A CDE Definition
See parallax error.
Also called "viewfinder error," it is the difference between what you see in a camera's viewfinder and the final picture. Typically, the picture image will be larger than the viewfinder image. There may be very little or no parallax error if the picture is previewed in the LCD screen. Single lens reflex (SLR) cameras also eliminate parallax error.
