Viewing The Camera’s LCD — Accuracy and Presbyopia

Last updated 2011-12-10 - Send Feedback
Related: gear, presbyopia

Viewing your camera’s LCD screen has never been easier with some great devices out there.

What’s the problem? Nothing if you have 20/20 vision and the eyes of a 20 year old. But seeing what’s on the LCD screen can be a challenge in many scenarios:

  • Bright light can make it very difficult to see what’s on the screen;
  • Evaluating color, contrast and brightness can be very difficult with extraneous light;
  • Anyone 40+ years old will appreciate that presbyopia is a steadily-worsening issue. Arm’s length might not be far enough, and as the screen moves away details are harder to discern;
  • Less than 20/20 vision can make it hard to see fine details on the LCD screen;
  • Achieving perfect focus in Live View mode means help is needed to see the nuances;
  • Holding the camera at arm’s length or so is simply not viable for video.
  • Shooting via the LCD can sometimes be a powerful tool for composition.
