Compared to... Samsung Digimax Pro815

Although they're not strictly directly comparable it's fair to assume that anyone in the market for a P880 might also consider the Samsung Pro815 - if only because it too has a fairly wide (28mm equiv.) lens and is in a similar price bracket. Below you will find a studio comparison between the Kodak P880 and the 8MP Samsung Pro815. We have included samples for the lowest and highest ISO settings for each camera; (ISO 50 and 400).

From a detail point of view there's little if any meaningful difference between these two cameras (both of which, interestingly, sport 'Schneider' badged lenses). The Pro815 - as noted when we reviewed it - suffers from 'turn everything up to 11' syndrome, meaning the images are over-sharpened, too contrasty and highly saturated. By comparison the P880 looks positively subdued. As both cameras have options to alter sharpness / saturation / contrast, and both have raw capture modes, I think it's fair to say that - at ISO 50 - with a bit of tweaking of the settings you could easily produce results that were nigh on indistinguishable.
