Fine Tuning Your LCD Monitor
How many times have you looked at the photos on your computer and thought that they looked darker than what your camera's LCD displayed?
Your camera LCD screen is usually set brighter than the actual exposure. You can adjust the cameras LCD brightness in the camera to better match the exposure you photographed.
I find that in most cases you need to set the cameras LCD brightness to -1 for a more accurate display.
