Description and review of the Nikon D80 Digital SLR Digital Camera
Advanced metering capabilities, brighter viewfinder system, enhanced AF performance, industry leading flash technology, superior ergonomics (camera handling) and expanded feature set are setting this camera above the competitors of its class.
It looks, feels, and act like a Nikon!
The traditional top LCD information display panel is a practical feature that we are familiar to see on Nikon digital cameras. It is a nice feature for when you want to check and adjust camera settings quickly without having to start pushing buttons in the menu and/or waiting for them to come on display.
We can recognize the design of the Nikon as it is maintaining an image that is consistent with the current lineup of Nikon digital SLR camera bodies like the Nikon models D50, D200 and D2Xs.
