electronic viewfinder (EVF)

The electronic viewfinder is a concept used in digital cameras and digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras

. Unlike a purely optical viewfinder, the electronic viewfinder captures the image from the lens on a CCD sensor, captures it and displays it on a small LCD screen

. The advantage of an electronic viewfinder is the low viewfinder parallax and the possibility to display the scenes in zooming mode.

Furthermore, such a viewfinder display can show additional information about the camera settings and poor lighting conditions can be made more visible by adjusting the brightness of the display.
