E1 Viewing angle of the monitor


New Member
I have only just registered in this forum but I have checked through and do not think that I am covering old ground. If I am I do apologise.

I have an E-300 and a newly purchased E-1. The E-1 is fine except that to get the best view of pictures taken (when I look at the monitor), I have to tilt the lens of the camera about 45 deg downwards. With the E-300, looking directly at the monitor gives the best view. Has anyone else experienced this? I have improved things a bit by setting the monitor brightness to -7. The curious viewing angle remains the same but the image is a bit better.

Any comments? (Apart from "Why did you buy an E-1 when you already had an E-300?")
