      Comments about VF-11 External Optical View Finder for Sigma DP1, DP1s, DP1x, DP1 Merrill Digital Cameras:

      composing pictures through the lcd screen of the DP1 Merrill isn't always the easiest, especially in bright sunlight. The VF-11 makes composing my pictures a breeze.

      It is really unobtrusive and looks good on the camera.

      It takes the place of the flash, so you cannot use this and the flash concurrently.

      I jury rigged this viewfinder on a tripod socket attached accessory shoe to provide a direct view viewfinder for action cinematography. It works well with most of our lenses.

        Very small, yet precise. I use this viewfinder first off the camera to preview the area, and to scan for composition. I put it on the camera if the sun is too bright to use the lcd screen after I find my composition. Good purchse!

        Small Viewfinder

          Comments about VF-11 External Optical View Finder for Sigma DP1, DP1s, DP1x, DP1 Merrill Digital Cameras:

          When I got this in the mail I was amazed at how small it was, I knew it was small, but until I held it in my hand I didn't realize how small it was. That said the view is very bright and clear, and the frame lines are easy to see. It mounts easily to the camera, and the small size is actually nice, because it helps keep the camera compact. Accuracy seems okay, but not as accurate as the finder for the DP2.

          Comments about VF-11 External Optical View Finder for Sigma DP1, DP1s, DP1x, DP1 Merrill Digital Cameras:

          A very lovely addition for DP1 series users, its 28mm framing is very accurate for the camera. The main reason I purchase it is that DP series have such poor battery life, and not using LCD screen to frame(you have an option to turn LCD off)effectively extents the battery life. My recommendation for outdoor shot by using it is to set the the Focus to MF and always set the focus point a little bit less than infinity, in most of the good light condition, you can use a f/8 aperture, focus accuracy wouldn't be a matter.
