  • If you set FINDER/MONITOR in Custom Settings to Viewfinder, the viewfinder will always be turned on when the viewfinder is popped up.

In addition, if you set Function for VF close in Setup to Not Power OFF, the display will switch to the monitor while the camera remains on when you stow the viewfinder, and the display will switch to the viewfinder when you pop it up.
