Another thing: the brightness through the viewfinder should be constant no matter what exposure mode you use, everything else being the same.

But is definitely different between av and m mode. My Tv(shutter priority) mode also dark like manual mode. Going back to store to ask.Originally Posted by ZerocoolAstra

If you're referring to LCD screen (LiveView image) getting darker when you switch modes, it's the camera's representation of how the final image will look like.
Chances are, the settings for the 3 critical values (shutter speed, ISO, aperture value) are different between your Av mode and M mode, hence the difference in the brightness of the LiveView image.
Oh sorry I realize I got mix up, is not the viewfinder but the LCD I'm referring to.Originally Posted by SkyStrike
I try tinkering with the Ido, shutter and f. No. but the LCD stay dim. I google the issue and I seem to be like a problem with firmware.Originally Posted by ZerocoolAstra
Switch the camera to M mode and set the same 3 values. Does the screen appear to be the same brightness?
Unless it's drastically different, I wouldn't be too bothered. Never expected the LiveView image to be an exact representation of the final image anyway.
Besides, you should look through the viewfinder more often
That brings up a good question. The LCD is bigger and so what are the advantages of looking in the viewfinder over LCD?Originally Posted by ZerocoolAstra
You might be tinkering with the ISO, shutter and aperture but seriously, do you know what setting and why you are applying those setting when trying to make the LCD screen "look" bright enough?

Finally got a 30l dry cabinet and a Siri tripod and an iPad ad card reader and a 50 mm prime lens. Probably done enough shopping for half a year!
Wow you can read my mind. Just reached home and going over to little Guilin to take my first series of shots! Hopefully can catch the blue hour.Originally Posted by oracle0711
