    My camera takes the picture but nothing is on the card. The battery is full and blinks for several seconds when turned on and when button pressed. I have rest the camera and re formatted the card using the format buttons on the camera but no use. The LCD on top does not show pic counter and the back LCD will not turn on. The camera was used a few times since purchased over yr ago.

Do the pics show when you press the playback button? Does the menu display? If the display works, then check the menus to see whether image review got turned off. If the display doesn't work, it needs to be repaired/replaced.

D80 Monitor does not function as view finder.


To be able to do what you want, your camera would have to have a feature called "live view"....yours does not.

Tip

How to take best pictures.


1. The best pictures can be taken with a tripod and using self timer or the remote control of the camera.

2. Some people think that the best picture can be taken with suddenly pressing the shutter. In reality it is not true. So the best pictures can only be taken with two steps. First, pressing half way and without not shaking the camera continuing on pressing the shutter. At last the camera takes picture. But a good photographer does not know the moment of taking the picture. He/She only knows and concentrates on not shaking the camera.

3. Best pictures can only be taken with an artistic point of view. Best photographers place the subjects to the most estetic point and the best estetic position.

4. Best pictures can only be taken without using the flash.

5. Best pictures can only be taken at the Golden Hour time. Golden Hour is the time period, starting with the Sun rise and ends after an hour. Second Golden Hour starts before an hour of Sun Set and ends with the Sun Set.

6. Best pictures can only be taken by a best photographer so you can never see a best photographer's portrait as a best picture.

7. Best pictures can not be taken with a most expensive camera but can be taken by a best working amateur photographer.

8. Best pictures can not be taken by professionals but can be taken by the professional amateurs.

9. Best pictures can only be taken with the camera which has a greater sensor size.

10. Best pictures can only be taken with a natural view of the objects.

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

In camera mode the display turns black and white, and so are the pictures taken. No setup changes seem to work. ???


You mean to say whatever photographs you click comes in black and white photograph or nothing at all comes. Go to camera select options select effects and then select normal. If still the photographs are black and white kindly comment back.

Black area in photograph


Unless you are using high-end Nikon Speedlights with camera and flash set for Auto FP High-Speed Sync, your top flash sync shutter speed on the D80 is 1/200 second. The black band you are seeing at faster shutter speeds is because the second curtain of the shutter begins to close before the first curtain reaches the fully-open position (which is when the flash fires). The higher the shutter speed, the shorter the gap between first and second curtains. To get full exposure with flash, there must be an instant when the shutter is fully open -- first curtain completed travel, second curtain not started yet.

"As the speed increases the final image should get lighter" applies to ISO speed. Higher shutter speeds mean less light reaching the sensor, but that's not the cause of the black bands.

Nikon D80-picture blurry in auto mode


jbenjack,
The D80 has a lot more settings to deal with and depending on the lens the depth of field may explain the blurry background (that is desired effect on a portrait) The view finder on the D80 is for composing the shot and has read outs for the settings. The LCD on the back is for playback and the menus, it doesn't work like a live view of what's being taken (on some newer and more expensive DSLRs it does preview on the big LCD) on smaller point & Shoot cameras that don't have a viewfinder they use the LCD as the viewfinder, does that make sense? If she has the manual you may want to faniliarize yourself with some of the features, start out on one at a time for the different modes so they make more sense, you can really appriciate the camera after that and respect what pro photographers do. The D80 is not a cheap camera and I personally know a couple of professionals that use it among their cameras. (lots of different lenses that cost many time more than the camera body) Have fun with it, and if you get into it you will find you can take some fantastic photos with it. Can you tell that I like that camera?

Nikon d80 LCD screen


Hello cherdh,

To disable those blinking spots, just press the up or down cursor keys at the back of the camera while in playback mode. You will get three different views. One shows the EXIF data (Image data) as an over lay on your photograph. Press the button again to go to histogram mode, with graphs. Press it again to go to a mode where some image data is on the bottom of the display with no blinkies on the image.

Those blinking black spots are called highlights in a photograph. They indicate the areas where your photograph is over-exposed, i.e. where there is too much light and the colours are washed out. It can be a good tool to get a good exposure. Keep clicking with different settings till you get an exposure without those blinking spots.

I hope this helps.

LCD monitor doesn't work


I'm uncertain of your problem, but you are aware that the LCD screen on the D80 doesn't open physically as some do.   Also, you will not see any live images on the screen, only after you have taken a shot.
