The Shooting Information screen was introduced with the D40. The older D80 does not have it. Instead it shows almost all of the information in the control panel and/or viewfinder, though you have to delve into the menus for some of it.

Most of the settings you could change via the Shooting Info screen on the D40, you can change by pressing the appropriate button and turning one of the command dials.

The D40 was intended as an introductory dSLR, doing more handholding for new photographers, putting things into visual, menu-driven screens. The D80 was intended as a midlevel camera, allowing faster operation using more buttons. It does less handholding, but once you learn where the controls are, it actually is faster to use. (Okay, that was based on my personal experience, since I've used both.)

How do I turn on my self timer on my d40?


I'm going to assume you mean a Nikon D40. If I'm wrong, please reply to this post and enlighten me.

Press the [info] button to bring up the information display. Press the [i] button to put the cursor into the display. Use the multiselector to select the Shooting Mode (fifth item from the top, along the right edge of the display) and press the [OK] button. Use the multiselector to select the self-timer mode (one-handed clock) and press [OK]. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button as usual.

You can change the length of the delay with Custom Setting 16.

How do I set the resolution?


Press the info button on the back to bring up the shooting information screen. The second item from the top on the right column is the image size. Press the button to activate the settings, then use the multiselector to navigate to the desired setting. Press OK, use the multiselector to select the desired size, then OK to set it.

Your choices are Large (3008x2000), Medium (2256x1496), and Small (1504x1000).

Note that you cannot change the image size if you're shooting RAW. The image quality setting is the one just above the image size.

Hi, There were no instructions for the Infrared Remote (ML-L3) for my Nikon D80. What are the remote shooting modes?


Set the camera's shooting mode to one of the two remote mode. The quick-response mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back for triggering the shutter.

For full details on using the remote, refer to the "Choosing a Shooting Mode" section in your camera manual.

How do i turn on my d40 lcd screen


What do you want to see on it?

Press the Menu button to see the menu.
Press the Info button to see the shooting info screen.
Press the Playback button to review the pictures you've already taken.

If you want to use the LCD screen for shooting, then you're out of luck. The D40 does not have the Live View capability. The camera is designed to function as SLRs have for the last half century: you frame the picture through the viewfinder. I realize this isn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way the camera works.

I can't find the selftimer button and explain how it works


Press the Info button to get the shooting info on the display screen. Navigate to and select the Shooting Mode. 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.

Camera settings appear on viewfinder screen


Ok I just posted that I had the same problem and I just figured it out by trial and error. What I did was
press the playback button.
press OK
it will take you to the edit picture menu and the first choice is D-lighting. It should be highlighted Yellow. press Ok and then the screen will come up with 2 of your picture with different lighting. choose which ever one you want then press OK. The image will save and then the camera info should go away. I have NO idea why this worked but it did and I hope this works for you!!

During shooting, or when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, the number of images that can be stored in the memory buffer at current settings is shown on the exposure-count displays in the control panel and viewfinder. "r06" indicates that six images can fit in the camera's buffer, "r08" would indicate eight frames. Any other number could be displayed as well. Burst mode is used when you want to hold down the shutter button and continuously shoot. You are probably shooting in burst mode and your buffer is full, set the camera to single shot and see if that helps.
