    Hello Arkady!
    In the D80 review, there is the phrase “The Nikon D80 has white balance bracketing, flash bracketing, and flash combo, which is not the case in the D90 ″.
    The fact is that the D90 also has it all, in addition there is d-link bracketing, which the D80 does not have. So in terms of bracketing, the D90 will be cooler.
    PS. It's a shame for the D90 (I have it), why I ask you to adjust the review for the D80.

        Greetings Arkady! I have a nikon d 80, but I really want to buy a d40, and in principle there is a very good candidate. I studied reviews on both cameras, but it seems that you did not compare them head-on. Will it be the same purchase?

    I shot on many different Nikon models (except for the most prof.), And I want to say that the 80th gives the coolest and most pleasant colors. Which often do not even need to be processed (especially if there is enough light). Something similar to Fuji S5, S3 Pro

      I completely agree with SashOK! Just as Arkady is in love with the Nikon D40 because of its pleasant, juicy, vibrant picture, so the D80 is impossible not to love for the pleasant colors of the photos.
      Despite her age and lack of modernity compared to the gigapixel and high-standard masterpieces of our time, I do not want to part with it.
      On the contrary, you begin to appreciate this kind and cool camera for the soul more and more !!!

    I recently bought this miracle for 1000 rubles because of the CCD matrix. compared to my canon 350D Nikon in appearance is just a Mercedes! why they are compared on tests is not clear. these are different classes a little i think. Nikon has what I always wanted to limit the maximum ISO for working in semi-automatic modes A and S and limiting the minimum exposure to prevent smearing. Even my Canon 5D MII doesn't have this! I put on a Nikkor 3.3-5.6 lens which I removed from an old film camera and I still manage with it. If I get involved, you can buy something like 17-50mm F2.8, for example, and that will be enough for such a camera. I wonder, of course, what inexpensive lens you can take with FR in the region of 30-35mm. you can and non-autofocus.

      If you are interested in the fix, the most acceptable option is 35 1.8dx

      If the zoom, you can look (oddly enough) "push-button" 18-55 VR (only not AF-P, but the usual AF-S) - uncontested glass in terms of price-quality ratio, also oldies 35-105 and 28-105 (the latter has excellent macro for zoom) - lenses of the film era with a "bold" picture, can be useful when switching to fullframe, if Nikon goes over Canon)))

    Good afternoon! I have been using D80 for 15 years already. My main glass is 18-200. Outdoors, on hikes, trips, etc. I would like to go to 20 megapixels and it is very annoying that the D80 has difficulty focusing at dusk. It is clear that the camera is old and once it was super ...
    I still can't figure out what to change - for FF or crop? Stay F or go Z?
    I like the bundle Z50 + DX50-250 - light, compact ... repetition of mine, but modern. But DX lenses for Z are few. I don't want to use the adapter. On the other hand, FF with light glasses beckons. And then it's probably a used DSLR.

        2Joe is not a “professional” himself, but he is familiar with many comrades who are involved in that area - and so, “professionals” speak in the way that is convenient for them, and as everyone else understands. If one person says “carcass” or “lens”, to another who is in the same circle of interests, it is immediately clear that this is not a raccoon carcass or a magnifying glass in a pocket magnifier.

        And to find fault with the slang usual for photographers can only complete formalists, who are often not very good photographers, but are not lazy to throw ordinary photos in flickr of 60-70 + groups, for the sake of collecting ten to fifteen likes, right?))

        Rather the opposite. Nikon is better than other cameras adapted to manual glasses.
        1. the jump rope works
        2. There is confirmation of focus
        3. With D90 there is exposure metering
        4. With the D7000 (of course, we are talking about amateur cameras), automatic metering works
        5. There are a lot of manual optics with an F mount, both native and third-party, and even soviet. All of it becomes without adapters, without alteration.

