The LCD cannot be used to frame or compose images. The LCD is for setting up the various parameters available in the Setup menu and reviewing images.

I don't know how to use the lcd screen when taking pictures

Many cameras that have view finders do not support use of the LCD display to compose or frame a picture. This is generally to conserve battery life of the camera. Most of these cameras limit how long a picture is displayed on the screen to 10 or 15 seconds, immediately after taking for the very same reason.

The exception would be a camera that lacks a view finder - or has a menu item that allows the user to compose the picture on the LCD in addition to the viewfinder. Some manufacturers call this "live view". Check your camera manual to see if it is supported. If so, be sure to buy extra batteries!

I hope this helps & good luck!

Hello, could you help me please? On a canon 350D how do you switch beween evf to lcd when composing a picture? I cannot find any button that facilitates that function.

On cameras like these you cannot compose a picture on the LCD screen. You have to use the viewfinder and check the results on the screen afterwards. The viewfinder is not actually an electronic viewfinder, you are looking through the lens via a mirror as was the case on film cameras. When you press the shutter the mirror swings up and lets the image through to the ccd chip just as if it was a film camera.

No image on LCD screen before exposure can only compose picture through view finder

Does your camera have the feature "live view"? If not, you must compose through the viewfinder.

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.

Vewing the shot before I take it on the lcd

Hi Janet;
On most DSLR cameras you cannot compose or shoot using the LCD screen. The ability to preview the image using the LCD is fairly new to SLR's, and is known as "live view" on most models. So, like yourAE1, you still need to compose using the eye-level finder, then review your effort on the LCD later.

Battery life?

Using the LCD viewfinder to compose images drains the power capacity of alkaline batteries very quickly. Instead, use the Optical viewfinder to compose your images. Under normal operating conditions using the Optical viewfinder, a set of AA-size alkaline batteries should last for about 35 images. Additional tips for extending battery life: * Use the AC adapter to review images on the LCD. * Use the AC adapter to review images on your TV. * Disable Quick Review mode. * For longer battery life, use one of the following types of batteries: o High capacity alkaline (a new product on the market as of Jan 2000) o Lithium o NiMh (Nickel Metal Hydride) rechargeable. o NiCd (Nickel-Cadium)

Enter the MODE MENU and under the CAMERA tab select FRAME ASSIST. Select ON and press the OK button. You will now see a grid on the LCD screen. This feature is beneficial when you need to carefully compose an image, particularly regarding keeping subjects square or level. The grid can be used to ensure that the horizon is level in a landscape, a building is squared up in the frame or copy photography of pictures and documents is correctly aligned.
