      Comments about iDC Photo Video SYSTEM ZERO Viewfinder and Camera Plate for Canon T3i:

      It's nearly impossible to shoot outdoor video on a DSLR using the LCD screen, but the IDC viewfinder makes it so easy. The camera plates installs quickly and allows the addition of your tripod plate underneath.

      CONS: The viewfinder has some distortion around the edges, but minimal. It requires a hex wrench to install and remove. Why not just use a flathead screw?

      Overall the IDC does a nice job with the T3i. Not quite as nice as the Zacuto, but it's considerably less expensive.
