Product Description

The DSLR LCD Viewfinder is a great accessory for anyone using a DSLR to shoot video. It solves the 3 major problems:1. The necessity to view images continuously on the LCD screen which in turn effects stability and thus focus where the camera has to be handheld away from the body.2. The inability to actually see any image on that same screen when working in any bright lighting conditions.3. Trying to ascertain the depth-of-field even if you can discern that image. The DSLR-LCD Viewfinder solves these problems by providing a finder that gives you a nice large 3-inch LCD image to work with and then adds a 3x magnification for extra clarity. What s more it features quality optics consisting of three elements arranged in 3 groups.Clipping onto the rear of your DSLR finder it provides the perfect environment for comfortable viewing incorporating as it does a soft motion-picture type moulded eyecup to block out extraneous light - thus letting you view a perfect image. It also offers an excellent range of continuous dioptre variations between + 4 and -4 to accommodate glass wearers. The combination of these features allows you to bring the camera in close to your body for increased stability and secure viewing and filming.The SEAGULL DSLR-LCD FINDER is an essential tool for any serious film maker. Without it that grouping of a small LCD screen manual focus razor thin shallow depth-of-field camera shake sunlight and glare makes shooting a video an hit-and miss affair...........with it the control is all yours Specifications:Magnification - 3xOptic Glass - 3E3GDimensions 84.5 x 70 x 77mmDiopter - +/-4Will fit LCD Size up to 3 inchComes complete with hand strapViewfinder and adaptor kits:LCD Viewfinder including adaptor bracket to fit Nikon D-SLR cameras LCDVFKITNLCD Viewfinder including adaptor bracket to fit Canon EOS D-SLR cameras LCDVFKITCAccessories:Additional adhesive adaptor LCDVFAAdaptor b

Well ordered this a couple of days ago and it arrived this afternoon. I own a zacuto z-finder and was intruigued by the seagull LCD viewfinder to purchase one and compare.

So how does this clone stack up to the original...Well it compares favourably...Infact when side by side there's a job telling them apart at first glance. they even use the z finder on the pictures of the packaging.

Build wise it's a heavy duty plastic and the knurled wheel on the diopter is easy to use, but firm enough to retain focus. The optics are clear, though you will find it cutting the corners off when you view directly into it..but you get that with most loupe viewfinders. Focus and clarity is sharp, not sure if the optics have the anti fog coating on that the z-finder has though but will find out at the weekend as I'm on a shoot with my kit.

One niggle...only one frame mount, the portion that sticks to your camera, is supplied...bit disappointed there as a spare would have been nice. But you can get them for 6quid.

I've fitted it to one of my 5d's and it is quite a secure fit. Bit of a job putting it on at first, as it requires quite a bit of force to put it on. Once it's on though it's not going anywhere fast.

Is there a down side to this nice little bit of kit...Well if you're a stills shooter as well as a video shooter, then there may well be...the frame sticks out about 5mm from the LCD...so if you're using the viewfinder you'll find you're frame digging into your nose...Now a magnetic frame would have been a better idea, but at a 1/4 to a 1/3 of the cost of a z finder I'm not arguing too much. You could argue that you can use this via live view to shoot stills, and yes you can indeed...but the drain on the batteries is significant when live view is on.

If you are looking to get a Zacuto, Genus, LCDVF, etc...and you have come across this one and wonder whether its ok or not, then I can tell you that I have worked with this and managed to produce an assignment with it with ease.

The glass fogs a bit after extended use but all you have to do is to get your eyes away from the eyepiece and then it will go away. The diopter helps me (I wear glasses) to have a clear picture. I am not fuzzy about distortion with this or vignetting because I only care to be able to see the scene sharp enough and well enough to make the shots. If you do wonder, though, I can barely see any distortion and minimal vignetting. All in all, an excellent product which you can rely on.

The other reviewer (Janek) makes a very good point, and the product description regarding the Diopter adjustment is indeed deceptive. My Viewfinder arrived today and I noticed immediately that the "adjustment knob" simply moves the eyecup further away from the LCD screen - I don't believe this is the same as having the supposed -4:+4 Diopter adjustment. I'm short-sighted (-2.75), and was relying on a Diopter system to enable me to use this without glasses. I was pretty disappointed, as the screen was blurry without my glasses on. However, I then read Oracular's post about swapping around the lenses inside the viewfinder itself; there are three lenses inside the Viewfinder stacked on top of each other. The order that these lenses are in changes how the optics work. I really have no clue about optics, so I tried swapping in the manner Oracular suggested (simply swapping the top and bottom lenses) and this didn't appear to work - it created a severe fish-eye effect. However, I then tried swapping them around in a different combination (I'm sorry, I don't remember the exact order, but there are only a limited number of ways you can swap them since two of the lenses are convex and won't fit any other way) and it fixed the issue completely. I can now use the viewfinder perfectly with/without glasses and without any fish-eye effect. Phew!

So, again - I totally agree with Janek, and it's a misleading product description. However, there is hope if you are short-sighted, it just takes some adjustments. I am not the kind of person who would normally want to open up a new purchase and take it apart, but it's pretty easy, and doesn't require any know-how or glue - just a screwdriver. I can't confirm if it works for far-sighted.

I was expecting great things with this viewfinder, but to be honest the focussing ring really doesn't seem to do that much. Coupled with the fact I now have a plastic ring stuck to the LCD screen means that it is now more difficult to see the framing without the viewfinder. Overall not much better than the non focusable unit I already had for £20.00

(Used on a t2i)

First of all, this really is a solid piece of kit. However I've found it to be a bit of a novelty rather then useful, the diopter in short is not very effective but then I have good eyesight so maybe I am missing something?

Handy when shooting video, but not essential if you are running something like Magic Lantern, haven't used it in very dynamic situations so unsure how it would effect focus response times.

In short, solid, well built, comes with a nice leather case, but is it essential..? I'd say not.
