Re: deh778 question about Rgb histogram not turning off.
If you haven't solved the histogram issue by pressing the multi selector up or down or rotating the sub-command dial to choose photo information display then OK. The D80 is a very reliable "prosumer" camera meaning it's more than a consumer model offering better quality and features commonly found on professional camera models, if you are a budding photographer and desire more control over the images you take and the options to take creative images working with the amount of light, the shutter speed and may other aspects the pros do then it's worth it, if those features are not important then having all the control might be a problem if that isn't what you are after. Early digital cameras were pretty poor quality and could never compare to film cameras, even the early model D70 had some issues with battery life. Take the time to learn about this camera and you will be very happy. I know several professional photographers who use the D80 and find Nikon stands behind the camera. If you have any other specific problems or issues let me know, I'd be glad to go over them.

The up and down arrows on the multi-function button on the back of the camera set the image on the display. With the display on, press the up or down arrow to function through the display settings and the stop on the one you want.
This often happens when you accidentally hit one of the arrow buttons while taking the picture and this changes the display image to the histogram or other display setting.
Highlight is just the info mode, there are several info modes including Basic file info, Shooting Info and RGB histogram, just press the round controller in the up or down direction to change between them in playback mode. Highlight will flash black anywhere there is pure white in an image. Try resetting the camera by pressing the 2 buttons with green dots (on top of the camera near the shutter release) holding them for a few seconds.
I had this problem too and then I figured it out. If you click on the up button it pulls up your histogram, just keep pressing it till it shows just the picture. I will scroll through the index, histogram, highlight, and then normal. Hope this helps.
It's not hard... I had the same problem, but I found this solution on the internet and it worked. First turn on the camera and press the play button.
You are now viewing your picture with the histogram.
Use the same joystick looking kind of button that you use to scroll left and right through the pictures, but instead of going left and right, go UP OR DOWN. That scrolls through the different display settings.
Have you had the picture printed at a local photo lab. Try that and see if it's your computer/printer matching.
You may have to see if the Camera is set for Adobe RGB (or RGB) and your computer/printer is set for Adobe RGB or sRGB. These need to match. There's a new world with color matching that the point and shoot don't do.
Hope this helps. I could regurgitate all about Color Matching, but why when someone else has it all written out.
