Nikon D80 gives F-- error

My Nikon D80 gives f-- error while photographing. I have not used the camera much at all. I have found that if I take the lense off, and clean the contact surfaces with alcohol/Q-tip it help for quite some time. I have a finite solution for my camera: I'm about to sell it, and buy a Canon EOS 50D. Good luck to you all.

    What lens are you using? If it isn't a G series lens - ie it has an aperture scale it may be the aperture is slipping away from its required auto setting onto a specific aperture. I've got a D80 and I think it's a better camera than the comparable Canon....

I had the same problem and it started as soon as I took it out of the box.... It was a contact error between the lens and the camera. I called Nikon and sent it back. They fixed it and it hasn't happened since.

Which is the best model of nikon for a professional and how much will the whole thing cost


That's like asking what's the best flavor of ice cream.
The best model Nikon for a sports photographer most likely will not be the best model Nikon for a portrait photographer. A photojournalist might opt for a different model.

My nikon camera keep got error and dont have the


You have not provided enough information, what is the error read? If it shows ERR then: The ERR message is not a good thing. Read page 132 of the D80 Manual. Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector is the reset switch. If that does not work call Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689.

Nikon D80 Err


You did not mention what error mesage you got. If it is a flashing "F--" then it has something to do with your lens.

This usually happens to lenses that have an aperture ring. Do the following:

1. Turn off your camera.
2. Move the aperture ring clockwise and lock it
3. Turn on the camera and see if this works

If this does not work, unlock the aperture ring and move it counter-clockwise then lock it again.

This should fix your problem

Error message r07 on D80


Hi,

his isn't an error message. R04 or R07 or R[any number] refers to the number of shots you can take before you're camera's internal memory buffer is full.

As you're taking pictures, you're camera is writing to your memory card. When you are taking burst photographs, all the other photos you've just taken are "waiting in line" to get written to your card. If your buffer is full, the camera will not let you take another shot until it's finished writing the photo to the card.

Your camera's ability to write to the memory card is only as fast as the memory card itself as well as the quality of the photos (RAW vs. JPEG).

Sports photographers usually shoot in JPEG because they are taking a lot of shots relatively quickly and if their camera freezes then they can lose a shot.

the R means remaining, so R03 three shots remaining/left before the buffer is full.
Switching off the NR high iso and long exposure. buying a 166x card or faster will help but you won't see it on the counter.
If you do the above and switch to jpeg only it goes up.
you won't do this but, the above and quality to basic and small gives R51.
But if you shoot raw its R06 at best.

Any further help, let me know.

Problem using lens hood


Maybe because the manual authors assumed the reader would use the built in flash instead of the one you slide into the top which is ok with lens hood.

Deh778 question about Rgb histogram not turning off.


If you haven't solved the histogram issue by pressing the multi selector up or down or rotating the sub-command dial to choose photo information display then OK.  The D80 is a very reliable "prosumer" camera meaning it's more than a consumer model offering better quality and features commonly found on professional camera models, if you are a budding photographer and desire more control over the images you take and the options to take creative images working with the amount of light, the shutter speed and may other aspects the pros do then it's worth it, if those features are not important then having all the control might be a problem if that isn't what you are after.  Early digital cameras were pretty poor quality and could never compare to film cameras, even the early model D70 had some issues with battery life.  Take the time to learn about this camera and you will be very happy.  I know several professional photographers who use the D80 and find Nikon stands behind the camera.  If you have any other specific problems or issues let me know, I'd be glad to go over them.
