In some situations I want to use the Liveview display of my Canon EOS 1100D (USA: Rebel T3, Japan: Kiss X50) and not the viewfinder. But the display switches automatically to viewfinder after some seconds. How to turn this automatic switching off?


It is not that the display switches to viewfinder after some seconds, it is that the camera goes to sleep mode.

So you need to go to Menu, then look for the Auto Power off option, and choose the timeout value. You can switch it off entirely, which means that your camera would never go into sleep mode, you'd have to manually hit the OFF switch to switch the camera off.
