Ok, while I'm still pretty new to the D3100, I am slowly figuring out all its nuances. Strange thing happened last night. I was at my son's baseball game taking photos and things were working out well.
I was using the sports setting, then all of a sudden (and since then) I took a photo and nothing displayed, just a black screen.
I can see the shot in the viewing eye piece, I can flip over to Live View and see the image just great on the screen, I can zoom, focus, and take the shot just like normal, but no "image" is on the screen. I'm hoping its a silly setting issue, but not sure.
Has anyone ever had this happen or can you provide any insight into the proper troubleshooting?
