The Coolpix 880 (E880) Digital Camera

With the Coolpix 880, Nikon has taken the 3.3-megapixel CCD and many of the advanced features from its semiprofessional 990 model and put them into a traditional compact point-and-shoot design simple enough for anyone to use.

The Nikkor all-glass lens features a 2.5x optical zoom (equivalent to 38- 95mm on a 35mm camera) with a macro mode that focuses down to 1.6 inches. A 4x digital zoom further increases magnification at lower resolutions. Images are stored on a Type I CompactFlash card (8 MB card included). Maximum image resolution is 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, and an uncompressed TIFF mode is available (remember, however, that uncompressed images are so large that you'll need a bigger memory card to store even one full-resolution uncompressed image).

Though the camera defaults to full-auto point-and-shoot mode, it has a host of manual features for advanced photographers...

This camera is great for what I have been doing with my photography. It's compact and light for going hiking and exploring the wilderness.

I enjoy using this camera, sometimes I wish the resolution was higher, but for the most part it is adequate. I use a 256 MB card for over 150 photos at Fine Resolution (2048 X 1536). Wish it had more optical zoom, something you don't realize until your out in the boondocks and that swan is on the other side of the lake.

This camera takes great pictures. However, the lag time is horrible.
