Re: D80 as a Point & Shoot cam...

I recently got the D80 to replace an FZ30 p/s and my wife likes it MUCH better. Put it in auto and shoot away. She likes the 50mm 1.8 which makes it lighter and less intimidating.

Once she learns how to be attentitive to the focus light and use the review delete button she'll be set. Once she's happy there you can show her the other default settings, then move on to manual controls. Before you know it you'll be buying a new D80 because you can't get it back from her.

Also, be sure to download and print from walmart or somewhere 4x6's so she'll have pictures to show off and send to family/friends. My wife's biggest gripe was not having prints to put in her albums. PC's and photoweb sites may flourish but photoalbums will never die.
