[Question] How can I make it display the information when the picture display is OFF.

  • When either of the [AF/MF], [AF/Snap], [JPEG>RAW], [Color>B&W] , or [Color>TE] is set in [Function button] and the Fn button is pressed.
  • When the Flash open switch is pressed to open the flash.

The information display disappears and the picture display turns off again in the following cases.

  • When nothing is operated for several seconds, after the information is displayed
  • When the shutter release button is half-pressed
