I assume it will also display the menu when you press the menu button?

The D60 does not have a Live View capability. You have to use the viewfinder just as SLR uses have been doing for half a century.

Change from lcd moniter to view finder


Try this, in your manual at the bottom of pg. 229 that says, "If you turn off the power while the 'shooting settings display' screen is displayed, the same screen will be displayed when you turn on the power again. To avoid this, press the <INFO> button to turn off the display on the LCD monitor, then turn off the power switch."
The converse also applies. Get into the shooting settings display with the INFO button and power down. The display will come on when you power up again.
It also solved my problem of getting the mode selection button selections to show on the LCD when needed.

Hey there,

The circular thumb pad on the back will set the display to single or multiple, or with histogram. Just press the upper edge or lower edge of the circular button to find the one you want.

Unable to see image on screen before taking picture only through viewfinder


That's the way this camera works. The D60 works as SLRs have worked for half a century. You view through the viewfinder, which views through the lens. The screen is for menus, setup, and image review, not for shooting. The LiveView feature, which turns your dSLR into a point&shoot camera, is a relatively new feature in dSLRs. Nikon introduced it into their lineup with the D3 and D300, and it took a while to trickle down to their entry-level dSLRs. While it's now in all their models, it's not in the three-year-old D60.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

I can't find my selftimer button on nikon d60. I an trying to take a picture of myself but I cannot find the button or make the one I thought work


Press the Info button to get the shooting info on the display screen. Navigate to and select the Shooting Mode item. Select the Self-timer (the icon looks somewhat like a clock with a single hand). Now, when you press the shutter button, the shutter will release after the delay. The length of the delay can be set via a menu option. The usual things about autofocus and exposure metering apply.

Nikon d60 does not allow me to view image whilst taking a picture


The D60 does not have a Live View capability. The monitor is used for shooting info, menus, and image reviews. It cannot be used to display the image while shooting. You must use the viewfinder for that, unless you connect the camera to a computer using the Camera Control Pro software from Nikon.

Nikon D60 and a box on the screen


i am assuming that you are not talking about the "shooting info display on page 9 of the manual.
if it is the Photo info (sounds most likely) you can change that display by scrolling you can change your display by using the multi selector. From that screen i believe you hit the left tab by the okay key twice. Play around. when you get the display you want. just leave it alone and they will all display that way. That happened to me during a soccer game.. very frustrating.. see no way to lock it.

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...

D60, can i take a picture using the screen instead of the eyepiece?


Sorry, you cannot use the screen for preview of an image before you take it. Since the shutter remains closed until you actually take a picture, there is no way to have an image on the screen before it is captured.
