Record Mode Screens & Menus



Note: Because the D-540 has no video-out port, the color screen images presented on this page have been copied from the D-580, with any differences noted; the black and white screen images were copied from the D-540's Operations Manual.

Macro mode is activated by touching the up button of the 4-way controller in record mode; Super macro mode is activated from the camera's menu system. When either Macro focus mode is enabled the color LCD automatically turns on so you can use it as the viewfinder. The color LCD is the only information display so whenever you change flash modes or enable macro mode or self timer the screen will come on for a few seconds.
