Pros:
Decent build quality for the price Great price compared to other similar products Really clear image Blocks out the surroundings perfectly The bolt has a tripod thread on its bottom which is really useful The design is symmetrical and you can turn the viewfinder the other way around - this way it can be used with both eyes Folds nicely
Cons:
The frame is made from a soft metal and it bends when carrying detached from the camera in my backpack The rubber eye-cup's edges are a bit sharp and uncomfortable to press your head against There are tiny hairs that fall from the black cloth inside the viewfinder and stick to the camera display due to static electricity and you will have to wipe your display regularly. After about ten wipes it seems the hairs seized to fall. There is a noticeable lens barrel distortion around the edges, but it's not a big deal
Other:
Used on a 600D and works great. Really helps to bring sharp focus when recording videos or shooting using Live View mode. Works wonders when used together with the digital crop zoom.
Bottomline:
Highly recommended for the DSLR cinematographer on a budget. Delivers what you need and has a great price tag.
