The term covers cameras using direct-vision viewfinders, including small "compact" cameras. Unlike SLR cameras, which allow you to see the real image formed by the lens, they have a separate window within the camera.

The body by which you look straight at your subject. Based on the first user-friendly cameras invented to overcome the protracted convenient procedures that large format cameras require, they are generally small, small, and completely autonomous.

Everything, even the flash, is integrated. Technical parameters are automated with sophisticated technology, making cameras instantly ready for portable photography.

Direct-sight cameras are available in a wide range of compact models, mainly for 35mm.

There are also more expensive versions with manual exposure controls and telemeters that are designed more for professional work. They use a 35mm or roller film.

Compact and precise patterns. The purpose of these cameras is to simplify photographing ‘typical' subjects. They obtain a high technical success rate, even in fairly varied shooting conditions.

Photographers who have little interest or competence in monitoring results can expect to get recorded images, provided they work within limits as not too close; to holding.

The camera is stable and doesn't try to light an enormous landscape with a flash. "Almost everything" functions allow compact cameras to stay one step ahead when you make a quick decision to take photos of an event.
