Kodak EasyShare P880

PC Magazine
10 October 2006
  • Conclusion: The Kodak EasyShare P880 is an enthusiast camera with several fancy features and good video capabilities, but it doesn't quite cut the mustard on some of the basics.
  • Pros: Wide-angle end of the zoom gives you a wide (24mm) view. Good video capabilities, with zooming. Precise control with zoom ring.
  • Cons: Noticeable shutter lag. Picture sharpness could be better. Flash shots so-so.

  • Conclusion: The two cameras in the new EasyShare 'P' range are superficially very similar, yet in many respects they are like chalk and cheese. Where the inherent problems of a soft lens and noisy sensor meant Kodak had to process the P850 images to within an inch of their lives, the P880 has what appears to be a very good lens and a perfectly decent sensor.
  • Pros: Excellent color, good resolution, Generally very good exposure, Very useful - and pretty much unique - 24-140mm zoom range, Manual (mechanical) zooming, Manual focus ring, Sharp lens, good edge-to-edge consistency even at 24mm, Lens thread for optional filters and lenses, Lots of customization options, Comprehensive manual white balance options, Good handling and easy access to most controls, Superb range of photographic control, RAW and TIFF modes, Fairly low noise a...
  • Cons: Focus slow in low light and at long end of zoom, Flash won't fire when battery is low, but picture still taken, Occasional focus errors at long end of zoom, ISO 400 JPEGs quite soft due to noise reduction, ISO 800 and 1600 only available at 0.8MP resolution, Very slow TIFF and raw writing, Macro mode confusing and restrictive, Quick review slows down shot-to-shot time too much, Doesn't remember JPEG quality setting (defaults to 'standard') when you change shooting mod...

  • Conclusion: Overall, the Kodak P-880 will satisfy most. Its 8 mega-pixel capture and sharp lens are really where is counts, coupled with great rich colours for its class, EasyShare versatility and compatibility with Kodak’s printer dock station receives a thumbs up.

Kodak EasyShare P880 Zoom Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
7 July 2006
  • Excerpt: Designed with professional-quality Optical Zoom Lens featuring manual zoom and focus rings , high-resolution electronic viewfinder, and Proprietary RAW (RAW editing not supported on MACINTOSH operating systems), I can say it provides full creative flexibility . Like a dSLR, EasyShare P880 supports for external flash (in two different ways), conversion lenses and filters.

  • Conclusion: Kodak EasyShare P880 digital camera With the Kodak EasyShare P880 Kodak successfully launched a camera that reminds us to the SRL camera. The P-series are the cream of the crop of the EasyShare line as is demonstrated by the Kodak P880. Its high level of completeness and its impressive lens are characteristic for this camera. It is true that the design and ergonomics are a bit peculiar, but still it can be classified distinctive.

  • Excerpt: The EasyShare P880 ($599) is Kodak's top-of-the-line consumer digital camera. It features an 8 Megapixel CCD, impressive 24 - 140 mm lens, manual zoom and focus rings, full manual controls, a hot shoe, and more. If you can name a feature, the P880 probably has it. It shares many of the same features as its little brother, the EasyShare P850, a 5 Megapixel ultra zoom camera.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, Impressive 24 - 140 mm lens, Manual zoom and focus rings, Large 2.5" LCD display (though see issues below), Full manual controls and then some, RAW & TIFF image support (though see issues below), Custom button on top of camera; also, camera can store three sets of camera settings to spot on mode dial, Excellent movie mode; zoom lens can be used, Nice in-camera still (including RAW) and video editing features, No redeye, Support for external fl...
  • Cons: Performance sluggish in some areas: focusing, burst mode, RAW/TIFF shot-to-shot speeds, Mac version of EasyShare software can't edit RAW images (use Photoshop CS2 if you have it), High ISO sensitivities only available at 1024 x 768 resolution, Low LCD resolution, Camera suffers a bit from "button clutter"; I'm still not a fan of the command dial / set button combo either, Manual focus feature needs improvement, No USB 2.0 High Speed support, 32MB of built-in memory is...

Kodak EasyShare P880 Review

Digitaltrends
27 November 2005
  • Conclusion: The Kodak EasyShare P880 is a digicam designed for someone who wants many D-SLR features but isn’t quite ready to commit to interchangeable lens and a high price. The camera takes very good photographs. Still my biggest knock other than the few performance issues detailed is price. If this camera was around $500 or less it would be a really good deal. At $600, it’s another story since it’s not too far from some low-priced D-SLRs.
  • Pros: Very good picture quality; wide zoom range; RAW mode
  • Cons: Slow saving to card; expensive

Kodak EasyShare P880

PhotoReview
1 December 2005
  • Summary: Plenty of enthusiast features plus good picture quality but dynamic range restrictions and image processing artefacts may reduce user satisfaction.Kodak is targeting enthusiast photographers with its 8-megapixel EasyShare P880 camera. Sporting a fast, 5.8x mechanically operated zoom lens with both zoom and focusing rings and a large, bright LCD it provides most of the controls and functions keen photographers require.
