The Varavon ProFinder Set for Canon EOS 7D is a low-angle viewfinder for use with the EOS 7D DSLR. Featuring a completely optical viewfinder, no extra power sources are required. The first surface mirror flawlessly reproduces the camera's LCD and prevents double images (ghosting effect) from occurring; allowing for precise focus and composition. A mountable 3x magnification loupe is also included for even more detail.

The ProFinder is designed with a sunlight cover for clear monitoring in bright, outdoor conditions. A sponge seal is integrated into the viewfinder, blocking unnecessary light from reaching the LCD and also helping to minimize condensation during extended periods of use. The hinges incorporate free stop technology allowing them to remain open at any angle, providing maximum light protection. Using a lightweight, durable aluminum attachment plate, the viewfinder attaches to the rear of the camera quickly and easily.

        Comments about Varavon ProFinder Set for Canon EOS 7D:

        I am on my second one of these. It too broke exactly as the other reviewer here who provided photos; just as my first one broke. Same place. Same damage. And the first one was broken after only having used it for about a 20-min. test drive. They replaced the first one with apologies. They promise to replace this one and do so, again, with apologies. But I feel the design is so flawed it can't help but break again. As you can see in the picture the hinge is constructed with a pin held by cheap, brittle plastic. There should be a rod going through the entire unit (or construct it out of a stronger material. (C'mon. It's 2012. You can't open plastic bags anymore, they're so strong!). I was fooled into thinking this would be a quality product what with the extent of their equipment line; all Zacuto-like. Plus the foam gasket where it meets the camera, blocking out extraneous light, sounded unique amongst such devices. I mean the design of it is good but the construction value just kills it. When I was told this second one would be replaced I was also told they were coming out with an improved version in September. They didn't specify what that entailed but I told them I'd just as soon have my money back unless that improvement addressed this flaw.

          It would be a fine addition to your 7D equipment set...if t wasn't a piece of junk. My first one broke after just having it a few weeks and using it only once as a 20-min. test shoot. I complained to the company and they sent a replacement. Four months later and only about 8 hours of video shooting, I took it out of its (better-constructed) carrying case only to find it once again broken; exactly the same place, same damage: the plastic cylinder holding the hinge insert.

            Comments about Varavon ProFinder Set for Canon EOS 7D:

            I bought this and used it once before it broke. The hinge broke while I was trying to use it. I emailed Varavon's repair person in Los Angeles and they said to send it in, it is still covered under warranty. I packed it up and sent it. I got notifications that UPS attempted to deliver it 3 times to their "repair center" which is actually just an apartment, so UPS finally just left it at the door. Outstanding, my $300 piece of camera equipment. So, I email the Varavon repair person and another individual about the reciept of my Profinder. Nothing. So, I post on Facebook, I get a response that my new ProFinder will be sent in 1-2 days. I patiently waited 2 weeks. Still nothing. Well, finally, today, my Profinder came in, in a very poorly packaged envelope. I open the package to find my still broken Profinder but now it is even more messed up. The product itself, seems nice but it just isn't very durable. And obviously you can see my feelings about Varavon's warranty/repair service. I regret not buying a different product. Don't make my mistake.
