Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon D40x camera

When viewing pics taken from window, display has an x-ray look to a portion of the picture that is flashing on and off. For example, I took a picture of my dog in the yard, only his tail and portion of leg is flashing from normal color to black and grey in the picture viewer. The rest of the pic is fine...including background. Picture prints turn out fine. I can't figure out how to make this go away. I changed battery and recharged existing battery...which makes me think it must be a setting. Not sure if I modified a setting to cause this or what it is from. Any suggestions?

    I have exactly the same problem, Bright regions in the image turn black as if the region has saturated. Hoping someone has a "simple" solution.

    I'm having the same problem. Parts of the pictures in view flip from white/light to dark (like an xray). For instance, a picture with light from a window behind the subject keeps going from negative to positive (light to dark).

This setting is just showing you what part of your image that will be blown. Just use your arrow button to scroll thru other settings till your screen goes back to normal.

Picture does not appear on the monitor, I must look through the view finder to see what I,m pointing at to photograph


The D40x operates as SLRs have operated for half a century, offering you an optical viewfinder with which to frame and compose your picture. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing.

Nikon introduced the live view feature, which allows you to hold your camera so it wobbles at arms' length, with the D3 and D300, released half a year after the D40x.

While almost all current DSLRs have this capability, it was not so common five years ago when the D40x was introduced.

Intermittent blanking on pictures displayed


There's nothing wrong. The blinking areas are blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that the camera thinks are overexposed.
While viewing the picture, press cursor-up/down to cycle through the different views of your picture.

How to overlay picture in D40x camera


Overlaying pictures, like almost all photo manipulations, is better done on a computer using "real" software rather than on a camera. You get much more control on a computer. However, the D40 does have a wide repertoire of photo manipulation capabilities.

In order to overlay images, you must be shooting in RAW (or RAW+JPEG). Select Image Overlay from the Retouch menu. A preview dialog will be displayed with Image 1 highlighted. Press OK to get a photo selection dialog. Use left/right to highlight the first picture in the overlay. (You can press and hold the Zoom button to see the selected photo fullscreen.) Press OK to select the image. Optimize exposure for the image by pressing up/down. Press left/right to highlight Image 2. Select the second image the same way. Press left/right to highlight the Preview column. Overlay will show you the result, allowing you to go back and change things if you wish. Save will save the overlaid photo.

The shadow in the lower portion of your camera is probably caused by the lens hood. The solution is simple: remove the lens hood whenever you're using the built-in flash.

I WANT THE TIME AND DATE DISPLAYED ON EACH PHOTO


If you simply want to see the date and time on the screen, press up/down while reviewing your pictures until you get the view you want.

If you want the date and time printed on the pictures, that needs to be done in whatever program you use to print. For example, Nikon ViewNX has a "Print Photo Information" check box in its Print dialog.

The camera is not going to damage your pictures by imprinting date and time on any portion of the image. It will record that information (and a lot more), but its priority is on getting the image data.

Cannot take pictures thru lcd screen on d40x DSLR


The D40x is not capable of Liveview - i.e. looking at the LCD to take a picture. You are mistaken.
If you want Liveview, you need to buy the D3 or D300 cameras. The D40x is an entry-level camera.

D4ox lcd not showing 'live view'


Are you certain you used to have Live View on the D40x? Then something was wrong, as Nikon never put it in.

The D40x does not have Live View.

Sadly the D40X does not have a live view function. You can only view shots you have already taken or use the display to make adjustments to the settings.

Currently the only Olympus digital SLRs have live view.
