  • Summary: As the smallest digital camera with 18X optical zoom, the Nikon Coolpix P80 faces several other models having a similar range. However, by being the smallest, the P80 states its uniqueness clearly, although one always expects compromises to acheive such relatively compact dimensions.
  • Pros: Better than average auto white-balance, Nicely saturated image colors at low ISO, Relatively good image sharpness, Generally responsive, Low distortion away from wide-angle, Good LCD visibility in bright light, Good AF in good light, Excellent macro focus, Sharp but small EVF, Good ergonomics, Multiple Auto-ISO modes, Relatively good build
  • Cons: Destructive noise starts at ISO 400 and up, Poor color acuracy at ISO 400, gets worse, While balance takes time to settle, Limited dynamic range, High barrel distortion at wide-angle, Only 97% frame coverage, Incorrect image preview, Slow AF in low-light, EVF way too dark, Pathetic continuous drive, Slow startup, Too few zoom steps

  • Excerpt: In the past few weeks, we've taken a look at Canon's , Fujifilm's and Kodak's new additions to their individual series of superzooms. It's Nikon's turn to show off their goods this time, with the Nikon Coolpix P80. With the following dimensions: 110 x 79 x 78 mm, the P80 is neither too small, nor too big – it's sized to fit your hand comfortably.

  • Conclusion: However, having used the P80 for the past two weeks my opinion has changed. The camera is light to carry, easy to use and produces clear sharp images in a wide variety of situations. More importantly two of my work colleagues were impressed enough to consider purchasing one. Now the question is should you buy this or wait for the forthcoming P90? Rumour suggests the P90 will be priced considerably higher than the P80, possibly around the £350 to £400 mark.

  • Conclusion: Nikon Coolpix P80 Megazoom digital camera To be blunt: the specifications of the Nikon Coolpix P80 created high expectations but the camera can't live up to them. The Nikon P80 is a compact Megazoom camera with a number of interesting specifications and features. However, these do not appear clearly. Perhaps too many compromises were made.

  • Excerpt: Nikon is a good digital camera brand. I began looking for a high resolution digital camera with a zoom some months ago. The Nikon P80 is the bridge between SLR and high resolution digital cameras. It makes other digital cameras look like hound dogs in comparison.

  • Excerpt: The 18x zoom covers a range equivalent to 27mm to nearly 500mm, and in-built image stabilisation should help keep those long shots steady.

Nikon Coolpix P80 Review

LAPTOP Magazine

  • Summary: Inside the Nikon Coolpix P80's lightweight body are the ingredients for a versatile camera: a powerful 18X zoom lens, optical image stabilization, lots of manual features, and a highly effective Sports Continuous mode for burst shooting. Its low-light performance and limited zoom in Movie mode are drawbacks, but it's still among the best super-zooms we've tested.
