    Is there a way to turn off the rear screen?

    I know the rear screen will turn off when you raise your eye to the viewfinder, but on my Sony a6000 I can set a function button so that the rear screen display turns completely off when I press it and will come back on when pressed again. On the Z6ii you can set a button to turn off the display parameters but not the entire display. I've done some searching of the online manual and I can't find anything, but I hope I'm just missing something. There are situations where having that illuminated would be more distracting.

    Re: Is there a way to turn off the rear screen?

    Never mind. I read the manual, but I didn't look at the diagrams. I asked a friend with a Z7 and she didn't know, so I don't feel as stupid as I would have had I asked my friend with the Z6 first. But if you're wondering...

    Jake, I had to look online to even understand what you meant since I am not familiar with any of the Nikon mirrorless bodies. Wow, that's so different than the display on a DSLR.

    In case anyone else has no clue how the rear display works on mirrorless bodies, take a look at the options. Seems as if they are headed towards artificial intelligence with advancements being made on newer technology. Have fun with your Z6ii. Is there much of a learning curve involved with these new features, Jake?

    Too early to say, but I'm thinking that it's going to be, "No for some things, and yes for others". Focus modes, I believe, are going to take the most time to get used to. You have everything you had with a DSLR, but now you have others that are great for specific purposes, like subject tracking and eye detection. From what I'm seeing modes that are really good for what they're designed for are often really bad at other things. I've never made big use of the U1 and U2 before, but there are 3 user settings on this one and I can see me setting them up for various focus modes variations rather than messing with the menus.

    I want to spend time learning more about what the mirrorless bodies offer. Obviously a lot of advancements have been made since the D750 was designed. I frequently switch between U2 and Aperture Priority. The only thing that trips me up is I prefer BBF in U2 for wildlife while keeping the shutter button to actuate the shutter in Aperture Priority. Since you use BBF all the time, that won't be a problem. It really isn't much different than switching between Aperture Priority and Manual Mode when you really think about it. Your settings will be stored and available to access quickly. I'm interested in hearing your thoughts after you've had time to test out your new gear.

    Jake, nice photos with the new camera. I agree the focus system is the most challenging thing to get comfortable with. Steve Perry actually has put together a book on the system. It is pretty good. I like his books. This one has some good stuff.
