Nino Leitner has put together a comparison of several different DSLR viewfinders:
- Zacuto Z-Finder Jr.
- Cavision LCD viewfinder set for 5D Mark II
- LCDVF DSLR viewfinder
- Hoodman HoodLoupe 3.0
- Redrock Micro microFinder Loupe Accessory Kit
- Z-Finder Pro 2.5x
I've been considering the Z-Finder Pro, but was confused about the difference between the 2.5x vs. the 3x, and which was the best one to get. I was therefore interested to read Nino's comments about the two:
To be honest, I found the 3x magnfication of Z-Finder v2 too extreme as it was impossible to view the entire frame at once – I found myself looking around all the time and I ended up with some shots that showed more than what I had in mind when shooting it.If you're thinking of getting a viewfinder, you'll want to check this out. He also reports that he will be getting a Letus Hawk Viewfinder for review shortly.
