- Organized to help you learn. I've reorganized how I present material, with distinct sections for what you need to know before using the camera (background and setup), while using the camera (shooting features), and after using the camera (what to do with your images, including how to use Nikon's software). Want a more concise carry-it-with-you guide? Just print the middle section and have it bound to take with you.
complete instruction manual and an introduction to relevant
digital issues in one book. Thom Hogan's Complete Guide
to the Nikon D80 manages to not only fully describe every
feature of the D80 in clear, easy-to-understand language, but
gives you rich, technical background for many of the critical
issues that confront digital camera users. First time DSLR users will get information about how DSLRs work. DSLR veterans will get insights into how to set their D80 for the best results.
- Nikon flash and autofocus modes explained in plain English! Wonder how the new I-TTL flash works? Can't figure out Dynamic autofocus, Release Priority, Focus Priority, the new AF-A autofocus mode, and a host of other terms used to describe features of the focusing system? Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon D80 explains these terms and accompanying techniques in the same simple, no-nonsense language that made his Nikon Field Guide a best seller. Includes information on how to use the D80's Commander mode wireless flash option.
useful Photoshop Actions and Depth of Field spreadsheet. On
the disc is Thom's Excel spreadsheet, which allows you to calculate
depth of field and hyperfocal distance for any Nikon lens used
with the D80 (note that depth of field on a digital body like
the D80 is not the same as it is for 35mm film). But
that's not all! You'll also get Excel workbooks for macro and
flash (know how to calculate the GN of multiple flashes or the
effective GN when bouncing? You will if buy this book!).
- Includes an introduction to Capture NX. Capture NX is Nikon's raw file converter for the D80 (you can get a free trial download from Nikon), but it's idiosyncratic interface tends to keep people from using it. That's a shame, because it's a powerful tool that's actually very easy to use once you learn how.
- Note: This eBook covers the MB-D80 and other currently available D80 options and accessories.

Best $30 I've spent in a long time. --George Paleo
Having purchased your D70 Guide I figured the D80 version would probably be just a rehash of a lot of the same material. Gotta say that it has a LOT of new stuff and, go figure, I'm learning a lot again. --Bob Lancelot
