    I've designed and built a viewfinder to use on a flipped out G screen. Half an hour doodling in Autodesk 123D the 4hours of 3D printing. Now waiting for the necessary lens to arrive on a slow boat from China. Simplicity itself, it just slips onto the end of the screen and slides across. Retained by friction.

    I photograph everything from dog shows to special events to catalogue work to trade shows and every thing in between!
    I wand to be your beta tester! Will you be adding a magnifying eyepiece like Zacuto?

    The simple biconvex lens arrived and unfortunately distorts horribly. Need to investigate further
