OVF or EVF??
Mar 17, 2014

Hi All.

I am in the process of stepping away from simple point and shoots and want a compact camera which is more advanced. I'm looking at the Fuji X20 and the Olympus Stylus 1.

I would like more than just an LCD screen. The X20 has a decent OVF whereas something like the Stylus has an EVF.  I've read the EVF's are generally on the up and becoming a more viable option. The main advantage of the EVF I suppose is 'what you see is what you get' so why the loyalty to the OVF?

What are the main advantages and disadvantages of both? And which do you prefer?

Thanks, Sherlock.

Fujifilm X20
