Bedde, The DX6490 has one on the left side of the electronic viewfinder. I have really bad cateracts and am almost blind in my left eye and about 40 percent blind in my right eye. the diopter helps me to get a clearer view of what I'm looking at. With out it I would probably shoot my foot a lot more than I do right now. If you wear glasses try looking through the view finder and turn the knob or dial until the picture it provides clears up. If you don't wear glasses try it any way as it may be out of adjustment for you as it came from the factory. Mine was but I had to have it to fit my eyesite.
