    Hello all,

    I've been messing around with my E-P2 indoors with really bad low lighting and noticed that the LCD is not clear. I can see streaks of blue and orange going down the LCD screen. When I activate the menu screen the LCD is clear and crisp. This is normal due to the low lighting correct? My point of shoot never had this issue and since I never really tested one of these camera in person I am unsure what I should expect.

    Thank you.

    That sounds quite normal - in very low light, the EVF becomes a night vision finder without the green screen effect :wink: you're seeing noise due to the electronic amplification of what little light there is in the scene.

    Could you lock focus?

    Cheers

    Yes, I can lock focus and the pictures that I take comes out just fine. I am asking because I bought the camera second hand and didn't notice this until I was shooting indoors.

    Thank you Brian =)
