Not getting what I see on my screen.

Recommended Posts


I am facing a problem with my X-T2.

When shooting at night and when the shutter is half pressed I see the image on the screen and I expect the image I’ll get to be the same but when I go back and look at my shot I see the image is under exposed. I don’t know by how many stops but it’s definitely a lot darker than what I saw when I was taking the shot. 

I don’t understand it and it’s extremely frustrating. 

Any tip will be much appreciated.

The screen has its own brightness and preview settings which you can change in the setup menu. By default the screen settings make sure that you see something on the screen in all environments including dark rooms. To make sure you‘re getting the correct exposure independently from the screen preview watch the exposure meter on the screen.
