  • Good viewfinder for the price

    posted by Bram1607 on 06/13/2013

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - 2.8x magnification is perfect (3x is too much, 2.5x is too little)
    - build quality is pretty good
    - the price, obviously

    Cons:

    - eyepiece is not great, when you push your head against it, it flaps back
    - the glass element distorts the view of the screen a little bit and introduces color fringing
    - when pushed against the back of the screen, the viewfinder wobbles a bit (the mount doesn't make contact on all 4 points evenly)

    OtherThoughts:

    I'm not sure if the mounting option (screwing it in your camera) is really a better option over glueing a magnetic strip on the DSLR screen frame, because the contact is not 100% steady.

    Bottomline:

    If you want a viewfinder under $/€50, this is a very good option.
