LCD Screen Size and Features
Casio EX-100's 3.5" LCD screen is slightly larger than Leica V-Lux 40's 3" screen.
In addition to the size advantage, Casio EX-100 LCD screen also has a Tilting feature
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over the head levels. On the other hand, Leica V-Lux 40 has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to EX-100.
