Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

If the display does not switch properly from the LCD screen to the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) when the FINDER/MONITOR setting is set to Auto, look into the Electronic Viewfinder from straight ahead to help the display switch. Otherwise, change the FINDER/MONITOR setting to Viewfinder by following the steps below.

  1. On the camera, press the MENU button.
  2. Select Custom Settings.
  3. Select FINDER/MONITOR.
  4. Select Viewfinder.

    NOTES:

    • Setting the FINDER/MONITOR setting to Viewfinder switches the display between the Electronic Viewfinder and the LCD screen by pushing up or down the pop-up finder.
    • When the viewfinder is up and the monitor is open, e.g. for low angle shooting, and the FINDER/MONITOR is set to Auto, the image is displayed on the screen only.

In addition, if you set Function for VF close in Setup menu to Not Power OFF, the display will switch to the LCD screen while the camera remains on when you stow the Electronic Viewfinder, and the display will switch to the Electronic Viewfinder when you pop it up.
