Answers :

I realize these aren't the answers you wanted to see, but the D40 does not have any live view capability, nor does it shoot video. Nikon intended the D40 as an entry-level dSLR, with a minimal feature set. In fact, they didn't introduce the video until the D90, introduced more than two years after the D40. The least-expensive Nikon dSLR with both of these capabilities is the D5000.

Taking pics I just got a Nikon D40 camera and I can't seem to figure out how to view on the screen what I'm looking at when I'm trying to take a picture. I can view them in play mode after the fact, but isn't there a way to see on the screen instead of having to look through the little window to see what I'm shooting? Thanks in advance for any help!!!

Nikon Coolpix L18 camera LCD screen only shows jumpy lines of images. Took a test picture and viewed through a card reader to find that it is recording images, so the problem is just in the screen.

Am I loosing my mind?? My Nikon D80 no longer displays an image while I'm composing a picture. It definitely did..I was in the middle of composing and it just shut off. It displays in playback & after the picture is taken but no longer while composing. I've had this camera for over a year & use it frequently. I took it to a camera shop and they said the d80 does not show "live view" & I must be mistaking it for d90. I definitely have the d80.


You're not nuts. I saw a guy activate live view on the d80 while doing a demonstration on a Youtube tutorial. I just can't seem to find the video nor how to activate Live View on my camera. I think I'll try contacting Nikon directly ... Digital Cameras
