        meh - never mind - it DOES mention the viewfinder. But I'll mention it again as a reason to buy this camera! :o)

        One strength not mentioned in the above comparison is an OPTICAL VIEWFINDER on the Kodak. You have the option of using the digital viewfinder instead of the LED for lower battery use, less light throw off the screen, and easier use in bright light.
        Nikon (as well as many other high zoom point and shoots) don't even offer this as a feature.
