Due to the popularity of large display screens, mainstream compact cameras that come with optical viewfinders are few and far in between today. Nevertheless, we did manage to find a handful of such cameras to present to you. Here is a small list of compact point and shoot digital cameras that come with optical viewfinders.
Canon PowerShot A1400
This is a highly rated entry-level compact digital camera that comes with a set of decent features (including an optical viewfinder) that is set to meet the needs of the casual camera user. This camera model comes with a 16MP image sensor, 5x optical zoom and a 2.7-inch LCD display screen. It also records 720p HD videos. The only odd feature of this model is that it makes use of AA batteries. Regular AA batteries may not last as long as rechargeable lithium ion battery. So be sure to buy a set of high quality rechargeable AA batteries to use with this camera. On the upside, the fact that this camera makes use of AA batteries means that you can always run to the store to buy a set whenever you need some extra power. If you would like to save on battery power, you could always turn off the LCD display and use just the optical viewfinder for taking photos. It is currently priced around $70 each.
