Summary: This review is a little too late, but may serve as a reference for other similar nikon products. 3 years after buying the camera, it still works as good as it did on day one. Takes excellent daylight pics.
Summary: This case is exactly as described. Just a light weight case with no strap. It is nice to just slip this into my purse or travel bag to save room and avoid carrying another bigger camera bag. There really isn't room to carry an extra battery or SD card securely in this case.
Summary: This is a nice bag that came with my camera, however, keep in mind and notice there is no strap or ability to fasten anything to this bag. The design is for the camera to go into the bag, and it shuts with velcro (which is secure). You then use the camera straps to carry it around your neck.
Excerpt: Extremely bad for mid-low light conditions. It cannot focus and you might have to switch to manual focus which cannot be done easily. Very disappointed with reviewers in this website who likes to give review without using ALL the functions, as I have bought it based on their reviews.
Summary: I don't normally post product reviews, but I wanted to throw in my two cents on the Nikon P80--especially considering the number of negative reviews by seemingly impatient people who used the camera for a day or two and felt compelled to return it.
Summary: I'm a Nikon fan, and saw this as a economical way of getting DSLR-like features. In particular the "super-zoom" functionality and sports shot setting -- seemingly perfect for the games my children play -- motivated me to pull the trigger on this purchase.
Summary: My interest in this camera is about obtaining mega zoom and macro abilities at a reasonable price. While this camera is classified as a point and shoot, and it certainly can be that, it does have some overides such as aperture and shutter priority and manual.
Summary: I use a Nikon D300s and a D80 all the time. And I am kind of a lens hog - too many lenses.... Plus I use a Nikon L18 point and shoot when I'm out walking the dog. The P80 is a really fine little camera. Cheap too. Incredibly long optical zoom with built in vibration reduction. It does movies too.
Excerpt: I am a beginner, The P80 was an upgrade for me from a cannon power shot SD1000. I bought this camera 3 days before a trip, took it out the night I got it to learn the features. I took some great night city skylite shots the first day I got the camera. Very easy to learn and use.
