      Comments about Canon EVF-DC1 Electronic Viewfinder for PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera:

      i am a fairly serious amateur who has used Nikon SLR and DSLR cameras and lenses since the days of the Nikormat. I purchased the Canon G1X Mark II as a trial and found it to be an excellent choice for travel and instances when I did not want to lug my DSLR. The LCD monitor was difficult to see in sunlight, and especially for fine focusing. I was hesitant to buy the EVF-DC1 viewfinder because of its steep price, but after reading reviews about it purchased one form B&H. For me this changed a very good camera into an excellent camera. It is easy to use, and only functions when the camera is brought to the eye covering the optics. Simultaneously, the LCD monitor on the rear of the camera goes dark. When the eye is removed from the viewfinder, the LCD monitor activates. The viewfinder aids tremendously in composing and focusing, the latter particularly helpful in macro shots where fine focusing is critical. In short, the high purchase price was money well spent. Any hesitancy about purchasing the camera dissipated once the viewfinder was added.

      Comments about Canon EVF-DC1 Electronic Viewfinder for PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera:

      I have never used an EVF before and decided to splurge when I got my G1 X II. I am trying to train myself to remember to use it as I have gone so long without such a device. It truly helps with focus and composition. Very helpful with Macro close-ups. It is very small which I like. What I don't like is the price tag - very expensive and I hope I get my money's worth out of it. Also the fact that it can't be used with an external flash.

          Es increible que una cámara como la G1X Mark II no tenga visor, ya que es Imprescindible para este tipo de cámara. Gran luminosidad y toda la información que te ofrece la reflex en el visor, aquí también. Genial

            I bought this because sometimes in the bright light i can't see the display to try and focus. I love this view finder. It's comfortable and oh so clear and useful.

            EVF-DC1 more useful than I imagined

                  I bought the EVF-DC1 for my G1XMK2 thinking it would help out in direct sunlight conditions.

                  When I got it and started using it I realized that:

                  1) Yes, it is very helpful in bright sunlight.

                  2) It really helps me concentrate on careful image composition and framing.

                  3) The fact that it tilts through approximately 90 degrees allows you to pick a comfortable viewing angle even if you place the camera on a table top or bend down to take a shot of a low-positioned object.

                  The diopter adjustment works well too.
                  The display is very clear and bright.
                  Automatically switches off when your eye is away from the finder to conserve power.

                              Comments about Canon EVF-DC1 Electronic Viewfinder for PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera:

                              I bought this to compliment my G1x MkII and to turn it into a fully functioning landscape camera. The G1x is a fantastic camera but one doesn't always want to look at the LCD on the back and for a lot of shots a proper viewfinder is the only way to go. The image is bright and clear and contains all the information accessible on the back screen.
                              Only two downsides. There is a button on the side of the unit that changes it from sensing your eye and changing from back to viewfinder to just being viewfinder all the time but, if you change it to just VF it pretty quickly switches back off its own accord. Secondly, I wish there were a lock button to stop it moving up to an angled view. It does that of its own accord quite frequently.
                              Good, solid construction and the lock button to lock it on the camera is great.

                              Very bright and clear viewfinder for the Canon G1X Mark Ii Camera. Installs very easily and fits nicely. A bit pricey but an accurate and well made viewfinder.
