Cameras with Front Screen

Updated on July 1, 2013

Compact Cameras with Front LCD Screen Make Self-Portraits Easier

If you love taking self-portraits, but hate the fact that you can't see the screen, there's now a solution - get a camera with a front screen. These dual-screen cameras still have a nice viewing screen on the rear so you can easily compose photos and review images, but they also have a second screen on the front, making it easy to see what the camera sees, even when you're holding it in front of you. If this sounds like a feature you need, read on to see the newest cameras with front screen.

      I had no idea these front screen cameras even existed! That looks like a great option too for people who always scream "let me see the picture!"

      These are a nice idea, but I really do love my Canon Powershot A630 that has a rotating screen. It's great for flipping round and taking pictures of yourself, either when held or on a tripod, but you can also take pictures down low without bending, or up high over people's heads when you can't see properly because of the crowds.

      I completely forgot about certain cameras having front screens. Those sure are cool! I wonder what the statistics are for people who have taken pictures that messed up due to that fact, not seeing what they look like before taking the picture. Which is probably why people use the mirror lol Thanks Lisa! lol
