Answers :

Most DSLRs (like the Nikon D50) don't have live\015\012view. In other words, in order to see the picture you must take it\015\012first.

About the auto review off, go to menu, "pencil" submenu, and the option is there (scroll until you see it)

With respect, you should read the manual. It's very comprehensive and needed. :)
