Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video The LCD screen, part of Canon 60D Essential Training.
On the back of the 60D is a nice, big, 3-inch LCD Screen. You'll use this for…status information, possibly as a viewfinder, and to review images that you have shot.…You've probably already figured out that it flips out from the camera, and spins around.…When you first took the camera out of the box, it was folded up this way, so…that the screen is completely covered.…If you're traveling, if you're storing the camera for a long time, this is…a better way to keep the screen because it will keep the screen from getting scratched.…Like the LCD screen on your phone or other cameras, it is possible to scratch up…the screen, and that's kind of a drag because then when you're reviewing images,…it can be harder to see.…
You can get a Screen Protector that can go over it; that's not a bad idea.…Also, be aware that this hinge is fragile.…You want to be careful with it.…You want to be careful when you're taking it out and when you're rotating it,…don't ever force the screen.…Notice that the screen rotates this way. It does not rotate back the other way,…
