Christmas Countdown Day 17 Nikon D80 Digital SLR

If you are like me, when you think of consumer digital SLR’s, you probably first think of the Canon Digital Rebel XTi. But over at CNET they just named the Nikon D80 as the best digital SLR for 2007.

Even though it was released in 2006, there was no new competition this year to knock the D80 from the top spot. The Nikon D80 Nikon packs 10 megapixels and gives the user excellent color rendition, noise levels, as well as, extensive features that allow for user customization, and lightening fast performance.

The only thing against the Nikon D80 in my opinion is the price, as it is a couple of hundred dollars more than the canon XTi. But then again, if you are serious about making the move up to digital SLR, then what’s a couple of hundred dollars.
