Re: LCD screen visibility problem in underexposed shots

The screen on a digital camera is there to help you frame and expose, it does not represent reality or the quality of the final image. You have to know what you are doing, and of course do a lot of educated guess work.

The screen is a reference, same as the battery meter. The guy taking the shot is responsible for taking the shot and charging the battery, whether the camera has a battery indicator or not.

For a while I used a camera with no backlight, meaning the screen was almost useless. It had a tiny OVF, that was good. It was frustrating to change settings, but I still took nice pictures with it. Not an issue.
