About 7 years ago my niece wanted a of her own. They asked for my opinion & I didn't want them paying for a brand new low-end (like a D3100) thinking my niece might lose interest & ditch the hobby. So I gave her my then already 5-year old , & said "if you don't want it anymore, don't trash it, give it back to me". I bought myself a . Eventually her father got her a simple mirrorless camera. This week I thought I'd keep a & got my D80 back.

She'd stopped using it a few years now, but kept it in good condition. πŸ‘Œ She lost the grey & though. πŸ™„ I didn't want to buy another (it's different from the ). Luckily my old MB-D80 Multi-power Battery Pack has an AA 6-pc battery holder, so I went & got some more batteries and... my is alive!! πŸ˜€

Only problem is I can't unscrew the . Apparently somebody didn't put it back on perfectly & now it's stuck... and dirty inside. 😣

@evelynyap just use some Gaffer tape to grab the filter. You can also make a double sided piece, and stick it to a table/flat surface if the filter is on straight, but just stuck.

@chip
The filter wasn't put on straight. It's not perfectly flat on the lens. πŸ™

@evelynyap it helps the pliers stick, let's you use less pressure,and not mar everything. gaffer tape leaves no residue.
