AA battery powered AND Optical view finder semi compact
9 months ago

I dont think any mfgr makes an inexpensive camera today that uses AA batteries and

has an optical view finder.   I bought a Canon model in 2009 A1100-IS  that would take more

than 900  photos using two AA rechargeable batteries with the LCD viewfinder turned off.

Alas after nearly five years of heavy use and many thousands of photos it has died.

Even though such a camera may not be made by any mfgr these days, I wanted

to know if any manufacturers made cameras with optical viewfinders and were AA

powered  in the last few years that might have been improvements on the old

Canon A1100-IS ?    If so I could seek to purchase a used model of one of these

types of cameras.     Can anyone recommend any older models and they do not

have to be very small.   Indeed I like the bigger models with easier to access buttons

and switches etc.
