All DSLR cameras do have an LCD display.
But most are only used for displaying the menu and displaying photos you have taken.
SLR cameras have always given you a through-the-lens viewfinder.
When you use the viewfinder, you are actually looking through the lens of the camera.
Only a few DSLR cameras have a Live View LCD, where you can see the scene on the LCD before you take the photo.
Right now, I can only find four that have "live view" LCD:
The lowest price DSLR camera is the Nikon D40 (6 megapixels)
Now they have a D40X with 10 megapixels
The lowest price Canon camera is the EOS 400D/Digital Rebel XTi
I am a novice photographer who is looking to update my digital camera. My main uses would be:
1. Candid pictures of family, friends, and pets
2. Pictures of dogs participating in sporting events
I am looking for a camera that has a the ability to take quick pictures, instead of the 3 - 5 second delay that my current camera has (I miss several great shots because of the delay). I would prefer an LCD display, but I don't know much about SLR's and whether it's better to have a display or not.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
