A to Z Challenge: V is for Viewfinder

Welcome to today’s post for the great Blogging A to Z Challenge!

Today is V is for Viewfinder.

A viewfinder is something I don’t have on my little point and shoot, but do have on my DSLR.  I can only use the LCD display to see what I am going to shoot on the little camera, but can’t use on my DSLR – that’s right.  My new-old DSLR’s LCD screen is only for looking at the pictures AFTER they have been taken.

Of course, it’s hard to take a picture of your viewfinder with the camera the viewfinder is attached to.  So, here are some pictures of my DSLR’s viewfinder and LCD screen taken with the old emPhone.

Here, the LCD screen is blank so we see a nice reflection of the old emPhone!


And here are some views through the viewfinder…

Here’s a nice article explaining the difference between using the viewfinder and the LCD screen (if you have that option!) http://digital-photography-school.com/should-i-use-the-lcd-or-viewfinder-on-my-digital-camera/

  1. I guess the view finder is kind of going the way of the dinosaur now with the LCD screen. I didn’t even realize that my little point and shoot only has the LCD until you mentioned it, much like the phone.
