Aside from conserving batteries, is there another benefit to using the viewfinder of a camcorder? I always use the folding LCD monitor. Thanks

To me the most obvious is critical focus which I, at least, have never been able to do with an onboard LCD.

If you don't mind, what's "critical focus?"

He means, "Focusing sharply and accurately on the subject of interest".

it depends on the camera and personal preference but outside in bright sun the lcd may be useless so don't ignore the viewfinder. Most of the smaller camcorders are designed to be used with the lcd, there seem to be very few design concessions oriented towards using the viewfinder.
