Exposure have d80 and sometimes the exposure is perfect -- other times part of the photo exposure is good and part isn't. this is most noticable outside -- my lastest problem is a halo effect around one of the heads of a subject while the rest of the subjects were fine. any help would be appreciated.

Is your lens clean? was the subject extensively backlit, more than the rest? Half of photography is finding a location with even, pretty lighting. If lack of experience is your issue, check out this page: http://www.darjanpanic.com/photography/photography-lighting-knowledge-the-key-to-good-photos/
Otherwise... D80s are just... quirky. If it's a serious issue, send it into nikon - it costs all of 10 dollars to do so for a quote. Good luck. :)

You can't. The Portrait mode, like all the other point&shoot modes, are automatic. The camera controls most functions, like exposure metering, auto-focus mode, and white-balance. If you want control over the camera, you'll have to use one of the PSAM modes.

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.

Looks focused but isn't


Try this.

Switch D80 on.
Reset the camera by pressing the two buttons with a green dot beneath them on the top of the D80, right hand side.
The buttons are AF and +-.
These must be pressed together at the same time for a few seconds.
This is just in case you have set something strange, you do not need to do this all the time.

Set the command dial to Auto.
Set the button on the lower front/left hand side to AF.
Set the lens to A.

Now you can just take pictures, the D80 will autofocus and set the exposure itself.

Display is blank


I can take perfect pictures indisde a building, but taking a picture outside, I can see the item but if I take the picture and looking at the picture the screen turns blank, seems to me that there is to much light exposure.

D80 shutter issue


contactjoni,
Your shutter will stick if it gets dirty or dust gets in the camera, a reputable camera shop can inspect the shutter, the sensor for dust & dirt and can clean it for you. If the battery is low while shooting the shutter can also stick on longer exposures.

Over-exposure with AF Nikkor 70-300 telephoto


Friends have you tried not using the A-Aperture mode?? Set in on P-for Program or M-for Manual, this should produce the colors you are hoping for. If your photo is still "hot" use the + or - button called the Exposure compensation button on the top of the camera, push that little button and turn the outside main control dial where your right thumb sits 1 third stop at a time, (you have 4 to 5) The + adds light to your photo and the - will make your photos darker play with that and let me know.

Nikon D80 Exposure Count


My camera is now fixed. It was a tiny speck of dirt on the sensors between the mounting of the lense & the camera. The uy that fixed it said it is a problem with the camera because they are so sensitive.
