Steve's DigicamsNikon D80 review at Steves Digicams : Our good friends at Steves Digicams have published their review of the Nikon D80 digital SLR. The 10.2 Megapixel Nikon D80 features a DX Format CCD image sensor and Nikon's own high-resolution image processing engine. A new dedicated high-performance processing chip accelerates performance on all levels, while also achieving lower power consumption, assuring more pictures per battery charge. Nikon's 3D Color Matrix Metering II ensures accurate automatic exposure control for ideal exposures, even in the most challenging lighting conditions. The Nikon D80 incorporates a 11-area AF system which adds effective new focusing options that will instill greater confidence in getting the desired shot.

According to Steve Digicams: "The Nikon D80 is labeled as an amateur dSLR, but don't let that fool you. You can let your creativity run wild with this model's wide range of manual controls. Parameters such as Metering mode, Focus mode, and AF-area mode, Center AF area mode, give you extensive control over the camera's auto exposure and auto focusing functions. Even in its automatic Vari-Program modes, the D80 allows the photographer to control focusing functions and ISO. In addition, the D80 provides 32 Custom Settings that allow you to personalize its operation to fit your shooting style and subjects."

Nikon D80 review conclusion - Steves Digicams
Steve continues: "I was very pleased with our image quality results. The D80's 10.2-megapixel sensor captures beautiful photos that, when using the in-camera JPEG/Fine mode, show accurate exposure and pleasing color saturation. The 11-area AF system was fast and accurate, and combined with the very nice 18-135mm kit lens, produced nice sharp images. Image noise was low, especially at ISO speeds below 800, becoming more noticeable as the sensitivity is raised. Luckily the D80 features in-camera High ISO noise reduction which helps reduce these negative effects. To see the D80 really shine, you need to shoot in RAW formatand then use a program like Nikon Capture NX." You want to learn more about the Nikon digital SLR camera?
