"This option is not available with the current settings"


US
          

Hi,

I recently purchased a D80 and am enjoying learning to use it. I shot a lot of B&W in the 70's and 80's, so I know the basics - of course, the D80 is a very different beast to my old SLR.

I'm trying to change the Optimize Image settings, but cannot open the menu - I get the message "This option is not available with the current settings"

I've tried changing various settings, but as I don't know which setting *needs* to be changed, this has proved fruitless.

Which setting or settings do I need to change in order to access the Optimize Settings menu?

Thanks in advance,
John

Figured it out!

The Optimize Image setting is not available in Auto - just M/A/S and P.

Doh!

Go to the set up menu (the wrench). In the CSM/Setup menu, choose full. It is now set up as Simple. see page 101 of your manual.

It was set to "Full". The issue was that the Optimize Image menu is not available when the camera is in full auto.
