Nikon Coolpix P80 review

Three months of experience, over 1000 pics with this camera. Very pleased overall. Images are very good for a superzoom (not stellar like with an SLR, but very useable), some barrel distortion on wide angle and IQ is fuzzy at longest focal length but overall not bad IMO. Handy, well built, flash powerful enough for everyday use in most settings. No problems with drained battery (about 300 shots limit though). Once you get accustomed to menu, you are off and running. Video is adequate for my purposes (demo on computer, not TV, etc.); and best liked feature is ability to shoot color and b&w images at same time (deep in the menu, but it's there).


None, I wish it had a hotshoe for my SB-400 though and provision for a filter.
