Review Summary

Before the Nikon D80 was released, it was one of the most hyped and awaited 10 megapixel cameras. Needless to say, so far it hasn’t been that disappointing. Notable attractions on the Nikon D80 are excellent color rendition and noise levels, a large feature set, highly customizable and lightning-fast performance. Other features included are a large, bright and clear optical viewfinder, and excellent image quality with low noise up to ISO 800. With all those included in the Nikon D80, the result is an excellent performance. From its body and size, a certain user commented on how the handling is superb with a large and deep handgrip, with enough space for all your fingers to hold on to. Its controls are precise and intuitive. Another discovery is that its batteries don’t hold on for a long time. The Nikon D80 has somehow managed to impress many people as the photographers feel that the Nikon D80 should be a great camera as only professionals use it. What makes the Nikon D80 more attractive is that it works real fast unlike some other cameras. Though the Nikon D80 is in direct competition with other brands, it has still managed to hold a place among photographers. In some ways, Nikon has proven that it’s still ahead. The high quality of the Nikon D80 comes with a high price too. Due to the fact that it’s a high-end model where high performance and sharp images are expected and most importantly it’s aimed at professional photographers who can afford to buy it. A particular user likes this camera as it has tons of options, and really makes you feel good about photography. All these features available on the Nikon D80, from its attractive 10.2 megapixels to its amazingly fast power of taking pictures, Nikon in many ways does not disappoint.
