Nikon Coolpix 885 Review

Record Modes & Screens
Typical AUTO record mode LCD screen display. The "ISO" is being displayed as a warning because the flash is disabled and the shutter speed (1/4 sec) is too slow to hand hold without camera shake which is why it is displayed in yellow. The zoom lens graph is displayed for a few seconds after the focal length has been changed.
When in the Manual mode you have complete control of the shutter speed and can select either a fully open or closed aperture. As you adjust the shutter speed or aperture an onscreen analog light meter shows you the current exposure value. In the frame above we also have the autofocus area set to manual selection mode.
The QuickReview button lets you see the last image captured in a quarter-size screen without leaving Record mode. Press the button again to make the image full screen. Tap the shutter release to quickly return to Record mode.

If the AF Area Mode is set to Manual you can select the desired focus area from one of the five target points. The default is automatic selection.
SCENE Mode Options
The Coolpix 885 can record QuickTime MOVie clips up to 40 seconds in length at 320 x 240 resolution. There is no microphone so the movies are silent. The optical zoom can be used during movie recording.
