The Panasonic DMC ZS40 is the first Compact Super-zoom (see types of Cameras Part 2), with a Live View viewfinder. It’s small, has megazoom, a Live View viewfinder, has functions including Wifi and 3D , and  it’s under $500. So when you’re in the South African sun you can still see and adjust your image. No more big hats or umbrellas needed. Look for the other brands to follow suit soon.
