NikonNikon Corporation is pleased to introduce the COOLPIX 8800. The 8-megapixel COOLPIX 8800 carries a high-powered 10x Zoom-Nikkor ED lens with a Vibration Reduction (VR) System - a first for the COOLPIX range. With such quality and performance, the COOLPIX 8800 plans to lead not only the Nikon COOLPIX line, but the entire consumer digital camera market, as well. The COOLPIX 8800 is designed for serious photographers who aspire to take the highest quality images. With its 10x zoom, it also targets those who require higher zoom power and those who benefit from its fully loaded yet completely portable design. The extremely versatile COOLPIX 8800 meets their requirements, as well as demands from those who want state-of-the-art image quality.
New Nikon flagship - Coolpix 8800And for those who want to expand their options, the COOLPIX 8800 offers a range of lens converters, Speedlights and other accessories.

The COOLPIX 8800 carries 8.0 effective megapixels for ultra high-definition photography. Your image clarity is ensured because of the professional-quality, 10x Zoom-Nikkor ED lens. With its 35-350mm focal range (35mm equivalent), the lens incorporates two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass lens elements to minimize chromatic aberration and produce amazingly sharp and clear images.

The lens of the COOLPIX 8800 incorporates the Vibration Reduction System - a first for the COOLPIX range. VR automatically detects and compensates for the small camera movements that cause image blur. This offers the user the ability to shoot at shutter speeds up to three stops slower without the risk of camera vibrations blurring your image. Along with Normal Mode, which enables remarkably clear handheld shots, Active Mode helps to ensure a smoother view in shaky conditions, such as shooting from a moving vehicle. Thanks to VR, users can achieve sharp and clear images when shooting in low light or when taking handheld telephoto and macro shots. It even works with the accessory telephoto converter lens at 600mm (35mm equivalent).

The camera offers four exposure modes: Programmed Auto [P], Shutter-Priority Auto [S], Aperture-Priority Auto [A] and Manual [M]. These modes combine to give you the greatest degree of creative control possible. The COOLPIX 8800 also offers [AUTO] mode, in which the camera automatically selects appropriate exposures and shutter speeds, giving users high-quality point-and-shoot capability. And for striking images in practically any situation, the new COOLPIX 8800 features 15 versatile [SCENE] modes. Simply select the mode appropriate to your lighting conditions, and the camera will automatically adjust the aperture, shutter speed, focus, flash, contrast, sensitivity and white balance.

The COOLPIX 8800 features many advanced digital controls, such as BSS (Best Shot Selector), AE-BSS (Auto Exposure-Best Shot Selector) mode, Noise Reduction mode, Saturation Control and White Balance Bracketing. These features can be crucial to obtaining optimum image quality. Furthermore, the camera has a 5 shot buffer mode to help you more accurately capture those unexpected or fleeting moments. The COOLPIX 8800's versatility is further enhanced with handy, innovative features such as movie capability with audio and the Time-Lapse Movie Mode, which is ideal for observational recording (i.e., a bird building a nest, the progression of a construction site or the changes of beautiful landscape as the sun sets.)

A large, Vari-angle LCD monitor lets you shoot from various perspectives, as well as providing optimum visibility - even during bright daylight. The high-resolution EVF (Electronic Viewfinder) offers greater contrast and clearer images. In addition, the COOLPIX 8800's compact, lightweight magnesium (Mg) alloy body has been designed for maximum durability and portability, with a secure, comfortable grip for stability during shooting.

The new D-Lighting feature in Playback mode compensates for the underexposed area while maintaining the properly exposed area. Another new feature, Advanced Red-Eye Reduction, automatically corrects the red-eye inside the camera in most instances when using the Red-Eye Reduction mode of the built-in flash. Framing Guides on the LCD monitor offer the best means possible for achieving ideal composition, and the Real-Time Histogram display lets you select ideal exposure values while shooting. For those who desire more creative freedom when editing, the COOLPIX 8800 also offers RAW data image mode. Also available is a newly adopted JPEG EXTRA mode allowing less compression.

The COOLPIX 8800 comes loaded with all the essential accessories, such as battery and charger, A/V cable, USB cable, cordless remote controller and the comprehensive PictureProject software package.

You can also expand the photographic possibilities of your COOLPIX 8800. The camera is compatible with a host of optional accessories, including a wideangle attachment, as well as telephoto and fisheye converters. It is also compatible with a battery pack and a lens hood. In addition, the COOLPIX 8800's accessory shoe enables TTL flash operation using the Nikon SB-800 or SB-600.

This incredible array of features and quality accessories helps make the COOLPIX 8800 a truly special achievement in digital photography.

Sales release schedule: This camera is scheduled for release in October 2004.
