Commonly the users, rate Nikon D80 in 4 - 4.5 score out 5 scale
Nikon D80 comes to replace Nikon D70s. Memory card : flash cards. The new Nikon D80 features 10.2
megapixel DX format CCD (1.5x FOV crop), 11-area AF system (new version of
Multi-CAM 1000, similar to D200), Compact body (smaller, lighter than D70/D70s),
improved user interface, and 2.5? 230,000 pixel TFT LCD with 170 degree viewing
This camera has a removable protective cover.
For complete detail of this product you can get from this web address:
Must be a problem with the flash lock. Try to pop up the flash manually using the flash button located at the top left of the camera beside the flash. If this does not work, you may need to have the cam serviced
Unless you are using high-end Nikon Speedlights with camera and flash set for Auto FP High-Speed Sync, your top flash sync shutter speed on the D80 is 1/200 second. The black band you are seeing at faster shutter speeds is because the second curtain of the shutter begins to close before the first curtain reaches the fully-open position (which is when the flash fires). The higher the shutter speed, the shorter the gap between first and second curtains. To get full exposure with flash, there must be an instant when the shutter is fully open -- first curtain completed travel, second curtain not started yet.
"As the speed increases the final image should get lighter" applies to ISO speed. Higher shutter speeds mean less light reaching the sensor, but that's not the cause of the black bands.
The -E- just means that there is no SD card in the camera. There is also a setting that prevents the camera from attempting to take a shot without a card, and I assume that represents your flash in the viewfinder.
That particular unit is probably not a good choice for the D80 because the trigger voltage (the electricity which flows from the flash through the camera circuits to fire the flash) is 19.5 volts, according to http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html - this could possibly damage your camera electronics.
You don't have to stick with Nikon brand Speedlights, but get a modern flash which says it is I-TTL compatible for Nikon.
All old lenses will work on the D90 the same way they work on the D80. Filters depend on the lens -- they either fit or they don't -- the camera has nothing to do with that. I wouldn't use old flashes on new DSLRs.
There really is no difference between the D80 and the D90 as far as lenses and flashes are concerned.
I also purchased a Bower 724AFN to use with my D80, and experience the same problems. Received confirmation from Nikon that this flash unit is not compatible with the camera. I then purchased an SB-600 flash, and haven't looked back. It's worth the extra money for this high quality unit; fully compatible, and compliments the TTL features of the D80. I'll never deviate from original Nikon accessories again.
