I recently purchased a d7000 and have not yet had an opportunity to shoot much. This is my first DSRL thus I am a very much a novice. I have read 90% of Darrell Young’s “Mastering the Nikon D7000”. I understand maybe 75% of what I read and probably can apply less than 40% of what I have understood. Therefore, I am going to begin using the AUTO mode hoping to progress to the M, A, S and P modes with experience.

My concern: I want to take advantage of the SCENE Modes (Portrait, Landscape, Child etc). After selecting SCENE mode and turning the Main command dial I see the scene mode icons for each option but I am also supposed to see a small picture showing the effect. The picture does not appear. Looking through the viewfinder I do see the Scene mode icon I have chosen in the upper left hand corner. Also when I’m in the process of turning the dial the options stay on the screen for only about a second. Now this may not be a problem but what concerns me is, what have I done to not be able to see the small picture and are there other consequences for what I have done.

If my description above is unclear and if you have Darrell Young’s book you can turn to page 346 figure 8.18 screen 4.

Thanks

Don
