Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video LCD brightness, part of Canon 60D Essential Training.
You can change the brightness of the LCD on the back of the camera.…This can make it easier to see in bright daylight; it can make it less obtrusive…in low light situations.…Go into the Menu, and go all the way over here to the second tool menu, and the…first item is LCD brightness.…I am going to go in here, and it gives me this fancy thing with all these shades of gray.…These are just references to let you see what's going to happen as you go…brighter and darker.…Notice this is white up here; black down here. As I go down a notch, my white has…gone kind of dingy, and all my other gray shades have followed.…
So I've just got that nice reference to be able to tell, here, full, all the way up;…I'm almost blowing out my second brightest grayscale.…So that's just there to give you an idea of how tones in your image might alter…as you adjust LCD brightness.…I wouldn't worry too much about this, because the image on your LCD screen is…never that color or contrast accurate anyway, because the camera amps up color…
