G12 View Finder
Mar 20, 2011

I just received my G12 yesterday. I haven't had much time to play with it but I have to say I'm a little disappointed in the OVF. I don't see how it can be of any use given it's size and lack of displayed info. I've always chuckled when I've seen people trying to take a good photo while holding the camera out in front and using the LCD. I guess I'm going to have to learn other ways to steady the camera and rely on IS.
Really, is any body using the OVF in their technique with the G12?

BTW, my other cameras are a 40D and a Panasonic FZ50. Both have useful viewfinders.

Thanks, Harry
