Love my D80 as much as I did my F3! I was given the D80 as a Christmas gift in 2006. My wife said, "Now you can get rid of that old film thing and join the modern world." I never thought that any new fangled, plastic-bodied, digital could replace my trusty old F3. I figured this D80 thing would last maybe two years if I was lucky. But I smiled and sold the F3 to show how appreciative I was for the gift. Now here we are 6 years and thousands of images later and I haven't had a single problem or issue. I'm able to take far better photos in far more situations than I ever could with the F3. The D80 has been to the peaks of the Rockies and Andes, backpacked on the Tundra of Newfoundland, bounced around regularly in the bottom of a canoe on long back country trips. It has been frozen, rained on, carried in deserts and abused in many ways. After going through this kind of treatment, my F3 was all brassed and dented. But my D80 doesn't have a visible mark on it. I can't believe I'm as fond of this camera as I was of the F3. February 11, 2012
Great camera! I use Nikon slr's voor more then two decades now. I can't think of any brand that could give me this amount of pleasure en quality in photografy. I know others brands but Nikon is the benchmark. I bought my D80 with 18-200 ED VR a few years ago and shot thousends of pictures with it. This combination is superb. It's fast (shutter response#, lot's of options to create the best picture in any situation, operating in a way that #semi)professional camera's should do: buttons at the place you expect them, good grip, long batt.life, good viewfinder information so you don't need to take your eye of the camera, no useless functions but all the right things a (semi)pro needs to make a good quality picture. It's not afraid of a little splash of water or dust, it's a good solid camera you can even abuse and still get good pictures. I completed it with the SB-600 flash and the batt.grip for better handling and more flexibility (takes also penlite batt.). If you ever find a D80 with a good lense you should buy it! December 31, 2011
Awesome camera. Used it for the first time nearly 4 years ago to do a photo shoot at our local antique car club's hosting of the Antique Automobile Club of America's 2008 Southeast Winter Meet and Grand National events in Melbourne, FL. My first Nikon was a 35mm SLR bought in Japan in 1967 December 9, 2011
I love my D80! I originally bought this camera as it had manual operation capabilities. I have come to trust the auto functions over the years and have taken some amazing pictures with this camera. If this camera were still being made I would buy one or two more and keep them as backups. I hope that thought that went into the design of this camera is maintained into another camera. October 2, 2011
LOVE MY D80 I have taken almost 40,000 pictures in the 5 years I have had my D80. I use it taking pictures of my kid in sporting events. I have only had a communicating problem ERR in 5 years and Nikon is repairing the camera now. I am completely sold on Nikon products. I have 6 other cameras, not as expensive as the D80, but they take great pictures also. August 23, 2011
Great DSLR I purchased this camera few weeks before my trip to Romanian years ago. To my surprise and dismay, few weeks later, the D90 came out. I was of course upset that I didn't have the HD video option but later realized how powerful my camera really was. It had been time tested for years, more than most of other Nikon cameras. It had a rugged construction with a powerful sensor and 3fps shooting. I have taken thousands of photos with it and am very pleased. Once of the reasons I purchased it was because of the top lit up screen on the camera. This allows me to view all of the settings of the camera without having to look through the eyepiece or the main lcd screen. For someone like me who uses only manual shooting. This is a necessity. My D80 has traveled the world with me and it has been able to capture my memories in 10.2 MP detail. Trust me, you will never in your life need more than 10.2MP unless you are a real professional. I have been using the 18-135mm lens non VR that the D80 came with. It is a very nice lens and I have had good experience with it until very recently until the aperture stopped communicating with the camera. I sent it in to Nikon repair and they are fixing it for me for free. I thought that was a really nice thing to do. It is still at the Nikon Repair Facility now. A superb camera with amazing battery life. There is nothing I don't enjoy about the camera. Most people say it is a rather large camera. Try adding a rubber guard to the camera from day one. You will get used to the camera as you will get used to the great quality of photos. August 22, 2011
Great all around camera This is a great camera. I have had it for around 5 years. I got it to replace my old N70 camera. It has fantastic features and has really held up well. I have not even had it taken in for maintenance, though I probably should just for peace of mind. It has really great manual functionality, but I have not had that great of luck with the auto/preset features on it. However, I must say that I only try them out once in a bluemoon so I may not be doing it right. I am no professional and predominately take landscape and nature photos, so typically my subjects are going nowhere fast. So I have plenty of time to set up the shot just how I want it. Overall, though this camera is has been with me and held up to being dragged all around the world by land sea and air. I would recommend it, but it has since been replaced by the D90. August 8, 2011
