Digital viewfinder lag
Jan 10, 2014

I see in many posts here that say mirrorless cameras are not good for fast action because there is a lag in their digital view finder. I assume this must be correct. What I would like to know is the lag time for these view finders.

I have no problem with my Fuji X-20 because its additional optical view finder is not digital. Its separate lens system sinks with the camera's zoom with no lag. However my Fuji HS50 optical viewfinder is digital. I don't do many fast action shots so I'm not aware of the difference between the two cameras. Wondering how big the difference is. Has anyone tried shooting fast action with a mirrorless camera thru its digital viewfinder and what were the results?
