Hi All, I have Nikon D80 together with Nikkor 18-200 VR (first edition), Tamron 17-50 2.8 XR Di II SP and SB 600 flash. I'm happy with the pictures quality except usable ISO which is IMO around 800 for this camera. When it comes to the photo print size I don't go over A4 or 8x10. I would rather avoid replacing body and lenses. On the other side I heard that camera with more megapixels require better lenses. That is why I wonder if you can recommend me a body replacement that would be...

I used to make pictures with a Nikon D80 + 18-200 VR for several years; because I felt that the combination was to heavy and bulky the last years I hardly used it, instead I used a Panasonic DMC-TZ7....... I wanted more and better,last year I bought the OMD-EM10+ 14-42 EZ, like the EM10 but not the 14-42EZ, too soft and don't like the electric zooming... So... I bought the Oly 25 1.8, Oly 45 1.8 and Pana 14 2.5 . Much nicer pictures. I missed a zoom,wanted the " best" and bought the Oly 12-40...

I have a situation that is driving me insane. I just realised the when I import photos from my D80 into iphoto (now called photos) on my macbook they are being tagged with the precise location they where taken in. It took me a while to realise this is weird because nowadays all devices do this, then I remembered that my old faithful was pre geotagging days. I do not have an eye-fi card so I really cannot understand how this is happening. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hey all. So, for various reasons, it's been decided that I'm shooting pictures at a conference I'm going to next week. I'll be indoors for most/all of it, and as well as doing candid portraits of attendees, I'll also be doing a few staged shots in cramped quarters at a client's office. My experience with photos was a few classes in high school (pre-digital), and then just being the 'family photographer' for family events. I would say I have a decent eye for composition, but my technical...

I have had my Nikon D80 with 18 - 200 VR lens stolen. After taking over 45,000 photos with it I feel like I have lost a close friend. So an upgrade is on the way yet I am totally confused by the huge range of cameras in the range and don't know which one is best for me. Could someone please give me some pointers on which body might best suit me. Thanks

I am shooting a time lapse but every other picture has a -1 exposure bias. Shooting in "A" Aperture Priority mode. Trying to catch the change in sky for summer solstice in Alaska so I want the camera to adjust as the light diminishes. Even shots have exposure bias 0 and odd have -1. I manually set it to -.3 just to see what would happen. Even shots have -.3 and odd have -1.3. Time laps doesn't look very good when every other Picture is darker. Can anyone tell me how to stop that from happening?
