Recently I updated my D80 to a D3300, shedding features for lighter weight and less bulk. Mostly I don't miss the other features except for one thing: with the D3300 the button that changes exposure compensation in P,S,A modes is the same button that changes aperture in M mode, whereas they were different buttons/dials on the D80. This has tripped me up numerous times when I'll be shooting in aperture priority with exposure compensation set to -.3 or -.7 and then switch to manual, forgetting...

Forgive me, this may be a little long winded. Skip to the end for the short question if you want.Hello, I've been using the Sigma 28-70 EX DG f2.8 D as my main standard zoom now for nearly 10 years. I am not here to defend it or call it a great lens, I know the stigmas associated with Sigma. What I consider it to have been for me personally is a fantastic gateway lens. I never took real advantage of it vs the Nikon 35-70 f3.3-4.5 I had prior to it. I just operated under the "bigger lens...

Hello everyone.  I undertook resolving the classic issue on the Nikon D80 of the plastic stub wearing down on the aperture control unit gear.  I fixed the gear and felt confident that I could get the camera back together .... That is, until I found two pieces I had no idea where they went! Can anyone help?  Here is a picture below..  Thank you very much!

Hello, I have a theoretical question that has arisen whilst researching the various filter holders on the market. I have a Nikon D80, with a cropped sensor, and will soon be buying a wide angle DX lens to suit. This will mean I will also need to replace my current filter holder and filters to take advantage of the wider view. So, the question is: if a particular filter holder will allow a certain maximum viewing angle on a full frame camera before causing light problems at the edge of the...

Hello, I'm looking for my first SLR camera for photography. I found Nikon D80 + Nikon Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8 D for about 230$ but it have few minuses... The first is fact that shutter have 85K photos.

I don't know it is worth buying this SLR camera + this lens with 85K photos taken for 230$ How long this shutter will live or it is possible to replace...

In this and other forums I read a lot about the Nikon D750 shutter problems and the recall from Nikon. It makes me hesitate a bit to buy this camera. So, i was wondering if any new users of the D750 are also experiencing these problems, or has Nikon resolved the issue? Over the years I've been using the D70, D50, D80, D90, D5200 and D7100. The D70, D80, D90 and D7100 all had quality issues. The D50 and D5200 worked flawlessly. So if I'm buying the D750 I really want it to be reliable. Johan

Hi, I've a Nikon D80 its my throw it in my bag when I'm out with the kids camera. I love it still. Last week the battery ran out and it took me 2 days to get round to popping the charged spare in. Now I have a flashing clock on the display on top of the camera as the clock obviously needs setting BUT I can't get into my menu's. No button opens up the menu screen at all so i can't even factory rest. Can anyone help ?  --Preserving memories is my passion x

Hi everyone, I moved from a D80 to a D600, mostly for the full-frame capabilities. I’m having some issues and I’m wondering if it’s me or the camera…because I didn’t have issues like this with the D80, however, I realize the D600 has way more functions and that is a learning curve for me. All I know is that I’m having to heavily edit my photos in Lightroom to get it to look like what I recall. I always have to warm them up. And lately the exposure is way off. I recently reset my settings, in...
