2.8 and 3-inch LCD displays to remain mainstream for digicams

Posted on Sunday, August 26 2007 @ 19:13:22 CEST by

Taiwanese digital camera OEMs and ODMs believe 2.8" and 3" LCD displays for digital cameras will remain mainstream until the second half of 2008 when 3.5" may overtake their role:
Most mid-range and high-end digital camera offered by international brands, including Canon, Samsung and Casio, are equipped with screens of 2.8 or 3 inches, whereas screen sizes for entry-level models of about five megapixels generally range from 2.2 inches to 2.5 inches, the sources indicated.

As a 3.5-inch LCD screen costs 30-40% more than an LCD screen of 2.8-3 inches and consumes more power, 3.5-inch screens will generally not be adopted for a while, the sources pointed out.

However, the increasing addition of built-in functions of gaming, document browsing and map navigation to digital cameras is leading to demand for larger displays, the sources indicated. In addition, the production cost of small-sized TFT-LCD panels is dropping and power management technology is improving, the sources noted.
Within a couple of years we can even expect digital cameras with a 4.3-inch display.
