"Scene mode question"


Oklahoma City, US
          

When I set the dial to scene mode and spin the command dial nothing shows up on the rear screen. I have to turn live view on to get anything to show. Am I doing something wrong?

Best Regards, Alan

In Live view use the main comand dail(back) not the sub dail(front)
Sorry read the question wrong
with out live view You press the release button halfway the backscreen lights up and You can adjust the mode.

Cheers
Mark

Or, you can just push the info button on the back and then turn the command dial to select the scene mode. Avoids the chance of inadvertent release than a half press, but either works.

I see what you saying, are you spinning the front or back dial, because yes the screen is supposed to light up for a second or two, or until you push halfway on release button, i just retested mine to see if i could duplicate you problem and as long as you spin the back controller, the live view should show what scene selection, as long as scene selection is set, assuming but double check, good luck hope this helped

Are you turning the rear command dial two clicks?
With the camera in scene mode the first click displays the information screen.
The second click brings up the scene mode screen.
Each further click changes the screen mode options one step.

Photography is a bit like archery. A technically better camera, lens or arrow may not hit the target as often as it could if the photographer or archer does not practice enough.

Is there any way to extend the time the chosen Scene Modes are displayed on the rear monitor? On my D7000 they only flash on the screen for 1 second after selection, before the information screen takes it's place.
