NikonNikon D80 DSLR camera : Nikon Europe has announced its most advanced consumer digital SLR yet, the D80, incorporating the very latest digital and photographic technologies from Nikon’s professional SLR family to deliver a high-performance interchangeable-lens camera. Highlights of the Nikon D80 include automated operation and advanced features that are dedicated to helping passionate amateur users fulfill their passion to create beautiful photographs and preserve special moments. The Nikon D80 features a new 10.2 effective megapixel DX Format CCD image sensor, taking levels of high resolution and sharp detail to new heights while also providing the user with the freedom and scope to crop creatively and print impressive enlargements.

The addition of Nikon's DX Format sensor and Nikon F bayonet lens mount design ensure unprecedented compatibility across the wide range of AF Nikkor and DX Nikkor lenses designed exclusively for Nikon digital SLR cameras. One of the major advances developed for the Nikon D80 is Nikon's own high-resolution image processing engine, which transforms colour independent analog pre-conditioning and high-precision 12-bit digital image processing algorithms to produce natural-looking images that benefit from faithful colour and tone reproduction. A dedicated high-performance processing chip greatly accelerates performance, but with lower power consumption, resulting in more pictures per battery charge.

Nikon's exclusive 3D Color Matrix Metering II ensures accurate automatic exposure control for ideal exposures, even in the most challenging lighting conditions using an onboard database of over 30,000 scenes from actual photography to calculate final exposure value. The D80's refined 11-area AF system ensures consistently fast and precise focus lock under varying shooting conditions, instilling greater confidence in getting the desired shot.

Continuous shooting at a rapid 3 frames per second in bursts of up to 100 JPEG (FINE M-size or smaller) images makes action photography a reality.

A new dedicated Zoom button makes it easy to preview images and assess sharpness at up to 25 times magnification.
