My First Camera !!! My dad gifted this camera to me in my college days. I was impressed by the image quality of this camera. It has similar functions and features of a SLR camera and got to learn a lot about photography through experimenting with this little masterpiece..!!! My love for Nikon cameras took a one step ahead and now i have purchased a Nikon D5100 SLR camera a year back. Lots of similarity in functions but as you know, there is a difference between Audi TT and Audi R8 Ultra.. !!! June 28, 2013
Nikon P-80 I've had my P-80 since it first came out. It is a tough no nonsense camera that has enabled me to take some excellent photos over the years. I paid a lot for it, but all these years later I am still more than satisfied. Great camera. December 7, 2012
awesome camera My CoolPix 100 is a great camera! I can capture great wildlife and outdoor shots in a moment which is just what I need. I can't recommend this product highly enough. June 29, 2011
Great camera! This is a great all around point and shoot. I have used it for three years and within that time have grown to understand all of its components. It's a truly amazing camera that I have had NO trouble with whatsoever. Know how to adjust ISO settings indoors and outdoors and you'll do fine. May 23, 2011
Excellent We have had the P80 for about three years now and it has been excellent! It has "big camera" features built into a small frame. Image quality is very good, battery life is long, has a setting for almost every purpose. January 21, 2011

Answer: 
It should be 52mm.
I would take your P80 to your local camera shop to make sure the 52mm filter fits.

Hope this helps,
