DSLRs mono green/grey top LCD panels - why no colour?
5 months ago

Why do modern upper spec DSLRs still have prehistoric mono (ie grey or green) LCD top panels?  It's 1990s technology.  Why not colour like every other modern consumer electronics hardware that uses display of some kind (eg car radio, car info displays, hands free interfaces, digital watches, front panels on fridge,  alarm systems, TV remotes, etc).
