The new CoolPix S8200 ups the ante of pocketable super zooms with an impressive 14x Optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens integrated into a surprisingly compact body (approximately 1.3-inch depth).

From fast-paced action shots to nights out on the town with friends, the CoolPix helps to ensure that every moment is captured. Additionally, photos and movies are composed, captured and edited easily on the bright 3.0-inch (921,000-dot) LCD display.

For even more dynamic movies, consumers have the ability to zoom during recording.
