Those are good pictures but my experience with that camera...the p80 is a horrible camera!!! I bought one and had to take it back because no matter what I did I got bright purple lines all over the pictures. Nikon gave me a 4 week waiting period to check it out and they found absolutely nothing wrong. I took it back to the store and traded for another p80 and got the exact same results. I tried shooting in the shade, the light, away from the sun towards the sun, not zoomed, zoomed all the way. I always got purple lines all over the place no matter what I did, even my cousin who's a professional photographer got the same result when he tried it and he knows some pretty neat tricks that's supposed to avoid that stuff. After digging around for a while I found that this has been complained about before with this camera. Now I keep it around if I want quick crappy videos but I bought a d40 which was in my price range at that time and so far have no complaints about the d40 however I have bought numerous lenses and a new off camera flash instead of sticking with the little kit it comes with. If you don't plan on doing anything serious then it might be a great camera but unless you're a pro in photo shop I'd suggest looking at something other than the p80.
If they have somehow upgraded the p80 to something better then great but I bought mine 2 years ago and it was absolutely awful, both the one I bought and the new one I traded it for. Neither worked without giving me bright purple lines all over the images. Just my personal opinion. I hope you find a camera you like.
When life gives you lemons....chuck em at whoever is giving them to you!
I don't want lemons! I want cookies!
