Summary: This is a robust camera good performance only surpassed by new professional camera, ergonomics allow us greater freedom in the controls at the time of any photograph. Highly recommended if you can not buy a more professional grade of the line. It's one of my header camera that I have it now.
Excerpt: The Nikon D80 was fun to learn how to use. It was somewhat easy to figure out. Once I did learn how to use it I was taking beautiful pictures, That includes landscapes, portraits, and sporting events. Basically anything. It's just a great camera and I enjoy using it.
Excerpt: I bought this camera back in 2009. I LOVE it and am ready to upgrade. If you're just starting out OR just want a nicer camera than the smaller digitals, then this is for you! It's not very complicated and functions well. The battery life is very good for this size of camera. Photos taken are very clear with bright vivid colors! I would recommend the Nikon brand for any photographer .... well built brand.
Excerpt: The Nikon D80 is a great camera. Clarity of photos is great. It is user friendly on auto mode, but has manual features a pro could use. It focuses quickly for clear motion shots. The battery lasts for quite a while. A bit on the bulky side, and the lens cap tends to fall off easily..
Excerpt: I have used this camera for over two years now, and never had any problems with it. Combined with 18 200mm VR Nikkor lens, it is a smart gadget that it pretty easy to use, yet very versatile with what it can do. I also have Nikon D300 ( more advanced version of DX cameras), but D80 is much lighter and great for travel.
Excerpt: The Nikon D80 digital Camera is a great camera for the price. It takes great pictures and it is really easy to use and to quickly switch between shooting modes. The only complaint that i have is that the stock lens is a little slow to focus in low light.
Excerpt: I bought the D80 as my first single lens reflex camera and have been happy with it. The SDHC compatability is nice when taking RAW images. The menus are fairly easy to navigate and give the user control over nearly every option. One thing I do not like about the camera relates to the way bracketing and the continuous shutter mode interact.
Excerpt: I love this camera, and the quality has been great for both personal pictures and publishable professional shots. It takes some getting used to, and users may want to carry the manual on the first few shoots, as some menus are not terribly intuitive.
