Every contender in the world of digital camera seems to be emphasizing on the anti-blur technology. Now, Samsung has introduced, for the very first time, 3-inch LCD with a VGA resolution of 640 x 480, which would fit in any digital cameras. The LCD will let you determine the blurriness of the photos. Digital camera makers use an interface known as ITU-R601, an international standard for cathode ray tube TVs that operate at 30Hz. This standard is incompatible with LCDs, which normally run at 60Hz. Manufacturers have had to reconcile the difference either by compressing the images or by manipulating the signal. However, such approaches will only work with LCDs having a resolution of qVGA (320 x 240 pixels) or less. Samsung’s new LCD operates on 30Hz, allowing VGA images to be obtained from a digital camera without having to create another interface. These LCD screens are expected to be launched in the Q1 of 2007.
