Many digital cameras have viewfinders that use thin film transistor (TFT) technology, giving a clear rendition of the subject on a fairly small screen. Epson has been producing such panels for a while and the latest evolution in their product range is the Ultimicron panel which has a 0.38" (diagonal) screen. This has "the same resolution in relation to the existing L3F04S-80300 0.47-inch SVGA panel."

Ultimicron Epson has announced the start of volume production of this item which it claims, has supreme definition and vividness with,

  • Smooth gradations and reproduction of natural softness
  • Sufficient visibility under various light conditions
  • No color breakup
  • Compact and slim design for cameras with a built-in viewfinder

The press release from Epson also tells us that "The latest Ultimicron product will be exhibited at Epson's booth at the CP+ 2014 camera and photo imaging show in Yokohama, Japan, from February 13 to 16."

Specifications and other information are available in a PDF document that may be downloaded from the Epson site, where there is also more information on the Ultimicron series.
