Does anyone know if there is a way to leave the rear screen on with shot info showing? Or is it required to use the top LED or inside view screen? (other than temporary info button) It is a really minor thing, I have become accustom to viewing my Sony that way.

Try [c4 Monitor off delay] setting to 10 minutes, in the [Custom Settings Menu]. Don't forget to change [c2 Auto meter-off display]. However the default is off, so I figured there must be a good reason. This is my work around: Select ['light' and information display] in [f1 'light' switch]. The power switch surrounding the shutter button has an arrow pointing to a 'light' symbol to the right of the [ON] position. Now when I want to read the display I flick the power switch to the right. Flick it again and it toggles off. Now the screen is off and doesn't affect my vision when I put my eye to the viewfinder.

Thanks, I just wasn't looking for the correct terminology in the manual. Information screen timer delay I think will give me what I am looking for. Took for granted the a900 had a sensor to tell when you had your eye to the view finder and shut off the info screen.

Light from the screen can affect exposure. A sensor to turn off the screen, when your eye is at the viewfinder, sounds like a no-brainer to me. And a menu option to turn it on or off.

I think I figured out a solution....in custom menu c9, I set the back screen to come on with eithe the info button or rotating the on/off past on to the little light bulb icon. It shuts off when I focus. Think it can work with this.
