No broken parts. Fully functional.


The Nikon D80 SLR Digital Camera features a 10.2 effective megapixel DX Format CCD image sensor that provides a high level of resolution and sharp detail, so users can have the freedom to crop creatively and print impressive enlargements. It features Nikon's high-resolution image processing engine and a dedicated high-performance processing chip that has been introduced to significantly accelerate performance on all levels. With a start up time of just 0.18 seconds and a shutter release lag time of approx. 80 milliseconds, the D80 delivers instant response.

It also provides continuous shooting at a rapid 3 fps, making action photography a reality and making this camera a must-have for photography enthusiasts.

Nikon's DX Format sensor and F bayonet lens mount design assures compatibility across the comprehensive range of AF and DX Nikkor lenses. The refined 11-area AF System (based on Nikon's advanced Multi-CAM 1000 AF Sensor Module) ensures consistently fast and precise focus lock in various shooting conditions, and Nikon's exclusive 3D Color Matrix Metering II ensures accurate automatic exposure control even in the most challenging lighting conditions.

Packing high performance and high resolution into a slimmer, more compact body, the D80 also remains true to Nikon's commitment to intuitive operation. The size, layout, and operation of all controls are designed for maximum ease-of-use. A large, bright viewfinder with large 0.94x magnification ensures the clearest view possible and a large 2.5" 230,000 pixel high-resolution LCD provides an ultra-wide 170° viewing angle from all directions. A RGB histogram display also assists in evaluating exposures with greater precision.

A user-friendly menu interface makes for easier operation, and menus can be customized using the "My Menu" setting. Furthermore, exclusive in-camera image editing features-such as D-Lighting and Red-eye correction-ensure consistently satisfying results and greater creative freedom without the use of a computer.
