    Default Diopter setting...

    Eh, if i view my camera, i set the diopter towards minus (-) then its short sighted or long sighted?

    now abit blur when viewing the max of minus, should i get a -1 or +1 diopter attachment?

    -minus should be short sighted for optometry terms. If the diopter scale adopts the same reading scale then -1 means short sighted '100 degrees'

    If the lens turn dark, may not get a correct exposure feeling when look at the camera lcd for viewing, have to rely on histogram. Viewing through VF usually is not a problem, but somehow it's a bit darker than usual, manual focus become a pain though.

    ya, i think i having bokeh all the time man... hahaha...

    had my eye tested yesterday, no myopia or simi pia, only got astigmatism... haha... 100++ on 1 eye, the other slightly lower.

    optician said that its optional to have glasses, but i might be reliance on it, since i dun wear glasses now.
