Parallax

Parallax (optical) is the difference between the view of object through a direct camera lens and a separate viewing eyepiece. It can cause unexpected and undesirable cropping of the intended image area.

Parallax is most common in twin-lens, rangefinder and point-and-shoot cameras. It is not applicable to single lens reflex or view cameras.

Also see Light parallax.
