Buying the Camera When it comes to talking about film cameras, the Nikon F80 (also known as N80 in the states) is particularly new as it came onto the market in the year 2000. In terms of camera models, that may seem like a long time ago, but with the rise and dominance of the DSLRs, Bridge...

“Nikon F80”

published 07/11/2005

Lightweight and Easy to use piece of Craftsmanship

Perhaps not a durable as previous models

Nikon have expertise in camera manufacture and development that is not really comparable to other makes. They have developed their own metering systems and methods that others have just copied. The F80 continues this tradition and it really is a magnificent camera for both the Professional and...

“A passion for photography”

published 13/10/2002

Quality camera, excellent range of accessories

Quite pricey (oh go on, treat yourself!)

I had been looking for a decent SLR camera for a while before I finally decided on the Nikon F80. It is slightly more expensive than your average SLR (single lens reflex) camera, but with all the extra features, I think it is worth splashing out. Here are some of them. The camera When you first...

“Sparkling all-rounder”

published 16/01/2005

Really well featured, superb exposure

AF struggles with larger lenses

Nikon never seemed to be able to make a decent mid-range AF camera. You could buy a camera with a good feature set (F601) but the AF was poor and the motordrive painful to hear. The F70 improved the AF and was quieter but alienated buyers with it's quirky control panel (actually really simple but...

Like most people who have bought this camera in the last few years I bought this second hand on eBay for about £80 with a zoom lens, which I soon swapped for a 50mm standard lens. For someone like me who had only used digital cameras and manual film SLR cameras before, using this it came as a...

“For the enthusiastic amateur”

published 02/07/2003

High quality optics, good range of features

Built in flash

After many years using a fully manual, second hand Olympus OM30 I decided to take a step up and get a good quality mid-range SLR. The Nikon F80 did everything I hoped for. I did not have a fortune to spend but wanted something as good as possible for the price. It was important for me to have...

“The Best in the Price Range”

published 06/03/2003

Lots of features, sturdy build, quality optics

Price, weight, poor built-in flash

I replaced a 15 year old Olympus OM40 with this brand spanking new Nikon F80 and rediscovered my passion and interest in Photography. The quality of optics on this camera is very much in line with the Nikon reputation and is comparable with some more expensive models. The plethora of modes and...

Pro specifications

Made in Thailand!!

When I first adopt photography as a hubby I was disappointed that my camera then, which was Olympus IS21, lacks almost 85% of the specs and moves that I read about in photography books and magazines. Every time I read about a creative technique I run to my camera to apply what I have learned, but...

Super

Very quick auto focus and low price

none

I bought this camera 8 years ago and I am still using it from time to time. I have always good experience with this camera although I use a digital one now - Nikon D200. With the standard Nikkor lens f3.5-5.6 28-80 it gives you well exposed and sharp pictures. The small flash light installed to...

“Good camera for amateur.”

published 21/09/2003

Light weight and easy to use.

The built-in flash light is not useful.

This camera is light weight and easy to use. Probably the best in the range. Is a good one for amateur photographer. Range of aperture and shutter speed is good enough for most of the picture shooting. Camera body is well designed. I like to hold it very much. The custom settings allowed users to...
