    Having the same problem. I use SB800 Flash, and it seems, that the max shutter speed stocked at 1/200 (max flash sync shutter speed) regardless of the setting in M or A mode. Yesterday it worked. Today its not. So its not a setting problem. Rather a bug in firmware??? Tried everything, reset, etc. Nothing helps.

    I tried turning my flash off and it lets me adjust the speed, but what about when I need my flash on?

Check that your flash is not up. Or if you have an external flash, turn it off.

Where is the aperture ring on d80 Nikon


If you are using an older lens the aperture ring will be close to the camera body when the lens is on the camera. In order to set the aperture with a D80 and older lens you must set the aperture ring to "22" or the highest number on the aperture ring available. For newer lenses there is no aperture ring. You set the aperture by setting the dial on the top left of the D80 to "A" for Aperture Priority. You then set the aperture by rotating the front dial on the right side of the camera under the shutter release button. On older lenses, after setting the aperture ring to the highest number, you then set the aperture in the same manner.

I am in the "s" mode for shutter speed priority and i cant change the shutter speed i use the scroll to get the arrow above the shutter speed on the view finder and from then i cant figure out how to...


Are you pressing the jog dial to save the setting? Here's what your book says:
  1. Turn the Mode dial to P, A, S, M, or C.
    The mode options are displayed.

  2. Use the jog dial:
    • Rotate the jog dial to move the cursor. autourg00230002id1608637.jpg
    • Press the jog dial to open a setting.
    • Rotate the jog dial to change the setting. autourg00230002id1608659.jpg
    • Press the jog dial to save the setting.
    NOTE: Available options are white. Unavailable options are grey. Red options are out of range and may cause unacceptable image/print quality. Adjust the value higher or lower until it turns yellow.

In manual mode cannot set shutter speed to


The "--" is the equivalent of the bulb setting with the remote control. The first press of the button opens the shutter and starts the exposure. Another press of the button closes the shutter and ends the exposure. This is so you don't have to hold the button down and risk a bird flying through the beam (and to conserve battery power).

Blurry action pictures


The sport setting uses a faster shutter speed to stop motion. However, if you have the ISO set to a low number and try to take action shots in dim light, they will be blurry. Either use auto ISO or use a higher number such as 400 or 800.

There is a message in front of my picture on the monitor


When viewing pictures in playback mode, simply turn the index finger dial (up by the shutter button) and this will change the 'mode' in which you view the pictures and should eventually get you to a setting where this information disappears.

Can't turn off/disable optimize image screen- nikon d80


Ok, all you need to do is:

1.Hold the camera normally like you would take a picture.

2.Turn it on and review a picture.

3. While looking at a picture, take your index (pointer) finger and rotate the front "wheel" right under the shutter release button. This switches the viewing mode, and should solve your problem.

Dark Picture


I am assuming the following two things.

1. The part was indoors.
2. You are using the 18-135 mm lens with the Nikon D80.

The problem with shooting indoors is that not enough light goes in through the lens to the filter. Solutions:

1. Use the flash with every shot. In case there is not flashlight available, use the on board flash. Press the top button behind the barrel on the camera. It has a lighting icon. It will pop open the flash. If you are in 'P', 'A', 'S' mode, the camera will sync the shutter speed with flash. If the camera is on auto mode (The green camera icon) the flash will pop up and fire by itself.

2. Use the lens with with lowest f stop, i.e. with bigger aperture.

3. Increase ISO. You ought to get usable photographs right up to 800. To change ISO, press the button on the back of the camera which says 'ISO' (Second button from bottom) and turn the primary command dial simultaneously to change ISO setting. Higher ISO speed = Lower shutter speed (But less clarity too).

Hope it helps.
