The reflection on the screen tells me you used a flash. The flash only lasts a very short time (at most 1/200 of a second), while the shutter was probably open for a much longer time (maybe 1/30 of a second). Since the frame of your CRT as well as the wall behind it do not emit light on their own, their appearance on the photo is mainly due to them ...

The main reason is that it is low powered. An raster LCD - color or not - requires much more power and most of them need a permanently on back-light. New OLED display do not need the back-light but still pull more power than a segment-based LCD which has much fewer electronic circuits. Most current top-plate LCDs mirror what is shown in the status line of ...

Segment LCD is a technology with the lowest power consumption of all available display technologies and those are more than visible on sunlight or any kind of strong light without any need for background lightning (except at night). Very useful for battery operated devices. It's also the cheapest possible display technology. They are also extremely robust. ...

It is not that the display switches to viewfinder after some seconds, it is that the camera goes to sleep mode. So you need to go to Menu, then look for the Auto Power off option, and choose the timeout value. You can switch it off entirely, which means that your camera would never go into sleep mode, you'd have to manually hit the OFF switch to switch the ...

The effect is created due to you rotating and the lines being drawn from top to bottom and your shutter was open long enough to capture all lines being emitted. How did the image get skewed that way? You're rotating clockwise and when the flash went, a line at the top of the lower quarter of the screen was being emitted. Then you captured the next line when ...

Has the diopter adjustment dial on the back of the viewfinder been moved? If everything was clear to your eyes before moving it will make everything in the viewfinder blurry to your eyes. The diopter adjustment wheel is pretty much in the same position across most major camera brands. It is provided to help users who wear glasses (or need to) to adjust the ...

Ideally, output sharpening is always dependent on the target medium. Optimal quality needs an image which was resized and sharpened for the intended viewing conditions. A high-res display needs a larger image than a low-res display, and a screen needs differnt sharpening than a print, all of which should, eg., be handled automatically by the Lightroom ...

If the back screen tilts up, you can use it from above too. I note that the old fashioned LCD on the top screen is readable in sunlight. It uses a backlight to read in the dark, but is read using ambient reflected light in daylight. The LCD screen is unreadable outside even in moderate sun. I further note that the backlight has "regressed" from an even ...

Look at a copy of the chromaticity diagram. Notice that along either the X or Y axis there are no colors. XYZ represents imaginary colors, not real colors. It is impossible to make a XYZ sensor. The origin of the XYZ space comes from the standard observer experiments. In combining the red, green and blue test colors to make the colors of the spectrum there ...

Currently XYZ filters are produced using thin film technology. It is not very cheap, and not very suitable for multi-megapixel sensors. It also results in somewhat spiky spectral response curves, especially problematic when the light source has spiky spectrum, like fluorescent tubes and some flashes. Yet another reason would be higher noise levels, as XYZ ...

Those LCD are probably already displaying every information you want/need, and probably more. Mine (EOS 7D) has : ISO Aperture Shutter speed White balance options Battery charge JPG and RAW size Exposition Metering mode Focus mode Number of pictures left I doubt displaying more would be any help and have a proof of it : even the main display won't show ...

Yes, most any notebook computer is capable of allowing you to use calibration products to adjust the output of the display. It's not GPU specific, though. Using a hardware/software solution such as Spyder or ColorMunki is dependent upon compatibility with the installed operating system. Just about any notebook computer running a Windows or Mac Operating ...

Do BOTH Why not do both? Print your name in the appropriate place using an attractive typeface such as Caslon, roman style, in medium weight on the type layer of your image-processing software. To get the effect you want you might even print on over-size stock to allow the name to lie comfortably on the L R/H corner of the border. Then, scrawl your ...

Check that the viewfinder eyepiece is clean, and that its diopter adjustment wheel is adjusted for most comfortable viewing. If poorly adjusted, it could be not just uncomfortable to focus your eyes, but impossible, leaving everything blurry. There could be possible physical damage to the camera, eg the mirror assembly or ground glass screen. Go to a ...

Baryta is a naturally occurring mineral technically known as barium sulfate. This snow white clay is used as a white pigment ingredient for paint. It is used as a brighter for art papers. Photo papers are coated with baryta to get increased whiteness and a higher reflectivity. We view photo prints by reflected light from a nearby light source. Light plays ...

The capture uses the actual transmission curves of the pigments used to make the filters. A raw file is that, with the implicit device "input color space". Turning that into meaningful values in some standard spqce is what raw converters do. You can calibrate using a a color checker and software from X-rite, or trust the manufacturer's profiles or Adobe's ...

You could try to frame them in a wide gray or white passepartout (or mat). This might look like a real image on a wall.
