LCD display issue

Hi All,

My K-r is 5 months old and very sparingly used, I've recently upgraded firmware to 1.12 after that when viewing pics on LCD its showing flickering yellows and reds,
I copied the pics to PC they seems to be fine, I guess its issue with LCD, Just wanted to check in the forum and see if anyone has experienced this issue, and what are my options? do I need send it to manufacturer since its still under warranty. your help is greatly appreciated.

But I do like this camera its my first DSLr I love it and keeps me different from all the folks carrying niks/cans

Have a great day!!
LL

Your pics are fine, and so is your camera. You have an option called "Overlay Bright/Dark Area" turned on, which shows you parts of the pic that are over or under exposed. You can turn it off in the menu, or you can use it to advantage, to see at a glance when a shot isn't optimally exposed.

It's common for small bits, say highlights off chrome trim on a car, to be flashing, but if large portions of the shot are flashing, you might want to change the exposure and try again.

Oh, and welcome to the forum!

Nope, you're in the right place, and 1.12 is the current one. @Trapezoid645 is thinking of the K-5 firmware, which is now up to 1.13.
