Nikon D5600. Trying to learn Manual and keep track of what exposure settings I used

Just about all modern digital cameras automatically capture EXIF metadata in the image files they record; I can’t think of a camera that doesn’t. This EXIF data includes date & time of capture, camera model number, and most importantly, exposure settings — aperture, shutter speed, and ISO.

There are a few cases where this can’t be captured, but for most users, these case don’t pop up often. These usually involve using very old or adapted lenses whose aperture cannot be controlled by the camera body, or when using “dumb” (no electrical contacts) extension tubes or bellows between the camera and lens. In these cases, the camera cannot record aperture setting information, so you would need to take exposure notes for those images, and edit them into the image files’ EXIF data after you move them to your computer.

There are several programs that can edit EXIF metadata. Search this site for edit EXIF for several questions and answers regarding editing EXIF metadata.

Camera controls – How do I remove the grid overlay when viewing photos on my Nikon D5600?

I have a Nikon D5600. I must have changed a setting and don't know how to make the grid overlay disappear when viewing photos; that is, a black screen with "lines of longitude and latitude", which I do not want, superimposing the photo.

I am new to this camera and am trying to learn how to get the correct settings for normal telephoto photos. I want to use manual mode, not automatic mode.

What would make this screen appear after taking a photo? (This happened today when I try to change the settings, some of which I don't understand.)

How do I change this setting to see normal photos?

metering: why is my subject too dark when using automatic modes on Nikon D5600?

I have a problem with using automatic and semi-automatic modes. For example, I have a "pretty optimal" light, in mode "A" I set the desired aperture value, let it be 2.8 and ISO 200, when I switch to live display mode on the LCD, everything is fine, depending of conditions I get low shutter speed (up to 1 / 800s). After switching to the viewfinder, the time immediately increases to huge values, even up to 30 seconds. I can change ISO and aperture both ways, but the time doesn't change at all or the change is minimal, it "works" the same way in any auto mode, I tested it for both lenses, for different lighting conditions. The LCD screen shows a warning that "the subject is too dark", the time does not change when I put my eye on the viewfinder. The images are all blank (not surprising), and in AUTO mode, the flash always fires.

I reset to factory settings, reset all user settings, formatted memory card, downloaded current firmware from Nikon official website and reinstalled it. Nothing has changed:

  • LCD screen preview: ISO 2000 and 2.8 aperture, shutter speed has been set to 1 / 500s, photo is fine.

  • See through viewfinder: ISO 2000 and 2.8 aperture, shutter speed changed to 30 seconds, while I changed exposure compensation to -5.0, time decreased to 1/20 seconds, photo was overexposed.

In manual mode (and automatic when previewing on LCD) everything works quite well, I took several hundred photos and did not notice any problems with sharpness, changes in parameters are visible, I can even shoot in low light conditions, so no I understand if my Nikon is simply faulty, if I am doing something wrong or I do not understand something about its working principle.

Nikon d5600 – Clear latitude and longitude display when viewing photo

Nikon D5600. I must have changed a setting and don't know how to make the "latitude and longitude display" disappear when viewing photos; THAT IS TO SAY. Black screen with "longitude and latitude lines", which I don't want, photo overlay.

I am new to this camera and am trying to learn how to get the correct settings for normal telephoto photos. I want to use manual mode, not automatic mode.

What would make this screen appear after taking a photo? ( I just passed today when I try to change the settings, some of which I don't understand )

shutter – Nikon D5600 – The subject is too dark (in automatic modes)

I don't know if my question is going to be stupid, but I can't find the answer anywhere on the internet, i.e. I have a problem with using automatic and semi-automatic modes. For example, I have a "pretty optimal" light, in mode "A" I set the desired aperture value, let it be 2.8 and ISO 200, when I switch to live display mode on the LCD, everything is fine, depending of conditions I get low shutter speed (up to 1 / 800s). After switching to the viewfinder, the time immediately increases to huge values, even up to 30 seconds. I can change ISO and aperture both ways, but the time doesn't change at all or the change is minimal, it "works" the same way in any auto mode, I tested it for both lenses, for different lighting conditions.

error: use Nikon D5600 as webcam

I am trying to use my Nikon D5600 as a PC webcam, but when I connect the camera to the PC (Windows 10) with a Micro USB cable (to be clear, the same thing I usually use to transfer photos from the camera to the computer ) PC), and I try to open the Windows camera, this message appears:

We can't find your camera
(bla bla)
If you need it, here's the error code:

Does anyone know why it happens?

Nikon d5600 – Why does my DSLR display show an image settings tab while viewing other images?

When I press the play button to see the images that were previously clicked, the screen shows an image settings tab with the image in the background. This tab does not disappear until you enlarge the image.

The attached image shows the problem mentioned above.

Has this happened to anyone before? What I need to do?

How good is the Nikon 70-300mm lens that comes along with the Nikon D5600?

I am planning to buy a new camera (Nikon D5600) and it turns out that they have two variants. One of the variants comes with the usual 18-55mm lens and a 70-300mm telephoto lens. The construction in my opinion, as I have seen it, was perfectly fine for me. There are no problems with that. I want to hear from all photographers about their quality and focus speed.

I am talking about this lens model.

PD: I am a high school student who has taken an interest rather than an amateur in photography and is self-taught. I can't buy expensive lenses now, so suggest me if the 70-300mm lens is worth the price for a beginner or not.

How do I configure my D5600 in the manual so that I can see the ISO changes in the viewfinder?

When you look for information in the viewfinder, we are talking about the bar under the frosted glass:

(Page 5)

Section 13 shows by default the number of exposures remaining, but can be configured in other data:

(Page 5)

enter the description of the image here

To change it and display the chosen ISO value, go to Menu -> Custom settings and change b2: ISO screen to ON.

(Page 239)

enter the description of the image here

There you go, now you have ISO data in the viewer.

However, I will warn you specifically about this data. ISO is generally set to the lowest value with which it can be output to provide acceptable shutter speed and aperture range. Then, you will configure it and you will not see it again until you change the lighting … at that time you will reset it and then you will not see it again for a moment.

The number of remaining shots allows you to plan ahead, especially if you are photographing in an event (if it is lowered, change the card before critical moments).

Exposure and flash compensation values ​​can also change much more often and will be useful when necessary.

But, at the end of the day, it is your camera and you must configure the buttons and information that are displayed to work for you and your style.


I am learning to shoot manually and I have the settings configured on my camera ready to work. However, I can only see the changes in ISO, the shutter speed on the live view screen,

Seeing what you will get before pressing the button requires that the sensor be exposed and can provide you with a preview … what it requires to be in Live View. As xiota points out in the comments, mirrorless cameras use an electronic viewfinder, which is essentially a "live view" through the viewfinder.

SLRs and DSLRS use a mirror to allow light to pass through the lens and rise to the viewfinder so you can see exactly what you will get before the sensor is exposed.

This has many advantages over a mirrorless EVF and vice versa.

To learn, You don't need to see live!.

Learning to shoot means understanding light, how a light meter works, how aperture and shutter speed and ISO work together to create a perfect exposure of a scene. Start learning how to use your meter and go from there.

If all you do is to toggle some settings while in live view until you have something you like … you really haven't learned anything. Get to the point where you know what the capture will be even before pressing the shutter …then You have mastered the camera.
