Go Wide with the Kodak Easyshare P880 zoom digital camera. The innovative Kodak Easyshare P880 zoom digital camera brings in-demand Kodak technologies and features to serious photographers. Teh P880 provides more expansive picture-taking capability with a 24-140mm (35mm equiv.) wide-angle, f/2.8 - f/4.1, professional-quality SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON zoom lens. The 24mm wide angle setting is ideal for landscape photography, allowing a person to get closer to subjects, while contributing to greater sense of place by pulling in foreground objects with greater depth of field. It?s also ideal for interior photography, where barriers such as walls typically make it difficult to get all desired subjects into a shot. Creative photographers can also shoot with this wide perspective for unique portraiture, or to capture a greater scenic expanse for later cropping.

With the same integrated lens, users can also optically zoom up to 140 mm (5.8X) using the manual zoom ring for precise framing. Achieve accurate focusing, even in low light conditions, with the selectable 25-point, advanced, hybrid Auto Focus system or via the manual focus ring. Experience enhanced, flexible lighting control via the hot shoe flash connector, plus the PC sync port for off-camera flash options.

The P880 model offers the freedom to select multiple shooting modes, including program, aperture and shutter priorities, fully manual, and custom modes. For rapid camera adjustments, dial-in multiple pre-set scene modes or switch to automatic mode.

Video takes on a new dimension with the Easyshare P880 camera - a function not available in dSLRs. Capture VGA video at 30 frames per second (Motion JPEG compression) with the unique ability to use full optical zoom, then trim, cut, splice and merge clips on the camera. Even extract individual video frames as JPEGs at 640 x 480 resolution - presenting an ultra-high-speed alternative to the camera?s multiple burst modes (first/last/time lapse burst) - which can then be shared and printed up to 4 x 6 inches.

For the first time, Kodak has added RAW file support to its Easyshare camera line to enable more post-capture flexibility for enthusiasts. These files allow for in-camera JPEG and TIFF extraction, as well as RAW editing within new Kodak Easyshare software v5.1. The new Kodak RAW format uniquely embeds a dynamic JPEG within the file, permitting rapid RAW file viewing and organization in the software, without requiring RAW conversion.

Additional highlights include a live histogram with highlight and shadow clipping for immediate on-camera exposure assessment; a 2.5-inch, high-resolution LCD; a 237,000 pixel electronic viewfinder with diopter; a high-capacity lithium-ion battery; shutter speeds ranging from 16 - 1/4000 second, plus a bulb setting; one-push custom white balance; digital red-eye reduction; and a manually-raised pop-up flash. Using the P880 with the new P20 Zoom Flash will provide even greater lighting control. At a weight of only 19.6 oz. (556 g), including battery and SD card, with a compact body (4.6W x 3.8H x 3.6D in.), including lens, the camera is highly portable while providing an excellent in-hand fit and feel.

Comments about Kodak Pro 880 Digital Camera - 2.5'' LCD:

The camera is great I have a small child and use it many time just for point and shoot, but also nice for portraits and landscape shots. the sport setting allows me to take great pictures even though the baby is not always still. The 8MP for the price is just amazing. resolution is great even on poster prints. I wish it had more optical zoom, but lenses can be added with an adaptor.

Comments about Kodak Pro 880 Digital Camera - 2.5'' LCD:

With the new filmware the camera is pretty quick. The RAW format has limited settings. I found the quality to be great. I love the SLR style zoom. Great rechargable battery set up, but I did buy an extra battery just in case. Over all a great camera at a great price.

Comments about Kodak Pro 880 Digital Camera - 2.5'' LCD:

This is an excellent prosumer camera. Kodak is very much underrated for their advanced amateur/prosumer cameras. With the new firmware, the speed of the camera is actually pretty good (certainly much better than you see in most of the reviews, which were done with earlier firmware and/or written by people who have an attitude about Kodak as a brand). As far as the camera itself, it produces EXCELLENT high-resolution, detailed images, which easily rival or exceed anything less than a good DSLR camera. At lower ISOs, you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference from a DSLR. Even at ISO 200 the image quality is still really good, unless you're just out looking to be extremely picky. I imagine even 400 would be fine for some things, depending on what you're trying to do. And as for the accusations that the camera is not good in low-light situations: That's nonsense. This camera has excellent sensitivity, and can take great photographs, even in low light. Focusing (on the newer firmware) isn't even bad (slower than in daylight, of course, but that's true of any camera), and the image quality is still very high. Now, the tricky part is that in order to compose the shot in very low light (and I don't mean just getting to be dark, because it does fine in that, but I mean VERY low light, like the middle of the night with no lights around) it has trouble showing you on the EVF what it is looking at. This doesn't mean the imager doesn't see what is out there; it does. And when you click the shutter, you'll capture it just fine, if you know how to use the camera. The trick is composing the shot, in that low of light. Because while the EVF/LCD gains up very nicely in most low-light, when it's pitch black out there it is just too much for it to gain up enough to let you see it really well (which is true of any digital camera with an EVF or LCD out there). I think those complaints are unfair. Honestly, if you get used to having an EVF camera, you'll find that the EVF is a tremendous advantage in almost all situations, and even in low light, you'll learn how to frame the picture to get a good shot. Overall, this camera is probably the best deal going right now for a serious camera at the prosumer level that can deliver everything that this camera can deliver. Absolutely highly recommended!
