Many pictures look good on the camera screen and very dark when viewed on the computer screen (while other pictures look about the same on both LCD and computer).
Anyone else experienced this problem?
What can be the cause of this difference?
Is there a solution?

I have the same problem ;

-indoor with flash : the bakground is darker than the LCD and lot of information is lost

-outdoor : when there is important contrast,some parts of thepicture are totally black !


Infactafter various tests, the pictures are all darker than as on LCD. To get the same image as on LCD, you have to boost the luminosity on a photo tool on PC as much as 50 % !!!

IS this problem known by CAsio ? Is there a firmware problem ?


Please help.

You can overcome this problem to some extent by modifying the "overlay brightness" setting for your graphics card.

For my ATI 8500LE :-

Right click Desktop - Properties - Settings - Advanced - Color

Increase the brightness for the overlay.

Other graphics cards may have different methods to adjust brightness.



An alternative method would be tocreate "colour profiles" which would adjust the observed colour according to the graphics card,monitor,printer and the software being used.

Yes, your suggestion solved my problem. Increasing the brightness of my monitor (using the monitor's controls) made the pictures look as they should.

Thanks.

It is probably because the camera increases the screen brightness in the dark. Otherwise it would be difficult to tell what you are going to shoot. If you really want the LCD to be as dark as on the computer, you may be able to disable the feature :?

hows your photoshop? You can adjust the levels on the picture or the brightness/contrast on that to lighten the image.
