You mean the LCD screen and not the viewfinder, right? That's the way the D60 works. Like other SLR cameras for over half a century, it offers a viewfinder (that's the little window at the back of the "hump") for framing and composition. The LCD screen is for review (looking at the picture AFTER you take it) and for menus. More recent DSLRs offer a LiveView capability where you use the screen for framing and composition. Nikon introduced this feater with the D3 and D300, released a year or so after the D60.
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

I want to move my picture to the right. About 1/4 of a person or writing is not viewable on the left side of the picture


If the photo has already been taken, and the area to the left has not been recorded, then there is no way that the missing part of the image can be restored. If, however, you notice the area is not in the viewfinder prior to taking the photograph, the solution is simple - re-frame the image, so that all of the subject appears in the viewfinder. If necessary, step back a pace or two (being mindful of any obstructions or other dangers behind you) until the viewfinder shows all that you wish to record. It is better to leave an area surrounding the subject, which can be removed in pp exercise, than to crop detail at the taking stage.
If the problem occurs when you are printing images, ensure that your image-editing software is set up to display the entire image, and that you are not inadvertently cropping it.

Viewfinder is dark until picture is taken.


Have you tried pressing the display button ? It should switch from LCD to viewfinder.

My olympus e volt 500 will not display image when in shoot mode


There is a little button on the back, marked 'info'. Press it to switch from picture view to settings view. It also operates the viewfinder.

Olympus also has a good photo editing program that is free and it allows you to edit photos and stitch pictures taken pn panoramic mode into one panoramic picture. It's called Olympus Master.

Picture image out of alignment


Your viewfinder, focussing screen, and mirror are out of alignment. You need a service technician to fix the problem.

The Monitor on my Nikon D80 does not show any image when I try to take a picture - The viewfinder is ok and the camera takes a picture ok and displays it for about 4 seconds on the monitor after taking it....


You can switch it off so as not to show the picture after you take one.

You cannot use the monitor to show images as you're taking them. The D80 does not have a Live View capability.

Hello, new user for canon rebel. read manual for basic instructions & still get message : no image when i attempt to take a picture. how do i get the camera to show the image i'm aiming at?


Unless you have a Rebel XSi with "live view", you're not going to see the image on the LCD before you take the picture. No digital SLR made before 2007 had this option. You compose your picture using the optical viewfinder, and only see your picture after you have taken it. (But at least you don't have to wait until the film is developed. ;-) )

Canon EDS 30D Viewfinder Off during Picture Taking Works to Display Picture Taken How do I turn back on?


The EOS 30D does not have "live view". (Most SLR digital cameras made before 2007 do not.) By definition, an SLR (single lens reflex) camera looks through the same lens with the viewfinder as it uses when taking the picture.

So there is no way to see the picture on the LCD before the picture is taken, like you can with compact digital cameras. You compose the picture through the optical viewfinder, then shoot.

Nikon D50 LCD Display does not work


NatD, The D50 and indeed most SLR digital cameras [ I have a D40 ] does not allow you to take pictures using the LCD display ... this is by design, you are meant to use the viewfinder and the image you see through it is straight through the lens via a mirror block [ called a reflex pentamirror or prism ]. When the mirror is down such that you can see the image in the viewfinder it is obscuring the sensor [ the bit that takes the picture ] and when you take a shot the mirror lifts and the picture is recorded. Its this reason that DSLR's dont use the LCD to shoot, however there are a few now available that do let you do this, such as olympus, new panasonic one and higher end Nikon and Canon cameras. Hope this explains it without getting too detailed!

Viewfinder


Since the viewfinder sees the subject different than the picture taking lens, we recommend using the LCD monitor screen for taking macro pictures. The image previewed on the LCD monitor will be the exact image that is taken.
