Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting LCD brightness, part of Nikon D7000 Essential Training.
Your D7000 has a nice big beautiful LCD on the back, but there might be times if…you're in direct sunlight where the screen gets washed out and you can't see it.…Fortunately, you can change the brightness of the screen.…If you go inhere to your Setup menu there is an item, LCD brightness.…Pick that and you'll find that you got a range of -3 to +3.…They give you this gray ramp here, so you can see the effects of your brightness change.…So for example, if I crank up all the way to here, I can see the blacks in my…image are going to turn kind of a dark-gray.…On the other hand, if I go darker by dialing in a negative value, I can see that…the whites in my image are going to go to kind of a light gray.…
Why would I ever want to darken my screen?…If I'm shooting somewhere in very low light conditions, the screen maybe…really bright, too bright.…That maybe disturbing or it my blowout your night vision, so you may want…to darken the screen to give yourself a break when shooting in low light conditions.…
