    Comments about Canon Ee-D Grid-type Focusing Screen:

    This focusing screen came with good instructions and a tool for replacing my existing screen. It also includes a case to store your old screen. I prefer the grid type screen for viewing my level in the scene. I did have to change my camera's custom settings Operation/Other to accomadate the "D" type screen rather than the "A" it came with. Not a problem at all. I would highly recommend this product.

        It helps to line up straight lines,the horizon. what did I do without it....a close to perfect picture with slightly off horizon line--makes for an unhappy photographer!!!! love it.

            Easy to install after you figure it out how.
            It is not the usual 2 lines vertical and horizontal
            grid so you have to get used to but it definitely is
            a great tool for composition.

                Does Not Have 6-Lines On The Vertical

                  Comments about Canon Ee-D Grid-type Focusing Screen:

                  ...counted them twice. I still come up with only five vertical lines. So there must be a difference between this and the EGD Screen. Since I only have the original Canon 5d screen (and now the EED screen), I can only comment on what I have in comparison.

                  The EED Screen seems a lot brighter. I have an older Canon 5d that doesn't have Live View. I like the grid feature presented, and I am certain that it will help to align my shots on the horizontal. Especially for the quick, low shots on-the-fly and occasional tripod mounted architectural indoor shots.

                  Easy to assemble and use. Comes with a nice swap-out tool and case. Instructions are straight-forward.

                      Don't be fooled by the advertising photo in the catalogue listings, the very fine but clear gridlines are totally unobtrusive in the viewfinder; like they aren't there yet crisp and distinctive when you need them.

                                      Found this useful for lining up the horizon for landscape photography and generally in composing shots. Helpful also in architecture photography.

                                        Think how many time you didn't pay attention at your framing? (did you ever?)
                                        Really great tool for making framing decisions right on spot.
                                        Brightness wasn't an issue for me with my set up.

                                          I'm a jewelry photographer and it's great for making sure everything is plum.
