Summary: You can shoot quality pictures with Nikon's COOLPIX 880 3.1 MP digital camera for its' size. It also uses the large format card like the professional cameras. It is fine if you are not in a hurry since the lens needs 3 seconds to protrude and set-up from the body.
Summary: I bought this camera for $300 from a colleague about a year ago. Since then, I've used it almose constantly, and clicked more than a thousand pictures. Its a wondeful camera to have! This is a 3 Mega Pixel camera. It stores pictures in Jpeg or Tiff format.
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.
Summary: I have had this camera one year and am still impressed with the quality of it's pictures. It certainly has some flaws ( flash pictures, noisy auto focus) but anyone who claims that this camera doesn't take fantastic pictures doesn't know how to use it or has a broken camera.
Summary: I cannot say that this camera is bad but for the one year that I owned it, I keep wishing that I can attached a bigger and brighter flash for the indoor group shots. It does everything exceptionally well outdoor however, the indoor group shots is off the mark for insufficient flash...
Summary: I am happy with the Nikon 880, however, I also purchased the battery charger, rechargeable batteries, 128 meg compact flash card, flash card reader, Adobe Photoshop Elements software, stepdown ring adapter for lens filters, slide copy adapter, photo glossy paper and textbook.
Summary: I would be hard pressed to find anything negative to say about this camera. It is my first digital but have owned it for 10 months; used for pleasure plus to send photos to clients attached to email. Have not received a single durogatory comment from a client.
