Photography Blog has reviewed a travel zoom digital camera from Nikon. The Nikon camera has a nice optical zoom lens starting at 30mm and it is able to record HD movies with stereo sound.

Some key features for the Nikon Coolpix S8100:
-12.1 megapixel image sensor
-10x optical zoom lens (30-300mm)
-Image stabilization
-3″ LCD screen
-1080p high-definition movies with stereo sound
-HDR imaging

Photography Blog ends up giving the Coolpix S8100 a “Recommended” rating with an overall score of 4 out of 5 possible stars. The camera scores highest on design and features, a little lower on ease of use and value for your money, while it scores lowest on image quality. What keeps the Nikon from getting a top score is that the image quality could have been better and the lens could have been a bit wider. The S8100 is better than the previous S8000, but let us hope Nikon works even harder with their next camera in this line.
