How do I grab screenshots of the settings menus of my Nikon D60 without using a second camera to photograph the LCD display?

You could use a TV card/capture card, in combination with the video-out.

I grab screenshots by capturing the TV output from the camera. You could use a capture device on your computer or a camcorder with analogue AV inputs.

Print screen if you connect your camera to your computer and use the free software which lets you change settings on your computer. :D

Another solution would be with mirrors, the same way a barber lets you see the back of your head.

Thanks, All.

Note: The "3mm to RCA AV Out" patch cord from my Canon camera is not compatible with my Nikon camera! (duh) Time to dig the OEM patch out of storage and retest.

Thanks again.

Update to my last post: the Canon 3mm to RCA AV output patch cord *does work* if you flip the color coding. In other words, the black RCA out carries the video in this case, not the yellow.

Now I can capture the camera interface screens using my PC TV tuner card.

Yep, some companies do that (Apple, for instance). Good job :)

what's wrong with writing the settings down on a notebook?
