Press the [VIEW MODE] button to cycle through the following display modes:
The Eye Sensor
The eye sensor may respond to objects other than your eye or to light shining directly on the sensor.
The brightness and hue of the viewfinder and LCD monitor can be adjusted using the items in the [SCREEN SETTING] menu. Choose [EVF BRIGHTNESS] or [EVF COLOR] to adjust viewfinder brightness or hue, [LCD BRIGHTNESS] or [LCD COLOR] to do the same for the LCD monitor.
When [ON] is selected for [SCREEN SETTING] > [EVF AUTOROTATE DISPLAYS], the indicators in the viewfinder automatically rotate to match camera orientation.
The display in the LCD monitor is unaffected.
The [DISP]/[BACK] button controls the display of indicators in the viewfinder and LCD monitor.
To choose the items shown in the standard display:

Selecting [ELECTRONIC LEVEL] displays a virtual horizon. The camera is level when the two lines overlap. Note that the virtual horizon may not be displayed if the camera lens is pointed up or down.
Enable [FRAMING OUTLINE] to make the borders of the frame easier to see against dark backgrounds.
Histograms show the distribution of tones in the image. Brightness is shown by the horizontal axis, the number of pixels by the vertical axis.
Number of pixels
Optimal exposure: Pixels are distributed in an even curve throughout the tone range.
Overexposed: Pixels are clustered on the right side of the graph.
Underexposed: Pixels are clustered on the left side of the graph.
To view separate RGB histograms and a display showing areas of the frame that will be overexposed at current settings superimposed on the view through the lens, press the function button to which [HISTOGRAM] is assigned ([Fn/AE-L/AF-L BUTTON SETTING], Assigning Roles to the Function Buttons).
