samsung's 3in 640 x 480 digital camera lcd

Samsung today said it has developed the world's first 3in 640 x 480 LCD panel for digital cameras. DSC support means it's capable of connecting using the ITU-R601 standard, a 30Hz system chosen by camera makers even though, in Samsung's words, it's "incompatible with LCDs, which normally run at 60Hz". Makes you wonder how camera makers have coped to date. Whatever, Samsung said its 3in screen has contrast ratio of 350:1, can show 260,000 colours and has a brightness of 300cdpm². It expects to put the screen into production in H1 2007. ®
