    Do they still make under $150 dcams with optical view finders?
    Something like the old Kodak DX series and so on?
    Thank you.

    A simple answer to your question is, no.
    This is a case of saying, good luck with that hunt. You are not likely
    to find an optical viewfinder digital compact for under $150 today,
    other than on eBay or Amazon.com.

    There are some options slightly above that level, but many may no
    longer be available, and others are well above $150. Here is a short
    list for you to check. Your best bet to find some of the more obscure
    cameras, might be Amazon.com.

    Canon Powershot A1100 IS: approx $240
    Canon Powershot SD780 IS: approx $200
    Canon Powershot SD1200 IS: approx $200
    Canon Powershot G12: approx $430-$500
    Nikon Coolpix P7000: approx $450-$500

  5. I doubt it. The last of those I saw advertised new anywhere were Canon
    Elphs, the SD1200 IS model. You can find them used on eBay, or some "new
    old" stock there too. Some Canon A series like the A590 also.

    Or the very nice little Nikon P50, but far fewer of those than the various
    Canons.

    Brand new in stores I doubt you'll find that sort of thing. You're not the
    only one who wants one, but I'm afraid optical viewfinders on small
    inexpensive cameras are pretty much a thing of the past.

    My wifes pocket sized Canon Ixus 100IS was about £120 15 mths ago and
    has an optical view finder, it zooms and reflects the image quite
    accurately . So tiny it only gets used in bright sunlight and it sends
    my eyes funny.

    But £120 is about $200.
