19. Has an electronic viewfinder

An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.
