Hi I recently got a new lens for my Nikon D80 (it was given to me) but it wont focus at all. It does not matter if I put it in manual mode or auto focus. This lens is the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR I put it in someones D7200 and it seems to work fine, no problems on that camera but on my D80 it wont focus :( Is there some settings I am no aware of to make it work? It should be compatible. Thank you

Hi folks, First timer here with some questions on which DSLR I should choose for my next purchase. I am currently shooting a Nikon D80 with a Rokinon 16mm/2.0 lens. My results are average I would say, but I feel as though I can't get the full use of my lens without my photos being riddled with noise (D80s Native ISO 1600). I recently visited Iceland, and although I am pleased with the images I came home with, I think I could have achieved more with a higher end body. Unfortunately, my options...

hi i'm about to buy a new camera after my long friend d80 died. i played with both cameras and the differences are minor (except the price but i'm hoping to find a good deal on black friday/cyber monday) its right that the focus is faster on the 7500 and the images are abit clearer (on the lcd screen) but most of the other features are sort of the same. i read the older lens coming from film might not work on the 7500 (they did on my d80) because nikon changes supported cpu types. and last...

I suspect this is likely a frequent topic, but here goes... Me: A budding amateur photog, strictly hobbyist. I shoot a lot of kids sports (track and softball) and landscapes during travel and hiking trips. Some indoor shots at family events and parties. I want the ability to advance my skills and explore a bit more RAW post-processing, and try out some newer techniques and lenses. I have one decent 14-54 Zuiko Pro lens for my Olympus.  If I wanted to re-purpose lenses, I'd need to go...

Hi guys, has anybody built/used a barn door for astrophotography. I just ordered the parts I will need for the build and I'm very excited. I'm just curious if any of you used something like this and gotten any good results. The first attempt I will make is to shoot Andromeda with my Nikon D80, but I have no clue as to what results to expect. looking forwards to any kind of input from you, John --http://www.textures4photoshop.com

Newbie to the list but not photography. Started with Nikon and Pentax back in the 70's and migrated over the years to point and shoot and then digital bridge cameras. Previously I've turned to the list and usually found answers in the forums. Couldn't find anything on this subject though...  Recently purchased a pre-owned D80 with a Nikkor 18-135 in excellent physical condition (except the battery was dead and no charger.. I know that was my first mistake) Bought a charger and spare battery,...

Dear, I am new to this forum and also to the photography/video world. I will be traveling to the USA soon and have the intention to buy a decent camera, since the price of these gadgets in my home country is insane. The primary use for this camera would be to shoot videos for a YouTube channel. I believe that 80% of these videos would be recorded with me seated in a sofa in my office and 20% outside. Eventually I would use this camera for taking pictures outside as well. After doing a...

Briefly: I have a Nikon D80 that has been on my shelf for the last 5 years that takes overexposed pictures and I think the CCD sensor could be the issue. Is it worth repairing or should I invest in a new camera? Detailed: In 2011 I did some wildlife photography in dry/dusty conditions and after a drop, my lens had trouble auto-focusing and wobbled. I could hear a grinding in the motor and the shutter was slow. I brought it to a shop for repair (not Nikon itself but affiliated) and they made...

I couldn't get my new Mac to input  my Nikon 7200 camera photos. It never had a problem with the D80. So, I dowloaded the NX software and it transferred into the computer.   Now, I can't seem to transfer them from the Nikon software over to the "Photos" software on my MAC. I can email them to myself and then input them into the PHOTOS.  Surely. there must be a simple way to get them transferred but I"m new to the camera, the software and the computer. . Can anyone explain how to either...
