Elvid OV-150 overview

  • 1Description

Dial in your focus with ease thanks to the 3x magnification provided by the OptiView 150 3.0" LCD Viewfinder from Elvid. The viewfinder enlarges the LCD by 300% using multi-coated optical glass, ensuring sharp imagery from edge-to-edge, and it is compatible with most 3.0" screens with either a 3:2 or 4:3 aspect ratio. The OptiView 150 also blocks light from hitting the screen, enabling clear, contrasty viewing even in bright sunlight. In addition, the rear half can flip up and out of the way for when magnification is not required.

For comfort, the OptiView 150 uses a soft eyecup that can be used with either your left or right eye, and with eyeglass. An adjustable ±1.5 diopter will further help ensure a clear image. Mounting is handled with a plastic mounting frame which the viewfinder simply snaps onto. Also, this frame features optical glass to protect your LCD screen. Finally, it includes a 17" lanyard for keeping it by your side and ready to go when you are moving about.

    OptiView 150 3.0" LCD Viewfinder is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous addition and makes focusing easy I am using this on a Sony a7r. My only problem with it is the screen sometimes flips my screen open when I don't want it to be open. I now know to use my thumb or pressure on my eyepiece to keep it in place.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting experiment I like using a viewfinder and have trouble seeing with LCDs, this seems to solve the problem.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good in theory...application lacking! If only the adhesion to the screen had been equal to the optics, this would have been a winner. As it stands, it's more of a *! The more costly options sadly are still the better ones.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No regrets of purchase Merchandise arrived as stated, easily assembled, worked good. The LCD screen is slightly blurr with the 3x magnification. Would like option to get 1x. Great to see the LCD screen on bright sunny day. Will recommend.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great function but bad product This idea for this is definitely strong. I can shoot video outside and it even helps stabilize when its against my face. The problem is the quality of the product. The optics are okay but it is poorly built. It comes with a sticky adapter to go over your LCD. This sticky is permanently attached. If you take it off, it will lose it's stick and will not work. Because of this you must leave it on, making your touchscreen useless. Additionally, the sticky mounting frame isn't even that good and often falls off.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from ? The pkg arrived w/the box open. Out tumbelled all of the pieces. Nothing intact, the glass just lying at the bottom of the heap. I've tried several ways to make the glass stay in the appropriate place in the viewfinder, but it falls out. This product is not working for me.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for me, but maybe not worth your money My D700 doesn't have a touch screen, so I didn't mind covering it with the glass pane on the mounting plate; however, the adhesive on the mounting plate is extremely poor. After cleaning my screen and mounting this product, I took it outside to test out. THE WIND BLEW THE WHOLE ASSEMBLY OFF! I peeled off all the factory adhesive and cut strips of 3M Extreme Double Sided Mounting Tape, which has held up much better. Down side - I don't expect it to ever come off till I use adhesive remover. While the eye-cup swivels nicely to change which eye you want to use, I think it is too loose and also pulls off too easily. I wish I could give this product more stars, cause it otherwise does what it advertises very well. The flip up mechanism is nice. The 3x magnification is nice. It seals out all light very well. But with such poor adhesive on the mounting plate, it fails to do its job straight out of the box. I guess you get what you pay for, but since I use the MB-D10 grip and the RRS L-Bracket, I cannot use any option which mounts from the bottom of the camera.
