Nikon D80 10MP Digital SLR

 

Nikon joins the entry level digital SLR party and makes it even harder for you to choose.

The D80 is another superb camera in Nikon's increasingly impressive DSLR range. It is expensive and complicated, but it is also extremely well made, incredibly versatile and capable of fantastic picture quality. However it is surrounded by some very...

Nikon D80 review

 

The Nikon D80 is a solid, brick-house of a camera. But inside lies a soft and gentle arty side.

Fantastic image quality overrides the bulkiness of the D80 and makes this camera a must.

Nikon D80 DSLR digital camera

 

Take an air pump to Nikon's D50 and start inflating, then surgically remove – and adjust – a large dollop of kit from the Nikon D200, mix in a smidgen of the Nikon D70s, stir briskly and you get … a Nikon D80. The D80 reveals and unusual level of...

Image quality, fast start up, customisable control, USB2.0 connectivity, programmable FUNC button, build, ease of use, in-camera editing, help menu system

Pricier than competition, slower (than D70s) top shutter speed, but not much else!

The D80 reveals and 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...

Nikon D80 review

 

Hot on the heels of Sony's A100 comes Nikon's D80

10 megapixels ; Better image quality than the D50

No anti-shake system ; It's pricey

Nikon's taken a conservative approach with the D80. Rather than go for a wild new look and a truckload of gadgetry, the company's built on a tried-and-trusted design.

Nikon D80 18-70 Kit review

 

While the D40 and D40x feel like entry-level digital SLRs, the D80 is more substantial, not just in its size and weight but also in its capabilities.

Nikon D80 10.2Mp digital SLR camera

 

The Nikon D80 is an enthusiast's dream and is incredibly rewarding to use. You can't get much better than this without spending a thousand quid or more. Highly recommended.

Nikon D80 Review

 

Digital SLR Photography editor, Daniel Lezano, tests the Nikon D80

D-lighting: A function that allows you to brighten up a subject that has been underexposed, for instance a backlit person, or to enhance contrast of an overexposed subject that otherwise looks too bright.

Nikon D80

 

Can the D80 prove to be a worthwhile upgrade from Nikon's two-and-a-half-year-old D70 consumer SLR and its D70s successor?

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