I was reading an opinion piece by Thom Hogan  the other day, and he mentioned the D80 in a list of cameras that represented Nikon's bad side. "The genius that gave us the F2, F4, D1, D3, N90s, F100, and D300 seems to be missing at the moment. Instead we’re seeing more of the company that gave us the F5, N65, D2h, D80, and D4." What was the problem with the D80? Heck, I even own one and I don't remember the controversy. I think there were complaints about matrix metering... Was that it? It is...

Hi All! So I've been having a hard time trying to figure out what my next camera will be.  Some criteria: Weight.  The biggest issue I have is being able to hold the camera.  I have health issues which weight is an issue as well as tremors in my hands on occasion.  So a light, well balanced camera is key.  I also have petite hands so smaller is ok for my needs. Price.  I am wanting to spend around 1K (US) for a body and decent lenses. My current camera is a Nikon D80.  I am really leaning...

Hi there, this is my first post here. My beloved D80 is dead, and I am considering going m4/3 instead of updating to D7100. Sorry if this was asked before, but I would like to "hear" from former D80 (or other models) users their experience regarding the transition to m4/3, specially: 1) general color and noise rendition 2) metering (D80 matrix sometimes drove me crazy) 2) usefulness of the old gear (Sb600, 35mm or 50mm with adapter?) 3) Flash exposure and remote flash capability. I'm looking...

Hello I am a newbie when it comes to Astrophotography. I wanted to get my first Telescope and I want to be able to take picture's with my DSLR attached to the telescope. I came across this Telescope: Celestron Cosmos 90GT Wifi. Seems like a nice Scope but wanted the forums's opinion if this would be a good Scope and especially to hook up a Camera to it? Otherwise, can you guys recommend any other Telescope? I can probably spend up to $500. The camera I have is a Nikon D80 DSLR and I maybe...

Today, I changed from Nikon D3s to canon 1D Mark IV, and looking forward to trying my first canon shots. I am planning to buy  telephoto lens but a bit undecided about 100-40 or 400mm f5.6. What would you recommend?

I have a D80 which is new to me.  I have downloaded the manual for same but am still without an answer to something.   I would like to take long exposures of planets etc.  Nowhere does the manual say anything about how to get the shutter to stay open or lock open. It tells you how to turn off the noise reduction, use a remote etc but nothing on how to set the camera to do it.   Generally, the manual while helpful has a lot to be desired.

I have an interesting opportunity in front of me. A local camera shop has a pristine D300 with approximately 40m actuations for sale. I recently picked up a very nice D7000 from the same shop. I currently have a D200 and a D80 and obviously wouldn't need 4 DSLR's. I'm thinking of getting the D300 and selling the D80 and D200 leaving me with the D7000 and a D300. The pictures I mostly shoot are family and vacation shots. Would the D300 be worth sacrificing the other two to be used with the D7000?

I'm going to apologize straight out for my ignorance on the subject, it's not for lack of trying but my brain refuses to retain anything of the math of sensor and aperture size. I've been looking to replace my Nikon D80 for some time and have just given up the last few times I've tried researching options, overwhelmed. As I've been complaining about the camera's wear and tear, shortcomings, and battery life so long, my husband won't tolerate me putting it off any longer. He's pushing for the...

I remember when computers first came out and the pace of improvements in processing speed and RAM were amazing. As much as it pains me to admit it, I was buying a new computer just about every year to keep up with the latest in RAM and processor. Now 17 years later, unless you have specific needs like being a gamer, for most people todays computers are plenty fast and have lots of RAM. It got me to thinking about digital cameras, particularly mega-pixels? Do you think there will be a point...
