Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

1 Answer

LCD on - view image prior to taking photo

Hi,

camera is a Nikon D80
My custom settings for Image review in set to ON. I can view all my photos taken which is perfect.

However I cannot view the image I am about to take - as in prior to actually taking the photo.

I would like this feature turn on so I can look at the image of what I am about to take via the lcd screen and NOT the view finder.

thanks for any help you can provide

The feature you are referring to is called "Live View mode".

This is NOT available on the Nikon D80, and was only introduced on the D90, which is available now.

Live View mode allows you to use the LCD screen as your view finder instead of using the eyepiece, but unfortunately, this feature is not available in your model.

Have a d8o take a picture does not show on back screen


If you wish to manually view all the photos you've taken, press the play button, it is located near the screen on the back with a triangle logo.

If you wish to automatically view photos after they've been taken, press the menu button, go to the sub menu with the pencil icon, and turn "Image review" to on.

If you wish to view the images on the back screen as you take them, this is not possible with the D80. You have to use the viewfinder.

Lcd display not working on nikon d40. When we turn on the camera, and take off the lens cap, the lcd display is black. we can use the viewfinder to take a photo. We can view the image after taking the...


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.

Text is showing up when i review my picture


After you take a picture and while you are viewing the image press the UP or DOWN on the directional button... you will see that you can scroll thru several screens of image info. These are very helpful when doing pro shots and making sure the settings you have are proper for the effect you want. Scroll to the screen with just the date and time stamp at the bottom. If any of the other screens pop up in the future you know that you can just scroll thru again with the up or down arrows.

This camera has soooo much info that it's hard to remember everything. I had a D50 before this one and I'm still learning...even after a year of ownership.

Can't turn off/disable optimize image screen- nikon d80


Ok, all you need to do is:

1.Hold the camera normally like you would take a picture.

2.Turn it on and review a picture.

3. While looking at a picture, take your index (pointer) finger and rotate the front "wheel" right under the shutter release button. This switches the viewing mode, and should solve your problem.

Monitor does not show images in focus


Impossible. The D80 is an SLR which means there is a real shutter curtain blocking the imaging array, essentially 'blindfolding' the array.It cannot see the image until the shutter is opened. Nikon just introduced a new SLR that can do live view mode, if you want to spend a couple of grand.

Sounds like your 'preview' feature has been turned off in your camera settings. With the camera turned 'on,' press: "Menu," then press the joystick button until you reach the pencil, which is your, "Custom Setting Menu." Then press down on your joystick to reach, "Image Review." Now press the joystick to the right to select, "Image Review," and press up on the joystick to get to, "Image Review On," and then press, "OK." If that doesn't do it, please let us know.
