Coolpix 885

 

Unlike the semi-pro Coolpix 995 (and the forthcoming Coolpix 5000), the 885 is a point-&-shoot camera, with 12 pre-set 'scene' modes for common subjects and lighting. Other exposure controls are limited to full auto, programmed and a slightly fiddly...

The Nikon Coolpix 885 isn't quite small enough to carry comfortably in a shirt pocket, but it's small enough to take with you without a second thought. Even better, it offers both point-and-shoot capability and enough features to serve as a second,...

In our collection of 3-megapixel cameras under $600, the Nikon Coolpix 885 is the clear winner. Other cameras may do better on specific criteria, but the Nikon was pretty good in every category, making it the best overall camera in its class. It has a...

Nikon Coolpix 885 review

 

The 3.21-megapixel Nikon Coolpix 885 belongs to a series of Coolpix cameras that attempts to meld the features of the most advanced consumer digital cameras with a simplicity that appeals to the point-and-shoot crowd. Although the 885 sacrifices some...

Excellent image detail; sharp, bright LCD; compact and lightweight; flexible metering, white balance, and focusing.

Sluggish start-up time and moderate shutter delay; only two selectable apertures in manual mode; no aperture- or shutter-priority mode.

Though it's a bit old, the Coolpix 885 still packs excellent image quality and solid features into a compact design.

Nikon Coolpix 885 Review

 

The Coolpix 885 was announced just in time for the IFA 2001 consumer electronics show in Berlin, at the end of August 2001. It marks an evolution to the 880 design of last year, Nikon have brought the 885 in line with the 775 with the addition of the...

Excellent metering, good colour (except for over saturated red and cyan) Sharp lens provides good resolution Low image noise at ISO 100, relatively clean and usable ISO 200 Full 3x optical zoom lens (improvement over the 2.5x of the 880) Multi-spot AF,...

Chromatic aberrations Red / Cyan can appear over saturated, can 'dominate' an image Barrel distortion at wide angle (although no pincushion distortion at telephoto) Chroma noise in shadows Average to slow startup time Corners of frame can sometimes...

Here's my rating of the Nikon Coolpix 885: (3 megapixel compact)

The COOLPIX 885, available in metallic silver and charcoal black, comes with essential accessories including a disposable 2CR5 lithium battery (the EN-EL1 rechargeable battery and charger are an option in the U.S.), 16MB CompactFlash Card, USB cable and s

The bottom line is that the Coolpix 885 is an easy to use and reasonably priced three megapixel compact camera. It yields those "Nikon sharp" pictures that have become a defacto standard since the Coolpix 950 first arrived. It will please the novice as we
