Default CoolPix 4300 LCD


I had a chance to compare CoolPix 4300 LCD with Olympus C-3040Z LCD at Rolling Stones Concert in Toronto.

The results:
Olympus C-3040Z: The image on LCD look very good from any direction (~170 degree).
CoolPix 4300: LCD image look good only at +/- 20 degree. From the higher angle the image become inverted.

It was very difficult to use the camera when you are shooting above the public heads.

In comparison Olympus C-3040Z performed very well in the same conditions.

The positive difference I noticed is the speed I can scroll the images on CoolPix 4300. It is almost 2-3 times better, then C-3040Z (with very similar file sizes).

The shooting time between the images (saving time) is also about 2-3 times quicker for CoolPix 4300 (with very similar file sizes).

May be this effect is due to Lexar 40x 256MB Card I used with CoolPix 4300.
