Canon showcases a digital SLR camera prototype with OLED display

Canon has demonstrated a prototype digital SLR camera using an OLED display, which will help extend battery life and be easier for photographers to view. Unlike traditional LCD screens, which use coloured filters and a backlight, an OLED generates its own light. This improves the screen's viewing angles and lowers power consumption, both of which are very useful for digital cameras.

Canon’s OLED demonstration used a 2.4" screen with QVGA (320 x 240) resolution, which delivered a bright and detailed image with 167 pixels per inch (ppi).
