Center the viewfinder

    I have a Sony DSC-V1 digital camera. If I use the optical viewfinder
    to fully zoom onto a subject, then center the subject in the
    viewfinder, the resulting picture shows the subject slightly off
    center. Is this normal with digital cameras, or just this particular
    camera?

    Look where the viewfinder is, then look where the lens is. What do you
    think? If you want to get *exactly* what is being captured on the sensor,
    use the LCD. That's what it's there for.
