nikon D80
I purchased a battery power grip for a nikon d80 and it came with very little info.The battery cover on the nikon needs to come off.It said to open the lid at a 45 degree angle and remove.I sure dont want to break it.Is there a screw that needs to come out or does the lid just pop out? I tried just opening the lid and then with little pressure tried removing the lid but was afraid of breaking it.Does anyone know? Thanks so much..

I purchased a battery power grip for a nikon d80 and it came with very little info. Did you see the instructions on page 123 of the D80 owner's manual? The battery cover on the nikon needs to come off.It said to open the lid at a 45 degree angle and remove. In the D80 manual, it says a 35-degree angle. It probably isn't critical to get it exact though. I sure dont want to break it.Is there a screw that needs to come out or does the lid just pop out? I think if there were a screw, the instructions in the D80 manual would say so. Nikon is pretty good about things like that.

1-800-NIKON-UX (1-800-645-6689). Support from Nikon is free, and the call is toll free. You can't beat that. They may ask for your serial number, so have it ready...

In nikon D80 package...does the lens includes hood lens?..

Unfortunately, there is no screw or anything so simple on the battery cover hinge.

You have to fiddle with it and keep adjusting the angle until it comes away with a little pressure (note I said only a little).

It took me ages to do it first time but I've taken the battery grip off a few times since and the cover has gone back on again without being loose...

Hi Nikon D80 Forum.

I have just bought a nikon d80 and I have sat trying to learn this complicated camera. I need help from some more experienced users please. I am not a tutorial fast learner I learn by doing now my problem is I cannot get the monitor on to view the picture I would like to take. I can view the pics on the monitor in review so I know it works. But how do I get it to work for setting up my shot. Please help I have to look through the view finder to take my pic. All help would be appreciated I am pulling my hair out...

Odette, The D80 does not have live view. You cannot preview the image on the LCD monitor. The only Nikon SLRs with that feature so far are the D300 and D3...

Believe me. I spent months trying to figure out why my shots were coming out bad. THen I wound Kem Rockwells D80 operating Manual and downloaded it. Now I keep it on my Desktop for quick reference, It's wonderful and free!! Go to his site below.

Hi people,.

I'm about to buy a camera, probably a D80. Does anyone know if there is a new version of this camera coming out soon? Because if it is in the next few months I would wait for the new version...

If one looks at past trends, it seems likely that the D80 is nearing the end of it's production but there have been no announcements as such. It seems reasonable that there will be a "little brother" to the D300 as the D80 was to the D200 and several other cameras, not just the Nikons. The unknowns are just how close it will be to the D300 in performance and much more it will cost compared to the D80, etc. Those who have firm information on future releases aren't talking. I doubt there will be anything else announced tid to the Olympics and the D80. Photokina is coming at the end of September and that might suggesting waiting a while unless you have some immediate needs.

With the D80, waiting a bit may be a good idea...
