Question about Nikon Cameras

1 Answer

I have a d80 and I have two problems: 1) I can't get the monitor to work while I am taking the picture, I can only review it. 2)Whenever I take the aperture out of the locked position of 22, the aperture reading on the control panel blinks: F EE, and the remaining exposures reading changes from exposures remaining to: r11. Please help.

1) The D80 does not have a Live View capability, you must use the viewfinder. The display is for menus and reviews.

2) Leave the lens locked at the smallest aperture (highest number). Change the aperture using the command wheels.

The r11 is not an error, it's simply an indication of how many more pics you can take in a burst before the buffer fills.

Nikon D80 how do I get the screen on the back switched on and showing the photos I take ?


You don't. The screen on the back is for menu settings, shooting information, and reviewing pictures you've already taken. The ability to see the scene before taking pictures was introduced with its successor, the D90. With the D80 you need to use the viewfinder to compose and frame your pictures.

Lcd doesnt work for picture taking


It's not supposed to. The D80 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, allowing you to frame the picture through the viewfinder. The LiveView capability was introduced with later cameras such as the D90 and D300. On the D80 the display is used for settings, menus, and reviewing pictures after they've been taken.

I have a d80.problem: lcd will not show anything. lcd will show previous taken pictures


Which is it? The LCD will not show anything, or it will show previously taken pictures? Does it show menus when you press the MENU button?
The D80's LCD will not show pictures before you take them. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing pictures already taken. You must use the viewfinder for composing your pictures. The LiveView capability which lets you use the LCD for composing is a recent development in DSLRs. Nikon introduced it to their product line with the D3 and D300, released years after the D80.

How can i used the LCD monitor during taking pictures? as of present i am only using the viewfinder? pls help me set my cam...


The D80 does not have the LiveView feature to allow using the LCD monitor for taking the picture. Nikon introduced this feature with the D3 and D300, which came out well after the D80. You have to use the viewfinder.

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

LCD Monitor


You are plainly unaware of the potentials and hang ups of owning a SLR camera
A SLR camera such as this does not offer a monitor preview like most other cameras.
This is because the viewfinder[via a mirror] uses the lens to view the scene.

There are some Olympus models that allow it via an electronic trick and many other makes that appear to be SLR are in fact not and utilize a small LCD screen in the eyepiece.
But a true SLR cannot do this.

Can't turn off/disable optimize image screen- nikon d80


Ok, all you need to do is:

1.Hold the camera normally like you would take a picture.

2.Turn it on and review a picture.

3. While looking at a picture, take your index (pointer) finger and rotate the front "wheel" right under the shutter release button. This switches the viewing mode, and should solve your problem.

No image on LCD monitor


It sounds like your camera has the review time setting set to a short value like 1 second. Look in your user manual for Review Time and then follow the steps to change the review time setting on your camera. If this doesn't solve your problem, it would help to know:

1) Do you have your user manual?
2) What do you have the Review Time set for?
3) If you go to playback mode can you see the picture for a longer time?

The Monitor on my Nikon D80 does not show any image when I try to take a picture - The viewfinder is ok and the camera takes a picture ok and displays it for about 4 seconds on the monitor after taking it....


You can switch it off so as not to show the picture after you take one.

You cannot use the monitor to show images as you're taking them. The D80 does not have a Live View capability.

Monitor does not stay on


The LCD monitor screen at the back of the camera does not display a live picture like many point-n-shoot digitals. It only displays after the pic is taken. Use the LCD on the top cover to check your settings. Please leave feedback if this helps.
