The 3.0-inch TFT LCD Display is large and bright.

Thanks to Easy Auto Mode, newer photographers can let the L28 figure out the best settings for any shooting condition, but if you like to stylize your photos, there's also Smart Portrait Mode with six adjustable functions, including Face-priority AF (Auto Focus), Skin Softening, Smile Timer, Blink Proof, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix.
