Nikon Coolpix P80 review

I also own the Canon S5 and this Nikon P80 is equal in every way except for the 18X zoom and an extra 2 MP. I dislike hearing all the negative comments on here especially of the P80 video quality. If you want t take good video, buy a video camera not a photograph camera. DUH! Also, about the ISO automatically going into the higher ranges and giving unacceptable images, did you see the feature that limits the auto ISO range to a max. of 100 or 200? Read the manual before you criticize.This is an excellent camera and you will get the images you want without carrying around 2 or 3 lenses in another bag. It is not a DSLR but a very convenient camera with loads of features if you know how to use them.

Problems:

No problems with the P80 but do wish the display would swing out and rotate like the Canon S5 IS to make it easier to take flower pictures at knee level looking down at the camera rather than having to lie on the ground.
