I got a D80 two weeks ago. First foray into dSLRs. Have a P&S Fuji E550 which began my transition to digital. Have been shooting and loving my Nikon F-801s (international version of the N8008s) for years. -- issue 1: freaky white balance errors -- On my D80, shooting indoors with pop-up flash, I intermittently see a photo with horrendous white balance. The photo has undergone major blue shift. Looks like I'm shooting a Dentyne Ice commercial. Next shot's color balance is fine. Happens once every 10 to thirty photos. Haven't shot enough outdoors to see if it appears there as well. Mostly I've been taking photos of newborns & toddlers. I'm usually shooting in AUTO or PORTRAIT mode, and always with the Nikon 24-120 D (non VR, non AF-S) lens and a UV/Haze filter (Hoya SMC). -- issue 2: stalls on image transfers to PC -- Also, I notice when sucking photos down from the D80 into Photoshop Elements 4.0, there is often a long pause at least once during the download. No green light blinking, just a hesitation of, say 15 seconds mid download. Have not yet tried taking the SanDisk Extreme II and plugging it in directly via USB (it is one of the fold in half and it's a USB card models). It is a 3.0 GHz P4 with 2GB RAM; it shouldn't be the culprit. I have the sensation that Windows itself is hung/frozen for the duration. Misbehaving USB port? Misbehaving SanDisk? Misbehaving driver? -- My Fuji E550 never experienced download hiccups to the same app on the same computer, and it never had these odd outbursts of horrible white balance. Just trying to see if I have a bad sample. Anybody seen this on the D200? D70? Any other tests I should run before my 30 days are up to swap for a new unit? I've done all-black and all-white sensor tests for dead pixels and LCD issues. So far so good.
