Nikon D700

The D700 features a large 3.0-inch color LCD display with 920,000 pixels that makes accessing menus and reviewing images a pleasure. The surface is scratch-resistant and Nikon supplies a clip-on transparent LCD protector.

To the left of the color LCD is the MENU button, which calls up or dismisses the menu system. The PROTECT button is used to mark images to prevent erasure, when accessing menus it is the Help/Info button. The THUMBNAIL button displays the playback index, as well as zooms out when an image is magnified. The ZOOM button is used to magnify the image when in playback mode. The OK button accepts menu selections.

To the right of the data LCD is the MULTI-SELECTOR which has 8 positions (up, down, left, right and diagonally for selecting AF areas). It is used for menu navigation, selecting the focus area, selecting images for playback and the mode of playback display, selecting thumbnail images and more. The Multi-selector can also be pushed straight in to perform another function - which is programmable. The outer ring is for locking the Multi-Selector in capture mode to prevent accidentally changing the selected AF area. The AF-AREA mode selector switch lets you change between Single-area AF, Dynamic-area AF and Auto-area AF. At the bottom you will find the 'Info' button that brings up and dismisses the camera information from the LCD screen.

Like many new dSLR models these days, the D700's 3-inch LCD also works as a Shooting Information Display. The information displayed includes shutter speed, aperture, the number of exposures remaining, buffer capacity, AF-area mode, etc. Basically all the same info that the data LCD can display. To active, press the INFO button on the back. To clear the screen press the button again or press the shutter release halfway.



I/O Interfaces
