Brightness on XZ-1 screen is very poor. Is VF-2 worth it?
9 months ago

I bought an 'almost new' XZ-1 camera and I am very unhappy with the screen brightness. I can't see anything in bright daylight. I am taking shots and have no idea what they look like. The info button doesn't have any effect in boosting the brightness. I have the bright set to max. I think I have faulty camera?

I am thinking of getting the VF-2 viewfinder mainly so I see and focus on objects. Is it worth $250? I find this a lot of money. Will the viewfinder work in bright daylights?
