Customer Question
I need help using...

I need help using my laptop as a monitor when recording videos with the Nikon d3300

Technician's Assistant: What's the model and Operating System (OS) of your Nikon?

Umm where do I find that information? I'm looking at the bottom of the camera

Technician's Assistant: The Laptop Technician will be able to walk you through that. What have you tried so far with your Nikon? Have you installed any updates recently?

I just recently updated the firmware
