A6500 screen brightness in video mode
1

There is probably a simple answer to this... but I have been through all the menus and can't figure it out.

I used the A6000 for a year and never had this issue... just started with the A6500 a couple months ago and can't figure out how to fix this...

When shooting video, the lcd screen goes so dark that i can barely see it in outdoor light.  When taking regular pictures it is fine.  I have tried AUTO brighness mode... I have tried manual mode at full brightness... but nothing changes it.  The image if perfect when idle... but as soon as I press the video button and it starts recording, the image goes much darker.  I am in auto mode, so exposure is being done automatically and is perfect.  The images look perfect when I play them back on PC... ther eis NO exposure issue at all... just the fact that I can't see the image on the screen when shooting video outdoors.  The A6000 never had this problem.

I am hoping someone can tell me what is going on here...
