I don't know, if this was posted before, but I remember people complain that the EVF of earlier SLT cameras would not allow them to use the camera for studio work. This was, because in manual mode the EVF image would appear too dark to see your subject.

I now discovered that the A99 has a setting that let's you override this behavior:

go in the menues to "Live View Display" and turn the Setting Effect to Off.

Now you can have a perfectly bright EVF image at any setting in manual mode and thus perfectly use the A99 also for studio work.

All in all, I am just super impressed by the A99. What a great camera so far, and it makes me very happy that I upgraded from my A900.

Thanks, Sony.

Yeah I had that problem at first as well and had a mini freak out until I found I could turn it off. Now I absolutely love it as I can expose for backgrounds with settings effects on, and see exactly how that will work. Lock my settings then turn effects off when I compose for the subject and use strobes.
