I can't afford an SLR, but, man, showing only 80-85% of the scene through the viewfinder (as all the consumer 3-4MP cameras seem to do) is maddening!

I don't want to compose with LCD, it's an entirely different sort of immersion (like watching tv, not as intimate as Photography IMO).

Do I have any options? Any brands out there that actually show you what you're shooting?

Even with some higher grade cameras, you're likely to suffer from some sort of parallax. The 8MP Canon Powershot Pro 1 has about 85% coverage. Even the 10D only has 95%.

I'm not sure that you can do much about this without syncing your camera with a laptop and using its LCD screen to compose your shot. Mind you for this you're going to need a tripod and a platform for the laptop as well.
