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...
