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

I have taken pictures with my camera and when I go to download/transfer them to the computer i can see some of the thumbnails but they will not open up or they open up all "distorted and unclear" I think I have a “bad” memory card but my question is “Are my pictures gone? And will I not be able to retrieve them off my memory card? “

If you are referring to the VR option verify that is ON or OFF (see page# 133). If it’s the LCD screen that is loose you will need to send it for service.

My Coolpix S8000 camera has been dead for about a month. When I hook it up to the computer to charge, the green light flashes for a few minutes and then goes off. However, the on/off button stays lit up. My computer recognizes the camera and I am able to download the pictures on it. The camera has been plugged into the computer for about four hours, but once unmounted from the computer, still will not turn on. Does this mean I need a new battery?

Answer: 
If you can download the images with the same cable, the USB cable is not the issue, make sure that the "charge by PC" option is set correctly in your setup menu.
