Don't know what I did but when I take a picture normally the entire picture appears in the LCD screen viewfinder immediately after I take the picture. I must have changed something but now when I snap a picture what I get in the viewfinder is a mini image of the photo in the upper left and a graph of some sort to the right of that and on the lower half of the screen I get a bunch of settings info. How do I get that back to its original form? Thank You.

hit the info button a few more times until you get the view you want.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

That's the histogram and is probably the most useful thing to look at to judge exposure after taking a shot.
Learn about it and it will be your friend for life! :-)

Oh man I fought with this for months before I figured it out. The above is correct - hit info until the display shows what you want (just picutre, basic info, histogram, etc). Then press the shutter to turn off the display. Next time you hit play the photo will show up with the same amount of info.
