    A while back to amuse myself I made a couple of viewfinders to use on my GF2 from optics retrieved from old film compacts with 28 and 35mm lenses grafted onto hotshoes. The results were rather ugly and I thought about how I could make something a bit better. I recently managed to print the first prototype here.


    It has a bigger and brighter view than any of the OEM accessory viewfinders I've tried at about 66% magnification. I'm looking into getting a batch made if there was enough interest, black though unless red is requested :biggrin: Also could supply the shell to someone wanting a DIY option. I have a list of suitable doner cameras which are still plentiful at boot sales and charity shops. I don't think I will be opening a factory in Shengzen, just a little boutique home workshop operation. As such I will be able to take on one off versions mounting unusual optics or fittings for the hotshoe-less eg Velcro onto a curved top. What do you think?
