Question for those with the R5 already...

I've always taken issue with the top LCD display on the first version of the EOS R in that I don't like the black background / white lettering. It's just way harder for me to see.

My question is, I've seen a few photos and videos around with it inverted back to a white background, with black lettering. Is this an option you can select so it's always like it as it's easier to see without illuminating it?

It is still a black background with white lettering. I see no option to change this.

However I did notice that when I turn on the backlight, it changes to black letters with a white background, with the backlight. So maybe that's what you saw.

Maybe, just seems odd they did that for just the photo. I wish there was more control over it.
