1. Options shown are only available when SU-800 is used to control other
fash units.
2. CPU lens required.
3. Standard i-TTL for Digital SLR is used with spot metering or when se-
lected with Speedlight. Otherwise i-TTL Balanced Fill-Flash for Digital
SLR is used.
4. Use Speedlight controls to select fash mode. Non-TTL auto is selected
automatically when a non-CPU lens is attached.
5. Auto aperture is selected automatically if CPU lens is attached. Non-TTL
auto is selected automatically if non-CPU lens is attached.
6. Use Speedlight controls to select fash mode.

1. Autofocus is available only with AF-Micro lenses (60 mm, 105 mm, or
70–180 mm).
2. When mounted on D80, fash mode is automatically set to TTL and shut-
ter release is disabled. Set Speedlight to A (non-TTL auto) mode.
121 Technical Notes / Optional Accessories
Notes on Optional Speedlights
Refer to the Speedlight manual for detailed instructions. If the Speedlight supports the Creative Light-
ing System, refer to the section on CLS-compatible digital SLR cameras. The D80 is not included in the
“digital SLR” category in the SB-80DX, SB-28DX, and SB-50DX manuals.
If an optional Speedlight is attached with the camera in a Digital Vari-Program mode, the flash will fire
whenever a photograph is taken. The following flash modes are available:
• P, , , , , , and modes: Fill flash and red-eye reduction. Fill flash is automatically selected
if the flash mode is set to off or auto when an optional Speedlight is attached. Auto with red-eye
reduction becomes red-eye reduction.
• mode: Auto slow sync becomes slow sync, auto slow sync with red-eye reduction becomes slow
sync with red-eye reduction, and off becomes slow sync.
If AUTO is selected for ISO sensitivity in Digital Vari-Program modes or On is selected for Custom Set-
ting 7 (ISO Auto) in P, S, A, or M mode, ISO sensitivity will be adjusted for optimal flash output when
an optional SB-800 or SB-600 Speedlight is attached. This may result in foreground subjects being un-
derexposed in photographs taken with the flash at slow shutter speeds, in daylight, or against a bright
background. Choose a flash mode other than slow sync or choose a larger aperture.
If Auto FP High Speed Sync is used, the shutter will synchronize with an external flash at speeds of ½00 s
or slower.
i-TTL flash control can be used at ISO sensitivities between 100 and 1600. Higher values may not
produce the desired results at some ranges or apertures. If the flash-ready indicator blinks for about
three seconds after a photograph is taken, the flash has fired at full power and the photograph may
be underexposed.
The optional SB-800 and SB-600 Speedlights and SU-800 wireless Speedlight commander provide ac-
tive AF assist illumination for the following focus areas:
• 24–34 mm AF lens • 35–105 mm AF lens
The SB-800 and SB-600 also provide red-eye reduction. With other Speedlights, the camera AF assist
illuminator is used for AF-assist illumination and red-eye reduction.
In the following modes, the maximum aperture (minimum f/-number) selectable by the camera is
limited according to ISO sensitivity ( 43):
Maximum aperture at ISO sensitivity of
Mode 100 125 160 200 250 320 400 500 640 800 1000 1250 1600
P, , , , , , 4 4.2 4.5 4.8 5 5.3 5.6 6 6.3 6.7 7.1 7.6 8
5.6 6 6.3 6.7 7.1 7.6 8 8.5 9 9.5 10 11 11
For each one-step increase in sensitivity (e.g., from 200 to 400), aperture is stopped down by half an f/-
stop. If the maximum aperture of the lens is smaller than given above, the maximum value for aperture
will be the maximum aperture of the lens.
When an SC-series 17, 28, or 29 sync cable is used for off-camera flash photography, correct exposure
may not be achieved in i-TTL mode. We recommend that you choose spot metering to select standard
i-TTL flash control. Take a test shot and view the results in the monitor.
In i-TTL mode, use the flash panel or bounce adapter provided with the Speedlight. Do not use other
panels such as diffusion panels, as this may produce incorrect exposure. Auto power zoom is available
only with SB-800 and SB-600 Speedlights.

129 Technical Notes / Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
If the camera fails to function as expected, check the list of common problems below before
consulting your retailer or Nikon representative. Refer to the page numbers in the right-
most column for more information.
Problem Solution
Camera takes time to turn on. Delete files or folders.
65, 74,
105
Viewfinder is out of focus.
Adjust viewfinder focus or use optional diopter adjust-
ment lenses.
17, 122
Viewfinder is dark. Insert a fully-charged battery. 12
Displays turn off without warning.
Choose longer delays for Custom Setting 27 (Monitor
off) or 28 (Auto meter off).
98, 99
Unusual characters displayed in con-
trol panel.
See “ A Note on Electronically-Controlled Cameras,” be-
low.

Displays in control panel or view-
finder are unresponsive and dim.
The response times and brightness of these displays
varies with temperature.

Fine lines are visible around active
focus area or display turns red when
focus area is highlighted.
These phenomena are normal for this type of viewfind-
er and do not indicate a malfunction.

Menu item is not displayed. Select Full for CSM / setup menu. 101
Menu item can not be selected.
Rotate mode dial to another setting or insert memory
card. Note that Battery info option is only available
when camera is powered by EN-EL3e battery.
107
Image size can not be changed. Image quality set to NEF (RAW). 34
Metering can not be changed.
Digital Vari-Program mode selected or autoexposure
lock in effect.
24, 94
Exposure compensation not avail-
able.
Choose mode P, S, or A. 45
Can not measure white balance. Subject is too dark or too bright. 60
Image can not be selected as source
for preset white balance.
Image was not created with D80. 82
White balance bracketing unavail-
able.
• NEF (RAW) or NEF + JPEG option selected for image
quality.
• (Choose color temp.) selected for white balance.
• Multiple exposure in progress.
34, 59,
84
A Note on Electronically-Controlled Cameras
In extremely rare instances, unusual characters may appear in the control
panel and the camera may stop functioning. In most cases, this phenom-
enon is caused by a strong external static charge. Turn the camera off, re-
move and replace the battery (note that the battery may be hot) or discon-
nect and reconnect the AC adapter, and turn the camera on again. If the
problem persists, turn the camera off and press the reset switch (see right;
note that this resets the clock). In the event of continued malfunction, con-
tact your retailer or a Nikon-authorized service representative.
