viewfinder or lcd screen
Aug 17, 2011

Just picked up a TL500/EX1 for all those times when small is needed. I'm very, very impressed with this little camera....particularly the clarity of the f/1.8 lens.

So far, the only real faults for me are: 1) lack of a viewfinder. If anyone has experience with a hotshoe optical finder or perhaps using an LCD viewfinder, like the Hoodman, I'd welcome the info. 2) The software's annoying habit of having to be "reset" when making menu changes that cause graying out of shooting options.... that should not be grayed out. (not a big deal, since I shoot manual, RAW 99% of the time....but some of those scene modes do look kind of cool). Much thanks for any info. provided.
