Teach me about view finders
4 months ago

I have a six year old Sony Cybershot DSC compact camera that I am looking to replace - possibly with a DLSR type camera.

It has a hole through it that I can look through to frame my shot, an 'optical view finder' ...and an LCD display that acts as an 'electronic view finder.'

Although logically correct, I realise that these are probably incorrect definitions.

So teach me about view finders... what are the differences... what makes a good one... a bad one... why would I want one although I might not need / have one... what is 'Live View'... ?
