Thread: Backlight

  1. #1

    Default Backlight

    Heard many saying that viewing photo taken on camera LCD isn't accurate as it is backlight. Suggestion was to view it on monitor, but most ppl today are also having LCD monitor. Aren't they having the same backlight issue.

    Is our camera LCD calibrated too to sRGB? Sorry for another noob question once again.

    I would think that photographs viewed on a monitor/LCD/projector would be more vibrant than an actual print. Perhaps the fact that on screen is additive color (3 primary colors RGB add together to form white) and on print is subtractive color (3 primary colors RYB add together to form black) makes the difference?

    But yeah, I would think it's the same issue on LCD or on monitor. The only possibility monitor is more accurate is it is able to reproduce a higher gamut/dynamic range than the LCD on-camera.
