E-M1.2 playback showing in EVF not on screen.....

Now why is that........

The playback shows in the EVF, I take my eye away to look at it on the screen, it's not there.

When I take a shot using the screen the playback appears there.

I inadvertently did a whole camera reset and it's been like it since then....Dahhhh.

TIA

Does pressing the Screen button while your eye is away from the EVF help?

No, afraid not.

The really frustrating thing is, all was fine until I did the inadvertent reset.

Update, if I set REC VIEW to Auto it works, the shot taken stays on the screen until I touch the shutter button or put my eye to the EVF.
If I set a time for the RV the shot taken using the EVF does not appear on the screen only in the EVF.

Well that's as clear as mud I guess

Sorted......A full camera re-setup tohttp://www.wrotniak.net/photo/m43/em1.2-sett-sheet.html has cured it....Ho-Hum.
Still don't know what I did/did not do.

Why not restore your camera's settings from the backup. It will be on your computer from when you last stored it or when you updated the firmware.

Most people turn Rec View off so no time is wasted between shots. Press the play button to review the photos on the screen or EVF.

You run the Olympus Updater. You need the latest version of it (v2.1).

It lets you make backups and restore them. You can use it to copy settings from one camera to another as well.

If you have done a firmware update it makes a backup file of the camera settings on your computer, then does the update, and then restores the settings from that file. So if you have done an update, you have already made a backup. You could use that file now, that is what I was suggesting.
