Panasonic FZ45 Clear menu info ?

1 year 7 months ago #716082 by Barwen18
Hi,

I;m hoping someone will be able to help with what is probably a very easy task to you but impossible for me, or it is just not possible!

I have just about mastered most things on my Lumix FZ45 but I am unable to locate in the menu site how I can remove all or almost all the info which shows up in the view finder and the LCD. 
Although I have managed to remove some of the info which appears in all settings. My whole view finder and LCD is surrounded by things that are simply in the way when looking at my subject.
Please say there is a way to clear these away. I am happy with the battery icon and the number of shots left plus the histogram if I choose to set it but the rest is just not useful and is simply spoiling the view.

I hope some one can help.

Regards, Barry

From the User Manual I note several things that might help

1)- User Manual - page-8 shows various knobs and buttons - incl the Display button

2)- User Manual - page 62 outlines operation of the Display button

It allows you to press and cycle thru 4 options
a) "normal" display - shows various bits around the perimeter of the screen
b) "no display" - lets you concentrate on everything
c) a 'rule-of-thirds' display
d) a reduced image size screen but using the RHS to display visual data

In image-playback mode, the same Display button will display exposure imformation as well as the image itself

3)- if your camera has somehow acquired more icons than shown in the sketch in the User Manual, you might need to do a complete Factory Reset - from the Setup Menu

Hope this helps
