I'm hoping to buy a Nikon D5000 at some point during the next few weeks. I have spent months reading reviews and listening to friends - and am now ready to go.
I went to Jessops to have a hold and noticed that the menu display screen only seemed to display information for what seemed like a millisecond.
When using the wheel to scroll between the pre-set scenes (outside, indoors, portrait etc.) they were hardly displayed long enough to read them. If I buy the camera can I do something with the settings so that the information remains on the screen long enough to read?
I am surprised that the sales person did not help you. There are many buttons on the dSLR bodies and accidental depressing one will turn off the menu or preview, the battery could have been weak, or somebody may have set the timeout for the LCD screen. But the menus can be set to remain on for enough time to work through them.
Thanks - I was hoping that would be the case. Jessops is terrible in so much that the staff may as well be working in Tesco's, Marks & Spencers or HMV - they have no real product knowledge - BUT - they have a great D5000 bundle offer at the moment so I'll have to put up with their customer service.
