Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video The monitor screen, part of Up and Running with the Nikon D600 and D610.
- On the back of the D600 and D610…is a large monitor screen.…This bright monitor can be viewed at just about any angle…when you're standing behind the camera.…The monitor serves four real purposes.…You can review images on the monitor,…and you can do this immediately after you take a photo,…or you can use the camera's playback controls…to browse through the photos on your memory cards.…You can also use the monitor…as a live view display as you're shooting.…This is really an alternative to using the viewfinder…and some photographers find it useful.…
When you're shooting video,…the monitor is the only way to see the scene as you shoot.…That's because the camera's mirror is locked…in the up position when shooting video,…so the viewfinder isn't really an option.…You can also use the monitor…to view your camera's menu options…and to make changes to the camera settings.…You can also use the monitor as an information display…to get important information about how…the camera is configured and metering the scene.…We'll explore all these options more throughout this course.…
