"Purpose of Flashing Areas?"


Corydon, US
          

Whenever I view photos in my D5000, areas of the image flash on and off. Are these areas flashing to indicate overexposed areas? If so, Is there a way to turn these flashing areas off? Thanks in advance...M.

Yes, the flashing highlights indicate overexposure. This is just one of the "Picture Information" screens. Use the multi-selector (up/down arrows) to scroll to another page. Or you can eliminate it all together by deselecting it in the Playback Menu under Playback Display Options.
