Hi :)
What do you think of the Nikon COOLPIX S8100?
My digital camera recently broke, and I would like to know if anyone believes this would be a good one. If you have a much better camera idea in mind inform me, best wishes.

Hi,
the panasonic LX5 or canon s95 are not bad, but if you insist on Nikon, wait a little while for their new announcement of a CoolPix 24-100mm f/1.8 model. 😀

I bought mine on Sunday, November 14th and for the money, if you can find anything equal to this camera, it has to be a stolen prototype of a manufacturer yet named. It is truly a magnificent work of photographic artistry. I'm in love.
