    what is the feature called when you take a picture and the LCD view of it flashes in areas of your image as if it were over-exposed?

    and how do you turn this off in a D80?

    I'm asking for a colleague who just got one and doesn't know how to turn this feature off.

    I'm not sure what Nikon calls it specifically...but it's a highlight warning. The parts that flash are areas where it is overexposed to the point that detail/info is lost.

    I'm sure it's in the manual...so tell him to RTFM. ;)

    Hahaha. When you're looking at your picture, click the wheel up. You may have to do this a couple times till you get through all the info.

    But yes, reading the manual is a good idea. And you can even use it as reading club material - it's so huge!
