Don't even know if this exists, but I'm looking for an LCD screen which can come as an accessory to my Nikon D70. My screen just doesn't show me enough detail to see if things are clear, even after I zoom in. Does anyone know/want to sell an LCD screen that could plug into the video out port or something like that so I could really see what I took when I took my pic. Or am I just dreaming and needing to buy the next model up?

You can always plug into your computer or laptop.

I'm looking for something I can view on-site. So carrying a laptop/computer is impractical.

Hey DJ, I haven't tried this, but apparently Nikon Capture allows you to view shots immediately after you take them, if your camera is connected to the PC via the USB cable.

That means you'll need some sort of computer or laptop though. There's also a wireless transmitter WT-3, but check for compatibility with your cam...


As an alternative - you can get portable DVD players with LCD screens these days that accept video inputs - so maybe connecting that to the video out of the cam might do the trick. Not sure regarding the amount of detail / resolution you'll get though, as video is usually under 800 x 600 pixels, but at least the screen will be bigger. Also, I'm not sure if the image will come up automatically after you take the shot - you might need to go into slideshow mode or something like that??

No probs... Big Grin

(should have done this earlier) moving this thread to a more appropriate forum.
