Nikon Coolpix P80 review
I bought this camera, in spite of some negative opinions. All I can say is, at least read manual, before making some decisions. Pictures taken in single and contionuous mode are brilliant, optics and VR works perfect even at maximal zoom. Camera starts qiuck (if welcome screen is disabled) and shoot to shoot time is good as well. As it's mentioned several times there, it's not a SLR, so don't wait same performance. It's not typical point and shoot camera as well. Read manual before, use limited ISO option, distortion control and other options for getting brilliant results.
Like all non SLR cameras, there is a noise at high ISO, but as I mentioned it can be fixed by limiting maximal ISO. It's the only problem for this brilliant camera.
