Excerpt: Like most people who have bought this camera in the last few years I bought this second hand on eBay for about £80 with a zoom lens, which I soon swapped for a 50mm standard lens. For someone like me who had only used digital cameras and manual film SLR cameras before, using this it came as a surprise to me how advanced this camera is, essentially it's digital in every way apart from the fact it has a film transport mechanism.
Pros: durable, reliable, big viewfinder, fast .
Cons: 1/125th flash sync, does not meter with manual nikon lenses .
Excerpt: I bought this camera 8 years ago and I am still using it from time to time. I have always good experience with this camera although I use a digital one now - Nikon D200. With the standard Nikkor lens f3.5-5.6 28-80 it gives you well exposed and sharp pictures. The small flash light installed to the camera is very useful especially during the night time parties:-) Moreover it is very light and quite small camera so you can take it wherever you want almost as a compact...
Excerpt: Nikon have expertise in camera manufacture and development that is not really comparable to other makes. They have developed their own metering systems and methods that others have just copied. The F80 continues this tradition and it really is a magnificent camera for both the Professional and the Non-Professional. Lets talk about ergonomics later and start with what this camera can do to take pictures - the reason for buying it!
Pros: Lightweight and Easy to use piece of Craftsmanship

Excerpt: Nikon never seemed to be able to make a decent mid-range AF camera. You could buy a camera with a good feature set (F601) but the AF was poor and the motordrive painful to hear. The F70 improved the AF and was quieter but alienated buyers with it's quirky control panel (actually really simple but once people had decided it was complicated that was it). The F401 was an awful camera and the F50 very awkward to use. The F60 was short of features and AF speed.
Excerpt: i has long enought to find a good camera for my hobby. When i see nikon launching the F80 i interesting to test that and i borrow from my friend. that camera builtin flash have a compact dimension and weight. this camera has built in lower power and view finder cover almost 92% of frame.
Excerpt: This camera is light weight and easy to use. Probably the best in the range. Is a good one for amateur photographer. Range of aperture and shutter speed is good enough for most of the picture shooting. Camera body is well designed. I like to hold it very much. The custom settings allowed users to set the camera according to personal preference. The single exposure, continuous exposure, self-timer and multiple exposure button are joined.
Excerpt: When I first adopt photography as a hubby I was disappointed that my camera then, which was Olympus IS21, lacks almost 85% of the specs and moves that I read about in photography books and magazines. Every time I read about a creative technique I run to my camera to apply what I have learned, but for my disappointment I was usually unable to do any of them! That was the case before my hands touched the gorgeous body of the F80!
Excerpt: After many years using a fully manual, second hand Olympus OM30 I decided to take a step up and get a good quality mid-range SLR. The Nikon F80 did everything I hoped for. I did not have a fortune to spend but wanted something as good as possible for the price. It was important for me to have optimum creativity as I like fine art and abstract photography. At £379 (including lens) the Nikon is fabulous.
Excerpt: I replaced a 15 year old Olympus OM40 with this brand spanking new Nikon F80 and rediscovered my passion and interest in Photography. The quality of optics on this camera is very much in line with the Nikon reputation and is comparable with some more expensive models. The plethora of modes and features for focussing, exposure, aperture control making this a very flexible camera.
Pros: Lots of features, sturdy build, quality optics
