    Ok, so now that I've had the camera for a while, I'm finding I'm underexposing some of my shots. I typically shoot in A priority, and use the verticle thumb wheel for exposure compensation. I'm finding if I shoot the picture with no compensation during the day in moderate to bright sunlight, the picture on the LCD looks over exposed. So then I'll drop the exposure a .3 or .7 stop. But then when I look at it on the computer, its obviously underexposed. Now, in digital its easier to bring up a picture if its underexposed a little. I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this, or if they use other picture settings instead.

    I just got started with the EP-1, but I have learned not to trust the LCD. I use the histogram and the blinking highlights to check exposure...

    I don't find the LCD a problem. Possibly you have changed the LCD brightness or need to.

    I do find that while the shots I take look great on a monitor or TV, they print out a little lighter than I would like. I do so little printing that I haven't bothered to look into this.
