i've been lamenting the lack of a viewfinder on our point & shoot camera quite a bit, particularly outdoors in the sunlight. you just can't see very much in bright light and things aren't always composed properly in the frame.
but, a pleasant surprise has to do with the photos for our shop (items with the pink rose & blue background). the image stabilizer on the camera is great, so i haven't used a tripod as a result. i suppose there is a silver-lining to the snafu and i should consider no longer tagging my photos in flickr with - 'my dslr is broken' ;).
