This may sound like a stupid question but do you need to set the viewfinder on this camera? or do you just set the dials at the middle and that is the factory setting ?

sorry only really used the 150 and other similar camera's

all advice appreciated :D

Thanks In advance

First you need to adjust the focus ring to adapt to your eyes. Close the f-stop. Now focus the ring so that all the numbers come into focus.

Turn on the bars. Now the contrast, peaking and the brightness need to be turned all the way down when you calibrate the viewfinder. Turn the brightness and peaking up so that the black keeps black, and the white keeps white. This is an individual decision. Now you need to turn the peaking so that the bars get a distinct "line" between them. But some people like these turned all the way up. I don't.

As I said, adjusting the viewfinder is always an individual decision.
