Hi -

I have been experiencing something on the LCD monitor since the start of using the camera - namely, the strength of brightness when using the monitor halves in seconds. Is this to do with conserving energy or is it a possible problem?

Regards. Barr1e

Barrie,

Is this when you are viewing the shooting info on the LCD? If so, yes it does dim after a short while.

Hi Peter -

No, I was aware of that, thanks. It happens (not all the time) when viewing the images. It is not a problem to me per se but curious as to why it should occur.

Thanks again.
Off to bed now as another early morning beckons as the weather seems set fair here in the south.

Hi Barr1e, this is possibly brightness sensor in the camera dimming the screen. Check to see if the LCD brightness is set to AUTO.

Could it be this (taken from the Wrotniak E-3 Article (http://www.wrotniak.net/photo/43/e3-sett.html))

Monitor Brightness

In addition to setting the display brightness manually, there is also an Auto option here, using a small light receptor near the monitor to measure the ambient light and to adjust the display accordingly. This sounds like a good solution, but I found it a bit distracting: the display reacts to slight changes in camera orientation.

Adjust it to your liking; I'm fine with the default (zero) manual setting.
