Default Eyesight Problems - Best Compact Digital?

Hi
I am looking for a compact digital camera that has dioptric adjustment on the viewfinder and possibly on the lcd screen. Does such a thing exist?

My Mum wears glasses for viewing close-up and hence cannot focus on the rear lcd of a camera whilst also looking at the actual scene that she is trying to photograph. With her glasses on she can see the screen but then cannot see the scene, but if she removes them (as is normal for her, except when reading) she cannot focus on the lcd for either framing the photo or selecting menu items.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks, Mark

I don't think you can get dioptric adjustment on the LCD.

When you say "compact" do you mean pocket size, or bigger is OK?

there is no feature like that for an lcd.

if you go up to a superzoom, you can get dioptric adjustment on the evf

Ideally I would be looking for pocket sized, but others can be considered if they affer a more practical solution.

Thanks
