EVF BRIGHTNESS

This adjust the brightness of the display in the EVF (electronic viewfinder) only. This doesn’t affect the Optical Viewfinder of the X-PRO2.

  • AUTO for automatic brightness adjustment, depending on the amount of light, so it will be brighter in a sunny area than in a darker room.
  • Personally, I prefer a fixed brightness and on the less than 0, usually a -1, so I can evaluate the relationship between the shadows and the highlights.
  • The brighter the EVF, the power is “gobbled” from the ‘small’ battery, the NP-W126 or the NP-W126S.

EVF COLOR

This sets the hue of the display in the EVF (electronic viewfinder). How cold or warm do you like your screen. This doesn’t affect the Optical Viewfinder of the X-PRO2.

LCD BRIGHTNESS

This set the brightness of the rear LCD screen. Similar to the EVF BRIGHTNESS.

  • Personally, I prefer a fixed brightness and on the less than 0, usually a -1, so I can evaluate the relationship between the shadows and the highlights.
  • The brighter the EVF, the power is “gobbled” from the ‘small’ battery, the NP-W126 or the NP-W126S.

LCD COLOR

This sets the hue of the rear LCD screen. Similar to the EVF COLOR.

IMAGE DISP.

This sets how long the images are displayed after shooting.

  • CONTINUOUS: The images are displayed until the MENU/OK button is pressed or the shutter button is pressed halfway. To zoom in on the active focus point, press the center of the rear command dial; press again to cancel zoom.
  • 1.5 SEC/0.5 SEC: The images are displayed for 1.5 seconds (1.5 SEC) or 0.5 seconds (0.5 SEC) or until the shutter button is pressed halfway.
  • OFF: The images are not displayed after taking any photo.

Displaying the image on the rear LCD “gobbles” the ‘small’ battery, the NP-W126 or the NP-W126S.

In my experience, this went from 375 images without the image review to less than 200 images per battery charge with the 1.5 second review. I didn’t try the other settings.

So now for it’s OFF. And when I want to “chimp”, I use the play/right arrow to review the images, but most of the time I do not.
