Any one with advice on this, please do so. I'm trying to find this so called "cursor". How does one get it to show on the LCD ? Also when I do stumblem upon the Comp. thing ,I see it in the viewfinder, but it does not show on the monitor ? Any answers ?
What I'm trying to say is, when I try to increase or decrease the exposure comp. by moving the increment, it operates in the viewfinder, but doesn't operate in the monitor. (Plus ,the "cursor" conundrum)
You have to bring up the "Information display" and if the "Shooting Information" is not displayed, press the "I" button (magnifying glass). Now use the multi-selector up/down to move the cursor from the highlighted object, see page 12 of the D3000 manual, to the exposure compensation item and press the "OK" button. Now you use the up/down of the multi-selector to adjust the compensation and the "OK" button to set the selected value.
Actually the 'Highlighting' is the cursor. Even though the explanation of page 12 is for the camera menus, it applies to moving and selecting on any control screen.
gkaiseril, Thank you. There is no page 76 in the manual I got with the D3000, only goes to page 61. On page 12 0f this manual there are instructions for attaching a lens. ??? I will try to follow your instructions & see what happens. Jaybee
