Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens
I have tried a lot of different approaches to try to isolate and/or fix this problem. I have used 3 different lenses. Set up on tripod. Changed the ISO from one extreme to another. Used Auto ISO, tried both manual and auto focus. I took my camera to a local Wolf camera store and had them check it out. Same results...soft focus even though the image appears sharp and in focus in the VF. I can clean it up quite a bit using software, but I should have to do this. I should be able to get a sharply focused image to start. Any thoughts?
This is the procedure to do Hard reset...
Find the two buttons with green dots next to them on the top right of the D80. They are the +/- * and AF * buttons. Hold them both down for a few seconds. The top LCD blinks and everything is back to normal.
If u forget it u may have the resolution or White Balance or ISO or God knows what set to something screwy and spoil all ur shots. u can also face see WB problems on the LCD, but won't notice until u leave D80 at ISO 1,600 from the night before. That's why u should always use reset.
Reset leaves the detailed menu tweaks alone. It's smart enough to reset only the big dumb things..
Reset resets flash exposure compensations and sync modes, but doesn't reset any screwy settings you may have made in Custom Setting 22 for remote or manual flash. Reset resets mostly everything tactical, which is mostly you see on the top LCD. It leaves alone strategic items like languages, file numbering and Optimize Image settings..

I think the only one to fix that is to reset the program or the chips inside by using a program in the system. Because the problems of this in only a soft focus.. i think this is not a reason to make some adjustment but i tell you if you a program to restore it settings, maybe could be better.
