Today's digital cameras typically make use of electronic viewfinders to effectively reproduce the images on the camera's screen in a more controlled viewing environment, but those electronic viewfinders come with potential drawbacks. With its new OLED electronic viewfinder, Sony is working to reduce the negatives and give its consumers the best possible photographic equipment.

Film cameras' viewfinders are completely analog, since the medium as a whole is analog. What photographers see through the viewfinder on a film camera can't be a recreation of the ultimate film print, since film and eyes react to light differently. However, digital cameras have the advantage of being able to immediately display a shot thanks to embedded screens and digital viewfinders. Sony's new tech has a resolution of 5.6 million dots and a record-breaking 6.3-micrometer dot pitch, making to crisp images through the viewfinder.
