Now for something lighthearted

Post what your favourite colour scheme is!

I have it set to 1 (default), but change to 2 (dark grey) if I'm shooting in low light.

Edit: You can tick multiple choices.

I have it set to red -- forgot its number -- for use in low light conditions. Red light only triggers one type of cone cell in the retina and leaves the others unaffected, particularly rod cells, so it will have little effect on night vision. I have no need for bright light sources right in front of my face.

Submarine lighting suddenly makes sense.

Choice of colours? Is this a K5ii feature? How do you set it?

A poll option of "I have no idea what you are taking about!" would be good.

Press MENU, scroll to Setup (wrench menu) page 1, scroll down to LCD Display and press OK. At least the K-50 has this feature, presumably other models have it too.
