    Lately, I've noticed that my lcd screen seems to be applying some sort of brightening or exposure correction to the pics.

    They all look fantastic on the LCD, which I then use to base my bracketing around, but when I get to ACR, everything is waaaay under exposed and f-ed up.

    I am in class right now, so I don't have my manual.

    anyone know whats happening?

    thanks! :x:

    so the screen brightness is giving me false exposure compensation?


    Interesting.

    I'll give it a shot.

    Or I can stop cheating and using the LCD for exposure and use the numbers...

    Yeah, I realize that, but it's too easy to cheat and look at the pic and say 'oh, that's overexposed... I'll stop down....' - then you get back and open the pics and everythings super dark... :squint:

    1200 - the lesson of this story is to use your lcd for framing and composition purposes only.
