Question about Nikon Coolpix 8800 Digital Camera
I have been taking pictures with this camera for over one year and I love it. Last trip I took pictures and then one day, I couldn't use the visor or electronic viewfinder. It just didn't show the image I wanted to shoot. Therefore all my other pictures after that had to be taken through the LCD visor. Can you help? Mariflor Blaser

This appears to be a well known CCD problem, which Nikon acknowledges only for the COOLPIX 3100, 5700 and SQ models. Nikon denies the CCD problems on the 5400 are related, even though a Google search for this problem returns numerous results which claim the same defective Sony CCD sensor was used in the 5400 as was used in the 3100, 5700, and SQ models.

NatD, The D50 and indeed most SLR digital cameras [ I have a D40 ] does not allow you to take pictures using the LCD display ... this is by design, you are meant to use the viewfinder and the image you see through it is straight through the lens via a mirror block [ called a reflex pentamirror or prism ]. When the mirror is down such that you can see the image in the viewfinder it is obscuring the sensor [ the bit that takes the picture ] and when you take a shot the mirror lifts and the picture is recorded. Its this reason that DSLR's dont use the LCD to shoot, however there are a few now available that do let you do this, such as olympus, new panasonic one and higher end Nikon and Canon cameras. Hope this explains it without getting too detailed!

The D40 works the same way SLRs have worked for the past half century. Only recently have dSLRs acquired a "Live-View" capability, where you see the image on the LCD monitor instead of through the viewfinder.
I realize this probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

hi your camera has system error, usually the lens unit doesn't reset after taking picture. it cause error message. you should contact to nikon service center and ask them repair cost. usually they will tell on the phone. thanks and best regard!
