Good value for the price.

  • 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. And you must remember to take off the lens cap to do so or risk damage to the motor. The battery compartment gets loose with use but still provides connection. The door latch is just harder to close and open.

Digital photography is fascinating

Ray Sullivan, Amazon

  • 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. Be prepared to buy the extras to make your digicam experience practical: 2 re-chargeable Li-ion batteries and the charger; upgrade to a 64 or better yet a 128 MB CF card with card reader (supplied with my Lexar 64 MB CF card.

Watch out for that tiny flash

Paul Cheang, Amazon
10 December 2001
  • 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... the pictures of group shot look dark and a bit out of focus on the outer edge.

It's the extras that are costly...

  • 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. I would also like to buy the Epson Stlus Photo 1280 printer, but that is for the future.

Great camera - but missing a bit

Amazon Customer "ttstocks", Amazon

  • 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. (come on - 'AA' sized batteries can't be that hard to design for) These cameras eat batteries quickly enough that you really won't want to pay for the expensive alkalines or lithium ions.

A good camera with some concerns to be aware of

J. Wan "wanchob", Amazon
14 October 2001
  • 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. It grips and feels like a standard camera, which makes framing and squaring up an image easier for those trained on old film cameras. 2.

Nikon CoolPix 880 - Good, but...

Michael L. Shanks "MikeLee777", Amazon
19 July 2001
  • 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. Easy to use in AUTO Mode Easy to use in SCENE Mode The Bad: One irritating point is the "noise" the camera makes as it tries to focus.

Great camera -- a few reservations, however.

James F. Hermon, Amazon

  • 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. However, there are a few reservatins I have, mostly the result of the transition to digital photography. First, the battery. You must buy the rechargeable, and even that won't last too long.

The initial battery power message is wrong, don't waste it!

J. R. Challis, Amazon
19 February 2001
  • 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. Well - there's a weird flashing battery symbol that comes on very soon after you've loaded the camera up for the first time, but if you ignore it, and simply turn it off, it carries on going.
