I can’t find it

I used to have an old ELPH with an optical viewfinder.  The entire sub-compact camera category is virtually gone (replaced by phones).

I’m looking for a pocketable camera with a viewfinder for around $350.  It has to have a viewfinder because it’s a requirement for the person who will use it.

Any advice will be appreciated!!

Re: I can’t find it

Camera Feature Search only came up with the Sony HX80 which has a pop up EVF.  I don't know if it is small enough.

Otherwise, what about a used Sony RX100 Mk3 or later?

Look used; I think Keh has bunches of cameras that might do. Eg https://www.keh.com/shop/canon-powershot-sx50-hs-12-1-megapixel-bridge-camera-black.html

Did you look in your pants?!

Yes, I'm trying to be funny. Maybe you were too. To avoid flippant answers such as mine, I respectfully suggest more specific titles for your future posts. Seriously. (And not only you but also anyone else the advice could also apply to). With the number of posts present on DPR forums, it's rather inefficient for readers to wonder whether a post might be of interest to them, or whether they have something useful to contribute, when the title contains little or no useful information.

Re: I can’t find it

I suggest an RX100III used or on sale, 1" sensor and very good lens plus EVF.

The RAW files are pretty good. Post title is a little weird btw.

Thanks,  but a used camera is not an option. The camera is supposed to be for someone else.  As for the title - there are plenty of similarly ambiguous titles in this forum.  Not sure why I'm the only one getting called out.
