Good viewfinder for the price – 2.8X LCD Viewfinder for Canon EOS60D/600D Reviews

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)
Other:
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.
