OK i just found another review which says you CAN compose the shot in the rear LCD screen...Which makes sense..So i now wonder where the original review was coming from?..Anyway,it seems there are no major complaints with this camera and the price is nice..Its about 50% of the cost of my next best option.

Why is there no mention of the fact that there is no viewfinder?? Not even a preview of the shot on the rear lcd screen..Only one review has mentioned it so far,with most just a regurgitation of official product promotion....Call me suspicious,but am yet to find a proper test of this camera.
