How do you turn off the highlight mode

I see the picture on my LCD display and the low part exhibits the word highlight. I toggle to histogram, how picture was exposed, etc and alwyas get back to the beginning, Highlight. I am unable to turn it off.  In fact when I press The OK button the red eye correction, trim etc. is what opens instead of turn it off.

    I have the identical problem! I see the picture on my LCD display and the low part exhibits the word "Highlight". I tried a supposed "solution" (press the 4-way Multi-selector on the back up or down - discussed on another forum), but always get back to the beginning: "Highlight". I am unable to turn it OFF!!! Anybody out there who can help?

You can turn it off. Turn on the camera, press 'view' (arrow pointing right abover the menu button). Wind the round selector through the various options and leave on the screen which displays the image info on it at the bottom - the shot count is in the top right hand corner. There is no full screen option without.

    I should mention that the round multi-selector is under the on/off switch.

    You don't wind the back selector you wind the front one! I've turned mine off and just did it again before posting.

    I think you are expecting the screen to display your images with no info on them. There is no such option. The one you should leave on is the screen with the shot count in the top right corner and with the basic info ie. shot size under the image. You cannot do it any other way.....try asking Nikon! And thanks for ruining my profile score.

How can I get the LCD to turn on?


The Display button toggles the information shown on the LCD (or turns it off entirely). Make sure you haven't inadvertently pressed it and turned off the display. It works as follows:

  • Press once for Normal view in LCD viewfinder
  • Press twice to turn on Rule of Thirds grid lines
  • Press three times to turn off LCD display
  • Press and hold 1 sec. to decrease/increase LCD brightness

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.

Nikon d50 highlights problem


That's the overexposed highlights display, to warn you when highlight details may be lost. Disable it by pressing the up arrow twice. First press shows you the histogram, second press shows pic only, no other info. It will remember this setting for all photos display (until you change it).

Strange icon on display in playback mode


You can get rid of the icon by first turning off the "Histogram" icon in the display/view menu.

Note: Histogram icon is the one that allows us to view and check the exposure correctness of a picture.

RGB Histogram will not turn off.


It's not hard... I had the same problem, but I found this solution on the internet and it worked.
First turn on the camera and press the play button.
You are now viewing your picture with the histogram.
Use the same joystick looking kind of button that you use to scroll left and right through the pictures, but instead of going left and right, go UP OR DOWN. That scrolls through the different display settings.

Hope that helps!
