Hi Woodmaster100,


According to the manual, the grid lines are not available in Auto mode. If you go into the P mode, you should be able to access the grid lines option from the menu. This will be near the end of the list. 


Hopefully this answers your qauestion.

Re: Grid line display

thanks for the two replies, I have hit the up arrow button over hundred times and all it does is switch from auto mode to miniature mode. I have not seen the LIvE display yet
