Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video The LCD screen, part of Nikon D5100 Essential Training.
On the back of your 5100 is this big beautiful three-inch LCD screen, and one of the…nice things about it is that it's articulated. It folds out.…It can come all the way out here.…I can tilt it down. I can tilt it up.…This is great if I want to shoot over my head. Maybe I'm standing in a crowd--I…can hold the camera up above and tilt the screen down.…This can be really nice for shooting at waist level or macro work, that kind of thing.…Note that I can also turn it all the way around this way, so if I'm shooting a…self-portrait or if I want the subject of my shot to be able to see themselves,…I can flip it around.…
When I do flip it around, the image on the screen reverses to show a mirror…image so that they see exactly what the final shot will look like. And of…course I can fold it flush against the back of the camera, which is where you'll…probably keep it most of the time.…This screen is also where you see all of the critical status information for…your camera, and it's where you manipulate a lot of the camera's controls.…
