    From the packaging to the build this product is great! I used with both my 5D mkii and mkiii and with the feature of moving the plate it is easy to adjust from one camera to the other. I never use both at the same time so this option was a must for me instead of buying two separate viewfinders. The feature for low angle shooting is great, never thought I'd use it that much but work perfectly! It adds another level of story telling. the Eye cup is great not to hard nor soft and the build quality like i mention is up to my high standards.Another great feature is the base plate has a mount for the tripod mount and with the lock hole available its more sturdy and stays in place than if I just mount the camera to the tripod mount. All in all this is a MUST to ensure quality and better the work flow! Highly recommend to anyone!

    I just used this item on it's debut Wedding Video shoot. It fits my 5D MkIII very well, feels sturdy and well built. If I had a couple of 'cons', I'd mention the top door, which flipped up constantly whenever my camera strap brushed it, and the optics seemed a little less sharp (more 'hazy') than I expected for the price. It does feel more durable than the more budget Cavision equivalent on my other body though, and I like the option to lift the whole camera (for above-the-crowd shots), whilst looking through the inverted eyepiece.

    Once properly adjusted it turned my T2i into a useable video cam. Well made and should hold up well. Only negative I can find would be a less than ideal diopter.

      use pro video/photography
      the great thing about it is it really helps with follow focus and really pulling a sharp image every time from the downward looking position to looking through the optic. really solid design nose bag too.

      the not so great thing about it is ?

        Comments about Varavon Multi Finder LCD Viewfinder Uni Set:

        This is a great device. I thought about buying a cheaper product, but this one proved to be the best as it affixes securely to the camera without some kind of cheesy rubber bands or magnets. It feels totally solid and does a great job. My only complaint is that it blocks the battery door and each time I need to put in a new battery on the T3i, I have to remove it from the camera.

              I am using this viewfinder to shoot video with both a Canon 7D with battery grip and 5D MII. The best part of this product is the versatility to move it from camera to camera. With the included wrenches the unit quickly adjusts and fits snug.
              The only thing that could be improved is the diopter adjustment. Other than that the product is well built and is worth every penny.

              Obviously the best thing of this viewfinder is the possibility to watch your lcd even from the top of the camera. But the construction it's not so good for the price you pay. Novertheless it's worth buying if you use slider with your dslr.

                  I have a Canon 5D that I use to shoot video. This viewfinder is excellent for exterior shooting. It is easy to use, sturdy and offers excellent clarity. I'd highly recommend for anyone shooting in sunlight situations. I had another brand previously that didn't work nearly as well. It was difficult to attach and the rubber seal would fall off all the time. I am very happy with this purchase!
