X-E1/X-E2 EVF question
7 months ago

I took my new X-E2 out for the first time in bright sunlight today to shoot.  Previous outings have been on overcast days.  I was at the parade for the Military Bowl game and wanted to take some pictures as a learning experience with the new camera.  I found that I was struggling quite a bit with the viewfinder in the bright sunlight.  I actually had to put my left hand over the top of the camera when looking through the viewfinder to be able to see the image.

Any suggestions on how to deal with this type situation would be greatly appreciated.  I don't ever remember having this problem with my X100, even when using EVF on that camera.  Quite possibly I have something set up incorrectly for this type shooting.  I have the EVF/LCD setting on Eye Sensor so when I put my eye up to the view finder the EVF switches on.

Thanks
