    Sony A7R vs Nikon D800 comparison: 05 Viewfinder and LCD screen

    The Sony A7R’s screen is a tilting 3-inch TFT panel with a resolution of 921K dots. An articulated rear monitor is a distinct advantage for video recording and shooting from more unusual angles.

    The lack of touchscreen functionality may be disappointing for some photographers, as it’s something that’s been well implemented in Panasonic’s G-series of compact camera systems.

    In addition to the high-res rear screen, the Sony A7R has a built-in XGA OLED electronic viewfinder (‘Tru-Finder’) with a resolution of 2.4 megapixels.

    The Nikon D800 sticks with the traditional optical viewfinder arrangement, but has a slightly larger rear monitor. But at 912K-dots, the Nikon’s 3.2-inch TFT LCD is a slightly lower resolution than the Sony A7R’s screen.

    The Sony A7R does have the edge here, although if electronic viewfinders aren’t your bag you’re unlikely to be swayed.
