    EVF brighter than actual picture

    when i look into the view finder, the image displays a lot brighter than how the actual picture looks on the preview screen. is this normal? is there anyway to calibrate the brightness of the display?

    On the A7, EVF and rear-panel LCD brightness are controlled independently. The settings are here:

    Menu Button->Toolbox icon->Page 1->Viewfinder Bright. (I left mine on Auto)
    Menu Button->Toolbox icon->Page 1->Monitor Brightness (I left mine on Manual)

    But I wouldn't use either to judge my exposure: That's what the histogram is for.

    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
