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.

HAVE NIKON D40 THE LARGE MONITOR AT BACK OF CAMERA HAS BEEN TURNED OFF SOMEHOW HOW DO I TURN BAK ON????


turn on your camera
press the menu button on the back og the camera
using the switch to the left of the screen, hit the left side once to move the screen cursor to the small icon on the left of the menu screen that looks like a "penci".
now click the button to move the highlight back to the right side then move up or down to select "07" Image Review.
hit the 4 way button on the right side to show the two options, on or off.
move the highlight up or down to select the one you want (assuming you want "on"), then press the center of the 4way button, "OK". now when you shoot a picture it will show up on the back screen until you touch the shutter release button again.

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.

Shutter release not responding


Hi tmclaughlin0, In the camera is in AF-S mode, the camera will not shoot until it acquires focus. Look on page 29 of the D80 manual.

I'm getting the F- - code in the screen of my Nikon D80 SLR. Also, when I press down on the button to take a picture it shows r11 where it shows the number of photos available to take.


i think the f-- code means its not recognizing your lens correctly. make sure all the contacts on lens and camera are clean. the r11 is the buffer. nothing to worry about. The number of images that can be stored in the memory buffer at current settings is shown in the exposure-count displays in the
viewfinder and control panel while the shutter-release button is pressed. This number is updated as photographs are transferred to the memory card and more memory becomes available in the buff er. If 0 is displayed, the buff er is full and shooting will slow. Shooting can continue up to a maximum of 100 shots.

you can get the d80 manual here if you dont have it

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.

D40 menu screen problem


i'll give you 2 solutions for this one

If you are talking about the MENU that shows up on the picture regarding the ISO, FLASH, APERTURE, WHITE BALANCE and Whatnot, you need to press the up arrow or down arrow buttons on the directional keys to remove the menu on the button


but if you are talking about the MENU which you can tweak different settings you just have to do a half-press on the shutter release button which will turn off the screen.

Nikon d80


Similar problem here .. on a D40. I'm suspecting the shutter release button (after looking for lots of dependencies - like AF sensor malfunction, time from power up, auto-off timer settings..) .. since it does fire if I press the button at an angle. I was using the switch off and on technique for a while but now feel that that worked only because I jab at the button at a slightly different angle after operating the power button with the same finger.
