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.

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.

Hello i take a pic but the white section flashes black nikon d60


I'm going to assume you're talking about the picture review on the back display. If I'm wrong, please please let me know.

You're seeing the highlights. Those are the areas of the picture that are overexposed and thus have lost all detail. That's not necessarily an error, though often it is. The proper solution is to reduce the exposure and shoot again.

The quick solution is to press Up or Down on the multiselector while viewing the picture to change your view of the picture. The camera provides several different views, including Highlights, Histogram, and several screens of Image Data.

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.

How do I stop my Nikon D60 from highlighting white spots?


When you are in the playback mode, press the up or down arrow on the back dial until the screen scrolls through the various overlays until you get to the screen you want...usually the screen with the frame numbers on it. If this helps, please rate accordingly, thanks.

Check the white balance. Set it to the corresponding lighting conditions and try the white card setting. It should be the last option on the white balance menu. To use it, snap a picture of a white piece of paper and save it. Just experiment with different settings till you get good results. Best of luck!
