So i picked an R5 and this will be my first mirrorless camera. I wasn't prepared for the fact that the viewfinder is completely dark due to my shutter,ISO etc. Because of the lack of a mirror.

I'm just wondering how i fix this so that when i'm looking through the view finder i can actually see my subject without having to change the settings. Thanks.

Hi JG1984,

Welcome to the Canon EOS R Talk Forum - and the R System.

Are you talking about Exposure Simulation?

If so, you can disable this - p.262 of the manual refers.

I don't think thats what i'm looking for. Basically like when you look through the VF of a regular DSLR you can see what you're looking at regardless of ISO or aperture right, but unless i'm wrong with the EVF its takes your shutter, ISO,aperture into account to show you your subject.

Hi JG1984,

I still think ’Exposure Simulation’ is exactly what you’re referring to - or rather, the lack of it.

If you want a DSLR style 'pseudo OVF' view, disable it.

if you want to see how your shot will turn out (i.e. Exposure Simulation), use it.

(You can set your EVF up either way - note, by default, this feature is enabled).

You can adjust EVF brightness but I don't think that's where you need to go with this issue.

Exposure Simulation is one of the benefits of mirrorless/ EVF’s - depending how you shoot.

I keep Exposure Simulation enabled - as others have indicated, if you’re seeing darkness through the EVF, the shot is likely to be underexposed (this assumes the camera is on ).

Yeah, turns out it was the lack of the simulation that i was looking for. makes sense.
