OLED panels are subject to burn in/ image retention if you leave the same image/ guideline/ frame line on an OLED panel for an extended period of time. That image/guideline/ frame line can end up being burnt in to the panel (meaning that it will stay on the image permanently).
To help avoid this you should try not to leave the same exact thing on your screen for an extended period of time. Turning off your guides every few hours for 10-15 minutes or running video on the monitor overnight, when you are not using it, can be a good way to help avoid this. (almost like a screen saver) Here is a good video that we use for this:
OLED Burn In / Image Retention is not covered by warranty so please be attentive and aware of this potential possibility and try to guard against it.

Sunspots are white looking circles that are almost always bigger then just one pixel, sometimes if you feel the LCD screen you can even feel a lump or burn spot on the actual screen. These occur when the sun is allowed to shine through the magnifying portion of the DP4 Viewfinder. When the sun shines through that it is intensified and can burn the screen. In strong sunlight this can happen in only a few seconds. That is why we always recommend either lifting the viewfinder when not in use or covering the eye hole with either a lens cap or anything that is convenient when not in use. We can repair your DP4 but there is a cost for this type of repair the cost is 160 dollars plus shipping. If you would like to set up the repair please send an email to email@example.com and we will set up a Return Authorization for you.
