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

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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
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.

I was sceptical about buying a cheaper viewfinder but it works really well on my Canon. So far I'm very pleased with it.Published on 10 Jun. 2013 by Kate Fisher
Design wise, just a copy of other popular (and far more expensive) choice, but once again... what you pay is what you get. Optically is not correct. Read morePublished on 9 Mar. 2013 by D San Millan
Just a quick note to say how outstanding this piece of kit is. I haven't used the more expensive equivalent but was keen to get my hands on this as all the reviews were saying that... Read morePublished on 28 Mar. 2012 by David Tripp
