Mounting Kamerar QV-1 to Fhugen GH3 Video Cage – DIY
January 18, 2014


Tweet
Ok, before you continue trying to tackle this project, i’d like to point out that Kamerar will be releasing a new baseplate for the QV-1 LCD View Finder. This new baseplate will allow the QV-1 to fit better with smaller camera systems – which will render this DIY useless for many.
Now because I don’t have [...]

Burn Test – Kamerar QV-1 LCD ViewFinder
September 17, 2013


Tweet
For about $65 dollars, one would think that the Kamerar QV-1 LCD View Finder would be using a very cheap optical element. Seeing how sharp the screen looked through the loupe, I inquired if it was real glass. They stated that it was indeed glass and not your average cheap resin (plastic) element found on [...]

Tweet

The new Carry Speed VF-3 LCD View Finder does not sit low enough to be used on a camera like the GH2, so the solution would be to raise the camera. Here Scott writes in and shares his DIY mod using two Sima quick release adapters to get the viewfinder to somewhat fit on the [...]

ViewFinders for Canon 5D Mark III?
September 10, 2012


Tweet
In bright daylight, it’s difficult to focus and set exposure on a bare LCD. Sometimes a quick LCD View Finder attached to the back of the camera is all you need (no batteries required). I still find an LCD View Finder a valuable tool to have, but haven’t seen many options available for the Canon [...]

DIY CarrySpeed LCD VFinder Mount
July 12, 2011


Tweet

Here’s a clever way to get a semi-permanent CarrySpeed Vfinder view finder to mount to your camera. The LCD glass protector was an old trick to permanently glue a sticky frame or even the DSLR LCD view finder itself, but they aren’t available in all camera models. If you don’t have this protector available for [...]

No Fog LCD View Finder
June 23, 2011


Tweet

Yes, even high end view finders could fog up. Tested a few things, and this FOGTECH anti-fog liquid works great and is easy to apply. Just apply it with a wet pad and let it dry for 5 seconds. Makes a huge difference. A good thing to wipe on the GoPro HD Hero as well [...]

iDC Canon 60D LCD View Finder Base Plate
May 6, 2011


Tweet
Trying to get a ViewFinder on a Canon 60D? iDC has an answer, but you may not like the price. It’s over $200 dollars for a baseplate that screws under the camera and comes with a Hoodman Loupe. IMO, I think the price is pretty high for something like a small Hoodman. Will it fit [...]

GH2 (GH1) ViewFinder to support Flip Out LCD
March 5, 2011


Tweet

There’s the usual LCD View Finders that might work on the GH2, but a very interesting one from Varavon allows you to flip out the LCD and provide enough support so that you don’t break it off. Something that can’t be done with the traditional sticky metal frame. The company is the same who provided [...]

Finding a decent 3:2 LCD View Finder still seems to be on everyone’s list. I’ve been getting a few emails from Glenn today and he seems to have tracked one down from Meike. Now Meike was the one who released the LCDVF clone model a while back which everyone was pretty much satisfied with. They [...]

Meike Changes DSLR LCD ViewFinders
December 14, 2010


Tweet

OK, the first part of the video is me testing out the Sony SLTA55 and it’s Auto Focus and Auto Exposure features. I’m not a fan of ‘Auto Exposure’, but as you can see the ‘Auto Focus’ kicks butt and works pretty fast. Not ideal for every situation, and with lots of movement happening in [...]
