Problems: This camera did not come with a rechargable battery or charger. That was really annoying (and hard to find)! Then the battery life is really not that long if you leave the LCD screen on for more than a few seconds at a time. The flash is weak in doors, and no matter what i do all of the people in my pictures end up with red eyes!

I've now owned my 880 for 2 years. At the time, 3.2 was about as high as you could go megapixels wise. It was a vast improvement over the Kodak 240 I was using at work. Image quality was better than my Agfa 1280. (Agfa 1280 was a fantastic 2mp digital camera though, beating out the image quality of most higher megapixel cameras that came after it). I take my 880 everywhere, I use my belt camera bag as my wallet. I have had no problems with the camera, only have a few comments. It is ...

I like the camera very well (or should i say liked now i bought the coolpix 5700). It performed everytime very well, image quality is good to very good. Macro capability is really good. Very easy to use but you'll have to keep these following things in mind - if you use a lot the lcd screen and a lot of flash you'll need extra rechargeable batteries .. in the end i used 4 rechargeable batteries on one evening while taking picutures in a very dark pub.(so all the time flash and all the time ...

I just love this camera. Very good pictures indoors and outdoors. For beginners just use the Auto or preconfig modes for nice pictures. Start to experiment after a while with the P-A-M modes. In the beginning I used the LCD-viewer (like on my old SONY) a lot but now I just just the 'analog' finder and the battery last several hours. Suggestion: Buy the battery rechargestation and two rechargeble batteries. Problems: * Battery life when using the LCD-view

I bought this camera in april 2001, one year ago. Yesterday, it was stolen from my car. I have to say, i've shared a lot of memories with this camera. It served my uses well while I had it and i will miss it. the image light adjustment was fantastic as was the macro mode. There was a bit too much red for indoor images, but outdoor pictures at night were amazing when flash was off! Now that i have to buy a new camera, i think i'll probably go for the Canon S30 though, not the Nikon 885. One ...

I like everything about the camera, and especially how long the batteries seem to last. Problems: I cannot TOLERATE the oversaturations of reds and I am considering returning it for that reason.

Macro feature on Nikon 880 camera is amazing .... took some pictures of flowers the other day and when I showed it to friends and my co-workers at work they thought it was some picture out of National Geography .... picture was so crisp and clear that you can count pollen grains. I have found this camera to have quite a punch for its size and price; paid close to $345.00 including s/h for a brand new camera. Just like any other digital camera I would highly recomend getting the battery ...

After the Webcam quality Kodak I had for a few weeks, I recognized the ease of digital and bought me a Coolpix 880. I used in to the limit and are still satisfied with the results. Annoying is indeed the cap I kept forgetting and the batterie life. Don't use it for night shots as the flash is extremely poor. It did however lead me to the Olympus E10 which is a two class higher camera, Still use the Coolpix for ' snapshots' . Problems: Cover and flash. No further technical problems.
