A quick tip if you are using a LCD view finder (like the Z-Finder)

Reviewing the clips I did last Monday, I realized the exposure was not what I remember seeing on the LCD while shooting. After some thinking, I figured it out: I used to set the LCD brightness level to auto.  Since I was shooting outside, the ambient light sensor was calibrating the LCD brightness as if it was used in bright conditions while in fact I was looking at the LCD in a dark environment (the Z-finder).

The solution was, of course, to set the LCD brightness manually (first option in the second yellow menu) to a lower level. Pretty obvious tip but I guess (and hope) that I am not the only person who forgot about this!
