World’s slimmest* 10x zoom camera with wide-angle capability. NIKKOR’s extra-low dispersion (ED) glass lens ensures crisp results whether you shoot still images or high-definition movie clips and the 10x zoom offers superior compositional freedom, allowing for everything from impressive wide-angle and distant telephoto shots, to stunningly detailed close-ups in Macro Mode. The advanced flash control system delivers more natural-looking results when you shoot in low-light and the incredibly clear 7.6 cm (3-inch) high resolution LCD monitor enhances both shooting and playback. With its slim body offering exceptional portability, the COOLPIX S8000 is a wonderfully stylish way to get creative with how you capture the world.

This camera is available in black, brown, and champagne silver.

Key features

World’s thinnest* 10x zoom camera with slim 27.3 mm body.

Quick response: fast start-up and autofocus.

NIKKOR wideangle 10x zoom lens with ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass offers outstanding precision, sharp resolution and crisp results (35mm equivalent: 30-300mm).

Crisp HD (720p) movie clips with stereo sound: captures all the action at an impressive 24 frames per second.
7.5 cm (3-inch) high resolution (921-k dot) LCD monitor: offers vivid color reproduction, sharp contrast, and clear viewing with minimal reflections, even in bright sunlight.

4x anti-blur automatically counters blurred images in four different ways. Lens-shift VR (Vibration Reduction) reduces the effect of camera shake. High ISO (up to 3200 at full size) light sensitivity reduces the risk of blurred images with fast-moving subjects or in low-light. Advanced Motion detection compensates for camera and subject movement. Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically selects the sharpest of up to 10 sequential shots.

Advanced flash control system: synchronizes the flash with high ISO sensitivity for well-lit, naturally exposed results in low-light, and clear telephoto shots.

Creative Slider: instant retouch and review function. Lets you adjust the brightness, saturation and color tone of the image without the need for a computer.

Sports Continuous Mode: shoot up to 45 continuous shots at a speedy 3 frames per second.

HDMI mini connector enables playback on HD- TVs

Macro mode lets you get as close as 1 cm to a subject and capture minute details with crystal clear clarity.

14.2 megapixel resolution lets you capture outstandingly detailed images, crop creatively and produce stunningly-sharp poster-size enlargements.

EXPEED image processing system for optimum performance and maximum image quality.

Smart portrait system: advanced automatic features for perfect portraits. Smile Timer takes the shot when your chosen subject smiles. Blink Proof alerts you when someone had their eyes closed. Skin softening adjusts uneven skin tones on people's faces for smoother looking skin. Advanced Face Priority AF with in-camera Red-eye Fix lets you quickly detect and focus accurately on up to 12 faces in the frame, and corrects false eye color due to flash the instant you take the shot.

Scene Auto Selector selects the optimum Scene mode for popular photographic situations.

USB and AC compatible: can be charged using the USB socket on your computer or via a regular power outlet using the included AC adapter.

16 scene modes offer optimized settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations.