Terrific Camera Just a great camera. It looks like they stopped making this model. Too bad. Excellent control placements, outstanding image quality, low light sensitivity beyond compare and a color sensitivity that is just amazing. I have very happy customers. Another Great quality Nikon product. July 30, 2011
AWESOME PICTURES I own a Real Estate Company and I am picky about the pictures I put on my website... we are all hooked on my D80 Nikon... I am in the process of getting another one so my agents can use the one I have currently and I want one for my car..... awesome camera July 9, 2011
Terrific DSLR I love my D80 as much as I love my old Nikon F. Although considered a mid-range camera, the D80 has features that can be found on pro-level models. In short, the D80 is a terrific DSLR that has given me me the ability to capture some great images. June 26, 2011
Best Ever. Since boyhood my love of cameras never stop to amazed me from a simple film type, to my first SLR. I love photography and investing in my D80 was well worth every cent. June 20, 2011
Great Camera I bought this camera used and in great condition. It is absolutely fantastic. I upgraded after my D40 had problem that wasn't worth fixing and I have not been at all disappointed. This is a great camera for people of all levels. It takes great pictures and is very user friendly. May 19, 2011
Great Camera! Wow... i bought this camera used in july of 2009 and have used quite a lot since. I have used it in all sorts of locations. I am an aspiring 14 year old photograper that is looking into getting into the business and this is my first camera. Well to start off the build quality of this camera is very good. I have used it for things such as Snowboard photography to just the fun photo shoot with a friend and everything in between. This is a great camera for that person that is not just getting into DSLR's but has had one before and is getting into more advanced photography. I know this is a some what old camera but still a great piece and would highly recommend it to anyone! April 14, 2011
High quality photos This camera is fast handling and has comfortable grips. The controls are laid out right at my fingertips. The camera has great color and image processing and I have had a few photos published. The Autofocus is fast and smooth and there are plenty of creative controls. April 14, 2011
Excellent camera for the non-pro but eclectic Excellent camera for those who will not or cannot spend what it takes to have a fully professional camera yet want excellent quality pictures. This camera is capable of so many features that it takes some time to learn everything that can be achieved. April 14, 2011
Excellent camera In my opininon it handles just like a N70 - N90 film camera with added features such as adjustment of white balance. It is too bad they discontinued it for the improved D90 - so the only way to obtain one is on the used market. April 14, 2011
Has and continues to work great. I am a 68 year old amatuer. This is my first digital camera. Purchased it just before a trip to South Korea. I purchased with a 18-200 zoom lens and SB-800 flash. Studied it for two weeks and then on the 14 hour flight. It took great photographs, mostly in automatic modes. Subsequently used it on trips to multiple National Parks in the American West, from Denali, Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Rocky Mtn, Bryce, Zion, Great Sand Dunes, north rim Grand Canyon, and more. It was used extensively at church to document events, for a wedding, and for portraits for a church directory. It never failed. The camera always provided great photographs, except where I as the user erred. The more I learned to use the full features of the camera the better the photographs became. The camera has done such a good job that the local camera store printed a panorama 10 feet wide by 2 feet high and hung it in their store. April 14, 2011
Nikon never disappoints me I've owned the unit for 4 years now. I've never had any mechanical issue with it. Thankfully, with D80, I was able to capture the important and precious moment of my son growing! Thanks! April 14, 2011
I love this product Camera features are great for both the novice photographer and a pro. I switch from one to the other depending on the circumstances. Have had the camera for four years and it still feels new. April 14, 2011
Great Camera I love the small size of this camera and how fast it starts up and what great pictures it gives me without spending the $1000+ cost of the higher end cameras. This camera does a lot for the price. March 21, 2011
Great First Digital SLR I purchased this camera almost two years ago. It was my first digital SLR after shooting 35mm many years ago. I couldn't have asked anything more of my first digital SLR. The performance was all I expected and more. It has been a workhorse. The fit and finish is excellent and the feel and balance with the MB-D80 grip is top notch. I've had no issues with the camera at all, carrying it on hikes in the mountains and to the beach capturing the sunrise and sunsets among many other excursions. March 20, 2011
