The image in the view finder is distorted


It's possible it got bent out of shape. The viewfinders in pocket cameras are secondary to the rear screen, and some more recent models lack them entirely.

The reason why the screen is better in these cameras is because the main lens, and the viewfinder are separate by a few inches, so what you see in the view finder, and what the camera takes a picture of can vary by quite a bit.

Query Regarding No Display on LCD (view finder) in Canon Digital IXUS 750


With the camera on, have you tried pressing the DISP button once? It's the lower left button on the back of the camera. It manually turns the display on or off as desired to save batteries (you can then aim through the optical viewfinder).
