Expert Review

DP Review
29 October 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...

Nikon D80 review

Camera Labs
1 September 2006
  • Summary: The arrival of the Nikon D80 completes the trio of high-profile 10 Megapixel digital SLRs. Of course more 10 Megapixel DSLRs are already on their way, but it’s fair to say the greatest attention right now is focused on the D80, Canon 400D / XTi and Sony Alpha A100. So the fair question to ask off the bat, is how does the D80 measure-up? In terms of features, the D80 doesn’t actually look particularly strong against the competition.
  • Pros: Images with high detail and low noise, Superior build quality and handling to rivals, Best viewfinder experience in its class, Superb metering, flash and AF performance
  • Cons: Higher price than rival 10Mpixel DSLRs, No physical anti-dust feature, No anti-shake in standard kit, RAW adjustment software not included

  • Conclusion: Like the D100-to-D200 upgrade before it, this upgrade from the D70 is a worthwhile step up in both ability and performance

  • Summary: The Nikon D80 was one of the most hyped and eagerly anticipated 10 megapixel DSLRs announced this summer. At the time it was being favourably compared to its only other competitor, the Sony A100, but a lot has happened in recent months. There is now a plethora of sub £1000 10 megapixel DSLRs for consumers to choose from, and the Nikon D80 is in direct competition with Canon's EOS 400D / XTi, as well as similar models from Pentax and Samsung.

Test: Nikon D80 (Digital-SLR)

CHIP Online
23 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Die sehr gute D80 reicht fast an D200 heran, kostet aber ein sattes Drittel weniger. Unter 1.000 Euro gibt es momentan keine besser D-SLR zu kaufen – doch nach der Photokina werden die Karten neu gemischt, wenn die 10-Megapixel-SLRs
  • Pros: Sehr gute Bildqualität, Geringes Rauschen, Sehr guter Sucher, Schnell
