    this camera does not appear to have a view finder. If it doesen’t, it like it’s predecessors is totally worthless in sunlite , which is where you would normally use it.

  • I see no view finder–a necessity for taking good photos on bright rivers and streams. No wonder we’re forced to use the older point-and-shoot cameras! Someone in marketing needs to actually use these cameras on the water.
