1. Rubber hatches. Every time I close the rubber USB cover I expect it to be the last time I close it.
Very true. I've been looking for an SD card reader for exactly this reason. It's frustrating when you have to spend money on things like this when you really don't want to, rather than using it towards more important things like lenses/other gear.
3. That IR remote again. Why on earth make it so small and not allow for it to be mounted on a lanyard. I haven't lost mine yet but it's on the cards, mark my words.
It's funny you should mention this. I was talking to a friend who's recently just bought a D80 and he said that he's already lost his IR remote. (ok, that's not funny...)
4. The supplied neckstrap. Absolute rubbish. It could double as one of those exfoliators ladies use in the bathroom.
I disagree! You have no idea how many times I've been walking down the street with my camera when a worried and flustered builder has walked up to me in a panic asking if I happen to have any spare sand paper on me. The relief on his face when I was able to loan him my nikon...
As a result, there's now a very swanky, nikon-strap kitted out builders yard just down the road. As luck would have it, these straps never wear out....EVER! [/sarcasm]
- The D80 is dumb for switching multipoint AF off in P-, S-, A-, M-mode (or am I dumb for not finding the button to swithc it on again? Help!)
Do you mean you want the same AF settings that the camera selects as default when you're in full auto mode? If so, take a look at page 30 in the manual. I haven't tried it myself but it looks like you can manually set the AF-area mode to "Auto-area AF"
