If you are referring to the fact that the Nikon camera doesn't have an
optical finder, I wouldn't be too concerned about that. I recentlty
purchased a Coolpix 8800, and it doesn't have an optical finder
either, but it is beautiful in low light situations, where it enhances
the available light so I can see what I'm looking at, better. Also,
no problem seeing through the viewfinder in bright sunlight. I hardly
ever use the big LCD panel, because the finder works so well.
Hopes that helps, and NO, I don't work for Nikon or sell their
cameras. Good luck.
