The Cyber-shot DSC-R1 also shares the 35mm-style 2:3 aspect ratio of digital SLRs, as opposed to the less rectangular 3:4 image shape of most digital point-and-shoots. But unlike a D-SLR -- and like a digital point-and-shoot -- its bright, two-inch, 134,000-pixel tilt-and-swivel LCD provides a "live" image that can be used for composition and shooting. The LCD monitor is located on top of the camera, hinged at the camera back. That arrangement is perfect for low-angle compositions; for high angles you have to tilt the screen way down, which can be awkward. You flip the screen straight up for arm's-length, digital compact-style composition, though that doesn't make for shooting as steady as having your eye to the finder. Fortunately, the camera's 235,200-pixel eye-level EVF is uncommonly clear.
