    Canon EVF-DC1 reviews

    EVF-DC1 Electronic Viewfinder for PowerShot G1 X Mark II, PowerShot G3 X, or EOS M3 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 67.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EVF-DC1 more useful than I imagined I bought the EVF-DC1 for my G1XMK2 thinking it would help out in direct sunlight conditions. When I got it and started using it I realized that: 1) Yes, it is very helpful in bright sunlight. 2) It really helps me concentrate on careful image composition and framing. 3) The fact that it tilts through approximately 90 degrees allows you to pick a comfortable viewing angle even if you place the camera on a table top or bend down to take a shot of a low-positioned object. The diopter adjustment works well too. The display is very clear and bright. Automatically switches off when your eye is away from the finder to conserve power.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Serves it's purpose well I really like having the ability to swivel the eye piece depending on how you are shooting. It is extremely expensive for what it is thus the 3 star rating. It works as a 5 star product. This is one of the many things that Canon should have built into the PowerShot G3X but did not. If you are shooting in bright sunlight (I live in Tucson AZ so that is what we have 300 plus days a year) then either this or some sort of a hood over the viewing screen is needed. I am glad I bought it even though it was a hefty bite on the wallet. Thanks B&H for the super fast delivery.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes all the difference I bought this to compliment my G1x MkII and to turn it into a fully functioning landscape camera. The G1x is a fantastic camera but one doesn't always want to look at the LCD on the back and for a lot of shots a proper viewfinder is the only way to go. The image is bright and clear and contains all the information accessible on the back screen. Only two downsides. There is a button on the side of the unit that changes it from sensing your eye and changing from back to viewfinder to just being viewfinder all the time but, if you change it to just VF it pretty quickly switches back off its own accord. Secondly, I wish there were a lock button to stop it moving up to an angled view. It does that of its own accord quite frequently. Good, solid construction and the lock button to lock it on the camera is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EVF-DC1 is very good i am a fairly serious amateur who has used Nikon SLR and DSLR cameras and lenses since the days of the Nikormat. I purchased the Canon G1X Mark II as a trial and found it to be an excellent choice for travel and instances when I did not want to lug my DSLR. The LCD monitor was difficult to see in sunlight, and especially for fine focusing. I was hesitant to buy the EVF-DC1 viewfinder because of its steep price, but after reading reviews about it purchased one form B&H. For me this changed a very good camera into an excellent camera. It is easy to use, and only functions when the camera is brought to the eye covering the optics. Simultaneously, the LCD monitor on the rear of the camera goes dark. When the eye is removed from the viewfinder, the LCD monitor activates. The viewfinder aids tremendously in composing and focusing, the latter particularly helpful in macro shots where fine focusing is critical. In short, the high purchase price was money well spent. Any hesitancy about purchasing the camera dissipated once the viewfinder was added.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from EVF is not designed with older people in mind The viewfinder has a diopter adjustment of -3 to +1, which is fine for younger people; but older people usually need an adjustment of +2 or more. I need +2.5 and Canon makes no diopter adjustment lenses for it, so if you are an older person you will have to use your eye glasses. You also can't use a big flash and the viewfinder at the same time. If you are OK with these limitations it is a good EVF: well made, bright, high resolution, it tilts up & the rear LCD turns off when brought to the eye.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why an accessory for M3? This accessory works as it its intended, but it makes the camera less streamlined and care must be used if left connected to the M3 when putting into and pulling out of a camera bag. As to why Canon chose to produce the M3 without an integrated viewfinder is truly beyond my comprehension, but to their credit, this electronic viewfinder dos work well (so far). I have to commend Canon/B&H for at least ,when I purchase my M3, including this item for a nominal cost. If not for this deal I would not have purchased the EVF or the M3. I consider it a necessity for serious use of the M3. This accessory should be packaged and included by Canon with their M3. In my opinion, a mirrorless camera without a EVF is not a serious camera. Better yet, Canon should incorporate a EVF in the M3.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The addition of this madea great product even better! I purchased a Canon M3 mirrorless camera and it does not come with a viewfinder. Composition must be done using the LCD backscreen. And while this is satisfactory in most situations, I found that in bright sunlight, seeing the subject on the backscreen was difficult. The addition which slides on the hot shoe, solved this problem and made shooting the M3 more like the Canon60D that I was used to using. One feature I especially like about the viewfinder is it stays off until you get your eye up to it. Then it turns on until your eye is away. This helps save on battery power. If use to using a viewfinder, I recommend getting this one for your Canon M3 mirrorless. You won't be sorry you did!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I Need on a Bright Day I have never used an EVF before and decided to splurge when I got my G1 X II. I am trying to train myself to remember to use it as I have gone so long without such a device. It truly helps with focus and composition. Very helpful with Macro close-ups. It is very small which I like. What I don't like is the price tag - very expensive and I hope I get my money's worth out of it. Also the fact that it can't be used with an external flash.
