LCD EVF OVF viewfinders
Feb 19, 2013

What benefits do view finders (compared to the LCD) have other than these?

* Ergonomics? (Hand held shots at lower speeds?).

* Increased battery life.

* Composition / how? (I know some VF's on low end cameras do not have a 100% frame coverage which is a downside).

* Use in bright outdoors where the LCD can be hard to see.

Is a EVF better than OVF?  At least in non-high end cameras, that seems so since the EVF can display all the shooting parameters.

Is having a view finder high on your criteria when choosing a camera?
