    2 things, first, you have posted in the wrong forum. Second, read the manual first.

    sure, come i teach you.


    first, open the box your camera came in.

    Look inside.

    Do you see a white booklet with words on it?

    If no, go to www.nikon.com and download this thing called a manual. Its spelt M-A-N-U-A-L. not M-A-N-U-R-E.

    If yes, pick it up

    READ IT.

    If you need more help after, there's a sticky in the newbies forum with a guide.

    Hi hiboost

    Welcome to CS

    D80 is a great camera, should not be too difficult to figure out how to work it after abit of reading. I took at least a week to familarise with it as well ( my first DSLR too ) .

    You can drop me a pm if there are still things u r unsure of after running thru the manual

    most important step is to charge the battery, so that you can bring it out and play

    don't shoot blindly, think about what you are doing

    "if i change this setting, what happens?
    why does it happens so?"

    after a while you will become an expert already

    Hello...welcome.

    Maybe you can tell us what do you know about Aperture, Shutter Spped & ISO first. Do read up a bit on these topics first if you really have no idea of these terms.

    2nd most important step is: Don't bring the D80 body alone. Must remember to mount a lens!
    3rd most important step: remove lens cap before taking photo
