hans devos , Dec 02, 2006; 08:28 p.m.

I just bought a D80 and on page 63(?) of the manual it shows and explains a histogram but NOT how to get to it through the menu! I can't seem get to it at all.... Does anyone know how to get the image to display the histogram so I can quickly determine the exposure values.....? thanks h..

This information is for a D200 so it may be a little different for your D80, but first off you need to be sure that in the "Playback Menu" under "Display Mode" the Histogram &/or RGB Histogram are selected to be displayed in the Photo Information. To access "Photo Information" for an image being displayed on the monitor, press the Multi-selector up or down to select the information you want displayed. Check your manual under the Playback Menu > Display Mode and Photo Information for the exact details.

In review mode [>], toggle the thumb switch (the menu wheel on the camera's back) up and down (left and right will move from one picture to the previous/next picture); this will move you through the various histogram, highlight, and review screens.

You can also use the command wheels in basically the same way.
