Question:
TOPIC: Camera LCD / EVF screen is too dark or too bright.

Answer:
Under dim lighting conditions, the image on the LCD or in the EVF will appear very dark. This is because there is not enough ambient light available for the camera to produce a brighter image in the display. You may try increasing the LCD brightness as per the instructions in your owner's manual. However, there is no way to increase the brightness of the LCD or EVF display beyond what the maximum setting will allow. The image in the LCD display will not be as bright as with the naked eye. Should your camera have an optical viewfinder instead of an electronic view finder, we recommend using the optical viewfinder to frame and shoot your subjects under low light conditions.
