Nikon Coolpix P80 review

 

For megazoom shooters, the Nikon Coolpix P80's 18x zoom, 27-486mm-equivalent f/2.8-4.5 lens likely sits at the top of the list of the P80's attractions. The range provides a good combination of wide-angle and telephoto views at relatively wide maximum...

Optically stabilized, wide-angle, long zoom lens; comfortable shooting design; voice annotation; time-lapse mode.

Poor noise handling above ISO 200; no raw support; relatively slow performance.

One of the better 18x megazooms, nevertheless you should consider the Nikon Coolpix P80's sluggish performance before you commit to it.

Nikon Coolpix P80 Review

 

At first glance the Nikon Coolpix P80 looks pretty much like a true digital SLR camera, with a chunky, rubberised handgrip, large lens barrel, pop-up flash and eye-level viewfinder. If you lined it up alongside DSLRs ...

The Coolpix P80 is an excellent first attempt at a super-zoom camera by Nikon, but it's ultimately let down by image quality that is worse than some of its main rivals. Nikon have worked hard to ensure that the P80 is competing on a level playing...

Nikon Coolpix P80 Digital Camera - First Shots - The Imaging Resource!

 

Coupled to this lens, the Nikon P80 features a 4:3 aspect ratio, 1/2.33" CCD image sensor with 10.1 effective megapixel resolution - plenty for cropping while still leaving enough resolution for a good-sized print. If you feel limited by 4:3...
