    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

    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.
