Built-In EVF Menu
all right, We're getting into the controls that control the E V f on the camera. So the viewfinder you hold up to your eye. We have the three different styles here, my personal preferences style to because nothing is in front of the actual image that were photographing. And there aren't any colors, too. Skew your view of looking at the colors in the photo itself. But good options all around. All right. Info settings. So when you press the info button, which types of items are you going to see in the viewfinder? So once again, just uncheck all the items that you don't find useful for your type of photography. We've talked about grids before, but this is just simply the grid that you see in the viewfinder normally left off. I will occasionally turn it on. Depending on the project I'm working on, the I sensor will automatically switch back and forth between the IV E f and the LCD, and if that for some reason is not working for you like you have your hand in back of the camera and it's aut...
omatically switching when you don't want it to, you can turn off that TV F switch so that you are just manually going back and forth on the options. If you have found that the E V f doesn't quite look right, the brightness or the color of it is not right. You can go in and you can tweak the brightness in color. I hope you don't have to do this. Most people will not be doing this halfway level. Okay, this is kind of interesting. And so when you press halfway down on the shutter release the light meter is replaced by a level that tells you whether you're tilting the camera left and right. And so normally you hold the camera up to your eye. You figure out your exposure, and then when you're getting close to taking the photo, you're gonna press halfway down on the shutter release. And that's a good time to have a level to see if you have the camera level. If you are wanting to look at the light meter the whole time, leave this feature off. But I would say Leave it on and it's gonna be a great way to make sure that you get level horizons. All right. Simulated optical viewfinder and surprisingly, I'm gonna As much as I like to have the best view possible looking through the viewfinder, what's even more important to me is getting a view that represents the brightness of the photo in here. And so that's one of the beauties of a muralist camera is that you can see whether you have your shutter speed set too high or too low, whether your picture is going to be too light or too dark. And if you turn it this simulated optical viewfinder on what it does is it forgets about the exposure information, and it's just trying to give you the best image possible, and this is gonna be very useful for some people in certain types of photography. But I think for the average photographer it's much more handy to get a better representative representative representation of what the final image is gonna look like. And so if you leave this turned off, you're gonna be able to get a good view and see what that final image looks like.
