Nikon Coolpix P80 review

I am a beginner, The P80 was an upgrade for me from a cannon power shot SD1000. I bought this camera 3 days before a trip, took it out the night I got it to learn the features. I took some great night city skylite shots the first day I got the camera.

Very easy to learn and use. To be honest I never thought I could take some of the photo's I have. I have taken some great shots at football games from 60 rows up and some great landscape shots as well. The zoom is great!

I have had some trouble with up close photo's of people. Some of that might be me. That is when I pull out the cannon power shot camera.

Overall I think it was a great buy. In fact I would have never been on this website if I would not of bought this camera. It made me believe taking photo's was fun.


must have a tripod for zoom over 18x pictures get shaky. Tripod does fix that.
