I thought Point & Shoot meant no fiddling with controls of any kind as with box cameras or today's fully automated devices.

I guess Webster and Oxford will have to redefine their definitions as is necessary with so many of yesterday's words used today.

Like, like, absolutely, cool like.

If that's what's meant by point and shoot, you have to outlaw most rangefinders as they have fiddly exposure controls. A Leica M2 is a meterless fully-manual camera, but it gets in by the rules.

I think the term point and shoot as meant by this forum is:

1. No/few manual controls or automatic exposure capability present

2. No TTL viewing.
