Question about Nikon Digital Cameras

3 Answers

Hi, I purchased a Nikon Coolpix P80 digital camera, its a beaut camera to use but I appear to have issues with it. When taking a photo and viewing it at 100% I find the quality of the picture is not clear, its very grainy. Is the issue with myself as I do tend to have alittle camera shake. Is there too much noise is my ISO too high as its set at 200. How do I take a good photo.

    If I'm shooting on aperture the camera adjusts the shutter speed and vice sa versa. I have not changed the colour setting all at factory default. The only thing I would have changed is the ISO which is at 200

I recomend you to use ISO64 for it shoots a good picture than ISO200 above. it is normal for us to shake our hands a little while taking pictures but the cam still can get a sharp image. if you VR is turned off it can produce shots with a shaky result so its better if you turn it on the VR. for more details about your cam pls visit this site.

Try to adjust the shutter speed to faster. Did you happen to change some image color option? I suggests you to use the default color settings, you can see it on the Menu. Try the factory default because they are always better in picture quality.

Hi. I'm trying to transfer pictures from my Nikon Coolpix P80 onto my Mac. Could you walk me through the steps? I no longer have the manual. Thanks.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

My Nikon p80 has difficulty focusing in low light. Also, the white balance is difficult to control and most low light photos are too yellow.


Seems to be interesting.
For low light focusing problem here is the solution which works with any digital camera.
I have observed that P80 has a slow focusing symptom. If you are in TELE range that is lens out. Then you will be hitting this issue very frequently.
Check if you are not restricting that red light bulb from throwing the light on your subject.This light is to assist the camera to focus.
Try doing this. Illuminate the object with a small/capable torch. Sometimes AF assist lamp is not doing the job.
another solution is focus in small steps. move lens out a little half press the focus/snap button. repeat this till you get the desired frame. This somehow helps camera to focus difficult objects.

White Balance:
Nikon P80 has good white balance functionality. But if you do not get what you want you need to set the WB manually. Here is the procedure to set white balance manually.
Procedure:
You need to select the preset manual for this procedure. Keep a white colored object with you always. This should be of size of a playing card at minimum.
when you will select the manual white balance preset. it will show you the measure option. Keep your white subject in front of the lens and press measure such that the camera view is filled with that white object's view.
Now you are ready to go. Your Camera will take the pictures just right.

Nikon CoolPix P80 Transfer software does not activate.


I had a similar problem. I uploaded my Nikon transfer program with no problem, and first time had no problem loading photos. Second time the transfer prompter did not come up on the screen. My manual said something about having a fully charged battery. I tried re-charging my camera battery, and tried again. It worked! The program came up and my photos uploaded.
