Need help finding digital camera w bigger viewscreen
 
:wink: I'm having a hard time finding a digital camera with color viewscreen between 3.5"-7" to take pictures and show them to my customers without connecting to a computer. I'm using a hand held pc because big tools like a projector and laptop are almost impossible to carry daily in my businness.

No, sorry there is no such thing. LCD's use lots of battery power and this would be counter productive.

You are much better off using a small notebook computer - maybe something like an HP Jornada with a PCMCIA port and an ATA Type II adapter to put your flash card in.

Take a look at a thread I posted in the tips&tricks forum regarding remote LCDs. That might be what you need.

Well, there's now projectors that can fit in the palm of a baseball glove.

Another way around it is to use the camera's video out to feed into a TV, or if the TV doesn't have video in but has a VCR use the VCR's video in.

budget camera with AV out...
 
I'm not too familiar with other brands, but all of the Olympus come with A/V out jack and a cord to connect them directly to a TV. You should be able to pick up a D-510 or D-520 (2MP, 3x zoom) for about $200.
