Chapter: Image Acquisition
Topic: Camera Settings
Just like any monitor, your camera viewfinder has user controls –and thus it can be adjusted wrongly.† If your VF is tuned too bright or too dim, it may cause you to use the wrong exposure settings.† Even if you’re used to using zebra bars, it’s still hard to avoid depending on your eyes!† But if what your eye is seeing in the VF is poor adjustment rather than poor exposure, you’ll create a problem. Calibration is shown for old-style viewfinders but the principles will apply to LCD viewfinders and screens.