    Hello. I would like to ask what is better to take. There is a choice for 1,5t.r to buy Telear-N 200mm f3.5, fully working, and according to the seller's assurances, in good condition. Or Nikon AF-S DX nikkor 18-55mm f / 3.5-5.6G VR with a defect, the focusing unit dangles if you move it specifically, and does not focus at 55mm, but already at 53mm everything is fine. I want any of this for the Nikon D80. It is planned to shoot close-ups, or portraits, and rarely anything else. Manual shooting is not scary, only the lack of exposure metering scares, and a little selection of the shutter speed on a 200mm lens (will it smear a lot?)

    Reply

    • B. R. P.
      07.07.2021

      Neither one nor the other is suitable for macro. For a portrait, 200mm on the crop is too long, the blur will be strong, the shutter speed is from 1/320 and shorter. It makes no sense to take 18-55 with such a defect, you can find a working version for an inexpensive one.

      Televik as the only portraitist is not suitable. The arms and legs of the models will be visually short in any poses where they are exposed to the side of the camera due to the flattening of the perspective by the lens. And in general, 200 mm as the only one, and even on the crop, except for those who like to shoot birds or for the paparazzi.

      If from affordable manuals, on Nikon as the only one for the first time, you can recommend Helios 81H. It has a Nikon mount, no infinity problems, and a good aperture ratio of 2.0. The portraits are good, but for macro you can buy macro rings.

    Ergonomically, the camera is much inferior to the D90

    For me, the most significant drawbacks in this camera are:

    1) The inability to invert the metering scale so that “-” was on the left, and “+” on the right.

    2) The inability to invert the operation of the tuning wheels, so that when rotating from left to right, there is an increase (aperture / shutter speed)

    3) There is no native display of ISO on the info screen and in the viewfinder (to view the ISO, you need to press the function key (having previously set the ISO to it), while you cannot change the ISO while the function key is pressed.

    4) You can change ISO only by pressing the “ISO” key, while the ISO value is not displayed in the viewfinder.

    5) You cannot change ISO in “A” mode without pressing the “ISO” key

    Whale 18-135mm sold, I wish I did it earlier.
    I liked the D80 color with the 50mm 1.8D Nikkor and did not like it at all with the 50mm 1.4D.
    By the way, on Nikon D2Xs, on the contrary, I liked the picture with 50mm 1.4D, and with 50mm 1.8D in color, something is felt that is not right.
    IMHO D80 is imprisoned for a portrait, a reportage with people. Sometimes you get beautiful photos that do not require modification (I develop them in Photoshop because camjpeg and Capture NX2 give overwound blue and red).

    Hello Arkady! Could you help? I bought a Nikon D80 in good condition, everything works. But with a Nikon AF 85mm f / 1.4D lens, it does not shoot. I tried with other lenses (for example, Nikon 18-105mm 1: 3.5-5.6G ED) everything is fine. With Fuji S5Pro, this lens also works great. Maybe I need to purchase a DX lens for this camera? I’m thinking about Nikon 35mm f / 1.8G DX (there is a portrait (127,5 in “full-frame” equivalent)), I want a “fifty kopeck”.

        I hope you have the aperture ring on the lens fixed in the correct position? (since it works on Pryatka) Here, it seems, it’s not a screwdriver, but a chip on the lens in the service you need to look.

      to control the aperture from the camera (f / 16 in this case), the wheel is turned all the way?

      Yes, thanks, it worked!

      Thank you all and have a nice day (summer) and good shots!

    Greetings. Bought a D80 with an ERR problem when turned on. When the shutter is pressed, it does not make any reaction or sounds. Repairmen write that almost 99% of cases of this problem are a breakdown of the program gear or gear on the motor nearby. Dismantled, got to the gears, and there everything is ideal. When disassembling, I also did not find any shortcomings, the fotik is clearly unused.
    Question: what else can be broken?

