Frankly, I wouldnt give a care what size of LCD my next camera is, be it consumer or prosumer or DSLR.
Cos to me, bigger LCD equals shorter battery life.
I perfer to use the viewfinder. and past experience tells me that framing using LCD in sunny day is a problem, (which is why they sell LCD hoods...ugly looking things)
I would perfer a longer battery life, as I hate to have to carry spare batteries when i go shooting from dawn to dusk.
ahahh my viewfinder is another LCD. So i don't need LCD hoods. but seriously bigger LCD are indeed better to me. Review pics easier. changing batteries not really big prob since most photogs already carry a camera bag, an extra batt wun do much more damage or space.
just my thought, i love the 2" screen but it will not hurt me in any way if my camera LCD is any smaller than that, heck i have more cameras without an LCD screen and i still use them on a almost daily basis. They are called film cameras by the way.
cheers and do not be so bothered by it unless you are impaired by it, by all means go get yourself a 2 1/2" LCD screen, if you are still worried, i believe there are 3" or bigger screens on video recorders for your needs
probably wut Capty was talking about was point and shoot cameras. i noe must of u guys are pros and talking about pro cams; i took a walk ard sim lim just these few days and more n more cameras (consumers..) getting slim and LCDs wider. N looking at newer models made my ol'cam look very crappy
point is, i wudnt be surprice if 1.5 lcds (consumer.. again..) wud be 'kinda obsolete' towards the end of this year. probably if anyone out there whos buying a new PNS cam might need to considers this..
