    In some occasion, and at a very instantaneous moment, I notice that
    the LCD has a slightly pinkish tint when you click the shutter button.
    Is this normal ? The result is perfectly normal, and therefore only
    showing in the LCD screen.
    Thanks for info

  2. When I take a photo the preview goes off, leaving a black screen. Do you
    mean during preview or review?

    The screen has an anti-reflect coating on that can look pinkish in some
    light, but only really noticeable when it is off, such as when taking a

    Thanks Rich:
    It happens occasionally just a fraction of a second after you press
    the button. I could not recall if the LCD screen actually went black/
    blank.. I don't think that happens. I know there is an option to keep
    blank LCD to safe battery power. But, I cannot remember if it went
    blank momentarily when you shoot a photo.
    I was so used to an SLR camera,that if I use the zoom, the viewfinder
    will reflect the changes. But as this is a "range finder" camera, it
    did not happen. However, i am trying to find out if this is the case
    on my old Lumix/Panasonic. Somehow I am so used to the see the picture
    on the eye piece changes as you zoom in or out... but I guess this
    never happens on a "range finder" or "point and shoot" digital camera?
    Anyway... thanks for the info

  4. It has to as the sensor has to switch from low quality live video preview mode
    to high quality still capture mode, giving no image to preview for half a
    second or so.

    I have never seen it go pink as it blanks for capture but it is possible that
    the LCD may change colour slightly when switching on and off.
    The G7 is not a rangefinder as such; it is an autofocus compact.

    On my G7 the optical viewfinder zooms with the lens. If yours doesn't then
    there must be a fault.
