It looks like Playback\Rotate tall (on/off)
Thanks for the reply Mike but i have done that quite a few times now and it dont work,i have e-mailed Nikon to see what they say
Again thanks for the help,Ian
I suppose I'm stating the obvious but doesn't it rotate automatically when you turn the camera on its side?
Yes it does it's that what i want to turn off,car'nt work out how to do it
Oh, I see!
I thought that by "maximising" the use of the screen you meant you wanted to use as much of it as possible.
He does want to use as much of it as possible. When you rotate the camera during playback the pictures don't rotate like they do on a Smartphone. The autorotate Ian is talking about is when the camera displays a portrait picture the right way round, he wants to turn that off so that it displays it normally filling the screen.

They did on my Kodak although I have to admit I've never looked on the camera I'm using now.
I don't really get the rest of what you're saying though Chris.
You've got the wrong end of the stick.
When Ian takes a photograph in portrait mode the camera adds a 'flag' to that image file to say it should be displayed in portrait mode. This means that portrait images are displayed on the back of the camera with two black bars, one either side. Ian wants the image to fill the screen instead (so he can check for sharpness or what-have-you more easily.
See page 128 of the manual.
Thanks chaps i have managed to sort it out not too sure how and User Manual seems to only have 61 pages,Can anyone tell me where i can get a copy on the internet to see if i have it all,
You could always try googling "nikon d3000 manual", which is what I did.
Thanks just doing that now good old google
Is this of any help?
Thanks EOS fan i have now downloaded all of the manual for the d3000 from the Nikon website.
Thanks all again,Ian
