Problem with the front screen

Hi there!

 

I've just received my GoPro Hero 8 black, and I've noticed that there's something wrong with the screen in the front of the camera...

If I turn the camera a little, I see something that seems to be 'burnt' inside the screen, but It's something that only happens if I turn the camera, not if I look at it from the front.

 

Do you think this is normal?

 

Thx in advance.

Re: Problem with the front screen

Yes, this is completely normal.  When you turn the camera you're just adjusting how the light hits the LCD display and the LCD is causing slight light seperation hence the prism effect.
