Small size LCD screen

Hi everybody,

At this moment I have a Sony TRV20, with a 3,5" LCD screen.

I want to know, if there are people who first used a 3,5" LCD screen, and then bought a cam with a smaller screen. What do you think about that smaller screen.

Because I wear glasses I hate to use viewfinder, because it's very uncomfortable with you glasses against a viewfinder.

I hope people can give me some advice

Gabriel

Hi gabriel, I haven't used a cam with the larger LCD screen although I did have a go of the Sony 950. I actually think it doesn't make much of a difference and am very happy with my XM2(GL2 US). Also woth noting is that the XM2 comes with a large eye cup as well "when recording in bright surroundings or when wearing glasses" not sure how good it is haven't needed to use it yet but it's pretty big.

I have 3.8" LCDs on my DVL9500s, and 2.5" LCDs on my MX300s. I prefer the smaller LCD, though. Why? Because the 2.5" LCD has a way higher resolution. But now, with some of the new cams, you get even higher resolution in a 3.5" LCD!
