"Scene mode and length of time monitor is on."


Etna, US
          

I don't normally use 'scene' mode, but I noticed that when I rotate the command dial the scene selection stays on for about 1 or 2 seconds... is there a way to lengthen that time?

I don't have a camera with the Scene Modes to check, but I think this time-out delay should be adjustable by either Customs Setting c2 or c4 - check pages 214-215 in the camera manual for details.

Monitor off delay has nothing to do with the Scene display. I have all mine set for 5 minutes, and my screen still goes off in Scene mode after 2 seconds.

I can't find anything in the manual about how to adjust it, so my guess is Nikon thinks we can figure out what Landscape or Blossom means within that time frame.

Have you also tried adjusting Custom Setting c2 - Auto Meter-off Delay?

If so, I guess you're right and there is no way of adjusting this

Mine's set for 6 seconds, yet the Scene screen goes 'poof' in 2.
