Nikon Coolpix P80
The point of purchasing a camera is to capture a moment or a collection of time to show to friends, family or reliving the memories. By researching Nikon Coolpix P80, you have stepped in the right direction. You are getting the convenience of a point and shoot but the advanced features of a D-SLR.
When shooting from the top of a mountain and using the zoom at the camera’s fullest potential you may encounter shacking. Nikon has integrated Image-sensor shift that will help reduce shacking and blurry pictures. And of course blurry photos are just not
Now, lets discuss how Nikon is trying to bridge the gap between the point and shoot cameras and D-SLR. Point and shoot camera is a simple tools to capture pictures and D-SLR are the more complex way to capture pictures. When I say complex, I mean you are able to control the focal length, how long the shutter says open and how light sensitive the camera is.
Set the camera to Manual Mode on the Nikon Coolpix p80, you are able to control everything. You can now have the ability to shoot really fancy lightning shots, poster style river pictures and more. You can set the shutter speed slow to capture cars driving at night and the lights streak across the photos. Or Speed up the shutter to capture a humming bird in flight. The possibilities are endless and most exciting part of controlling your photos are creating your own style.
