Here are some screen test pictures that I have taken of my touch. This time I have a better camera unlike yesterday :)

Let me know if you see any issues?

All looks good to me. It would be interesting to see some of those shots on another iPod though.

Great screenshots. Can you post the link on thoughtsgonecrazy.net/touch-report.php.

Also soon I'll add ability to add and compare pics. Thanks

I have a question. Does it only happen on videos or do you see it on the black home screen too?

FINALLY! Someone with PROOF that their iPod is flawless. What do you have to say to that! (All those people who said it was a perception problem for those who could not see it!)

I say how long did it take you to find the exact precise angle to view the screen at.

I don't think videos in that quality can look any better. When I look at my prepared videos I'm going to put on the touch, they look like that

I have a theory. I bet it's a software problem because if it were a screen issue, you wouldn't ONLY see the problem in the black, you would see equally for every color if it were a viewing angle problem or polarizing problem. It seems like it could be some sort of core-image or core-video problem. Does it happen at the HOME screen? If it does not happen on the home screen, then it's probably a software problem.

In the Depths of the SLC!
Everything looks legit to me, thanks for proving the negative ones wrong, don't be sooo pessimestic! I'm one of the more optimistic ones around here and I know my ipod will be flawless, if not then I will rain down on Apple's parade! If they don't gimme a new one, I will sit on the floor and scream!

The default contrast is way too high. There is no visible detail in the dark face shadows or on the shirts or the tyre on the bus for instance. It's just solid black. (I personaly suspect that's the source of the 'negatives', it's so solid black it turns the glossy glass above it into a mirror, but I'm no expert).

How do they preset default contrast levels on LCD screens that otherwise have no contrast controls? Is it in firmware? System software? If so, I'm thinking it might be easily fixed.

If it's hardware, methinks I'll be postponing my pre-order (hahahaa ha haa haaa!! Did I just say pre-order?? Ha ha HA! Funny!) before it's due to ship by October 8, until they release rev2.

Edit: I may have been describing the photographer's shadows across the screen itself, not the actual image, so I'm deleting what I just wrote in this post.

You can see the negative effect in the second image of the building exploding. At the edge of the explosion is an area of good solid black, but the large area of black in the top right corner surrounding it has gone negative. You can see the effect quite clearly.

You can also see it with the guy in the van. The top of his hair and the van roof interior disappears into negative black.

I guess people see things differentlt, so just my own observations. Feel free to disagree, just as I'm doing.
Compare to this thread - https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/355803/. I assume the pics by OP here are at a top-down/zero-degree viewing angle. They definitely aren't inverted like in the 2nd thread I just mentioned.

QUESTION for the OP - did those screenshots come from a YouTube video? Which one? Want to test my own.

that looks more like a reflection or glare to me.. like if you look at the top right corner of the explosion, just beyond that its black and I think thats the edge of his hand, beyond that is reflection/glare..could be wrong though

Just so you know, you are seeing shadows of my hand in there, especially within the black area of the explosion. The "darker" parts of the black out edge of the explosion is my hand/fingers.

Sorry, I have overhead fluorescent lights here in the office.

I put that down to camera/lighting issues, given that the poster reckoned the picture was OK.

Edit: looking at the youtube video it looks like that on there too.. so it's just a poor source.

That was also not the best source to test as it seemed to be the Bootleg of Die Hard 3 that's been floating around the Net. Can you do the same test with an encoded DVD that you own.

Good point. A very dark movie with lots of detail in the shadows would be the best test. Something like the first Batman movie.

Don't even need the movie, just a still shot from it as I've read the effect is on photos too.

Nice pics! I hope that when my touch arrives (sometime in october...grrrr) that it looks like that!
