    Has anyone bought this camera? .....I already own a Digital Canon Rebel
    SLR...... I know the Nikon is not an SLR.......but the reviews of the
    images it takes is provocative to this artist who often crops his images
    before painting from them........and the images I crop from the Rebel
    often get pretty pixallated when viewed on my laptop that I work
    from...(or printed out in 4 x 6" prints)............... any feedback on
    the Coolpix 8800? it worth the investment?

    First, let's try and diagnose your "problem" with your Rebel. What is the
    final size of your cropped image in pixels? What lens are you using, the
    kit lens?

    My first inclination is you just need to add a longer focal length lens to
    your Rebel, which should cost you less than what the 8800 would. What
    subject matter are you shooting? Can you post a photo, both cropped and
