Nikon Coolpix P80 10.1MP Digital Camera with 18x Wide Angle Optical Vibration Reduction Zoom (Black)

10.1 MP (Megapixels).

Zoom range
A whopping 27-486mm (35mm equivalent) range. What’s even more impressive, to me, is the 27mm wide-angle end of the focal length; it’ll be a cinch to photograph architecture, landscape and groups of people in tight spots will be a cinch.

You cannot zoom the lens while capturing video; only digital zoom is possible.

LCD screen
2.7 inches.

Image stabilization system
Nikon’s VR (vibration reduction) system for this camera is implemented via a CCD-shift mechanism.

405 g (14.3 oz), including batteries.

110 x 79 x 78 mm (4.3 x 3.1 x 3.1 in.)

There are some spectacular shots in Rob’s Nikon P80 gallery, a link to which he posted in a forum discussion. My favorite is the Heron Watching photo, which, in Rob’s words “… shows the quality of the Nikon Coolpix P80 taken at full zoom at 64 ISO …”.
