Hi, I don't have my manual with me. Is there a way to make the viewfinder display stay on longer? I mean the display as you're looking through the viewfinder that shows shutter speed, aperture, ISO, . When I prefocus, the information comes on for about 3 seconds.
Sometimes, when I"m in manual mode, I'd like it to stay on longer.

Hi, Joe (from a Montana Ex-pat relocated to Florida)

You go to the first tab on the menu and then down to 'review time' and set accordingly.

If you need more info here is a link to the manual in PDF form and the directions are on page 125.

As you have found out, "review time" only refers to the back LCD time period that the last shot is displayed for.

Just hold your shutter button at halfway to fix focus, as long as you hold the button depressed, the info will stay displayed.
