Camera Test: Nikon D80

Pop Photo
16 October 2007
  • Summary: : Perhaps you're thinking this is One Complicated Camera. Absolutely not. Pick it up, put it on Program, choose a resolution, and shoot. When you need advanced controls or after-shooting tweaks, they're there, but they don't intrude on the shooting experience.

Hands On: Nikon D80 DSLR

Pop Photo
16 October 2007
  • Excerpt: If the Nikon D70 of 2004 was The Camera Nikon Had To Make, the new D80 is the Camera Nikon Absolutely Had To Make. Fine though the 6-megapixel D70 (later D70s) was, it was looking ever more dated next to newer 8MP and 10MP digital SLRs from Canon , Olympus , and Sony .

10MP DSLR Shootout: Nikon D80

Pop Photo
16 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Nikon's formula for building a better bombshell: Take the sensor, processor, autofocus, and most of the features of the high-end D200 and put them in a sub-$1,000 body. It's a megaton hit. System flexibility: Enormous and growing: a great wireless macro flash system, Vibration Reduction lenses, superspeeds and superteles, and the acclaimed Capture NX software.

DP Review
30 September 2007
  • Conclusion: The number of cons, and the fact that there are no serious ones, is a testament to the thought and work that has gone into the D80's design. It's one of those cameras which just feels 'right and sorted' from the moment you pick it up. Things just get better the more you use the camera, you will begin to discover the usefulness of major features like the customizable automatic ISO and the subtle touches like being able to tap the DELETE button twice to delete an image...
  • Pros: Excellent resolution, lots of detail, not a leap from eight megapixels, but certainly from six, Excellent build quality, tight shut lines, quality materials, Instant power on, very responsive, very short black-out time, very fast media write, Fast, accurate auto focus (11 area sensor, similar to the D200), Auto-focus assist lamp rather than requiring flash to be raised, Vibrant color response, similar hues to other digital SLR's, Reliable, sophisticated, if sometimes ...
  • Cons: High sensitivity (ISO) noise levels higher than Canon EOS 400D, Noise reduction can be intrusive, although adjustable, more grain-like appearance, Default sharpness level perhaps still a little conservative, Disappointing automatic white balance performance in incandescent light, No RAW adjustment with supplied PictureProject, only simple conversion, Limited image parameter adjustment (especially for color saturation), Slower maximum shutter speed (1/4000 vs 1/8000 se...

30 September 2007
  • Summary: The D80 reveals an unusual level of attention to detail from Nikon; 32 customisable options mean the camera can be tailored to almost any user’s proclivities. Excellent handling and build, superb performance from the metering and the focus set up add to the confidence the camera builds as you lift it from its box. In short, the D80 is stunning, even if it is a little pricey compared to the 10-megapixel competition.
  • Pros: Image quality, fast start up, customisable control, USB 2.0 connectivity, programmable “FUNC” button, build, ease of use, in-camera editing, help menu system.
  • Cons: Pricier than competition, slower (than D70s’) top shutter speed, but not much else!

Nikon D80 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
30 June 2007
  • Excerpt: First of all, Nikon D80 , with plastic and rubber shell, is bigger but lighter than D40 and comes with many other changes: bigger LCD, larger ISO range, in-camera retouching, multiple exposures and exposure delay, Kelvin color temperature white balance, 11 area TTL autofocus instead of 5 area TTL, but same as the D200, and last but not the last, 4 extra megapixels (that makes 10MP instead of 6MP).
