Turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You control the aperture from the camera body, as on a lens without an aperture ring. Turn the mode dial to M (manual). The camera's exposure meter will not work with this lens. You can use another lens to get an approximate exposure, or take pictures and review them and/or use the histogram to fine-tune the exposure. The camera won't autofocus, of course, but the in-focus indicator in the viewfinder will still light up to indicate proper focus.

HiI am sorry to hear, but you will have to some professional. Regarding your d80 has common problem of sequence unit defective. I believe that is the problem and your local repair shop would charge around $75 to 235 depend on what they really want to charge. Thanks and best regard!

How can i used the LCD monitor during taking pictures? as of present i am only using the viewfinder? pls help me set my cam...


The D80 does not have the LiveView feature to allow using the LCD monitor for taking the picture. Nikon introduced this feature with the D3 and D300, which came out well after the D80. You have to use the viewfinder.

Sorry if this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's just the way this camera works.

I recently purchased the D80 and had no problems, it worked great and took magnificant shots. However, the other day I turned it on and the viewfinder was now, dark and out of focus. The battery was fully...


Check the mirror. The image you see in the viewfinder comes through the lens, and is reflected by the mirror. If it's dirty, it will affect the image you see. When you take the picture, the mirror lifts up, the viewfinder image is interrupted, and the light from the lens goes to the image sensor. So...if the mirror is dirty, the picture will be fine but the viewfinder image will be dark or out of focus.

In the mountains, are you subjecting the camera to wide swings of temperature or humidity? These could cause your symptoms.

Make sure you are using a fully charged Nikon battery. Problems may sometimes happen with generic batteries. If you are using a Nikon batt, then seems you may need to bring this in for servicing

My Nikon D80's viewfinder stays black when camera is on. Playback


dj & izik13,
If you can both acces the settings menu let me know if you can change any of the settings. Have you tried to reset? To do it you have to turn on the camera and hold down the two buttons that have a green dot by them on the top by the shutter release (the +/- ) and the AF button by the top menu display for longer than 2 seconds, just remember you'll have to reset some of your favorite setting all over again, but it will get things back to the original factory settings. Let me know if that worked

D80 with nikkor 18-200, no picture


raatl, You mean the LCD on the back of the camera right?  The image that shows up (playback) can have the duration changed in the menu settings, it may have been turned off which is a choice as well that mode (not having the LCD on) extends shooting time which used to be a problem with the earl D70 and the earlier battery type.  The D80 doesn't have that issue, try experimenting with how much time you really need to have the display on, if you shoot and like to show the image to people set it longer or just hit the playback a couple of times as you are showing people.
