An excellent film camera.

Jamie, B&H Photo

  • Summary: This international version of the N80 is equal to its American counterpart. I have both versions. I prefer film over digital and developing my own film and darkroom prints. I purchased this body so I would have a backup for my N80 and to also have the ability to use them simutaneously with both color and B&W film.
  • Pros: Options for Auto Manual, Very functional

I Think I'm In Love o.O

ATiwolf, B&H Photo

  • Summary: I Bought The N80(Normal Black Version)So I Could Dip My Toes Into The World Of SLR Photography...I Could Have Easily Bought A Digital SLR...But I Chose a Used N80 instead. So Glad i Did. I Purchased a Nikon D70 A few months after my first date with the N80. I Found Myself running back to the N80. The Camera Is Light and Feels Better in you hand compared to the D70/D40. When You Put your eye into the viewfinder you'll melt.
  • Pros: Attractive Body, Comfortable Design, Film, Fingertip Controls, Light, Reliable Operation, Small, Strong Construction

Best AF Film Camera for Amateurs

11 April 2013
  • Excerpt: "...talking about film cameras, the Nikon F80 (also known as N80 in the states) is particularly new as it came onto the market in the year 2000. In terms of camera models, that may seem like a long time ago, but with the rise and dominance of the DSLRs, Bridge Cameras and Compact cameras in recent times, it is no surprise that the film camera business is diminishing. Therefore, less of these kinds of cameras are currently in production. Many companies ...
  • Pros: Ease of Use, Image Quality, Options, Shooting Modes, Compatibility
  • Cons: Flash sync speed, Film (disadvantage for some), Developing Costs, A couple of buttons

Excellent Bag of tricks

  • Excerpt: "...how good a film SLR Nikon could make these days. The only time I messed up is when I was using a flash gun for fill-in on portraits, however I think this was my bad because I just put the third party flash gun on the camera and started shooting portraits with no diffuser thinking the camera would just get it right, but of course without using flash exposure compensation or slow sync the camera has tried to use the flash to provide as much of the ...
  • Pros: durable, reliable, big viewfinder, fast .
  • Cons: 1/125th flash sync, does not meter with manual nikon lenses .

Very light and quite small camera

  • Excerpt: "...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 camera. Its auto focus is very quick and very accurate with Nikkor lenses (I did not try with other lenses). All ...
  • Pros: Very quick auto focus and low price

Nikon F80

8 November 2005
  • 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! Firstly, any ...
  • Pros: Lightweight and Easy to use piece of Craftsmanship
  • Cons: Perhaps not a durable as previous models

Sparkling all-rounder

16 January 2005
  • 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 ...
  • Pros: Really well featured, superb exposure
  • Cons: AF struggles with larger lenses
