Default Help finding cameras with diopter adjustment-

I really like this website and use it often to do research on cameras. What I need is a small camera (2+mpxls) that has a diopter adjustment. There are so many cameras out there that it's nearly impossible to go through them all. I probably would have sent an email to Steve asking about this, but I don't see an email address. Probably a smart move on his part although I don't need recommendations just the names of cameras I can do further research on. Thanks very much if you can help me out!

I know that the Canon G-series has one! Some Nikon too.

The olympus c series (4000, 4040, 5050, 5060, 740, 750, etc) have a diopter adjustment. The Nikon 5700 also has the diopter adjustment.

Thanks Gibson and Klaus. The key word here is small..preferably a pocket type camera.

A diopter adjustment is usually the least of your worries in a pocket camera. The viewfinders tend to be very small, so you're usually better off framing with the LCD.

I'd go down to a store, and try out the cameras yourself. You can't assume that because a pocket camera does or does not have a diopter adjustment, that it's going to have a viewfinder that you will find acceptable.
