Thanks for the comments and ideas for solving the problem.

However, I am not really interested in add-on viewing stuff, more curious about possible technology advances to solve the screen issue.

Is there any technology reason that the screen can not be reflecting the image at bright sunlight.

Looking on a Garmin GPS or their big plotter screens you can download a detailed map with very thin lines in it and still see colours and details in direct sunlight. Why is it not possible for the camera screen application?
Maybe patents?
Maybe cost?

Certainly not a big technology hurdle!

Anyone with some insight here?
