EOS 80D How to See Current Settings in the Viewfinder

Just purchased a used 80D and can't figure out how to turn on all the current camera setting to see them through the viewfinder?

The 80D has much less viewfinder information than a newer Mirrorless camera.

What are you not seeing that you think should be there?

I would make the suggestion to download the 80D manual and search for "viewfinder" in the manual.

You will find several different menu options that customize what you can display in the viewfinder.

ABSOLUTELY download the manual from Canon!  Read it over and over and over.

If you want to buy a printed version, used camera dealers like <UsedPhotoPro.com> sell used ones. EBay has copies that are printed by sellers in 8-1/2 x 11.  It can get expensive and difficult to print it yourself. Go for an actual factory manual. It's a smaller size that is more portable. Having a camera like yours makes having the manual a MUST.
