The D60 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, using the viewfinder to compose photos. Only recent dSLRs provide the Live View capability, allowing you to use the monitor for that purpose. Nikon introduced this feature with the D3 and the D300. Currently, the least-expensive Nikon with this feature is the D5000.

Somehow my camera, a Nikon D60, is now displaying 4 smaller pictures on the monitor vs the full screen picture I just took. How can I change it back? I cannot find an answer in the instruction manual,...


You pushed the wrong button! On the left side of the LCD display, there are four buttons. One is labeled "ISO" and the other "QUAL". In the viewing mode, these buttons are used to allow you to scan multiple frames at one time. Each time you press the ISO button, it increases the number of images displayed. Each time you press the QUAL button it reduces the number of images displayed.

How do you show screen display


The D60 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, providing a viewfinder through which you frame and compose your picture. The screen is for menus, settings, and reviewing pictures you've already taken. The LiveView feature which lets you use it as a point&shoot camera was introduced with the D300, introduced a year after the D60.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way this camera works.

Nikon digital SLR LCD viewfinder


No. The D60's LCD is used for menus, shooting settings, and reviewing pictures after you take them. You have to use the viewfinder to compose your pictures. Nikon introduced the LiveView capability into their DSLRs with the D3 and the D300, introduced after the D60.

The image will not display in the viewfinder when taking the picture. Picture does show after it is taken but can not see it when trying to take it.


You mean the LCD screen and not the viewfinder, right? That's the way the D60 works. Like other SLR cameras for over half a century, it offers a viewfinder (that's the little window at the back of the "hump") for framing and composition. The LCD screen is for review (looking at the picture AFTER you take it) and for menus. More recent DSLRs offer a LiveView capability where you use the screen for framing and composition. Nikon introduced this feater with the D3 and D300, released a year or so after the D60.
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

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.

Why my nikon d60 wont display any image when i take photos with it


The D60 operates as SLRs have operated for half a century, showing the image through an optical viewfinder. Only more recent dSLRs have the LiveView capability allowing you to use the LCD monitor for this. Currently the D5000 is the lowest-priced Nikon with this capability.

I have a Nikon D60 camera. Switched it on today and there is no image in the LED display when I try to take a picture, the screen is black.


That's normal for the D60. It works the same way SLRs have worked for half a century: you view and compose through the optical viewfinder, then snap the picture. The D60 lacks the Live View feature of more recent dSLRs; the LCD (not LED) display on the back is for menus, settings, and reviewing pictures after you've taken them. It is not for composing and framing your pictures.

My Nikon D60 monitor is dark...no image preview, however, playback for viewing pictures taken works fine. I use the viewfinder for taking pictures, but wonder if I've done something to turn off the monitor...


No, you have done nothing wrong. The D60 does not have the preview function on the monitor like the compact digital cameras. Nikon gave that function a name. It is called 'Live View'. The newr models like the D90 do have that feature. You can read further about your D60 here: www.digitalcamera-hq.com

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.
