I just received an D800e and did some initial tests- love what I am getting, but the camera lcd screen colors are significantly off and somewhat horrid compared to the file viewed on my computer. I am going to test again and see if using the neutral mode will improve this. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Thanks,

Doug

We have had a few questions about this matter - Nikon's own answer was that the D800 (and D4) LCD does display colours with a slightly more green colour tinge than previous cameras, but that this is actually more accurate.

Either way, if you're happy with how things look on your computer, don't adjust the camera's Picture Control. It might alter how the LCD looks, but the actual images will be worse.

Wait a little bit. In couple weeks of using the back LCD will return to norm, with a bit low contrast, what is perfect for me, personally. I've no explanations to this phenomenon, but took it as it is. Dimitri.