    Arkady, I think it would be worth opening a repair section so that people share their problems and help each other find solutions.
    I myself already had several home repairs and trips to the SC, and in our quiet swamp on Radozhiv there is not even a separate section on the topic;)

      A bit tight in a quiet swamp with repairmen) and the site is not about that, you can find other resources on the internet. You should not buy remotely, especially potentially problematic cameras. The problem here is the human factor, not the technical one.

        Why is it dumb? Surely many have already tinkered)
        on other resources, everyone with a software gear is worn, so I did not find an answer.
        I am the owner of a fairly large fleet of Nikonov, so I decided to learn how to fix breakdowns from those that can be fixed by myself. And I started with simple carcasses like D70, 3000, 80. Well, don’t start with flagships when it comes!) I successfully repaired the first 2, laptop repair skills affected. And here with the D80, nothing is clear yet

        Thank you!
        In general, it was a gear)
        it was just that the breakage did not look very obvious visually, the plastic rivet was still held in place. in total, 3 out of 3 cameras succumbed to repair. And now it's not so scary to fix it

        Cool! Vivat lovers-repairmen! I also recently had a problem - the sb400 flash was stuck on the d600: the LOC lever on the flash is not fixed in the extreme positions, it is not removed from the photo. I think trying to disassemble the flash to the shoe, I'm afraid the flash will not endure this. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

        I said, it is necessary to make a separate branch for repairs)
        For example, pages separately nikon, kenon, other cameras, lenses, flashes, etc.
        It’s a pity I can’t tell you by flash, I can only say that it’s good to watch a video or photo review of the disassembly. They will often tell you where the dumb train or spring is, which can break or jump off. Well, attentiveness, and also after disassembly, do not really pull the rubber and assemble it back, because. sometimes you quickly forget the moments where something sticks out, where it is inserted and with what effort.
        I also liked the theme of pre-drawing a disassembled instance on a sheet and inserting bolts into this sheet in those places where they need to be screwed later. Cameras, for example, have a feature, a lot of very similar bolts, but of different lengths and with different threads

    I want to share my impression of the D80 after the D600.

    1. Technically inferior in sensitivity and dynamic range. But this doesn’t matter, because the color in the dark will be dead (on any camera). At the same time, the Ravs are quite drawn to the light and shadows. I set the correction to -1.5EV and so far everything is fine.

    2. The camera is a little slower (working in the menu, with captured frames, etc.). This also does not play a special role.

    3. The monitor is of quite high quality and its resolution is sufficient for assessing sharpness, and its functionality is sufficient for assessing exposure, overexposure, etc. Still, this is an advanced camera and its functionality is pleasing.

    4. It is not possible to make changes to the front/back. This can be a disaster, as many cameras are guilty of this. They say that a small back focus (which is better than the front) was already adjusted at the factory. I have back focus, which is invisible at close distances (up to a couple of meters) and increases from 10 meters, mainly on zooms. This is not a problem for me, but you have to choose carefully!

    5. The camera size is approximately the same as a mirrorless FF. This makes me happy.

    I'm glad I bought the d80. I like the textured noise at ISO200 and the color. Autofocus as a whole, of course, corresponds to the class and age of the camera. But this is a camera for fun, not for making money. Overall, it's a great camera. Moreover, the fashion for techno-wanking in photos is long gone. Just go and shoot)

      Comparing a relatively new full frame and a very ancient crop is a strange thing) If the D600 is quite possible even now to shoot almost anything as the main camera, then cameras like the D80 are bought for fun for the soul. A weekend camera for a leisurely walk outside the city. Despite its age, it’s pleasant to use, except for the completely blind display from which you can’t understand anything, just look at the histogram to see if something has been knocked out) Here even the D3300 can do it.

    The d80 and d200 matrices are still different.

    Despite the years, the camera is pleasant to use, even interesting) Chic VI with lines of thirds, thanks to it, frames for a panorama are taken perfectly smoothly, you almost never miss the horizon. Of course, it is very outdated in all respects, but it is more than good for the soul.
