While displaying an image on the screen, press the up or down arrows on the rocker switch (instead of the left or right arrow to change the displayed image). You'll page through the histogram and one or two others before the image alone is displayed.

Blown highlights indicate over exposure. You'll need to reduce aperture size / increase shutter speed to prevent this. You may have the light meter set to meter an unexpected location in the frame or have set the camera to over expose by 1, 2 or even 3 exposure values. Check you manual to review these settings if you can't find them by scrolling through the menus on your own.

Good luck!

When i view photos on the lcd screen. The photo with the bright parts will turn black and white, like blinking.


You're seeing blown-out highlights. Those are the portions of your photo that have been overexposed and lost all detail, going pure white. This is a warning, since the camera doesn't know whether you're going for this effect. Blown-out highlights are generally considered a bad thing, and the proper fix is to reduce exposure to bring back the details. This risks losing details in the dark shadows but this isn't considered as bad, since we don't expect to see things in the dark.

That was the long answer. The short answer is to press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views of your photo.

When I take a picture,then look at the LCD screen,all the white areas flash black then white. If I download the pictures everything is fine. Is something set wrong? Also for no reason the flash stopped...


The blinking indicates blown-out highlights. Those are the areas of your pictures that have been overexposed into pure white. This is generally considered a bad thing, and the correct fix in most cases is to reduce the exposure to bring back details. Losing details in the shadows is generally more acceptable. But this is just a warning: the camera doesn't know what effect you're trying for.

While viewing a picture, pressing up/down on the multiselector cycles through the different available views of the picture.

When ever there is a picture taken there is a flicker when i view the picture in my camera it happens only on the bright spots ...ehy is it


It's normal.

The Nikon dSLRs have various LCD display modes, and one of them is called "highlight clipping warning display". Basically, when you set your LCD display to "highlight clipping warning display"(it's the mode right before the "histogram display"), it blinks white/black wherever your picture has blown highlights (i.e. where your picture is overexposed)

A histogram display is very helpful in telling whether you've got the exposure right, but to it isn't adequate by itself. With digital cameras, it's very important not to blow-out the highlights in a picture (they're similar to color positive film in that respect), since once you hit the maximum brightness, the image just saturates, and any highlight detail will be lost. A histogram display does a pretty good job of telling you how the image as a whole is doing, but what if there are just a few critical areas that you're worried about for the highlights? If only a small percentage of the total frame is involved, it won't account for many pixels. That means any peak at the "white" end of the histogram graph would be pretty small, and easy to miss (or just plain invisible). What to do? The folks at Nikon recognized this problem some time ago, and so have provided another special display mode on the D60 (as on most of their dSLRs) that they simply call "highlights," accessible via the Playback settings menu, under "Display Mode." This mode blinks any highlights that are saturated in any of the color channels. It does this by taking the nearly-white areas on the LCD and toggling them between white and black.
