  • Do any point and shoot cameras have viewfinders?

    Point-and-shoot cameras are distinguished from single-lens reflex cameras (SLRs) in several respects: point-and-shoot film cameras, and many digital ones, use a viewfinder. Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras (MILC Cameras) lack a mirror but in many ways can be used the same as DSLRs.

    Do any compact cameras have a viewfinder?

    Do you really need a viewfinder?

    Viewfinders, like digital camera LCD monitors, are used to compose and frame a scene. Viewfinders serve another important purpose. While looking through the viewfinder, you can steady the camera by bracing it against your face, making the camera less prone shake.

    What is the part of the camera that you look through?

    Viewfinder. The viewfinder is the hole in the back of the camera that a photographer looks through to aim the camera. Some viewfinders use a mirror inside the camera to look “through the lens” (TTL). Other viewfinders are simply holes through the body of the camera.

    Why is the viewfinder blurry?

    What is a diopter? The diopter is a small lens in your camera’s viewfinder. If your eyesight is good and you are using a camera that’s had the diopter adjusted, you will see a blurry image in the viewfinder. You will need to adjust the diopter to correct this so you can see a sharp image.

    What’s the difference between optical viewfinder and electronic viewfinder?

    There are two types of viewfinders: optical (OVF) and electronic (EVF). Electronic viewfinders use a tiny electronic display much like the larger LCD screen on the back of all cameras, whereas optical viewfinders use mirrors and prisms to represent the view of a scene.
