    Anyone?

    I have wanted to see what the A80 is like for a while now, so I thought maybe someone would want to trade for a little more high-end, and more manual camera. I have a Nikon Coolpix 4500. 4mp. Also compact flash so you can use any card you have. Comes with 2 add-on marco lenses, all original cables, charger, extra battery, original manual, original box and aftermarket case. Camera has the ability for many add-on's from telephoto lenses to speed lights and more.

    Here is a review of the camera...

    Here are some pics I have taken with it...

    I have a nikon 4500, great camera. I don't understand why you would want to trade it.

    I love it, just always curious about the A80... I know it's less of a camera, but you know what they say, curiosity killed the cat... :dunno:

    Buy the A80. Shoot with it for 13 days and prove to yourself that the Nikon is a better camera and then return it.

    Digredi the 4500 is hella big compared to the A80. I've heard nothing but good

    things about Nikon. I was taking a look it while I was in search of the S500.

    Why don't you keep your cam and buy the A80 :dunno:

    I'm debating now A80 or S410 :hs:

    I would just buy the A80 and see what I think, but I just don't have the cash to go do that... :hs:

    But WHAT are you trying to find out??!?!
    its lower quality in terms of everything, image resolution, battery life, features...etc.
