Viewfinders on Compacts
Reference your reply to Steward Murray in this month's WDC (August 2011), there is, in fact, one new compact camera with an optical viewfinder available, from Jessops and a few other places, the Canon A1200. It has a 12MP sensor and a 28-112mm (equivalent) zoom lens. I bought one a couple of months ago, and it is a first class camera. Check it out, at £79.95 it is a bargain.
That's good news Roy and will be of great help to those seeking such a camera, there's no substitute for a good optical viewfinder. Nice one.
