Electronic screen viewfinder

An LCD screen used to frame a shot while avoiding the “parallax error.” Unlike the typical optical viewfinder it is 100% accurate (what you see is what you’ll capture).

Disadvantages of electronic screen viewfinders include:

  • difficult to view in bright light
  • drain on battery power
  • may require holding the camera in an unstable position, resulting in blurry images
