It’s Official: Nikon D80 Debuts Today

Nikon D80

Nikon today officially introduced the much-anticipated Nikon D80 DSLR camera featuring the latest digital and photographic technologies.

The Nikon D80 has 10.2 megapixels, 2.5-inch LCD screen, near instant power-up time of 0.18 second, shutter lag of only 80-milliseconds, and a friendlier and customizable menu interface for easier operation.

“The new model inherits many advantageous qualities from Nikon’s latest professional digital SLR cameras, including colour independent analog pre-conditioning and high-precision 12-bit digital image processing algorithms. These combine to produce natural-looking images built on faithful colour and tone reproduction”, according to Nikon press release.

“While it is very similar to its predecessor, the Nikon D70s, and sports the higher 10.2 megapixel resolution of the D200, the Nikon D80 is replete with new features and advances in overall quality that make it a great upgrade for D50 and D70 owners”, says Shawn Barnett of Imaging Resource.

The Nikon D80 will hit store shelves in September at $999 USD for the D80 body only and $1299 USD for D80 + 18-135mm lens.
