finder, viewfinder, view finder(noun)
optical device that helps a user to find the target of interest
A device on a camera that shows what will appear in the field of view of the lens; it helps the user target a subject, zoom and focus the image
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
You do not want to be looking through the viewfinder at the sun with your eye, it is only going to magnify it into your eye.
“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.”
