Hi everyone, I recently purchased a D50 along w/ a Sigma 18-125. I'm pretty new to dSLRs, however I'm not a complete beginner to photography and I've done share of homework regarding how to use the D50 properly. This is my question:

I understand under certain situations, the meter can be uncertain and display "Lo" or "Hi".

*********
I'm wondering if there's a way to see the shutter speed despite this?
*********

Also, I'm baffled at why (having "about" the same settings: metering, ISO, exposure mode, etc.) my 2 P&S cameras (Canon A510 & Casio Z120) ae able to meter the same scene fine, while the D50 gives me the "Lo" message (the scene is pretty dark).

I've posted this at another forum ( http://www.megapixel.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=34076 ), but I'm looking to get more helpful answers from actual Nikon users here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
