Coolpix 880 Review

By Thom

  • Excerpt: My bottom line may be surprising to some of you: if you can live with the bad battery choice and missing flash features, the Coolpix 880 is actually a better handling camera than the 990, and in my tests, produces ever-so-slightly better results.
  • Pros: You lose just a bit of reach (and lens speed) at the telephoto end. The 990 zooms to 24mm (115mm equivalent for you 35mm users), while the 880 only makes it to 20mm (95mm equivalent)., The aperture drops to f/4.2 at the telephoto end instead of f/4 on the 990. Worse still, you only have two "real" aperture choices at any zoom setting., You lose a bit of close focus (the Coolpix 990 gets down to 8" while the 880 doubles that)., No shutter-prefered exposure mode., No co...

  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Nikon Coolpix 880: (3 megapixel compact class) What can I say? The 880 is simply an excellent digital camera, it takes excellent pictures and has every feature you'd ever need, things that may not seem useful at first but you'll grow into using. For many buyers that was the attraction of the 990, plenty of photographic features, well Kudos to Nikon because instead of stripping the 990 down to produce the 880 they IMPROVED IT!!
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, class leading at this size, Good colour balance, good white balance, A baby 990 without losing any flexibility, New menu layout more logical, Excellent manual controls: focus, exposure, white balance, Control over internal algorithms: image adjustment, sharpening, Great new Quick Review mode, Excellently implemented SCENE modes, perfect for beginners and more established users alike, Fast processing, very fast shutter lag, good internal buffer...
  • Cons: Limited aperture options: just two apertures, Some chromatic aberrations (although less than the 990), Barrel distortion at wide angle, Low light / long exposure noise, Red channel noise, Startup time a little slow, Very noisy focus / lens extension, No flash sync connector, LCD would benefit from an anti-reflective coating, TIFF not ideal for uncompressed (can we have a CCD RAW in the next Coolpix?), Nikon's Lithium rechargeable should be a standard accessory, not op...

  • Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix 880 is often referred to as the "baby" Coolpix 990. After all, it does have the same 3.34 Mpixel CCD and almost the exact same functionality, but for less money ($799, street priced under $700). The most noticeable difference between the 880 and 990 is the body -- the 880 has a body that reminds some of the Olympus C-2000/3000 series, while the 990 has its trademark swiveling lens.
  • Pros: Every manual control you can think of, Uncompressed TIFF mode, Well-designed controls and menus, Great playback mode, Excellent macro shots, USB support

Kipróbáltuk: Nikon Coolpix880

  • Summary: Sok gyártó készít úgy digitális fényképezőgépet, hogy elkészíti a csúcsmodelljét, majd kiadja annak butított, olcsóbb változatát. Ez a taktika nem minden piacon válik be. Úgy tűnik a Nikon minden termékét a csúcskategóriákba szánta.

Фотопроба: Nikon Coolpix 880

  • Conclusion: Общее впечатление от работы камеры: качество снимков отличное (для этой категории цифровых фотоаппаратов), богатое и удобное программное меню, хорошо и точно работает дисплей, небольшие и почти незаметные задержки (от нажатия до срабатывания) при съемке, относительно дорогая батарея питания, малый вес (как плюс так и минус), бедный выбор диафрагм.

  • Excerpt: Этакая дюймовочка от Nikon действительно имеет ряд странностей -- по крайней мере, она требует значительно больше внимания и ухода, чем большинство обычных "point-and-shoot" камер -- но зато она предоставляет и значительно больше возможностей, и гораздо более высокое качество снимков.
