Re: What's the difference of DP-30 viewfinder and modified DP-30 for DCS 760 and DCS 720x

The 720x viewfinder was modified to give 100% view with the 1.6 focal length magnification of the sensor.

Quote from 2001 review:  "The camera has a 1.6x focal length magnification, which means a 100mm lens captures an image area roughly equivalent to that of a 160mm lens on a Nikon F5 film camera. Its viewfinder is optically modified to display the actual image capture area"
