Average Display Diagonal

The Vivitar T135 has a fairly standard display diagonal (2.7 inches) compared to most of the other low megapixel digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as this camera.

We compared all the other 2.7" screen cameras to this camera and we think because of their better review scores, the EOS 1100D - Rebel T3, and the 1100D + EF-S 18-55 IS II both from Canon are also worth considering.

If this Vivitar digital camera display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Panasonic LUMIX GF3K (3" and higher rated), the Nikon Coolpix P340 (3" and higher rated), or the Fujifilm XQ2 (3" and higher rated).
