Nikon D80 Prints

I just pruchased a Nikon D80. The images appear correct on the camera and on the computer screen but prints are coming out with a blue tint. I have the latest firmware update and no other problems with the camera. Printer is a an HP C7180 and produces good prints using point and shoot cameras. I've used and SLR camera before but this is my first digital SLR. I keep thinking I'm missing a setting somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Nikon D80 Prints

Have you had the picture printed at a local photo lab. Try that and see if it's your computer/printer matching.

You may have to see if the Camera is set for Adobe RGB (or RGB) and your computer/printer is set for Adobe RGB or sRGB. These need to match. There's a new world with color matching that the point and shoot don't do.

Hope this helps. I could regurgitate all about Color Matching, but why when someone else has it all written out.

Washed out colour on d 5100 images

If the colors are washed out on the LCD screen but appear OK on your computer, the problem is likely with the LCD itself.

If the color is washed out in both the LCD screen and on your computer, you can try adjusting menu settings to intensify the color on the images. Also, you might want to reset the camera to its default settings. I can do that on my D-90 by simultaneously holding down the "AF" and "+/-" buttons on the top right hand side of the camera. Holding down those buttons for about ten seconds will restore the default settings.

If these steps don't help, return the camera to the seller for a replacement.

I just got my new Nikon D80 but cannot get the LCD screen to light up. Where do I find the setting or the LCD screen to have it on while shooting pictures?

The D80 does not use the LCD screen to take images. The screen is only used to review images and use the menu system to check or change camera settings. When shooting, you need to use the viewfinder above the screen.

The r09, r11 or r17 just tells you how many pictures you can shoot before the internal memory buffer is full. It's not an error message, and I don't think there's any way to turn it off.

In the mountains, are you subjecting the camera to wide swings of temperature or humidity? These could cause your symptoms.

LCD on - view image prior to taking photo

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.

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.
