Is Horizontal Noise On The LCD Normal?

I am the (almost) happy owner of a new c100. But I'm a bit concerned about the LCD screen. When I have it set to "bright" horizontal lines appear on the screen, giving the appearance of a dirty pattern over the top of the screen. It's particularly visible on plain walls. And it's just the screen (not the recorded image).

I just wanted to know if this is normal or not before I drive three hours to get a replacement.

I apologize to those of you who may have read this on another forum... Hoping to get any other opinions (yes or no) before I spend my day in the car when I should be doing prep work for shoots I have all next week. ;-)

Thank you for your time.

Look at the footage on a PC/MAC/Monitor/TV, the camera LCD is not an accurate representation of the footage. Let us know if you still see these lines when you do.

Thanks for the reply.

The lines definitely aren't on the footage, but it makes it hard to focus using the screen when there is a bunch of fixed pattern noise all over it.

Does anyone else see this when their LCDs are set to "bright"?

In my C100 also.
Guessing its just how the lcd is made?
Only found out at my last shoot a few weeks ago at a dark venue.... it is a bit dissapointing.

Solid grafic menu subjects (with unnatural edges and repeatting parts) are not a good sample for the quality test of LCD screen. Try shot some test patterns with camera and look for problems.

Re: Is Horizontal Noise On The LCD Normal?

I'd say it's worth getting checked by Canon - less than an hour away from you in Elstree.

The LCD can occasionally flicker mid-shot, which can be disconcerting, but what you're describing sounds unusual to me.

I would question why you're setting the LCD to "bright" though.
