RGB Histogram will not turn off.

We were taking pictures of The Trail of Lights at night. Somehow we must have pressed something that caused the Rgb Histogram screen to come on and we cannot get it to turn off.

It's not hard... I had the same problem, but I found this solution on the internet and it worked.
First turn on the camera and press the play button.
You are now viewing your picture with the histogram.
Use the same joystick looking kind of button that you use to scroll left and right through the pictures, but instead of going left and right, go UP OR DOWN. That scrolls through the different display settings.

Hope that helps!

Be aware, jpg is an universal format, for pictures. It is not so all pictures have the same format and information. Your Polaroid can cope with a certain format of pictures. That is with the correct amount of pixels and he correct RGB settings, as your Polaroid camera produces.
It is not a computer. When you connect a printer to a computer, with the print program, the program can transform any picture size to any print size and also can work with RGB and sRGB, or even more challenges. I'm not even sure the Polaroid will accept pictures in the same format, if to a certain code is in the jpg.

I have a Nikon D80 camera. I somehow, unintentionally turned on the preview screen that shows all of the info. I don't want any print on my screen, no highlight, no RGB, nothing but picture.


If you were seeing a preview on the LCD monitor on the back of the camera, then there was something seriously wrong with the camera. Nikon did not introduce the LiveView feature until later models.
If you're asking about review instead of preview and seeing graphs or lots of data, press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through different views of your pictures until you get to one you like.

Can I remove histogram which apears on screen when taking a photo? It is distracting!


While the histogram can be distracting, it can be very useful to ensure that your image is well composed and the lighting is good.

To remove the histogram, put the camera in video or picture taking mode, press the up arrow (disp) key to cycle through three different display types: Histogram + indicators on (where you are now), nothing but the picture (where you want to be) and picture with indicators. Indicators include battery charge state, image quality, etc. Not needed while taking pictures, but nice to be able to take a look.

See page 33 of the manual for your camera.

Hightlight message on Nikon D80


Highlight is just the info mode, there are several info modes including Basic file info, Shooting Info and RGB histogram, just press the round controller in the up or down direction to change between them in playback mode. Highlight will flash black anywhere there is pure white in an image.
Try resetting the camera by pressing the 2 buttons with green dots (on top of the camera near the shutter release) holding them for a few seconds.

Deh778 question about Rgb histogram not turning off.


If you haven't solved the histogram issue by pressing the multi selector up or down or rotating the sub-command dial to choose photo information display then OK.  The D80 is a very reliable "prosumer" camera meaning it's more than a consumer model offering better quality and features commonly found on professional camera models, if you are a budding photographer and desire more control over the images you take and the options to take creative images working with the amount of light, the shutter speed and may other aspects the pros do then it's worth it, if those features are not important then having all the control might be a problem if that isn't what you are after.  Early digital cameras were pretty poor quality and could never compare to film cameras, even the early model D70 had some issues with battery life.  Take the time to learn about this camera and you will be very happy.  I know several professional photographers who use the D80 and find Nikon stands behind the camera.  If you have any other specific problems or issues let me know, I'd be glad to go over them.

Nikon D40X What is the best setting for night pictures at a youth football game (under lights) My pictures are not coming out focused and very dark


It will take a little experimentation on your part, but you are likely to get the best results by turning off most of the automatic features on the D40x.

First, for exposure, a lighted field tends to have pretty even lighting across it. You still need a decently high shutter speed to capture football action, so you will need a high ISO setting.Turn your D40x mode dial to "M" for manual (see p.43 of your manual). Set your ISO to 1600 (see p.37 in the manual).

Consulting my 1973 Kodak Master Photoguide, I'd suggest using an initial starting point for your exposures to be a shutter speed of 1/400s ("400" on the LCD) and and aperture of f/4 on your lens (p.43). If your lens is slower than that, equivalent starting points would be 1/200s at f/5.6 and 1/160s at f/6.3. For best results, though, you will want to use a faster lens for night sports.

Take a picture of a subject on the field, then display it via playback. Click the multi-selector up or down until you see the histogram display. While most of the bars in the histogram may be toward the dark end of the scale, there should be some in the mid-tone region representing your subject. If everything is toward the dark end, you will need to open your aperture or reduce your shutter speed. If there are bars piling up at the extreme right or light end of the histogram, you can increase your shutter speed. Continue this process until you find the exposure setting that gives you a clear-looking picture on playback with a good histogram. You should be able to use this setting for the rest of the evening. It pays to check occasionally, though, as sometimes lights either increase in brightness with time, or some lights may go out.

Concerning poor focus: if you are using a telephoto lens under low light, the camera autofocus mechanism can either take a long time to focus, or may fail to focus. This is another case where you may get better results going manual. If you are using an AF-S lens, there should be a switch on the lens marked "A <-> M". Switch it to the "M" position and you will now focus the lens manually. You will turn the focus ring until your subject appears its sharpest in the viewfinder. If you can predict where the action will be happening, you can pre-focus on the spot and wait for the play to unfold and take the picture when the players get there. Choosing moments when players naturally have minimal movement in the midst of action is something all sports photographers learn, so as to make the most of the small action-stopping ability of shutter speeds in low light situations, such as when the quarterback stops to throw a pass, or catching a receiver at the topmost height of a jump.

Remember after the game to restore your usual settings to the camera: a more moderate ISO setting, selecting the "P" or an automatic mode on the dial, and turn the switch on your lens back to "A" for automatic focusing.
