"Info display"


Portsmouth, US
          

Does the info display on the d5300 rotate like it did on the d5000. I have looked in the Manuel and even did a Google search before posting here.

Thankyou,

Bob

No. The display doesn't rotate like the D5000.

I have the camera.
It tilts and rotates
I do both when I put it away to protect the screen by facing it inward.

The new D5300 LCD is also larger, brighter, and has a lot higher resolution.

Or not...

I think Bob was asking whether the content of the information display is rotated on the rear monitor when the camera is in portrait orientation, not whether the physical screen itself can be rotated.

OK the answer is still YES

I just turned on the info display and rotated the LCD
it will not rotate tall, but it does stay inline with the camera body.
Thus when you flip it, the display is still right side up.
(However,If you take pictures with the camera upside down, you are out of luck unless you are also upside down)

I think there is some confusion here.

The D5000 had a feature whereby the information display on the rear monitor would "re-arrange" itself into a different, portrait-formatted, display so that the contents were readable when the camera was held in the portrait position.

Does the D5300, with the rear monitor folded against the body in its "normal" position, do that? I believe that is what was being asked, and according to the D5300 manual, the answer is "no".

Thats right Brian

What the D5000 did was not like "rotating tall" - the elements of the information display were re-arranged to fit the portrait format. I think we are all now agreed that the D5300 lacks that feature - as stated by Gerold in reply #1

For those who aren't familiar with the D5000's feature, here is the relevant page from the manual to illustrate how it looks...

Thank you Brian, you are correct, that was my original question. It was a great feature when shooting in the portrait position. Sorry for creating confusion, with the question.

Do you know the password to unlock the No Print version of the D5300 manual?
Or, do you have a link to a printable one?
I found one online, it is 300 pagesinstead of the 104 pg no-print version on Nikon USA.
http://download3.nikonimglib.com/archive1/nDjd000XOIQF00mktpj7624w9V96/D5300RM_%28En%2901.pdf

I wanted to paste the Info Display page here like you did with the one for the D5000.
I also often like to take a page with me into the field.


I also wonder how I can program one of the info buttons?
Why did they waste a button when one could do?

Maybe we need to get our Firmware request into Nikon ASAP?
I would like to use the top Info button to change:
Aperture, speed, ISO, or etc.

Not being in USA, I found the D5000 manual at Nikon UK, here. No passwords were required.
