    I only ask this after google searching and looking for my d90 manual, but I can only find the Spanish one -.- So on the light meter what does it mean when it isn't there? What does it mean when it is blinking? etc. Just whatever info you can give would be great. Thanks :)

    It disappears when you are in Automatic modes. When it blinks, often associated by a Lo sign, it means you settings are setup so you can't get a proper exposure, most likely in S and A modes.
    You should never see this if you are shooting in manual.

    Mods is there anyway for you to lock a person out of your thread? As bitter almost never contributes anything. Thanks.

    You can't escape the truth.

    YOU can put me on ignore, though.

    I do like the irony of you discussing maturity levels, and then running to the mods to solve your problems.
