This is a bit too patronising for the older folk

Technically. Iím not old enough to be a senior, but my eyesight causes me to struggle with some digital cameras. The worst ones typically have small rear LCDs like this one, so Iím far from convinced this camera would be useful.

Extreme stereotype. At 65, I use a Nikon D3S, Nikon D700 plus about a dozen lenses. My "back pocket" small camera is a Canon S95 which offers REAL controls. Call it a camera for wives and see what reactions you get. It's a camera for the 80-percent of population (more younger than older) that don't care to learn anything (about anything) and/or can't be bothered reading instruction manuals.

I'm not exactly a Senior yet but when using a compact in bright light I can't see a thing on the rear screen. A large viewfinder would not have gone amiss
