    Hi Jon,

    From what I have read about this camera, the only real difference is that the
    "QD" model imprints the date on your photo.

    It's a great looking camera, and I have been thinking of buying one myself.

    May You Never Run Out Of Subjects Or Film :)

    Barry.

    As far as I am aware, the F80s has never been a Nikon USA official
    import and has therefore never been sold with the N prefix. If this
    has recently changed, can someone please supply a URL showing the F80s
    with the N prefix?

    The QD means it has a date feature that can be turned on or off. I just got
    my N80QD from B & H. It arrived Thursday evening. Very
    fun exploring all the options. Love the grid lines in the screen. (Also an
    option, I opted to turn it on)

    There is no N80s -- Nikon USA never imported it. And I don't think
    you're quite right about the F80s, either -- it imprints the exposure
    and shutter speed *outside* the negative frame, which makes the
    feature genuinely useful.

    I happened to be in Tokyo about when Nikon released the F80s. Before
    going there, I asked Nikon USA whether, if I bought an F80s on that
    trip and something went wrong with it, they would fix it.

    Their answer was interesting: ``If you buy a Nikon product in person
    through official channels anywhere in the world, it is not a
    gray-market product and we wil repair it under warranty, even if we
    have to special-order parts from Japan to do so.''

    Unfortunately, the release date turned out to be about a week after my
    visit.
