Hi All

I have come across a problem when using my Nikon D5100 which I'm wondering if any one else has had the same problem. I find that when I am using my camera in the bright sunshine and looking through the viewfinder with my right eye and left eye closed it can be very difficult to read the shutter speed/aperture setting at the bottom of the viewfinder. I'm wondering if this is due to some sun light also getting in the viewfinder making it difficult to see these settings.


Has any one else had this problem and is there a resolution?

Are you wearing a hat when that happens.

Even wearing glasses, I never had a problem seeing the entire viewfinder using my right eye when outside, but I always wore a hat.
Usually a Tilley.

I wasn't wearing a hat so that is something I can try. I can see what I am taking a picture of ok its just the shutter speed/apeture settings which are displayed at the bottom of the view finder that I struggle to see.
