Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

1 Answer

My D80 works great except for when I am viewing the pictures I have taken on the display, the white areas of the picture "flash" on and off. Anyone else seen this?

Yes. But I don't think this is an error. It is only to excessive lit areas

Intermittent blanking on pictures displayed


There's nothing wrong. The blinking areas are blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that the camera thinks are overexposed.
While viewing the picture, press cursor-up/down to cycle through the different views of your picture.

I have D80, in my display when viewing photo's any white colors are flashing from black to white. Any solutions?


You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are areas where you've irrevocably lost data due to overexposure. If too much of the picture is blown out, you may want to reduce exposure some and shoot again to preserve the data.

You can press up or down on the multiselector to change your view. The camera provides several different views of your images, including data, histogram, and, as you've discovered, highlights.

D80-viewer and display stay black, the flash


If your camera got moisture inside and you turned it on before it had a chance to completely dry (usually takes several days) you may have caused a short circuit.

Hello,

If this is the same as my Nikon this is the overexposed highlight display option.
This shows areas of the photograph that are overexposed slightly.

On my Nikon I use the up and down arrows on the back to cycle the LCD display options.
Stop when you get a display that does not flash.

As for the focus problem check if you have set the front control to AF not M, also check if the lens is set to A not M.

Nikon D80 no picture number in LED & menu not working


Format the SD cards with the camera. You might have to do a software upgrade on the camera since the Kodak card files are different than Nikons.

You're not nuts. I saw a guy activate live view on the d80 while doing a demonstration on a Youtube tutorial. I just can't seem to find the video nor how to activate Live View on my camera. I think I'll try contacting Nikon directly

Control Panel display no information.


Do you mean the control panel on top or the big LCD on the back?

The display on top should be showing you stuff like the shutter speed and aperture as you take the picture.

The display on the back will not show you the picture while you're taking it. The D80 does not have a Live View capability.

Pictures are blur


Hi,

Your pictures are blurry because the camera did not focus properly on the subject.

First, turn on the camera in any picture taking mode (or video mode), then look at the screen or viewfinder. There should be four white corners in the center of the camera display. This is your targeting area.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Aim the camera at your subject so this center area is directly on it.

2. Press the shutter button lightly, not all the way down. Wait for a second or two WITHOUT RELEASING YOUR FINGER. If the white corners turn green, keep the finger on the button and press it all the way.

(Once the screen flashes black, a picture is taken and you can release the finger).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If the targeting area turns red and blinks, then the camera has not focused. You can to try to focus again by following step 1 and 2. If a picture is taken when the targeting area is red, then the picture will be blurry.

If there is no targeting area, then you can still focus by aiming the camera at your subject. Now follow step 2. A green box will appear on the subject, then a sharp picture can be taken.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The red arrow that flashes means that the pictures or videos are being written onto the memory card.

Also, try to be steady when taking pictures, because slight hand movement can cause blurry images too.

Page 25 in the DMC-FZ7's english manual will also explain how to focus.
