Have had the camera for 2+ weeks now. Takes great pictures, and does just about everything as advertised. But...

How do you take pictures outdoors on a sunny day without a view finder? Literally all you see on the screen when its sunny outside is yourself (which in my case is scary).

This is our (its mostly my wife's camera) first without a view finder.

Of course you can just guess and snap away, but realistically its very difficult to setup the shot.

It's like windshield wipers on a car... you have to learn to look through them.

If I see my own reflection in the LCD it is because the sun is too bright on my face, not on the screen. I move my left hand close to my face to shield the sun, rather than close to the camera to shield the LCD. This lets me frame the picture, then I move my left hand back to the camera to fine tune the shot.

It helps a little, but still difficult.

I would not buy another serious camera without a real viewfinder.
