Nikon Coolpix 880

 

Compact and easy to handle, and has more controls than the Space Shuttle.

The Coolpix 880 is a good choice for professionals and serious amateurs who understand the fine points of photography and want the maximum possible control over camera settings.

Nikon Coolpix 880 2048X1536 3.34MP 8MB Camera Review - PCWorld

 

Its small size, impressive images, and surfeit of controls make the Coolpix 880 a good choice for professionals and serious amateurs who understand the fine points of photography.

Please note: this camera is not available yet, pre-orders are being taken.

Excellent image quality, class leading at this size ; Good colour balance, good white balance ; A baby 990 without losing any flexibility ; New menu layout more logical ; Excellent manual controls: focus, exposure, white balance ; Control over internal...

Limited aperture options: just two apertures ; Some chromatic aberrations (although less than the 990) ; Barrel distortion at wide angle ; Low light / long exposure noise ; Red channel noise ; Startup time a little slow ; Very noisy focus / lens...

What can I say? The 880 is simply an excellent digital camera, it takes excellent pictures and has every feature you'd ever need, things that may not seem useful at first but you'll grow into using. For many buyers that was the attraction of the 990,...

Nikon Coolpix 880 Review

 

This time last year Nikon were readying the Nikon Coolpix 800, a quick progression from the Coolpix 700, which in turn had taken the guts of the 950, made the body smaller, removed the swivel and added a fixed (in the case of the 700) and a 2x zoom...

Coolpix 880 Review

 

My bottom line may be surprising to some of you: if you can live with the bad battery choice and missing flash features, the Coolpix 880 is actually a better handling camera than the 990, and in my tests, produces ever-so-slightly better results.

You lose just a bit of reach (and lens speed) at the telephoto end. The 990 zooms to 24mm (115mm equivalent for you 35mm users), while the 880 only makes it to 20mm (95mm equivalent)., The aperture drops to f/4.2 at the telephoto end instead of f/4 on...
