Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
I apologize for this if it is a stupid question, but I could have sworn that you can view potential images on the lcd monitor before taking a picture. I know that you can review photos once taken, but I had hoped to see the possible shot throght the monitor. Is this possible with the D80?
Thanks and Merry Christmas!
Not a stupid question, on other low end "point-and-shoot" cameras that is the norm especially if there isn't a viewfinder to look thru to compose the shoot or determine the focal point, which is the reason you buy a DSLR camera, it's more professional and you use the viewfinder info as well as the menu items on the LCD when shooting. You can view your shots immediately after and then determine if you need to shoot again. Just like the older film cameras with the advantage that you don't have to wait to process your pictures to find out someone blinked or that it just wan't well composed. Enjoy your new camera and celebrate your moving into taking better photos. Holding the camera away looking at the viewfinder isn't a good idea to photgraph anyway, it's not as stable and you will get some blurry shots on lower light situations.

Impossible. The D80 is an SLR which means there is a real shutter curtain blocking the imaging array, essentially 'blindfolding' the array.It cannot see the image until the shutter is opened. Nikon just introduced a new SLR that can do live view mode, if you want to spend a couple of grand.
