What size LCD is on the Nikon Coolpix A?

The Nikon Coolpix A features a 3.0-inch rear LCD display, which offers a resolution of 921,000 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.

One convenient feature of the Coolpix A 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.
