I was shooting long video clips on the a6300 to test firmware 1.10 (yes, it solves the overheating issue) and noticed the monitor brightness seems to behave differently than it did with firmware 1.00.

With firmware 1.00 you could set the monitor brightness at any level, but as soon as you hit the video button the monitor would dim way down, and was almost impossible to read in sunlight.

Now, with firmware 1.10 you can't adjust the monitor brightness in the video mode; it seems preset to a medium value (not bright, not dim). And when you hit the video button it doesn't change - it does not dim way down. It may still not be bright enough in direct sunlight, but it seems quite a bit better than before.

Your information is false. I have the previous firmware and you can't adjust the monitor brightness in the video mode when 4K is selected.

Please be careful to not spread false info. Reviewing needs accuracy.
