Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"So 6 batteries latter I still had the same problem."
_
"The only complaint that I have is the battery life."
_
"They said my batteries were no good and that i would have to wait for a system update for the camera."
_
"Well - there's a weird flashing battery symbol that comes on very soon after you've loaded the camera up for the first time, but if you ignore it, and simply turn it off, it carries on going."
_
"The minuses: It doesn't come with a battery charger ac adapter (you'll have to buy that separately), and it uses annoying batteries."
_
"Recently i bought my first digital camera .It is great but rapidly depleted batteries are a problem."
_
"Well - there's a weird flashing battery symbol that comes on very soon after you've loaded the camera up for the first time, but if you ignore it, and simply turn it off, it carries on going."
_
"I am happy with the Nikon 880, however, I also purchased the battery charger, rechargeable batteries, 128 meg compact flash card, flash card reader, Adobe Photoshop Elements software, stepdown ring adapter for lens filters, slide copy adapter, photo glossy paper and textbook."
_
"(come on - 'AA' sized batteries can't be that hard to design for) These cameras eat batteries quickly enough that you really won't want to pay for the expensive alkalines or lithium ions."
_
"Deciding factors: -Technical adjustability -Metering system -Video mode (it's debatable whether I miss audio) -CF slot (compat with my other device and easy PC-Card adapter) -3M pixel -2CR5 battery (can purchase anywhere and same as my 35mm SLR) -Size, size, sizeStill happy with: -Finite control -CF memory -Size -Durability -Easy white-balance calibration (when auto won't do) -Image quality!"

Image:
"The base auto mode makes too many compromises, and results in images which are just off."
_
"I take a lot of pictures and the battery life in this particular camera is very short, so I can either use the rechargable batteries (which can be a problem in traveling), purchase a number of expensive photo style batteries or another third party battery supply pack (cumbersome)."
_
"It grips and feels like a standard camera, which makes framing and squaring up an image easier for those trained on old film cameras.2."
_
"It is a bit pricey - I think that it would sell quite well, were it [...] cheaper...Still it is a nice camera with good technicial features, and capable of producing beautiful images."
_
"The 880 is a compact digital camera which produces excellent images."
_
"Deciding factors: -Technical adjustability -Metering system -Video mode (it's debatable whether I miss audio) -CF slot (compat with my other device and easy PC-Card adapter) -3M pixel -2CR5 battery (can purchase anywhere and same as my 35mm SLR) -Size, size, sizeStill happy with: -Finite control -CF memory -Size -Durability -Easy white-balance calibration (when auto won't do) -Image quality!"
_
"Though this camera, like all other digital cameras, does not perform particularly well under low-light conditions, the resolution and clarity of the images is incredible if you give the camera a decent amount of light!"

Photo

Photo:
"The photos are super sharp; the color is amazing; and it's fast, compared to other digital cameras."
_
"It is my first digital but have owned it for 10 months; used for pleasure plus to send photos to clients attached to email."
_
"Also, I used the Indoor Party scene and the photos came out GREAT."
_
"I wanted a camera that was compact, took good photos and easy to adjust the settings, and I'd say that the Nikon CoolPix 880 comes pretty close."
_
"There are many features on this camera, including pre-set scenes that adjust light color speed for those who just want to point-and-shoot and not worry about the settings - I took this camera on a trip to Mammoth Mountains and took GREAT photos in the snow (There's a scene for snow beach)."

Quality

Quality:
"I'm a bit dissapointed with the so-called SLR-esque qualities, but this could be through my only just beginning to stray off autofocus (it's a complicated wee thing)."
_
"I tried higher quality modes (e. g. fine & high) with mediocre results."
_
"Excellent picture quality and colors, even indoors and under fluorescent lights."
_
"I would rather get Olympus digital camera with high quality, nice features and lower cost."
_
"They truly rival 35mm shots in quality, especially when combined with a good photo printer."
_
"On the very positive side, image quality is fantastic and the macro feature works great."
_
"The quality of the pictures and the ease of control is almost like night and day in comparison to my prior digital camera."
