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. Takes nice pics but not reliable or durable enough for traveling(which is why most people buy it)!
Excerpt: The Kodak EasyShare P880 is a great camera. I have had it for about four months, and have used it for everything; from interior low light to exterior bright scenes. Using the scene settings has provided exceptional results. The Kodak P880 is my first digital, and a transition from my old Canon AE-1P SLR. It took a little time getting used to. Most challenging differences: The lag between pushing the shutter and the picture capture is still an adjustment for me.
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. The camera accepts a screw on filter which provides for lens protection. I have purchased this filter and a backup battery. On the negative side, shutter lag is frustrating.
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!
Summary: This camera is one of the easiest cameras to use, right out of the box. It is not what most professionals would call professional grade, but I would differ with them. I have yet to find anything I don't like about my P880. My picture taking runs the gammot of sports, wildlife, portrait, and point and shoot with my grand children. This is a great camera.
Summary: love the camara. i already owned this same model but had a problem with the on-off switch and i thought i could fix it myself. BIG MISTAKE! Should of had dealer do it. So I decided to buy another one. Word of advise Dont ever try to fix camara's yourself espeacially when you've never fixed one before.
Summary: I have two of these cameras since 2006 and even by today standards, P880 is an excellent camera. I recall an article in Professional Photographer magazine published shortly after the camera release date, where editor reviewed Nikon D2X and Kodak P880 [in the same magazine issue, but not side by side] and having test pictures made by both cameras on his desk, he has assumed that the better quality results were produced by the Nikon ....
