LCD

Liquid crystal display. The flat screen on many digital cameras that preview photographs that have already been taken. LCDs utilise two sheets of polarising material with a liquid crystal solution between them. An electric current passed through the liquid causes the crystals to align so that light cannot pass through them. Each crystal, therefore, is like a shutter, either allowing light to pass through or blocking the light.
