Inaccuracy of lcd


Active Member
Has anyone else discovered that the image appears much brighter in the lcd of the digital rebel (300d) than it really is? I must always check the histogram to know whether my exposure is right.

Hi Mary Lou, yes, the LCD should not be used for proofing your images. I used to get inaccurate exposures if I relied on the LCD only. Remember, the histrogram is your friend!!



> Could someone on the forum pls point us in the direction of a Web article that really explains how to read and utilize the histogram to obtain good results. If there is no Web article available, then if someone could recommend a good book on the subject, that would also be great. T H A N K S
