    Let me know what you think. I am loving the D80, still learning all the functions.

    Go outside on a bright sunny day and take tons of pictures of everything at -.7 -.3 and 0.

    I have a d40 and it has some oddities when it comes to the metering. I shoot in raw so it's not an issue, but its all over the place at times. I've heard the d80 has some of the same peculiarities. First tip for finding where you might be blowing highlights, is hit up on the control pad when you're in review mode, until you find the highlights indicator. Keep that on while you're outside and it'll show you where it's getting close to blowing out (just cause it's flashing doesn't mean it's actually blown out).

    Yeah probably is :hs: The meter said i was good though. I did more than a few shots using different fstops seeing what the difference was.

    On a portrait shot like that it would have looked better to go with a lower f stop. Since the focus was close it was going to blur the background anyway so the reason people are criticizing is that a lower f stop and higher shutter speed would have probably had a nicer fuzziness to the background (bokeh) while minimizing blur.

    were you using a flash? if so, the default shutter sync is 1/60th.
