Re: I want an OVF...
In reply to Don_D, Apr 20, 2008

I ran a
few trials comparing the two methods and found that there was only a
very slight benefit to holding the camera to your face.

There you go...

What? There is virtually no difference. You run into a good chance of getting blurred picture at almost exactly the same place.

and believe me as you get as old and as shaky as I the
benefit increases.

Sure. Individual differences factor into all of this.

I also want an OVF because I can't see the LCD in sunlight. To me a
OVF is highly desirable feature even on an ultra compact camera.
Make the LCD a little smaller and add the OVF like many Canon P&Ss.

I too prefer cameras that have both an eye level and LCD finder. Options are good.
