Nikon KeyMission 80 overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon KeyMission 80 is a rugged and user-friendly action camera designed for your everyday adventures.

The KeyMission 80 features a front camera that records Full HD 1080p video at 30 fps and 12MP still images in a natural-perspective 80° angle of view; and a rear camera that shoots 5MP stills. It offers features like time-lapse photography, Easy Panorama mode, auto turn-on when unclipped from its support holster, and more. A relatively large 1.75" touchscreen display on the rear allows you to set up and monitor your shots in real time as well as play them back for instant review.

The KeyMission 80 is built to withstand the elements: With no external housing, it is waterproof down to 3.3 ft, shockproof from 5 ft, freezeproof, and dustproof. Aside from being more convenient, not requiring a housing allows for cleaner image and audio capture, because there are no additional layers between the lenses and microphone and your subject. Like the rest of the KeyMission series, the KeyMission 80 uses glass Nikon Nikkor lenses, representing Nikon's commitment to this lineup.

The KeyMission 80 also features built-in video stabilization for the front camera, via a combination of optical lens shift and electronic Vibration Reduction, allowing you to capture smoother video. A free-to-download Nikon control and playback app is also included with the camera that's compatible with both iOS and Android mobile devices.

The KeyMission 80 comes with a magnetic camera holder that can be attached to your backpack strap or any other strap. The camera magnetically snaps on and off the holder, and automatically turns on when removed. It also supports many more optional KeyMission accessories for riding, watersports, and everyday outdoor activities.

The KeyMission 80 has a built-in battery that allows you to record video files up to 29 minutes long, even underwater. Files can be offloaded via USB interface or auto-transferred to mobile devices using the Nikon SnapBridge app via built-in Bluetooth.

