Default remote lcd screen.

here may be my million dollar idea ( maybe not, but a good question anyway): does anyone know if there is a remote lcd screen i can buy (maybe the size of the digital video ones, 3"X4") that i can hook up to my video out on my olympus c3000? I have found a million applications for something like that.

whattayathink??? :

Check out the portable TVs at your local electronic shop. I have seen posts where people have used these for just the purpose you describe.

geof:

peaked my interest. Richard Howes idea of using the tv out was brillient.
found this for you
http://www.pyleaudio.com/plvw56gm.htm This is a 5" lcd with a/v input $170. A bit steep perhaps but it has 74 build in video games while you are waiting for the moose or whatever to appear. 12v can run off car battery while waiting.

thanks guys! i will experiment with remote viewing: i am going to set my olympus c3000 outside my apt pointing at the street, hooked up to my laptop. with the remote provided with the camera, i want to try and shoot at specific times from the coomfort of the warm interior.
I can see good use for this on animal and bird photography, extreme weather and awkward locations (like attached to the outside of an aircraft, or places a person cannot fit) etc.
The possibilities are endless.....