my father bought this awesome D80 for 2 and a half years ago and still kicking as good as it is. I'm photographer as well as my father but not have a enough funds to have a better studio. going back, Nikon D80 was very great camera. I use it thrice or 4 times a week and it never compromise me all the time I use this with a professional shoot.I most liked with this camera is able the function button and turn it to no flash mode, so in a hurry situation I have always a choice to have and not have a flash or both with or without flash. And oh I use SB600. NIKON D80 not far from the latest today although it doesn't have a video but it is still a great camera that satisfy you and get a what you imagine and picture out in mind. and why would you buy a "SLR" if you want it to have a video. what i mean is SLR is for still, Video camera is for video. anyways, thanks to this great Nikon D80. March 16, 2011
In a word AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've had this camera for the last two years, and I've had nothing short of excellent results from it. The last time I used this camera, I got some excellent night shots of downtown San Antonio, TX, I also got some good candid portraits with this camera. February 15, 2011
Great Camera Have traveled the world with this DSLR.....the best camera I have ever used, great pictures (wild life, scenery, people and buidlings), and works with all of my older Nikor lenses which is a real plus, and one of my primary reasons in the purchase of this product. A very versitle camera well suited to helping make an amateur look like a pro. January 24, 2011
This is an excellent camera for the intermediate photographer or one exploring future photographic possibilities. Easy to use and many features that make your subject matter "art"... December 26, 2010
Nikon D80 This camera replaced the D70 another great camera. This camera focuses faster in low light and difficult lighting situations. It is very easy to use, and has many great features such as D lighting. Also the ability to copy and customise pictures in camera. This camera is such a delight. I am glad that I picked Nikon over Canon. I still have my D80 even though I also have a D90. December 4, 2010
setting and features easy to understand I found that the settings and features are easy to understand and set-up. I have gone on many trips and the camera has never let me down. If this camera was still in production I would highly recommend this camera. December 2, 2010
GREAT CAMERA I can't say enough about this camera, it is an awesome piece of technology. I've shot portraits, landscapes, macro, and travel photos and great pictures everytime. Not that I've not had a bad picture , I have but that was more me than the camera. When I pull out my camera from my bag I am confident I will get the picture I want with minimum effort on my part. September 11, 2010
Takes great shots and battery lasts; never fails I have never had a dull moment with this camera. I love that is not bulky or heavy and that is still takes awesome photos. So what its only 10MP... it still delivers and even though I'm thinking of purchasing the D300s I would not trade it or sell it. D80 will be my backup camera once I purchase the new model. Thank you Nikon for producing the Best equipment :) August 12, 2010
Great camera, an old friend! Even though this model is no longer in production my four year old D80 keeps plugging along catching great exposures. It continues to be a great tool and companion! Newer models may put it to shame but if one really learns to use his D80 one can get great results! Mine has been dependable and easy to use,never failing to inspire even after 16K shutter activations. A trusted and reliable old friend! August 3, 2010

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.

Answer: 
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: 
Well seeins as you bought it from Amazon why would Nikon send it you with an "apologoy". Tbh its only a little plastic cover which most people end up loosing anyway and can be bought at most camera shops or on the bay.

I thought of buying the nikon lense 80 - 200mm F2.8 AF-D for my nikon D80. Could you please confirm that Nikon 80 - 200mm F2.8 AF-D is compatible with Nikon D80?
In addition, what is the difference between Nikon 80 - 200mm F2.8 AF-D / Nikon 80 - 200mm F2.8AF-S? Which lense is more appropriate for Nikon D80?

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: 
Yes it will work with the D80.
AF lenses autofocus with the lens motor built into the camera (the d80 has this). AF-S lenses have a focus motor built into the lens.

Answer: 
I have traveled all over Europe with the D80 and charger - Plug it into the electric shaver outlet over night. Check with a NIkon Dealer in NZ regarding pluging it into 240v directly.

This is very frustrating because I've missed several shots already when the shutter button won't work because of the problem. I need to turn the camera off and on to take a photo when this problem occurs, which is very frequently, sometimes after each shot. I've had this problem regardless of the battery i use. It seems like it is a fairly common problem from my online research but there is no clear solution. Can someone please help me solve this? Thanks.

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.
