Nikon Coolpix P80 highlights

Packing photographic performance, intuitive operation and advanced functions into the world's most compact 18x optical zoom camera

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. 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.
