    I am using a Nikon D60. I want to see the shot on the camera's monitor before I take the picture. All I see is shutter speed and such. How can I change it to show the view of the scene?

Hi, the monitor or lcd can not be used for the task with this camera. You must use the viewfinder to frame the photograph. (note that the eye sensor detects the eye looking through the viewfinder and the monitor will turn off ). Photographs cannot be framed using the monitor.

Here is a quick start quide for you

follow the steps on the quick start guide to learn the proper steps on how to take a good picture.
if your looking at the lcd your hands will shake more and the picture wont come out as good, the cheap cameras will have that function.

Hi,

Assuming your monitor is properly calibrated, display a picture on the monitor and the same picture on the D60. Adjust the D60 display brightness until it's about as bright as the picture on your monitor. That's the best you can do as far as making them match. You might also try relying more on the image review histogram than the actual look of photo on the D60's display.

All the more .. this website might be of some more help :

Removing information on screen


You can get rid of the information screen by pressing the [i] button at the bottom left. However you'll still have to use the viewfinder to take your photos. Nikon didn't allow the LCD to be used for LiveView until they introduced the D3 and D300 a year after the D60.

After taking a picture with my D60 the shot is very slow to come up on the screen.Using smaller files speeds it up a little but it is still slower than my freinds D40x


Unfortunately this isn't anything that can be necessarily fixed per se.

I'd suggest looking at Nikon's website and finding any applicable firmware upgrades. However, upon checking Nikon's website there are no available firmware upgrades currently.

Beyond that, I also recommend formatting your memory card (after transferring your photos to your computer) and possibly looking into purchasing a faster memory card. Memory cards have different write/read speeds which can affect the rate at which your pictures come up onscreen in the camera.

Help! I have a nikon D60 and all of a sudden I can't see the picture on the sreen before I click to take the photo. Is the battery low or did I hit something I shouldn't have? Thanks


If you could see the picture on the screen before taking it, there was something seriously wrong with your D60, which apparently now seems to have fixed itself. The D60 doesn't have the LiveView feature which allows you to use the screen instead of the viewfinder to compose your picture.

Why my nikon d60 wont display any image when i take photos with it


The D60 operates as SLRs have operated for half a century, showing the image through an optical viewfinder. Only more recent dSLRs have the LiveView capability allowing you to use the LCD monitor for this. Currently the D5000 is the lowest-priced Nikon with this capability.

Just bought Nikon D60. No matter what mode I use


looks like a viewfinder has an issue. If you have recently bought the thing just return it and get a new one. If not possible to replace , i recommend visiting Nikon authorised service center.
Could be something in the path of pentaprism.

Nikon D60 use of Display to take pictures rather than view finder


The Nikon D60 does not have "live view" capability, so you'll need to use the viewfinder to frame you shots. If you need "live view" capability, consider purchasing the D80 or D90 instead with offer the feature...
