I am a novice, I have a question regarding the LCD screen. I took some nice pics at least they looked very good on the LCD screen on the camera. When I transferred them to the computer they did not looks so good some looked darker and the lighting was off as compared to the LCD on the camera.

Now I'm questioning my lighting knowledge (aperture/shutter speed). Is the LCD on the camera accurate or do I go by how they appear on the computer?

Thanks,

Novice Ned

The lcd can be made bright or dim and has nothing to do with your actual photo exposure. I would suggest using the histogram to watch your exposure, it is the only real tool you have in camera to gauge exposure.

I believe the image shown on the back screen is a JPEG version of what was just shot. So if you are shooting RAW pictures what you see on your computer screen will be unprocessed uncorrected images. I shoot both JPEG and RAW as I am terrible at processing so save the RAWS for the future if my skills ever developed. Several of the in camera settings affect the JPEG images.

Raw files are not viewable, they are always processed, whether in-camera by Canon's software or DPP for the raw, or LR. You are always seeing some form of a processed raw when viewing on any device.

The question here though is that the LCD brightness is obviously set pretty high giving a false impression of the actual exposure. The LCD should not be used for gauging exposure. In fact, I usually set my LCD a bit lower anyways to make sure, but the histogram is the only way in-camera to measure your exposure.

That histogram does, however, reflect the JPG result, so picture styles, etc all can have an impact on that histogram, but it is still the only real tool to use for exposure, the LCD isn't.

I have the brightness on mine set at zero.....that is, in the center. I also use a calibrated monitor at home and my files look pretty much as I see them in the field.

Is your monitor calibrated? Might make a difference. Seems to for me.
