings--maybe I bumped a button, who knows. But I went into the menu and reset all the settings to the default options. That fixed most of the things that had been bothering me, and I was able to change the things that I didn't like, like the buttons making noise, easily. However, every time I turn the camera on, the flash is set to no flash. Every time, I manually change the flash setting to auto and go on my way. The next time I turn the camera on, the setting will have reverted to no flash. Is there something going on that I should know about, or should I reset something else to fix this problem? Thank you!
