10.2 megapixel Nikon DX format CCD imaging sensor: Effectively optimized by Nikon to deliver a wide, dynamic range, producing outstanding images with high resolution and vivid detail yielding 3,872 x 2,592-pixel files.

Instant 0.18 sec. start-up with fast 80ms shutter response: With a power-up time of a mere 0.18 seconds and a shutter release time lag of only 80ms, responsiveness is extraordinary.

Up to 2,700 images per battery charge: * High-efficiency power systems featuring reduced power consumption and real-time fuel gauge with Nikon's EN-EL3e lithium-ion rechargeable battery.

In-camera image editing with retouching menu: Highly versatile in-camera editing features include: Nikon D-lighting, red-eye correction, image trimming, image overlay, monochrome black and white, sepia and cyanotype along with skylight, warm tone and custom color filter effects.

Seven digital vari-programs plus programmed auto with flexible program, shutter-priority auto and manual: Digital vari-programs include: auto portrait, landscape, macro, close-up, sports, night landscape and night portrait, each of which adjust for optimal results under varied conditions—automatically.

Large, bright 0.94x viewfinder: Optical glass viewfinder features large (0.94x) magnification making composing frames easier while overall viewfinder brightness makes low-light photography possible.

*Achieved under the following test conditions: Fully charged EN-EL3e battery; temperature of 20°C/68°F; Zoom-Nikkor AF-S DX 18-135mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED lens; continuous shooting mode: continuous-servo autofocus; image quality set to JPEG BASIC; image size set to Medium; shutter speed 1/250 second; shutter release pressed halfway for three seconds and focus cycled from infinity to minimum range three times with each shot; monitor turned on for five seconds after six shots and then turned off; cycle repeated once exposure meters turned off.

Dependable with great functionality I've used this camera since I bought it in 2007. It has been great for shooting in bright light and low light. The camera is sturdy and dependable in any weather condition. I especially like how quick and easy it is to switch between modes and the fact that each mode has a variety of options that can be changed to my preferences. All in all, a great product. August 19, 2012
A great camera,the bestD-SLR camera I have own. I also had shutter problems with my D80 .I had to have it rebuilt after less than 2 yrs of services. over all the camera is great in all respect. I love the camera.no other problems. August 11, 2012
Fabulous camera! I purchased my D80 in 2007 and haven't regretted it ever. A wonderful camera with more than enough features to keep me busy for years to come. I previously owned a Nikon FE for 26 yrs but felt an upgrade to digital was necessary to keep up with the Joneses. I have taken thousands of photographs with no glitches or unwanted surprises to date. In this day and age when people desire and demand more megapixels I must say unless you want to enlarge your photos to 16X20 or billboard size this camera is all you need. I recently purchased a D70 as backup. There are stark differences between the two, but I am more than happy with the them. I do highly recommend a speedlight also (SB-600 - SB700 - SB-800 or SB-900) to provide more than adequate light to spruce up the photos you take. Although I must say the "onboard flash" on the D80 does a great job of getting the job done. I love this camera. July 2, 2012
Super The D80 has served me well for over 5 years. It has performed well in all weather conditions and has servived much heavy use. I have used thus camera A LOT and it is still going strong. If you can pick one up used, and in decent shape, do so. The prints that have been blown up to 17"x20" look really good. The only downside, and it is minor, is that the one I have shoots a little dark on auto, which can be easily ajusted. June 30, 2012
The Nikon D80 Does It All....Without Killing Your Back! I went from a Nikon N55 to an F100 then to a D100 in the mid-2000's. However, a few years ago I wanted to upgrade to a better dSLR and especially one that enabled ISO 100 for deep saturation and slower shutter speeds for landscape photography. During my research I came across the D80, which had the features I was looking for at a very reasonable price. This camera could also take just about every Nikkor lenses ever made, so my decision was made. Well, the D80 has proved to be one of the best cameras I've ever used and even with the battery pack/grip, it is still a light camera and easy to carry around all day. I have both an 18-105mm VR and 70-300mm VR lenses that I use for outdoor shooting and a Nikkor 20-30mm f/2.8 for indoor event shoots and the success rate of shots in very, very high. The camera focuses fast, and sometimes I just put it on Auto mode instead of A or P when I don't want to think about anything but getting the fleeting shot. I've also used the camera for a few paid shoots and that's where the ISO 100 really becomes indispensible....beautiful saturated colors and wonderful skin tones. The color settings on the camera can be set for different levels of saturation too. I used the Nikkor 18-105mm for studio portraits with a few strobes and the Nikkor 20-30mm f/2.8 with an SB-600 for a couple of event shoots I did. I just love the D80, and it doesn't break my back in weight either. And I wouldn't even entertain the thought of using any other lenses but Nikkor with this, or any other Nikon dSLR. June 6, 2012

Answer: 
Like two others who have answered, I use a 16GB SDHC card. My brand is SanDisk, and I have had no problems to date. I would not use my SD card of any size for long term storage. Always back up your valuable photos in at least two places.

Answer: 
Sound like your using the old Nikkor AF lens. If this is so, you will need to turn the Aperture to 22, then install the lens to your D80. They will not meter if the lens are set other than the smallest aperture (22).

I sold all my Canon gear and repurchased Nikon because I was told Nikon is simply the best. About a week ago I got my brand new D80 and 300mm lens from Amazon. Everything was new in the box. Everything appears to work fine with one exception. I am missing a part. My new D80 has no cover on the flash hot shoe. I was told my a local dealer that the part is BS-1. I can not find anyone locally who has this item or is even willing to order it. Seems it is too insignificant. I called Amazon and they tell me there is nothing they can do and I should call Nikon. Well here I am. I need a BS-1. I paid almost $1000 for my new Nikon gear and so far all I have gotten is the run around. Canon would simply have sent me the part with an apology. I hope I did not make a big mistake going with Nikon.

I have owned two Nikon D50 for over five years and early on in the process I lost the covers on the flash hot shoes and I have not missed them. I suspect that the situation with the D80 is the same. I just got my D80 today and it did not have the cover.

Answer: 
either lens will work. the af lens does not have the built in motor in the lens. the afs lens does and should focus faster. but the afs lens is no longer in production so the new af will work fine. these lens do not have vr if u need that u will have to step up to the 70/ 200 vr wich is double the money.

Answer: 
I assume your comparing the AF-S NIKKOR
70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II and the AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED. I would get the 70-200 if you don't mind spending the extra money, the VRII vibration reduction is well worth it if you are trying to shoot without a tripod.

Answer: 
Have you updated the D80 to the latest firmware. It sounds like a similar problem they were having with the camera not recognizing lenses. Also are the batteries in good condition, as not old or exposed to extreme heat at one time.

Answer: 
There is not enough information to answer specifically, in the D80 manual, there is a list of supported and incompatible lenses. There is no 300mm listed as incompatible. Please check the user manual

Answer: 
What you are seeing is the highlight overexposure warning. The hightlights that are blown out (no detail visible) are white in your image, but when this warning feature is enabled, they blink black to let you know that the areas are overexposed. You can read more about what this feature does and how to use it and the histogram to take better photos: http://www.nikonusa.com/Learn-And-E....

Answer: 
Highlights are the brightest portions of the image. Details may be lost ("washed out") in areas of highlights that are overexposed. Use the multi-selector up or down until you get the desire display.
