Screen Protector for Portable Devices Estimated Price: Under $10.00.
The original use was for hand held portable gaming system however you can use this on digital camera LCD screens as well.
You can't keep your pictures sharp if you can't see the screen. Protect your Olympus digital camera with a Screen Protector.
The Screen Protector keeps your digital camera clean and protects against scratches. The anti glare coating improves visibility in direct sunlight, so you can take your pictures of the
great outdoors. A polish cloth is included to keep your gear looking good.
You can purchase this at any retail such as Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target.... they can be located next to the hand held portable gaming systems in the electronic department.

Camera problem I have a Kodak Easyshare c190 camera and i went to the beach and you can not see ANYTHING thru the viewfinder. I tried desperately to turn every way and covering all around it but just could...


Viewing the screen in bright sun is a problem for 99% of point and shoot cameras. 1% still have an optical viewfinder you can look through to frame the picture. Also, looking at the screen with polarized sun glasses makes the problem worse. There's no solution except to upgrade to a DSLR camera.

I have a fugi fine pix, when using it in bright sun light i cant see anything


Geofchaam,
You could be experiencing one of two issues:
1) You are having a difficulty viewing the image on the back of the camera (not the view finder). This is common on cameras out in the sun, try cupping your spare hand over the screen to cast a shadow on the screen.
2) You cannot view anything in the view finder. Since the view finder has its own tiny LCD display inside of it, it is displaying what image the camera will take if you press the shutter release. I would double check to see if the camera is set correctly for shooting in bright sunlight (check your owners manual, or set the camera to Automatic), and if there is a difference between what you're seeing in the viewfinder, and what images the camera is taking, consider calling Fuji, as it sounds like a hardware issue.

Why can't i see what i am taking a picture of by the lcd screen?


That feature is called "Live View". The K100D camera does not support that feature.

How to install new lcd screen


Installing a new LCD is fairly easy in this model.
#1 Remove two bottom screws
#2 Remove four side screws
#3 Slide off silver side panel on the left Front side of the camera
#4 Carefully remove front cover (careful to pry off from the top)
#5 Flip over front cover and release the power panels ribbon cable from the system board
#6 Flip over plastic protector
#7 Remove Back Cover from LCD side
#8 The LCD is being held by 3 ribbon cables.
(This next step should be done very carefully - damage can occur if it is done incorrectly)
#9 Release the middle ribbon cable by carefully flipping up the black portion of the clamp.
Equal pressure should be applied to the full black portion when attempting to flip open.
Do not use excessive force.
#10 Release remaining cables and remove LCD.

To assemble just reverse the steps. We have color diagrams available just ask.

Thank you

New Kodak M1033 cannot see image on LCD in sunlight


This is a common problem with all LCD screens without anti-reflective coatings.This is normal. Increase the brightness of LCD while shooting in the sun. Internal memory normally takes only a few images. This is normal. Use a memory card to shoot more images.

Flaw on LCD monitor


This is normal. It may be distracting, but what it is is light. If you notice, it happens when there are bright spots, lights, reflections. These distortions will show up in video so try to avoid aiming at bright things while in video mode. Another type of flicker will happen mostly in florescent light.

Before CCD image sensors, video camera used tubes and aiming them at the sun or bright objects would burn the tubes permanently so cameras have come a long way, but by the nature of cameras being devices that record light, it is hard to eliminate that effect altogether (similar to red eye...just can't be a perfect science due to human nature of having blood vessels in the back of their eyes that when bright light is shined into them, their pupils open and the red color is reflected and shows up as red eye...this is best fixed in a photo editing program. It is hard to totally prevent, but changing angles and not shooting directly head on at subject helps). But I digress...

If it is really distracting for you, here is the one thing I found helpful; recompose the shot slightly by moving yourself, the camera, the angle (doesn't have to be dramatically different, but try to have the sun or light source behind the camera). As you move around, continue to push the shutter halfway down (each time not continuously) to bring subject into focus (getting your green box or boxes that indicate proper focus). Sometimes the lines will disappear if you change your shot even very slightly.

Hope this Helps!

Can you shoot? battery might be low taking it to "save-power" mode. Try hitting "DISPLAY" to force the LCD screen to show.

The LCD screen is hard to see. What should I do?


If the LCD screen is too bright or too dark, adjust the LCD Brightness setting in the Setup Menu. If you are shooting photos outdoors in bright light, move the joystick to the icon showing the sun over shaowed area to turn on Outdoor mode and make the LCD screen easier to see in bright light.
