Colours on K-1's display don't match to the colours on PC's monitor

Colours on the display of my K-1 are great! However, when I open out of camera jpegs on my PC, they look very dull in comparison. Images on the display are not only more saturated but also have much better tone gradation. (I shoot in "Bright" profile.) I calibrated my ips-monitor but it didn't help. Has anyone had the same experience?

I too have noticed some anomalies. My observations have been to do with brightness. The image might look OK on the camera LCD but under exposed on the computer screen. I will have to play a bit more to see if it is a user error.

You need to understand "color management". Google this and read a couple of days to understand.
Then take action if you care.
