READ well before you jump EN...LOLOLOL You're right the second time !! LOL The wide angle lens on the 6490 gives the photos a sharpness and clarity that the normal lens just can't quite equal!

Hi Jim,

The wide angle advantage (24–140 mm) of the P880 is why I prefer it to the P850 along with the options of a hotshoe and a PC flash sync. I like to use flash to the range of the P20 or my 622.

Talk to you soon,

Nice photo? Do you have or plan on getting a TCON for your P880? If so let me know how it performs for you. I want one of the P series but don't know which one yet? I kinda want the best of both worlds.

Bursie, if you're going to stick with Kodak, I'd get the P880. You can always slap a teleconvertor lens on that puppy when needed. But I would also sit down and objectively brainstorm about what individual performance characteristic is most important to you. Some cameras excel in areas where the Kodak cameras are just okay. Be honest, and if that little voice in the back of your head says "well I MIGHT need that feature some day", tell it to shut up.

BTW... is that your "party boat" that you take out on the lake? I'm impressed that your photographic skills have managed to make it look really HUGE!

Hi Bursie,

Thanks for the comments. Yes I plan to get a TCon, I am leaning toward the the Kodak. I would go with the Olympus but i believe there are some limitations with the Olympus TCon, and since I really wouldn't use my P880 for sports or nature photography I think I am beter off with the Kodak optics. I probably will one day get a dslr but that doesn't mean I won't get a ton of use out of the P880.Back when I was in the Navy (1979-1982) I had two cameras, a Nikon F and a tinyclam shell olympus pocket camera, I ended up using the olympus constantly all over the world because of its excellent optics and its portability. I see the p880 as a great utility camera with some advanced features.
