Steve,

In your reviews you usually mention whether the EVF blanks during burst mode shooting. You didn't mention it in your review of the G6. I take sport shots so it is important to me. Does the subject remain visible during burst mode shooting or does the EVF go blank in the G6?

thanks
richard

Richard,

I might be able to help on this.

The Canon G6 does not have an electronic viewfinder. It has both an optical viewfinder and a LCD screen.

So,
without sounding too stupid.....

if I use the optical viewfinder I will be able to follow a moving subject at all times during a burst, right?

thanks,
richard

Yes, a optical viewfinder is great for following moving subjects while taking pitures. Unless the moving subjects are moving fast towards or away from the camera, in that case the autofocus will be tested...

stupie newbie question#2:

Does the optical viewfinder enlarge the subject with the zoom, or does the subject stay the same size like in an old rangefinder?

thanks,
richard

while looking through viewfinder it enlarges subject with the optical zoom, until you hit digital zoom (it if is enabled). No change when looking through viewfinder when in digital zoom.

Usually not... (ie the coupling is only in 1-axis)
