Default K10D LCD Monitor - picture view 'over exposed' ?

Lately I note that the pictures on my LCD monitor seem overexposed, although the same, actual pictures when transferred to the computer, are well exposed...no problem at all.

I wonder if there is an adjustment I can make to the LCD monitor or why this 'over exposure' seems to be taking place in the LCD ?

The camera in question is my K10D.

I can't remember which camera you have, but I know my K100 and the K20 both have a control in the menu that adjusts the brightness of the display. I can't remember what it's called right now. Mine usually appear dark on my LCD and just fine on my computer. I should adjust it, but know that's what happens.

Patty, thanks for reminding me to ID the camera...can't believe that I forgot to do so.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will check out my manual and try to adjust.

I went to LCD under custom function...with my K10D all I can do is turn off or on...re:illumination.

In the Setup Menu, Brightness Level (pg. 195 in your manual), there is a scale on which you can adjust the brightness of the LCD panel.

In ther K10D, select the Set-up tab from the menu and go to the second screen where you will find an option for Brightness Level that can be adjusted as desired.

P.195 it is ! Thank you very much. I tried it, it worked. I have read the manual, but the K10D is a very complicated, albeit a camera that can do many things.

I think I should probably re-read it to re-fresh my aging mind.

I don't worry about brightness of the LCD camera screen too much. As long as the histograms show the image exposure is OK, I'll save it for a later look on my computer.
