Sadly, no, the D80 is not my camera.  It belongs to my husband who was just as lost as I was with the demise of my D70 last month.  My camera is in the shop, hopefully being repaired, but in the mean time Dickidoo couldn't bring himself to use a smaller point and shoot camera so he made an investment.

Unfortunately he doesn't share very well. I have only been able to take the camera out twice so far.  I can see we will have to come up with a custody agreement like we had with the D70.  Grrrr!

A little about this bright eyed grasshopper.  I couldn't have asked for a better subject as I fiddled with the controls of the new camera.  He sat quite patiently while I clicked and adjusted and clicked again.  I think I may have bored him half to death, but the pictures came out so clear.

I miss my camera and really hope it can be fixed, but man, that D80 is sweet!

Congrats on the new camera...hope you get to use it more than once.  I'm about sold on the Nikon line as my next step as I move into the realm of the DSLR.  Looking to get the D200 by the end of the year.  Already have the lenses picked out.  Only thing left to do is find the money to make it happen.

Wow!  That camera did a great job.  Was your camera able to be fixed?  I need to put my digital camera in the shop.  The battery compartment door came off when it got dropped accidentally.  ::sigh::  I am having to use rubberbands and scotch tape to hold it together, lol.  Sorry I have been away so long.  Have been ill, but am beginning to feel better now, praise God!~
