Re: right angled view finder

I got a 1-2 x viewfinder a while ago. Not Canon from e-bay - China import if I recall correctly.

Similar to this sort of thing
2X Angle Finder for Canon 1D 1Ds 3D 5D Mark II III 7D | eBay

I'm sure a google around or search on ebay you'll find a cheaper option than Canons C viewfinder option. I suspect that the Canon may well be optically better, but is expensive for what it is.

Works ok - not used it much though. Had it for my 10D but with the liveview on my 50D - I tend to use that now.

Re: right angled view finder

Yup, as Barry suggests and Chris has found, the Seagull angle finder's perfectly good - so good that I've gone through 3 as I keep losing the viewfinder adapter (well, I have been using them for about 6 years!). Personally, my most used tool, despite having Live View
