I got the Canon A4000 IS and walked the few steps to the fence.
Now the problem. Much as I like this little camera, this was the very situation in which the lack of a view-finder practically precludes getting the shot.
The examples shown here were by point and by guess, for the screen
was so washed out by the sunlight that no effort to shade it would allow me to focus on the object of my choosing. Major flaw. Fortunately, I still have my A520, so the next time the butterflies fly my way, I'll be better prepared.
