Nikon D60 - Need some help

Hi People,

I bought a Nikon D60 last week, but don't know much about it yet.

I must have touched a button by accident or something, because after
I shoot a photo, a black rectangle with some information shows up on
the monitor. It also appears when I press the playback button.

I'm talking about information like this:

Camera:
Metering:
Shutter:
Aperture:
Exposure Mode:
Exp +/-:
Focal Length:
Flash Mode:

How do I get rid of the black rectangle with the information above ?
For now I don't need it. I just want to be able to see the photo that
I've just shot. Thanks.

Regards

Alfa

On the Nikon D40, I just touch the down arrow part of the ring around
the OK button on the back, and it goes away. I assume it's the same
on the D60. Bring it back with the up arrow.

I don't own any Nikon to tell you exactly what button to push, but I would
suggest to just enjoy the new toy while reading the MENU which I think it
should have the picture of that. Or just Goodle for the online (DPF) manual
then use the SEARCH option to locate it.

Thanks a lot Tony :-) I did exactly as you suggested and it worked !
The D60 seems to be similar with the D40. Now I have to read the
manual to avoid these little things.

Thanks for the suggestion Joel. It's true that we learn a lot by
looking at functions on the MENU. Sometimes it's intuitive.

You are quite welcome. And that's the way I play and learn from my toy. I
just try to enjoy it while taking my time to explode what it has to offer.

Or most newer DSLR cameras have way too many options/features to be able
to learn them all in short time. Matter fact, I have owned several Canon
DSLRs but only learn to use all available fingers to control all
buttons/wheels without having to take my eye of the view finder. It took
awhile to master but it's worth the trouble.
