635 LCD Color Question


New member
Hello, I'm not terribly familar with the various types of LCDs available, so I have a quick question. Since there are lifespan issues on the backlighting of the blue model, I'd like to know whether the display is visible when the backlighting is off. I'm guessing this isn't the case, as I can't seem to find any photos on the site, but figured I'd check anyway.

If the display is "negative mode" (which the "blue" ones are) then they are pretty much unreadable without the backlight on.

If you can arrange to have the backlight go off after a few minutes of inactivity (like CC2 now does) then the lifetime is probably not an issue.
