    Hi guys,

    I've been using my A6000 for a month now and have a couple of questions to help me work with it better.

    1. Is there a way to easily turn off the viewscreen (like a toggle) without going into MENU and switching to EVF only? I know when the viewscreen is on you can cycle through some displays using the up button, but screen OFF is not one of them. This would be useful when I am street walking and want to switch it off to save battery between shots. I don't want to use EVF only. It would be great if there was a way to toggle it on/off.

    2. Speaking of the viewscreen, a histogram is available. Where is a good resource to learn about histograms and what this data is telling me? Currently clueless!

    Thanks,
    Andy

    1- Go into the customizable buttons menu and see if it is there. you could then set it to one of the "C" buttons, or one of the FN slots.

    2- A few Youtube videos on the subject. Try this one:
