I've just moved from the A900 to the A99, (ordered in May, arrived last week - Park Camera's). Trying to work my way around this new electronic mastermind from Sony so I can take control of creating the image. I've noticed that when in manual mode the display and EVF are subject to the value of the aperture, so if shooting at F1.4 my view is nice and bright, at F16 I can't see a thing either on the display or through the EVF. Any other mode is fine. Is there a way to change this so no matter what my lens setting I get to see the scene I am shooting? I admit I've not had a chance to go through the extensive menu list - it must be there somewhere?
Any pointers very much appreciated
Love my A900 and tbh there is not much difference in image quality but the A900 weighs a ton and for lengthy shoots and a big lens you need to take a protein shake.
