    Hey guys,

    I have a newbie question for you :)

    When looking at my EVF before taking the shot, I see the regular white histogram, but then there are these little green colored areas. What do the green areas signify?

    There are orange bars there too sometimes and I've worked out (or guessed) that they are part of highlight clippings. So maybe the green just shows shadowed regions - I dunno?

    Thanks in advance.

    From the manual, page 40:

    "Areas above the upper limit at shooting are displayed in red, those below the lower limit in blue, and the area metered using spot metering in green."

    I had to search to find that.
