Set the release mode to Continuous. Then the camera will take pics as long as the shutter release is held down... until the buffer fills.

By default the D80 hides several of the more technical menus so that ... you activate either the 'Full' or 'My menu' option from thesetup menu.

Inadvertanly set delay and can't figure out how to get it back to the original setting.


Repeatedly press the shooting mode button on the upper-right side of the camera (marked with overlapping rectangles) to select the desired shooting mode. If that doesn't work, hold down the button and turn the main command dial (on the back) to cycle through the modes.

The available modes are Single frame (letter "S" in a rectangle), Continuous (overlapping rectangles), Self-timer (one-armed clock), Delayed remote (self-timer above remote), and Quick-response remote (remote).

Where's the shooting information of d80 in the larger screen?


The Shooting Information screen was introduced with the D40. The older D80 does not have it. Instead it shows almost all of the information in the control panel and/or viewfinder, though you have to delve into the menus for some of it.

Most of the settings you could change via the Shooting Info screen on the D40, you can change by pressing the appropriate button and turning one of the command dials.

The D40 was intended as an introductory dSLR, doing more handholding for new photographers, putting things into visual, menu-driven screens. The D80 was intended as a midlevel camera, allowing faster operation using more buttons. It does less handholding, but once you learn where the controls are, it actually is faster to use. (Okay, that was based on my personal experience, since I've used both.)

Continuous shot 3 frames per second is not


There are several possibilities.

If you're using the flash, the flash isn't going to charge that fast.

If your shutter speed is slower than a third of a second, you're obviously not going to get three frames per second.

If the camera is set on AF-C and the subject is moving, the camera may be having trouble tracking it.

If you're shooting RAW and have a slow memory card, the buffer will fill up quickly and slow you down. Try it with JPEG and see if it makes any difference.

If you have the exposure delay mode (custom setting #31) turn on, the camera will wait about 0.4 seconds before shooting, and this applies even in continuous mode.

Check all of the above. Set the camera to Manual exposure mode. Turn off the autofocus. Set the image quality to JPEG Basic. Set the camera to Continuous 3 fps. Now, press and hold down the shutter release button for five seconds. Does the camera take about fifteen pictures?

If you've checked all of these and it still won't do it, post an additional comment here and we can go from there.

I'm getting the F- - code in the screen of my Nikon D80 SLR. Also, when I press down on the button to take a picture it shows r11 where it shows the number of photos available to take.


i think the f-- code means its not recognizing your lens correctly. make sure all the contacts on lens and camera are clean. the r11 is the buffer. nothing to worry about. The number of images that can be stored in the memory buffer at current settings is shown in the exposure-count displays in the
viewfinder and control panel while the shutter-release button is pressed. This number is updated as photographs are transferred to the memory card and more memory becomes available in the buff er. If 0 is displayed, the buff er is full and shooting will slow. Shooting can continue up to a maximum of 100 shots.

you can get the d80 manual here if you dont have it

I have a d 80 nikon and encounter following problem. when i press the shutter-release button i am getting following message error 07. I then pressed again the shutter release button. The same error...


I dont think this is actually an error but,
the "07 is just telling you that the camera is in Raw shooting mode and in that mode you can shoot 7 shots one after the other (with continuous shooting mode on) before the buffer gets full.

See page 140 of the manual and also read about RAW mode settings on your camera.

Cheange the setting from RAW and try taking a pic to see that your "error" goes away.

During shooting, or when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, the number of images that can be stored in the memory buffer at current settings is shown on the exposure-count displays in the control panel and viewfinder. "r06" indicates that six images can fit in the camera's buffer, "r08" would indicate eight frames. Any other number could be displayed as well. Burst mode is used when you want to hold down the shutter button and continuously shoot. You are probably shooting in burst mode and your buffer is full, set the camera to single shot and see if that helps.

Nikon D80 - Continuous shooting


I will need more info on the settings you are using. It might be that the camera is in a specific mode which is not allowing you to take continuos shots.
