    Can anyone tell me if I can use an 8GB SDHC card in a Nikon D80

    the manual says 4GB.

    I have emailed Nikon but they must be very busy at the moment as they
    haven't replied yet! Only been 4 days inc. The weekend.

    Sorry everyone - can I withdraw the question. I don't want people
    wasting their time on it.

    I looked in the forums at dpreview and got the answer there.

    I have found a nice one also
    SanDisk 8GB SDHC ULTRA II Card + MicroMate Reader for Nikon D80

    I really should do my homework before asking here.

    Sorry again

    Well I learned something: I thought all the Nikon DSLR's used CF.

    nikon d40/d40x/d50/d80 use sd. the rest use cf.

  5. Unfortunately Nikon is following the herd and switched to SD for compacts
    and lower end dSLR.

    disagree. sd is far more robust than cf (impossible to get bent pins
    and it's sealed). hopefully they migrate all cameras to it.

    And it has a write-protect tab. Consider taking lots of cards and no other
    storage on a trip. Use a card, write protect it, grab another card. No
    risk of wiping a used card :)
