- Nikon P80 digital camera
- Fully charged camera battery
- Memory card of choice
- Ensure your camera's battery is fully charged. Your Nikon P80 comes with a rechargeable Li-ion battery and charger. You should allow at least four hours for camera to charge before use. The Li-ion battery is the only brand battery you should use with the Nikon P80 to avoid damage to both the camera and battery.
- Insert memory card into the camera. The memory chip is vital for storage of your pictures and video clips. To put the memory card into the Nikon P80, locate the memory card slot on the bottom of the camera and gently insert the card. Do not force card to go into the slot. Doing so could cause damage to the card and the camera.
Turn on the camera. You need to locate the “On/Off” button, which can be found on the upmost top part of the camera. Once it has been located, push it so the camera turns on. You will be asked to set the date and time. You may do this now or if you are too excited, do it at a more convenient time.
- Choose your preference of how you will take your picture. Will it be auto focus (AF), action shots or nature setting? Once you have made your selection, point your Nikon P80 at an object of your choice and push the shutter button located on the top of your camera to capture the picture. Congratulations! You have just taken a picture with your Nikon P80!
