    hi, i just bought nikon d60. i know this sounds really trivial, but i don't know how can i see the things i am pointing at with the lens on the camera dislplay. i just assumed that i will see what i "see" with the lens on the display when i turn the camera on... instead i had this menu with lots of options and stuff. i never had a digital camera before, only film and i just got the crazy idea i will be able see things only through the camera view-finder. pls assure me its not so! :meh:

    with the d60, you do not have the live view that is to see what you are shooting before you take the picture. you have to look through the view finder to see what you are going to photograph. i think only higher end models can offer that capability.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Most cheap 'digi cams' and some of the newer DSLR cameras allow for 'live view' on the LCD screen.

    You will have to look through the viewfinder to see what the lens is seeing...this is much better than viewing on the screen anyway.

    Live View.. meh, you don't need it anyway. Do you have trouble seeing through viewfinders?

    i was looking at the camera in the shop but i just automaticly assumed its got live view. do you know which nikon types have that? possibly in the same price area. i am leaving in two days for holiday and now it seems i have to quickly replace the camera. i am such a wreck now... :(

    Sucks when you dont thuroghly do the research. If you want live view just purchase a D3 or D300 dont even research the price....this thread is to funny.

    well after transition from film i was really looking forward to have live view... there would be lots of explanation why but the bare fact is that right now i am absolutely convinced of its use for me.

    Dude, no need for live view. My camera has it and I've only used it a few times when the camera was really low and I couldn't see through the viewfinder.
