The SILVER EDITION Reason #1:
Why? With a display you can "frame," your shots with better accuracy that without a display. Without a display, you are basically shooting blind. You are guestimating. Sure, it can be fun, thrilling and exhilarating to

This has happened to me, MANY times. I'd do a shoot in Santa Monica at Tower 26.
