Fans of the Nikon D70s have welcomed the introduction of the D80, because of the many improvements on the already popular camera. The Nikon D80 was unveiled in September of 2006 and has, for the most part, been received with open arms. Keep reading for a closer look.
Nikon was able to squeeze all of the necessary features into this digital SLR camera, and they still managed to keep the price under $1000. This camera is designed for use by beginner SLR photographers, and it seems to fit well in that category.
The D80's attractive look, 10.2 megapixel CCD imaging sensor, and great features make it a very tough competitor in the entry to mid-level SLR digital camera category. The D80 fits nicely in between the D40 and the D200, which are entry level and professional SLRs made by Nikon. The D80 is definitely based on the D70, but with added features and updates.
The only downside to the D70 to D80 upgrade is that the shutter speed is a bit slower in the newer D80. To the average photographer, this fact would probably not even be noticed since it's only a small difference in speeds between the two models. The difference in upgrades and new features more than makes up for the slight loss of shutter speeds between the two cameras.
