Excerpt: Problems: This camera did not come with a rechargable battery or charger. That was really annoying (and hard to find)! Then the battery life is really not that long if you leave the LCD screen on for more than a few seconds at a time.
Excerpt: I've now owned my 880 for 2 years. At the time, 3.2 was about as high as you could go megapixels wise. It was a vast improvement over the Kodak 240 I was using at work. Image quality was better than my Agfa 1280.
Summary: Having used this CP880 for about 2+ yrs, I've still on the learning curve and have only scratched the surface . Although most shots are quite good with the Auto sequence, it's nice to have flexibility with manual settings.
Summary: After 2 hears of removing the lens shade manually on my Nikon 880 I will never buy another Nikon product again. Up to now, I have not found any reference to this irritating procedure in the Nikon manuals, specifications, or camera sale's blurbs.
