Nikon Coolpix 885 review

The only good thig I can say is that this camera is relatively easy to use. I previously borrowed a Sony DSC-F505 for a couple of weeks and use a Kodak DC290 at work. The Nikon is more compact than the Sony. However, image quality on the Nikon is below average. The Sony and Kodak both had sharper images.

The unit I bought was defective so my estimation if the image quality may not reflect the quality of a properly functioning unit.


I bought this camera just before a trip to CA. Viewing the images on a computer showed a discolored cluster of pixels on each image. Man was I pissed. I cotacted Nikon online about the problem but didn't get a response after five days. I returned the camera and am very dissatisfied with the camera's quality and Nikon's lack of response.
