Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

Nikon d40x i can see on viewfinder but not on display on my nikon d40x please help

Answers :

That's because the Nikon D40x does not have Live View. Up until a couple of years ago, no DSLR's had live preview, due to the design of \015\012a DSLR over a point and shoot, as it has a pentamirror arrangement that \015\012effectivly deflects the light path to the viewfinder and only to the sensor when \015\012the internal mirror is raised. Early live preview models from Olympus had the \015\012world's first Live View system by flipping the mirror so that the picture \015\012preview could be seen on the rear monitor. Most manufacturers now incorporate \015\012Live View into most of their models but most Nikon consumer models do not as \015\012yet, apart from the newly relesed D90. The D40 and D40x are two year old designs \015\012and therefore do not have the more "modern" specs of say the Olympus E520 or \015\012Canon EOS450D. Most photographers trading up from a compact to a DSLR are \015\012surprised when they cannot use the monitor in the same way. However for most \015\012aspects of DSLR photography Live View is not something that is used all the \015\012time, low down shots, macro perhaps being the most convenient use, but for \015\012general photography there is no substitute for framing through the viewfinder, \015\012that's what we've been used to doing for over half a century! Besides as pointed \015\012out previously a DSLR is often too heavy to hand hold at arms length especially \015\012with a long lens.

Kodak M763. Display works all right if I review photos already taken, but there is usually no display when I try to take a picture. It's black. It may be that, if the battery is fully charged, I may see a display in a sepia tone or a bluish overcast. The information on the screen is bright, it's the viewfinder image that can't be seen. It would have helped me if I could turn it on while its charging, but I can't. That would have solved te question of a low-voltage electrical input. If a subject

Viewfinder I just got my *ist DS Monday, and this is my first DSLR. I have a general question, which I hope you guys can help me with. The image framing from the viewfinder is significantly different from the finished photo. The finished product always has a wider angle of view from what I am seeing while framing the shot. At the widest setting, there isn't much difference. At full zoom with an attached Nikon 6t, the object I am shooting is large in the view finder, but it appears half sized
