Nikon 8700 Sample photos

Sample photos taken with my Nikon Coolpix 8700. The camera is very good for macros and distance shots since the camera is the equivalent of 35 - 280 MM out of the box. IMHO, photography is 80% the photographer and perhaps 10-20% equipment. This camera allows me to do some things I was unable to do with my previous prosumer digicams. Simply showing what the 8700 is capable of. I openly solicit your comments and critiques.

Notice, based on the number of hits I will be deleting some old photos and adding new ones along the way. You can "vote" for your favorites just by clicking on the image.

Most photos here will include EXIF data so you can see exactly how I took them.

Photos have been dramatically downsized for easy online viewing.
