the d80 is known to over expose because of it defective metering system. All you have to do is set the +/- button to -0.7 and it should fix the problem. (you only have to do this once unless you reset it).
Hold down the +/- button on the top and turn the rear dial two clicks to the right to get this setting. I had to do it with mine. Works fine now.

well, ive started to notice the last few picutres ive been taking are over exposed. checking out the cam i see that when i have it on aperture priority and i am outside(high shutter speed) the shutter speed on the top display doesnt match the one that the cam is actually doing (whats displayed when you look through the lens). i went outside and it said 1000 on the top display but when i look through the lens it displays 1/80 and takes the shot at 1/80. but when i am in low light they seem to match. i looked through all the menus and everything is fine. any ideas?
