LCD screens, viewable outside?

by a4phantom / April 11, 2005 3:00 AM PDT

Are there better and worse quality LCD screens as far as taking pictures in bright sunlight? Or are they all pretty bad? I'm returning my Ex-Z50 because I can barely see a thing when the sun's bright, I don't remember that being such a problem with the Ex-M2. If screen quality runs by manufacturer, who's been doing well? How's Nikon?

Not your answer, but that's why the viewfinder is so

Yeah, but on ultracompacts they're tiny or absent

And I need an ultracompact for travel in lawless areas. But your point is well taken, and that's why I'm wondering if I can expect a Nikon without a view finder (the Coolpix S1) to have a usable-in-daylight screen.
