    I'm using a digital camera, and I notice the LCD screen shows something different than what the viewfinder shows. I like the ability of turning off the LCD screen to save energy, but I don't like the idea of things being out of focus.

    I'm doing macro, so later cropping the things wouldn't be a problem; but I'd like to know how to correctly align something in the viewfinder. I tried looking for some manuals online, but I didn't find any that were detailed.

    What's the best way to solve parallax error?

    In most P+S cameras there are marks indicating a rough guide to framing for parallax error.
