I hadn't posted much here and I've been mainly shooting jpeg straight out of the camera but now that I have LR 5 I'm using RAW again and noting that Sony's ability to get the scene "right" is, well, pretty darn good - there's not much needed to do to the RAW files as far as I can tell yet.
Thanks again for the compliments on the photo
Which setting is everyone using for the LCD screen vs VF? If I have it on auto, the screen is ALWAYS on when my eye isn't on the VF. It's a waste of battery power. But when I change the settings to VF-only, the LCD is ALWAYS off which means even on the odd occasion when I want to change some menu settings or do a bit of chimping, I am forced to do it through the VF or go through the menu (via the VF) and change it back to auto. It's incredibly annoying.
It's not like in other cameras where the screen functions independently from the VF, it's always off until I press either the menu or play button.
Which setting is that?
