I have an EOS1000D camera which still takes photographs but I can only use the optical viewfinder the LCD screen displays the settings but when I press the shutter button halfway it doesn't allow me to see what I wan to photograph. I've looked at the guide and reset the default settings following the instructions but this hasn't sorted the problem - help please Gareth Cockcroft
