View finder/screen confusion?

    Hi - just received the Z6 having sold off all my MFT stuff and my D800 and I'm confused about using the screen/monitor and view finder. When I am using the Automatic Display Switch function I can use either but once I bring the screen near to my body to take a shot using the viewfinder then the screen switches off I assume it has triggered the sensor in the eyepiece? When I then move the camera away from myself it does not automatically switch back and I cant review the images on the monitor without having to press the button on the side of the eyepiece a further three times. I've searched through the manual and online and cant find out what I'm doing wrong - I'm almost at the point of giving up in frustration - hope someone can help I suspect its something obvious!!!

    I use the prioritize viewfinder setting
  3. Hit the button on the left side of the viewfinder to toggle those settings. I'm new to the Z6 too (just got it this week, my first Nikon!). I actually like 'Prioritize Viewfinder' to save a bit of battery life. If I want to see the last shot, I just hit Play button in the rear top left.
