"Confused!"


Cathedral City, US
          

I was very happy with my Coolpix 8800, but I finally wore it out and it no longer works. I'm looking for a newer model that's fairly easy to use and that will shine in photography of roses. Color is important (particularly reds). Can anyone point me toward an appropriate successor to the 8800 for such use?

Thanks very much!

Cliff

Thats a tough question Cliff the new p7700 and p510 seem to be the modern version as the 8800, they share the same ability to use manual control and advanced flash controls. I'm not sure if they produce the same color palette but I'm sure you can adjust the color to your taste. But keh.com has some used 8800, 8700 coolpix's for sale.

I appreciate your response, Jim. I've not had any experience in purchasing refurbished camera equipment and am not familiar with keh.com. I had a look at their website and the prices are certainly attractive. However, I have no idea how long I might expect something purchased this way would likely last. It's definitely something to think about.

Keh is very reputable and they have one of the best return policies and I do believe all their products unless indicated have a warranty.

I have a P7000 that does a very nice job and from what I can tell the newer P7100 and the newest P7700 do even better. Also have you considered the V1 of the Nikon one mirrorless system it is now selling for $299 with a lens since the new version is coming out this will give you near DSLR quality at a size smaller than your 8800.

Good to know, thanks, Jim.

I looked at the Nikon One system when it first came out and wasn't particularly impressed, but will have another look at it. It's probably time for me to find the Digital SLR NIkon that I bought years ago and learn how to use it!

Thanks again.

You will find a lot of help with that around here

A friend of mine has a Nikon S8000 she bought refurbished after borrowing mine for a weekend. She has been using it for a few years without any issues at all, and she takes a lot of photos! A lot of the refurbished cameras had no problems to fix as they were bought and returned for whatever reason.
