Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

1 Answer

D40X LCD Hi Dear Because of the removal of the control panel LCD the D40X uses the main LCD monitor for camera information display and the change of settings. By default this display is not shown, instead you press the 'info' button to show or hide it, you can optionally have the display on all the time. My question is: What i have to do for have the LCD always on. Thank you Quim

Picture does not appear on the monitor, I must look through the view finder to see what I,m pointing at to photograph

The D40x operates as SLRs have operated for half a century, offering you an optical viewfinder with which to frame and compose your picture. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing.

Nikon introduced the live view feature, which allows you to hold your camera so it wobbles at arms' length, with the D3 and D300, released half a year after the D40x.

While almost all current DSLRs have this capability, it was not so common five years ago when the D40x was introduced.

Can I use the LCD monitor (rather than the viewfinder) when taking pictures ? If so, how do I set the camera to do this?

No, you can't. Nikon didn't introduce the "LiveView" capability in their dSLRs until the D3 and D300. The older D40x requires you to use the viewfinder.

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 I have a new

.The settings will be saved if you entered and give OK

Once the main battery is removed for an extended period of time, the time and date settings will be reset to the default setting, and an icon will start flashing in your LCD monitor to notify you that the time and date has been reset.
Through the eye view finder you can see the settings detail.

Dark monitor

Since the D40X is an SLR, (single lens reflex), it is not possible to use the LCD monitor to frame your pictures before they are taken.

To view what your images look like after you have taken them, you need to use the 'monitor/play' button marked with a rectangular box

Please follow the procedure below: 1. While the message is displayed, press the center of the controller. 2. The LCD monitor and data panel will turn off . 3. Turn the Main Switch to OFF and remove the CompactFlash card from the camera. 4.
