23Jun No Fog LCD View Finder


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 [...]

Just some images comparing the latest DSLR View finder. – This is the Carry Speed VFinder next to the much more expesive LCDVF. The VFinder is a bit larger the LCDVF, but also has a much more comfortable Eye Cup. Neither loupes have a diopter feature and are mounted to the camera via metal sticky [...]

10Jan 3:2 LCD View Finder for Canon T2i


Tweet
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 [...]

14Dec Meike Changes DSLR LCD ViewFinders


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 [...]

25Aug The $99 3″ LCD View finder goes $49


Tweet

It’s the 3″ LCD View Finder I posted about back in July found here: http://cheesycam.com/ebay-dslr-view-finder/. This item was rare at the time, and then when it became popular it sold for $99 bucks. I stopped talking about it because at $99 dollars, it didn’t sound like too much of a deal. For more information on [...]

BlueStar Eyecushion upgrades for your view finder loupes are definitely high quality stuff for an inexpensive price. I just received two in this morning, in colors Red and in Tan, with a Microfiber finish. If you’re looking for the type to fit onto the LCDVF or LCDVF clone perfectly, you’ll want to go with [...]

(Above) Original LCDVF vs LCDVF Clone
Here’s a couple of snapshots i’m sharing with everyone LCDVF vs LCDVF Clone. One is the real, and one is the clone. You can barely tell any difference at all. Even the bag is legit! The clone fit ‘perfectly’ on my original LCDVF metal frame that was already mounted on [...]

LoupeTalk DIY Adapter for Hoodman Loupe from emmagination on Vimeo.
A couple of people have commented about how their LCD Viewfinders can lose adhesion from the metal frame to the LCD glass. Just wanted to remind everyone about an old video I posted a while back that might be a good solution by permanently (epoxy) attaching [...]

As with my fears for the new Zoom H1 selling out quickly, the LCDVF 3:2 for the Canon 550D / T2i is already listing as sold out. Luckily I grabbed mine a bit early, even though I haven’t even mounted it yet. Obviously the Canon T2i was trending in sales [...]
