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: 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: 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: It is a great camera - it takes excellant pictures, uses the almost ubiquitous CompactFlash media, and has a wealth of settings and options. The minuses: It doesn't come with a battery charger/ac adapter (you'll have to buy that separately), and it uses annoying batteries.
Summary: The 880 is a compact digital camera which produces excellent images. It does have its good and bad points: Good points: 1. Nice body - resembles a standard camera - viewfinder is useful except for macro when you have to use the LCD to aim.
Summary: My 1st digital, so maybe I'm somewhat biased, got a great deal (less then $500) on camera, battery, and charger was display unit, local Bxxx Bxx had close out on this model for some reason. The good: GREAT detail, 3.4 meg is fantastic, have had 8 x 10's made, very comparable to 35mm.
Summary: I purchased a Coolpix 880 two weeks ago and have been incredibly impressed with the pictures I'm able to take with it. They truly rival 35mm shots in quality, especially when combined with a good photo printer.
Summary: Recently i bought my first digital camera .It is great but rapidly depleted batteries are a problem.You have to buy special charger and batteries for camera.It would be nice to use other common battery types wit this camera. ... ...
The initial battery power message is wrong, don't waste it!

Summary: Hi guys - got this camera after much umming and erring in January, and it takes great pictures. i wanted to say a word about some of the comments here saying that the initial battery power appears to not last much longer than the initial power up.
