Kodak EasyShare P880 Digital Camera Review
**The Kodak EasyShare P880 is perhaps the most difficult to use of the EasyShares. It isn’t incredibly difficult to figure out, but its buttons are scattered and some are stiff and hard to move. The 8 megapixel digital camera is shaped like an SLR, but has many characteristics typical of a compact model. It has a large 2.5-inch LCD screen but viewing is hindered by the low 115,000 pixel resolution. The P880 supports RAW files, but Macintosh users cannot edit them. Navigation in menus is tricky with the finicky toggle. Its burst mode is more typical of a compact than an SLR and its start-up time is definitely reminiscent of slim, less expensive EasyShare models.
Still, the Kodak EasyShare P880 has some nice features. It has a wide 24-140mm Schneider-Kreuznach zoom lens that accepts telephoto conversion lenses. This versatile digital camera also has a four-pin hot shoe for flash attachments. The Kodak P880 offers the gamut of user control, a fully manual mode, a fully automatic mode, and two priority and plenty of scene modes in between. There are even three custom modes. The Kodak EasyShare P880 is meant to compete with top of the line digital cameras and low-end DSLRs, but with its $599 retail price and collection of drawbacks it falls short of its potential.
