Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens
When I look through my new-ish D80 Nikon everything is quite dark, kind of gray diffused, with area focus lines and squares showing. If I take a picture, it is way too bright. I have tried both my lenses...same trouble. There is a red warning light just before the picture is taken. What have I done? Is it broken? Is there a simple solution?
What you see through the viewfinder is not exactly what you get in your picture. It is possible that your settings are just off in the camera. To make sure that this is the problem, set your settings to Auto and try again.
The red light before the picture is taken is a setting you can turn on to indicate that you have focused correctly. You can turn this off in the menu if this bothers you.
Lastly, I do not think your camera is broken. You just need to read your manual to make sure your settings are correct when you take a picture. Hope this helps.
