Display

Average Display Diagonal

At 3 inches, the EX-ZR1000 has a relatively average display diagonal compared to most of the other cameras of this age and type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3" screen cameras currently available including the Olympus PEN E-PM2 (£392.64) which has better reviews.

If this digital camera display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the D4 (£4,225) (3.2" and higher rated), or the D4S (£3,379.99) (3.2" and higher rated) both from Nikon or the Leica T (£359) (3.7" and higher rated).
