Excellent, reliable and robust,
This review is from: Nikon D80 Digital SLR Camera (18-135mm Lens Kit) (Camera)
What an excellent, reliable and robust camera. I have owned a Nikon D80 for around a year now and have found it to perform excellently in all areas of photography.I took a photography course just after purchasing this camera and found that the control that I had over the camera was inspiring. But to be honest, even in automatic 'point and shoot' mode the photos were excellent thanks to the awesome 11 point focussing system.
The battery life is incredible, the grip on the camera perfect, and the weight really gives it a sturdy feel that allows the camera to handle so well that it actually feels tailor made just for you.
There is a comprehensive set of peripherals and extras available which allow the camera to grow in potential as you do.
For a beginner or a serious amateur, or even an entry level pro, I cannot imagine a better camera.I have used mine in every comceivable situation and it is a joy to work with.
Look at the professional reviews on the net and you'll see what I mean.
A seriously good all-rounder - buy one and you'll see.
