Screen not clear/bright on the K200D? Is this normal?

Hey:

As mentioned in a previous thread, I was a large camera store today. Great opportunity to test and snap few pictures. I snapped a picture with a K200D and I looked at the rear LCD the picture seemed a bit dark, and the colors seemed off. I grabbed the K20D, snapped a few pictures, looked at the LCD, and the picture was clear and crisp. I turned up the brightness on the K200D and still not as bright and accurate as the K20D.

I tested the Nikon, Canons, and Olympus cameras and they were all clear, bright, and crisp.


So, does the K200d naturally have a darker LCD, or could it just be the display model? I'm thinking the K20D and K200D probably share the same LCD, right?


Is this important? To me it is. When I snap a photo, I like to look at it, or show others. I will probably stop at another store this weekend.

Thanks,
PJ

It might have been the camera settings in the store, or a bad unit. I haven't seen the K20D, but my K200D has a screen that's plenty bright enough to review the pic and show others.

Hi,
Another possibillity is that screen's brightness was adjusted.
Sorry - don't remember exact place in the manual where it describes the adjustment.

My K200D's screen is quite bright. The colors are more vivid than my friend's Olympus E520 and Sony A200 too. No complaints.
