ZEBRAS Zebras, are an important feature of professional camcorders which give a practical indication of exposure levels.  Zebras typically require a user setting in % and then a viewfinder overlay of black and white stripes indicate the parts of the image that match that exposure level.  70% is typically selected for exposure of Caucasian skin.  DSLRs do not have zebras.  Magic Lantern firmware can add Zebras overlay.
