Question about Pentax *ist D Digital Camera
Just a minor question regarding the (my) istD LCD screen. I hadn't noticed this before (probably because I was concerned with other things), but lately I've noticed when I bring up "menu" on the istD LCD screen, some of the white color letters in the menu headings have either a faint reddish (and sometimes bluishish or greenish) tint to them. Only a single color to some of the letters, some remain white. It's even more pronounced if looking at the screen on an angle but still noticeable if looking head on. It doesn't escape me that these are of course the primary colors of an LCD screen. Maybe it's asways been this way and I didn't pay particular attention but just in case my sceen is changing, may I ask if others notice this on their istD LCD screen. Just look at the word "format". My "m" is reddish for example. It also may relate to what brightness setting one has set their LCD screen to. I just reset mine to it's minimum and I don't have my istD with my (on location) to recheck. Thanks!

Resolution on the LCD is rather "rough," but I think all these tiny screens are that way. Considering the "roughness" of the photos in playback, and their sharpness when viewed full on on a computer, the text is about up to as good as this screen can produce. Or, in other words, I'm see'in what your see'in as for text. I think it's just normal.
