Hey :)
What do you think of the Nikon COOLPIX S8100?
My digital camera recently broke, and I want to know if anyone thinks this would be a good one. If you have a much better digital camera idea in mind let me know, best wishes.

honestly , d7000 is not the replacement for it. it's a bit higher end. so the real D90 repacement is still pending
