What size LCD is on the Canon 300D?

The Canon EOS 300D features a 1.8-inch rear LCD display, which offers a resolution of 118,000 dots. LCD-size is measured across the diagonal of the screen. Having a large and detailed display on the back is convenient for image review, and settings control. Naturally, the size of the LCD is correlated with the size of the camera, as a bigger camera body will offer more space on the back to place a sizeable rear screen.

Notes: *) Information refers to the mechanical shutter, unless the camera only has an electronic one.

One convenient feature of the 300D is the presence of an on-board flash. While this built-in flash is not very powerful, it can at times be useful as a fill-in light to brighten deep shadow areas.
