Not really sure what you mean Steve.

All lCD screens have a protective glass or plastic plate dont they?

between the lcd and the user im sure there should be a sheet of glass so the plastic surface of the LCD screen is covered and protected. mine hasnt got any glass so if you press the screen lightly it deforms i was sure my old one did have it.

more sense?

Now i understand. No it does not come with a protective sheet glass other then what the LCD already has. most cameras do not have any protection for the LCD but you can buy protective plastic covers.

Tony

has your LCD got a glass cover on it then? mines plastic. like i say if you press on it lightly it deforms as a lcdmonitor would do.

for some reason im just convinced it had a glass screen not plastic

Thanks

Hi Steve

Mine's just as you are describing, if you press on it the colours change ang image deforms,there shurly is no glass covering the lcd as it would break. i shurely will try to avoid doing this again.

Maybe you never pressed against your other camera LCd so you could not have noticed this?

bye

No glass on mine either .... pretty tough plastic though. If you press on it ...it does distort!

Cheers, KK

It must be very fine plastic....sorry but i am not keen on putting pressure on it to see if it distorts

no probs guys i wouldnt want you to damage it! just wanted to check thats all i dont know where i got the notion it was glass!

on a side note i have now got back from dorset (as you may of guessed) lots of good piccies which i will post soon, however i noticed that the pictures are quite dark... and the camera was using some immense shutter speeds. im talking dull and overcast full zoom and getting shutter speeds of more than 1/500 with pretty high f numbers.

see attached and you will see what i mean. full 10x zoom 1/700 shutter and f4.4 this is in ext mode but letting the camera sort everything out. exp comp was 0.0

the pic seems quite dark and perhaps needs a step or 2 of exp comp. what do you think? think the cam is getting it a little wrong?

Thanks

Steve
