Summary: I have had 2 of these and both were only functional for 1000 pictures or less. The on/off switch has a design problem that Kodak is unable to repair correctly(even for $180). Others have found the the lens will not autofocus correctly if it is bumped at all.
Summary: This is one of the best point-and-shoot cameras which ever came out. I bought it five years ago, and still use it along-side my Nikon DSLR units. The Kodak can be fully automatic if desired, but really comes into its own when used manually or in programme, aperture or speed mode.
Summary: I bought the p880 to go along with my z650. My z650 I use while driving down the road or interstate (i.e. 65 mph) to shoot out the window. The p880 I use for a lot of close ups and family get togethers. I keep them both loaded and ready where ever I go.
Summary: This is my second P880. I purchased this one so as to have an identical camera in the event my first fails. I very much like the features of the P880, especially the zoom in and out using the barrel rotation. I would also add the existence of the view finder as a good feature.
Summary: My wife and each have a P880 and we LOVE THEM! Want to get into the great world of DIGITAL photography but don't want to be limited to the few features of a compact camera? This is the one for you!
