/ Small camera with optical viewfinder?
Does anyone know of any small point and shoot cameras with an optical viewfinder other than the Canon 1200/1300/1400 series?
I know this is like asking for unicorn sightings these days but i thought there might be others still being made.
There are "high end" models from Leica, Ricoh and Voigtlander which will either be rangefinders or "allow" the attachment of an optical viewfinder. Which makes them small no more I guess.
Check out the Fuji X10.
Out of genuine interest, what's your objection to the Canon?
The rest of your options seem to involve cameras like BS suggested, which are not really compact and hardly likely to come under the category of "point and shoot".
There is also the halfway house of a clip-on EVF like on my Ricoh and some Samsungs. I think it's brilliant ( you can rotate it through 90degrees) but there are thousands of detractors out there.
My wife has got a Canon Powershot 1200. So far it's been great as a point and shoot with optical VF. If it conks out we'll probably buy another straight away.
Top of my wish list in the category. Pity the lens isn't a bit wider and I would miss my Ricoh's intervalometer.
I have a Sony dsc w300 with an optical viewfinder, 13.6mp, lovely photos, brushed metal body e.t.c, I never use it, would sell?
I'm not against the Canon i just wondered if there were any others.
