  1. Viewfinder

    In photography, a viewfinder is what the photographer looks through to compose, and in many cases to focus, the picture. Most viewfinders are separate, and suffer parallax, while the single-lens reflex camera lets the viewfinder use the main optical system. Viewfinders are used in many cameras of different types: still and movie, film, analog and digital. A zoom camera usually zooms its finder in sync with its lens, one exception being rangefinder cameras.

Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Jack Leigh:

    “You look through the viewfinder and know that it is your responsibility and your art and your passion to look at everything in that frame as part of a whole that you need to shape. There’s nothing in that frame which should go unnoticed. Then that’s what it means to be thinking and seeing as a photographer.”
