    Default Nikon Coolpix p80?

    hello!
    any comment about Nikon Coolpix p80?









    TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the introduction of the COOLPIX P80, a new high-performance model tooled to satisfy camera enthusiasts. Built on a custom application of Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image processing concept and incorporating the precision optics of a NIKKOR lens, the COOLPIX P80 offers extended reach and advanced shooting functions for satisfying performance in a wide variety of shooting scenes.

    Outstanding imaging ability begins with 10.1 effective megapixels of sharp resolution and a new digital image processing engine that faithfully reproduces fine details and subtle tones, delivers quick response, and maintains image quality and clarity when taking advantage of extended light sensitivity settings as high as ISO 6400*2. To this it adds the clarity, precision and broad range of an 18x Zoom-NIKKOR lens that covers focal lengths from 27-486mm (35mm format equivalent). Image sensor shift VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization rounds out the set by adding extra reassurance that the results will be sharper and clearer.

    The COOLPIX P80 is a versatile photographic tool that is ready to handle a wide variety of shooting styles. Features include a well-proportioned and highly functional body design with a rubberized grip and a thumb rest for added stability. The black leather-tone finish for both the body and lens pays tribute to the COOLPIX P80’s roots as a quality Nikon camera.

    Logically placed controls are designed to simplify and streamline camera operation. Dedicated Command and Mode dials can be operated using one hand, providing easy access to shooting controls and exposure mode settings, including four advanced exposure modes that offer photographers of any skill greater shooting control. And with new Sport Continuous Mode, users can shoot as many as 30 consecutive pictures at 13 fps*3.

    A new electronic viewfinder enables accurate composition while providing important information under all lighting conditions.

    *1 Among competing models equipped with 18x zoom as of April 10, 2008 (according to research conducted by NIKON CORPORATION).
    *2 ISO 3200 and 6400 are available only for image sizes of 3M (2048 x 1536) or smaller.
    *3 Feature available only for image sizes of 3M (2048 x 1536) or smaller.

    Note: Specifications, design, product name, standard accessories, and release schedule may differ by country or area.

    Nikon COOLPIX P80 Feature Highlights

    Exposure modes that offer greater shooting control
    Four exposure modes accessed via the Mode dial provide greater control over camera operation. Programmed Auto [P] mode automatically selects shutter speed and aperture for optimal exposure. Shutter-priority Auto [S] lets the user select shutter speed while the camera sets the optimal aperture. Aperture-priority Auto [A] offers 10-step manual control over the aperture setting to let the user decide depth of field. And Manual [M] exposure mode provides full control over both the shutter speed and aperture settings.

    VR image stabilization for sharper results
    Compensating for the effects of camera shake to realize sharper results and contribute to a more reassuring shooting experience, image sensor shift VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization frees you to enjoy capturing special moments without worrying about slight hand movements. This is particularly helpful when taking advantage of the 18x zoom lens' super-telephoto focal lengths, or when shooting in lower lighting conditions.

    ISO 6400 capability provides extended shooting range
    Light sensitivity range up to ISO 6400* with manual control, along with auto control (ISO 64-800) and High ISO (ISO 64-1600) settings, creates new opportunities to take sharper, more natural-looking photos in lower light conditions, or to capture fast-moving subjects with outstanding clarity. Fixed range auto is also available, allowing you to limit sensitivity from ISO 64 to 100, 200 or 400.

    *ISO 3200 and 6400 are available only for image sizes of 3M (2048 x 1536) or smaller.

    Sport Continuous Mode
    High-speed continuous shooting settings help keep you ahead of most any action scene you wish to shoot. The COOLPIX P80 can shoot as many as 30 consecutive pictures* at 13 fps in Sport Continuous Mode. In addition, you can choose to shoot at 6 fps or at 4 fps.

    *Feature available only for image sizes of 3M (2048 x 1536) or smaller.

    Large 2.7-inch LCD monitor and electronic viewfinder
    In addition to its high quality 2.7-inch LCD monitor with anti-reflection, 230k-dots of high resolution and wide viewing angle, the P80 features the versatility of an electronic viewfinder that offers greater compositional freedom and accuracy under all lighting conditions.

    Hi there.

    I'm using this camera for the moment though going dslr next year.

    But actually there is a Nikon Coolpix P90 to replace the P80.

    Personally, the camera is rather simple to use which I think it is handy whereby some people prefer cameras not to be bulky.

    The zoom is good but trying to focus when zooming in for an object is sometimes not really nice because it tends to be less focus (blur shots) even though I'm using manual settings.

    After months of using the camera with scene mode and manual mode, I prefer the manual mode to control what I want for the shots.

    My comment on this camera is not professional because I'm a newbie in photography a year now.

    good cam to begin your journey from P&S cam to a DSLR. I used this cam b4 i got my D90 and it worked well for me. There are some limitations though... even though the zoom can really zoom damn far... good luck trying to take a pic without a tripod... hahaha other then that i have no complains about it i got mine for abt 600 bucks with quite a number of accessories... 2 memory cards, bag, cleaning kit, lanyard and mini tripod. got mine from Harvey Norman at Funan.
