Black Spots on Touchscreen?

PostThu Apr 04, 2013 12:30 am

Hi everybody,

got my cam some days ago and its really a pleasure to work with. now i realised that i have something like "black spots" on my touchscreen. especially when i am filming lowlight situation i can see them. when i film at daylight or something i can not see them.
here is a picture of what i mean. i just want to know if something is not working with my touchscreen or if it is just a cosmetic thing.
the picture is not the best quality but i am sure you can see those black spots or whatever it is.

hope you can help me

thanks!

Looks like dark spots/blotches in the backlight to me.

I doubt it would. I'd contact Blackmagic Support. I don't think the blotches are normal or "within spec".
