Kodak EasyShare P880 Zoom Digital Camera Review

Designed with professional-quality Optical Zoom Lens featuring manual zoom and focus rings, high-resolution electronic viewfinder, and Proprietary RAW (RAW editing not supported on MACINTOSH operating systems), I can say it provides full creative flexibility. Like a dSLR, EasyShare P880 supports for external flash (in two different ways), conversion lenses and filters. With Kodak EasyShare P880 you have plenty of options: magnify with pan, fast scroll, multi-up, multi-select, slide show, album, protect, image storage, copy, highlight clipping, histograms, dates and time, image info, view all or selected, edit stills and videos (crop, resize), tag for e-mail and Favorites, red-eye reduction.
The photo quality is impressive (accurate color, low noise and purple fringing, and just the right amount of sharpening) and the movie mode excellent (you can zoom all you want during filming, with sound and no time limit).
Other features regarding the usability of this robust body, mostly made of plastic, digital camera from Kodak include: A/V output (NTSC or PAL, user-selectable), exclusive KODAK Camera Dock/Printer Dock interface, digital (USB 2.0 full speed) connector, PIMA 15740 picture transfer protocol.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
