Backup camera LCDs

If you're making a portable you probably need something to watch it on. (Unless you want to guess what's happening in the game, but I wouldn't advise that) Anyway, this forum is your "Hacking a pocket TV/screen" one-stop solution. Share your experiences and knowledge here.

Backup camera LCDs

Post by Rocklobsta » Fri Jun 18, 2010 5:47 pm

Hi. New member here. I am currently considering building an atari 2600 handheld, and am a bit stuck in deciding the lcd to use.

I recently found this on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com/3-5-LCD-Monitor-Bac ... 335d771a1c" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and I was wondering if there is a specific reason that nobody has used any of these yet in a handheld. It seems to me that it would be much better than a pocket TV.

If anyone's used one, please let me know. It would make me feel much safer about buying it.

Thanks in advance.

They have been used. I think all the 2.5-3.5" LCDs reviewed in the reference section are advertised as backup camera screens. I'll add them to the list of usable screens in the sticky.

The only problem with those screens compared to something like the Psone/Zenith screen is lack of an audio amplifier. The back up camera LCD's do not have one, so you'll have to build your own.
