Great for novice photographers and enthusiasts alike. Bought a D80 a few years back as an upgrade from my D100 and have been perfectly content with it ever since. It did everything I needed it to do at the time and I still serves as a backup body in certain situations for me today. If you're not big on post-production editing, the D80 has several built-in features that can help correct some abnormalities you may find in your images. I highly recommend getting your hands on some good quality editing software if you're even semi-serious about photography, but some people aren't interested in interested in going that far in depth with their photos, and that's fine. The D80, with a few tweaks here and there, can still produce quality images and has a large enough display that you can still make reasonable edits on the fly. All in all, it's a great camera for someone who's just getting their feet wet with digital cameras or even serious photographers who just want to slap an 18-300mm lens on and take it on a hike, bike ride, or anywhere else that lugging around an expensive, pro-level body wouldn't be reasonable.

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.

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

Answer: 
The Clock battery inside of the D80 will be drained if the main battery is taken out for an extended period of time. We suggest you keep the main battery in the camera for at least one to two days for the Clock battery to fully recharge. If the issue persists, the clock battery may need to be replace. You can contact technical support for assistance.
