C-5050 question

i just purchased a used C-5050. i have loved this camera ever since

it came out but really owned one just now. i noticed that when i

shoot via the viewfinder full zoom/closeup, the image that will be

recorded will be off-centered. it is almost to the upper right

quadrant of the viewfinder. it's like there is no parallux

compensation. is this normal? i don't see it in the manual. if the

lcd is used to take a picture, you get what you see.

 

open wide and about half the zoom range, this is not the case.

whether through the viewfinder or lcd.

thank you, sanford. it's not going to be a concern anyway since i'll be using the flip lcd most of the time. it's nice to have more info than what the user manual gives you.

 

remember the old p/s film cameras where they have the close focus lines in the viewfinder? i just made my imaginary lines for the c-5050. and who knows, i might be brave enough to really get into the viewfinder and literally put my lines there.

 

i looked at the c-5060 but opted for the f/1.8. and i have tons of nmh AA batteries when i was using the c-2100uz.....plus a little cheaper than the c-5060 :-)

What you're experiencing is parallax...

It is normal for any camera that does not provide true through-the-lens viewing. The camera that you have is AWESOME. I have 2 of them myself as well as the 4040. I love it as a point-and-shoot. I also own the Canon 20D but cary my 5050 almost always.
