  • 3.2-inch super-sharp 921,000-dot LCD monitor with automatic monitor brightness control: Ambient brightness sensor automatically adjusts LCD visibility according to environment for bright, crisp image playback, menu adjustment and Live View shooting. Enlarge images up to up to 46x to make on the spot focus confirmation.

 

 

  • Two Live View shooting modes: Photography Live View and Movie Live View modes add flexibility; exposure, whitebalance, histogram, focus mode, AF area mode and focusing accuracy are easily confirmed
