I bought my camera, second hand from Amazon's Market place for $195 and I can tell you that I have had nothing but joy! I really find the Nikon Coolpix 885 the best value for money. In spite of the camera being discontinued, it is the best investment I ever made, and it is so easy to use. The camera I have has taken over 6000 pics and still going strong. Problems: No problems encountered at all.

Piece of @$*#! Constant "SYSTEM ERROR"s! Removing battery for a minute used to fix it, so I didn't bother sending it in. Now it is totally locked up, and no longer under warranty.

Problems: constant "SYSTEM ERROR" messages eventually locked up completely often had one bright red dot somewhere in the image took ...

A friend complained about the shutter lag. Tried it. The camera seems to take the picture about 1 second after you press the button. Something wrong with the settings or something wrong with the camera? There is shutter lag on my Canon V3 and Ixus i but it is not so bad.

I purchased this camera quite a while ago but never got around to posting my review of it until now. Like all consumer digital cameras, the CP885 has its good and bad points. That said, I have been VERY happy with it. I'm so happy with the CP885 in fact, that I use it as my main "go to" camera for just about everything ... including a little studio work from time to time. That's right, I use external flashes with digital slave triggers when I need to do something with a real flash. The main ...

I enjoied a lot taking pictures with this camera. It's very compact, and it has a wonderful design. It's very easy to use and it garantees wonderful landscape picture. Every pics has got too much red and that makes the picture not so much natural, expecially about complexion. But the general performance it provides can be considered good enough. Problems: be very careful with the lens caps.

Bought camera based on sharp photos and have not been disappointed. Outstanding prints up to at least 8"x10". Automatic mode works well most of the time with Scene mode able to accommodate all but 1 or 2 (out of nearly 1000!) photos attempted. Would have gotten a "5" for value except for problems (below). Have owned for about 14 months now. Problems: Observed "reds" problem, but could correct easily in software. Biggest problem has been "hot pixels". Began noticing a few at long ...

Easy to use Features are good Good brand Problems: Shutter lag is unacceptable Take a long time to save photos, switch between playback and record mode. Auto focus is slow and sometimes cannot focus correctly. White balance is a disaster (red and red!) I will not buy Nikon DC in the future (only DC not SLR)

BAd experience with Nikon Digital. Very easy to break down Problems: MI NEFASTA EXPERIENCIA CON UNA NIKON DIGITAL En Mayo de 2002 adquirí una Nikon Coolpix en el conocido establecimiento de fotografía “ARPI SERRA” de Barcelona. Al año de su compra, la cámara cayó de una altura de 42 cm al suelo. La cámara no presentaba ningún daño externo y al accionar la puesta en marcha “funcionaba”: la pantalla digital mostraba la imagen, enfocaba, reproducía las imágenes grabadas. Pero al accionar el ...
