  • Great for ground glass focusing on LF cameras

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Bought this item for one purpose only - to be able to better focus my large format (LF) field camera. I just put it on the ground glass and adjust my focus.
    A cheap item, does what it says. Ok construction (I wouldn't say solid, but not flimsy either. Well, it's only a piece of plastic after all)

    Cons:

    The only issue (not for me though) is a narrow field of view. You can see the object in the centre magnified, the rest is a bit of a blur, especially towards the edges. But this is an inherent issue (feature) of single-element magnifying loupes design.
    No issue with me.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    An ok product, fair price. Works great as a ground glass magnifier.
