Same camera, different LCD?

Same camera, different LCD?

Yesterday I bought my second X-H1. Immediately I copied the configuration from my first camera into the second one (using X-Acquire), whis is a really nice feature.

Nevertheless, after a few tests I have noticed that the image displayed in the LCD looks different on each camera. Displaying exactly the same RAF file in both cameras shows some noticiable variations in the tint of the image, I have had to configure one LCD at R:0 B:0 and the other one at R:1 B:1 to get a similar (but not identical) look.

(Fortunately, to my eye the EVF looks exactly the same in both cameras).

Do you think it is a normal sample variation? I would expect better consistency on the LCD component... Have any of you experienced something similar?

A non scientifical comparison, shot with my cell phone. Naked eye, the color differences between both LCD's are even bigger

Best regards

I got a similar problem when I sent my X-H1in to get a the screen replaced. The screen had a different color rendition when compared to the EVF. I guess it is a matter of color calibration.

Interesting to hear that. Did Fuji replace your LCD because of that?

Re: Same camera, different LCD?

LCDs are "off the shelf" components.  It may be that during the run of production, the supplier of the LCD may change.  Certainly the LCD batch or production run will change, even if the manufacturer does not.

Hopefully you can get the screens similar enough to work with.

Well the first screen, which was replaced had dead pixels. I noticed the new screen was not exactly matching the EVF after a few months. I'll be sending it to Fuji, as the X-H1 needs some other repairs and we'll see what they say.
