I have an issue with the EXPOSURE CONTROL (false color) assigned to the EXP-Button on the EVF. When I try to toggle the function on and off, the camera only switches the false color image between the viewfinder or the built in monitor on the EVF. So I can actually not turn it completely off. 

 

Idk if I am just stupid and couldn't figure it out, I tried to turn all user-buttons off and re-assign them, and re-assign the EXP-button to Zebra and rebooting the camera.. Nothing worked.

 

Has anyone had this problem and know how to solve it? I'm gonna ask the rental house to re-install the software tomorrow morning though. But I'm worried that its not gonna work, bc they have the latest update installed..   

 

Would be wonderful to hear your thoughts about this!!

Hi! If I'm not mistaken it is a feature to have false color in the viewfinder and without it on the monitor or vice versa. I was baffled by this as well.

To solve it I just held the exp button down for a while and it went normal again. Try it out :)