    Nikon KeyMission 80 reviews

    KeyMission 80 Action Camera is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fastest, smallest snapshots/videos This little gem is your best bet for spontaneous photo/video capture. The included holder turns the camera on when you pull it off to shoot. The dial on the side lets you quickly choose photo or video. I did a little test to see how long it took to take out my cell phone, select camera, line up and shoot. My best was 7 seconds. This little beauty does it in 2 seconds. The view screen is small, but big enough to frame and snap. The photo and video quality is equal to the iPhone 6S. But with a 32mb class3 card, you can shoot all day! The selfie lens is a perfect 22mm for small groups. It does video with the selfie lens as well. A perfect grab-and-go camera!! Way to go Nikon!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing camera! I bought my Key Mission 80 about 2 weeks ago, and I love it. SO easy to use, so light to carry, and such great quality photos and videos. It's waterproof (within limits), drop proof and freeze proof. No need to take my big SLR or point and shoot, this camera will do the job when I'm hiking, or kayaking, or just out for a walk. The HDR mode is awesome, and the panorama mode is as easy as could be, you just pan the camera, and it does all the rest. Also has route shooting and time lapse mode, front and rear (selfie) cameras, cameras, exposure comp., white balance and more. It's very rugged and durable, and uses bluetooth to send photos to my phone. I highly recommend it. Great fun and great quality.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Focus Assist Light I am hoping Nikon reads this and makes an update... was at a museum and they told me to turn off my flash - which i couldn't do. I emailed Nikon who told me that as a point-n-shoot style camera, there is no disable feature for the flash in low light. - I covered it in two layers of electrical tape, and it still seems to take pictures just fine. But this flash makes it useless for most of the fun candid shots I like to take. My phone does not need such a light to focus - so to make it viable, this needs to be at least as usable as the camera on a phone.... I would give it 5 stars if this could be disabled.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great build & form factor. Strange holder accessory behavior First, my main complaint can be fixed w/ a software update. I have high hopes, but I'm not sure they're going to do it. Pros - build quality is great. waterproof, shockproof - touch screen! Nikon's best selling DSLRs don't have this - image/video quality is acceptable for the form factor - features are thoughtful - HDR, monochrome, vivid, PAL/NTSC - video stabilization is really nice - mic w/ + wind noise reduction mode. audio playback - snapbridge works nicely Cons - the most annoying thing is when you start recording a continuous video or time lapse in non-Route Mode and place the unit in the holder, IT TURNS OFF BY DESIGN. That's right, you can't continuously record a video while it's in the native holder. I have no idea why they did this. The only way to use the holder (to attach to a backpack, for example) is with Route Mode. Route Mode is VERY limiting because it will record exactly 100 photos (no more no less) or exactly ten 3-second videos over a time period that you choose (from 30 mins to 5 hrs). Of course, the solution for this is to come up with some other way to attach the camera. It's just kind of absurd that it's necessary to do that in order to use this thing for a safety or documentary application. - Battery life for video recording isn't great. It's going to die at 1 - 1.5 hours of recording. Maybe to be expected... Nikon doesn't have Apple battery efficiency. - The UI is not the most intuitive. For such a small screen, there are a surprising number of contexts you can find yourself in. It takes a bit of practice.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pass Nikon dropped a bomb on this camera. I own and am very happy with my my many Nikon cameras and glass. Key Mission may not be around very long due to the SnapBridge software. Very difficult to sync up with my IPhone and IPad. Other frustrations with the KMission 80 are- you cannot hook up to your computer directly. Wifi or Bluetooth only. So if you have sync problems, tough luck. Also, the battery is, if you are in the field, forget swapping out your battery. Very disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea, but need improvements. Excellent choice for everyday pictures, its small and easy to use, transferring files using the Nikon app is slow but works fine with iphone. Not very good quality pictures with low light, but I gues it was actually made for exteriors, thats the only reason I give 4 stars. Even cheaper smartphones have better indoor quality. The FOV is narrower than common action cams, so you can take better pictures with. Video has good quality but not for fast shooting. Not exactly an action cam. The flashlight is actually very useful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was intrigued by size, FOV, and control location. Wanted a more compact and durable alternative to a phone camera. After using both for the first three days of a trip, the KeyMission became my go-to camera in all but a few situations. The Nikon is faster to start up and the touch screen is responsive. The camera is fast to focus (to be fair, on par or only barely better than a phone camera). Framing a shot seems easier than with a camera phone, despite the smaller size screen. But that could also be because I am a former videographer who is used to using both eyes to frame shots - one on the finder, one on the scene. Switching between still, video and panorama modes is easier, IMO. The limited number of manual controls are fairly easy to control once you get used to the interface, though am still getting the hang of making adjustments quickly. Battery life seems good. During 11 days travel needed only 1 1/2 battery charges (total) to shoot 509 jpg's and 40 short mp4's. Should note that auto-off was left at default (2 secs), while wi-fi and bluetooth were both turned off. Not running down the phone camera battery was also a plus I sought, but that may not be important in your situation. As mentioned by others, shooting in low light is not this cameras strong suit. About the same as my iPhone 5s. A steady brace position helped to improve shots, but I imagine most newer phone cameras would do better than the KeyMission in low light situations. I never used the selfie camera, so have no idea how it performs. With an 80 degree FOV, couldn't see a reason to use the rear camera and screen. Besides, the shutter button is easier to use for selfies with the front lens aimed at you while holding the camera at slight distance. I only wish the lens bezel would accept a medium range telephoto lens. :) The KeyMission 80 does exactly what I wanted in a camera of this type: A fixed-lens camera that is smaller and more durable than a camera phone, has its own power, and is capable of taking decent shots. Being a former pro who got tired of hauling around multiple bodies and lenses (and associated gear), I'm having a blast with this camera by getting back to the minimalist approach of taking photos by using my eyes and brain. With the KeyMission 80, it feels like I'm that 8 year old kid, once again, who was excited to tell a story using his first film camera.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good, could be improved This is close to being a really good product, but a couple of things hold it back. These could probably be fixed in firmware but given Nikon's history it's probably not gonna happen. It's very small and solidly built. The included holster clip is nicely designed to go on a belt or backpack strap, and has a built-in magnet which signals the camera. Charge time is less than 2 hours when the battery is really low. The KeyMission 80 is not really an action cam. I use it like a rugged, weatherproof, quick to operate phone camera. Pull it out of the supplied clip and it's on and ready to shoot. Big shutter button. Toggle between still and video with a large, sturdy switch. Put it back in the clip and it turns off. Like a mid-range phone camera, photo/video quality ranges from very good in bright light to pretty dismal in low light. Panorama mode is easy and works well. The camera has Bluetooth and Wifi to transfer photos. The SnapBridge app generally works well to transfer photos automatically from the KeyMission, but there were a couple occasions where it didn't recognize that there were new photos. Stopping and restarting the app seemed to fix this. Videos can only be transferred via Wifi. The downsides: Expensive for what it is. I was hoping it could be used to record video while in the clip but it can't - it shuts off in the clip except in certain time lapse modes. (You can get around this by hacking the clip to remove the magnet so it won't turn off, but then it won't turn on automatically either.) Time lapse setup is easy but the resulting videos are limited to 10 seconds, which is a huge disappointment. The bright focus assist LED cannot be disabled. Even with the focus assist light, it occasionally blows focus. Because it's so small care must be taken to keep fingers out of the picture. It's not hard bare-handed but in cold weather my mittens have snuck into the bottom of several pictures.
