Popular Uses of Viewfinder Information 

Previously, I discussed the most critical piece of viewfinder information, i.e. the Light Meter. Therefore, in this post, I am going to cover more viewfinder information tips.

The Viewfinder Information – Exposure

The Light Meter shows you if the exposure is correct. However, you need to know the shutter speed, aperture value and the ISO. Here comes the usefulness of the Exposure Info.

For instance, a sports photographer sets the exposure correctly, but is the shutter speed fast enough for the action? The photographer can quickly check the shutter speed through the viewfinder information.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”22517″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeInRightBig” title=”Shutter Speed”][vc_column_text]On the other hand, a landscape or portrait photographer needs to check the depth of the field. Therefore, the Aperture value inside the viewfinder is a time saver! In this photo I wanted enough DOF to cover the bench and the photographer. So I checked the aperture value right through the viewfinder.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”22518″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeInRightBig” title=”Aperture”][vc_column_text]Finally, the ISO indicator shows photographers the ISO setting and whether it is needed to be changed. In this shot after adjusting the shutter speed and aperture, I checked the ISO to make sure that it is not too high.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”22519″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeInRightBig” title=”ISO”][vc_column_text]

The Focusing Point

Focusing is another important aspect of photography. The Focusing point shows where the lens focuses. Photographers can move the focusing point around. In this picture, I switched the focusing point to the duck’s eye.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”22520″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeInRightBig” title=”Focusing Point”][vc_column_text]

Focus Confirmation

In autofocus mode, this piece of information is not that useful. However, when using the Manual Focus, this light is convenient. Usually shooting Macro photos or at night photography, photographers prefer to use manual focusing. Therefore, when focusing manually, keep an eye on this indicator. When it is a solid light, it means that focusing on the focusing point is perfect.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”22521″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeInRightBig” title=”Focus Confirmation light”][vc_column_text]

The Battery Indicator

And Lastly, the Battery Indicator is convenient for checking the charge of the battery. In cold temperature, the battery drains faster. Therefore, this feature is handy.

The viewfinder information tips end here, but there is more to learn about your digital camera.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”22522″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeInRightBig” title=”The Battery indicator”][vc_column_text]
