Default 7Hi & EVF

Just acquired a 7Hi. This is my first time with an EVF and am having a difficult time focusing, both the scene and data. I'm asking since I've never had a problem with my old cameras (even without using the diopter adjustments). Is this a function of the EVF & if so, is there a solution?

Thanks for any help.

If you don't see any difference while turning the diopter adjusting knob , it could be a defect, I guess , try one at the store ?

Default 4X mag

You'll need to use the 4X magnification for manual focus. Once you get used to it you'll find it accurate.

I second Jim!

BTW you never need to go to MF mode to manually focus... When DMF is displayed after the quick AF has locked, push the 4x button and you can then, using the focus ring, manually overide the 7Hi with greater accuracy. Continue to press the shutter down and you'll capture the image in full frame (ie not @ the 4x setting)

Thanks all. I guess I'm just used to purely optical viewfinders. The fuzzy data must be a function of the apparent distance to the data display.

The EVF is not supposed to be fuzzy. Something is wrong or your vision needs an extreme correction if you can't bring it into focus with the diopter adjustment on the left of the eyepiece.

on the left side of the evf there is a tiny wheel that is a diopter adjustment. play with that and it all should become clear to you it's black on black so it's a little hard to find now.
