Screen uh-oh

Rader sign

I tried new-Cam on an errand trip. And discovered with this outdoor shot that…um, the screen is black when viewed through my polarized sunglasses. Oops. Gonna take a while to get used to that (head tilt or push glasses down nose)…. Not sure why the decision was made to use a screen with this problem–it’s been a known problem for, what?, almost a decade.

Nice snap of interior decoration, however.

Crepe myrtle pink

Via my iPhone, here’s a crepe myrtle bloom (not the one in the first photo) closer-up.

    The screen is polarized to minimize glare as are your sunglasses. The problem is that they have the same angle of polarization. I encountered
    this problem with my older cell phone when I mounted it in my car to use
    Google Maps and then rotated it from a portrait orientation into a
    landscape orientation. My current phone uses an angle of 45°; I can
    mount it in either orientation. Some engineers are getting smarter, but
    others haven’t.

    Yeah, Herb, I’m with you—this is a known and straight-forward situation, and should have been avoided in our new-Cam.
