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.

2.5" LCD color monitor with 170-degree, wide-angle viewing: Playback images can be viewed easily from all angles with extraordinary color and clarity.

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.

Vary the size of the center-weighted area reading and the spot meter readings correspond to 11 focusing points.

Built-in Speedlight with Nikon i-TTL flash metering and two-group wireless commander: Nikon’s acclaimed i-TTL flash control evaluates flash exposure with greater precision to achieve better automatic flash balance and deliver outstanding results with SB-600, SB-800 or SB-R200 Speedlights.

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

The D80 has a Filter Effects option called Color Balance that you can increase the amount of green, red or blue, maybe this would help you. Also, you can use a editing software.

Dear Nikon, I just bought a used D80 from Amazon with the 18-135mm. It looks in very good condition, but when I took my first pictures I discovered these shades in the corners - visible in the top right and bottom left corners. What could this be, and is it serious? I might have to seek a refund, so I would really appreciate some tips. Thank you. (I have attached two pictures - one is worse - on darker backgrounds it's not as noticeable) Thank you, again

Answer: 
It is normal for this lens when you shoot wide open, try stopping down a little to f/7-8 It is more prevalent at higher focal lengths against bright back grounds. Nothing wrong with the camera or lens.

Answer: 
There is no way to accurately tell the total number of times your camera shutter has released. While there are third party software applications designed to read a cameras shutter count, this number is not always accurate because the shutter release times may be reset by firmware updates, or reset in the Service department if certain parts are replaced or other operations are performed.

My D80 gives too much noise even in low ISO and high shutter speed, even while using a flash.

Ive been using my Nikon d80 with my Sb-900 for some time through commander mode without any problems, then out of the blue they stopped responding to each other. any ideas on why either unit would stop working via wireless? I had done a green reset on both, is there some secret im missing?

Answer: 
You will need to verify the settings on the camera body and the Speedlight. Please see page #96 of the user's manual for the D80 regarding commander mode.

I was taking pictures of puppies and on my display when I viewed the picture i had just taken, the picture was encased in a window that said "Wanted in 7 States". How did I do that? or How did the D80 do that?

Answer: 
Bill, Either the puppies were holding up a sign, or perhaps you did an "Image Overlay". The D-80 has a mode whereby it merges two images. But this is a deliberate action that takes some doing.

Check your owners manual or go online and study up on Image Overlay.

Good luck.

I want to get a great telephoto lens and macro lens for my partner and I don't really know much about cameras and lenses. What would you recommend? Something under ~$600 and good quality. Thanks!

Answer: 
The AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8 is a perfect micro for the D80. Its equivelent to the FX format 60mm which cost a whooping five hundrend bucks.

You can also get the AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED . it a zoom telepoto lense. Or you can check the nikon link below and pick a different lens. Just don't buy a Mitsubishi and expect it to sound like a Farrari. youtube has video reviews of the lenses.

Answer: 
Here are the most important considerations:
1. Use a tripod if possible, unless you have to follow the dancers by hand
2. Use the lowest number f-stop available
3. Use as high an ISO as you can (understanding noise levels will increase)
3. The closer you can get to the stage, the better... and the wider the focal length you can shoot, the better (like 18-35mm, to minimize camera shake)
4. The more you zoom in (using 100-200mm), the faster your shutter speed will have to be.
Example of what you might need to use: ISO 1600, f/4, 1/30 shutter -- all depends on specific lighting conditions. 1/30 is still slow for moving objects but I don't know if you can shoot faster without causing to be underexposed. Good luck!

How do you know when your DSLR is worn out?

I don't know if I am just sick of it (D80) and it needs to become the reserve camera. Am I imagining that focusing in low light has become labored, there is too much 'noise' in my pics, and slower refresh rates on shots using continuous mode? It still takes a decent portrait in ideal conditions. I've taken over 35,000 pics w/ it.

Answer: 
the impulse for the latest and greatest is strong, and there's even a term for it: NAS (nikon acquisition syndrome). i've had it -- bad at times. your camera is probably not worn out. i've got almost 140,000 shots on my D700, but that didn't stop me from having pre-paid on my D800 when that was announced. the real issue is whether a new piece of kit will enable you to overcome limitations of your current gear, and perhaps more importantly, will it help to reignite your passion for photography? your summation of some of the limitations of the D80 are reality, and not wishful thinking. you can get a cleaner image in more challenging conditions with a newer generation camera and its high-efficiency sensor technology. new camera CPUs like those found in the newest generation nikons really whip the AF and scene-recognition systems in the older models. there is a wide variety of models, with feature sets for every level of user, available today. you need to check out the product comparison to decide which model is the best fit for you today.
