It allows you to focus on your subject more easily and also blocks out excess light when working outdoors in broad daylight, eliminating glare and giving you better overall visibility. An adjustable diopter ring moves the primary lens forward or back to help bring your image into focus if necessary. This feature is especially helpful for those who wear corrective lenses.

XP PhotoGear XPV32 reviews

MagView XPV32 LCD Viewfinder for DSLR Cameras is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for Everyone, But Maybe for You The description for this leaves out a few important things. First, it comes with a thin metal frame you attach to your LCD screen with double side adhesive. Then six magnets inlayed into the edge of the MagView attract the metal frame to hold the viewfinder in place. This arrangement works pretty good and the viewfinder detaches very easily when you don't need it. The down side is for articulated LCDs like on my Canon 60D; the frame has some thickness and prevents closing the screen up against the back of the camera. If you push hard enough, you could break the hinge. I ended up removing the frame (it came off cleanly) after realizing the danger.The second thing overlooked is the viewfinder splits in half to form a simple sun shade. Just squeeze it in the middle, top to bottom, and the outside half snaps off. For some situations, this could be all you need to see the LCD clearly.In use, the XVP32 works really well. The whole LCD filled my field of view and the focus was reasonably sharp from edge to edge. The diopter screw is a crude mechanism which, on the good side, will probably prevent it from being knocked out of focus. I was hoping the MagView would eliminate the need for me wearing reading glasses to see the screen (I'm pretty old and have lost my near focus). I guess my eyes are really bad - without my glasses, the diopter ran out of screw about 5/8 from where it needed to be. Oh well, maybe you'll be luckier.Another thing I wanted to see is how easy it is to check manual focus in Live View. Usually I can't see the screen well enough and need to magnify it in the camera to check focus before and after a shot. As it turns out, with the MagView, I can see the screen nicely with my glasses on and avoid the extra magnifying step. This should save me lots of time. It also seemed to help me sharpen my manual focus while shooting video, and I could actually imagine getting good at it! I'll probably re-install the frame the next time I run into sunlight or focusing issues, and just learn to live without turning the screen inward. This is my first articulating screen and I got by just fine with exposed screens on previous cameras. Finally, the eyecup is very comfortable. The bottom line is: if you are jonesing for one of these rigs, given the price, this might be a bargain! Besides, it's hard to put a price on something that actually helps you improve the composition of your pictures and video.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost, but not quite! I have been looking for a device like this for some time and thought that I had found it. However when I unpacked it and tried to fit the magnetic attachment to the D600 viewfinder, I found that it was too thick to allow the viewfinder protector cover to remain in place. It would have had to glued directly to the viewfinder. I found this to be unacceptable, since if it had to be removed in the future the viewfinder would have been damaged. In addition without the hood in place, the viewfinder would be unprotected. I would still like to have one of these devices that does not have these drawbacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I own a canon 60D this viewfinder magview works perfectly to film. only improvement i could suggest would be to have stronger magnets as right now if you hit a little too hard it falls off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The viewfinder works amazingly the glue does not I originally tried to glue the square magnetic viewfinder holder to the back but after setting it all night the viewfinder and the magnetic square fell off when I tried it the next morning. Luckly this system is only a square piece of magnet and not the sticky screen that goes over your viewer that many other systems use. I superglued the magnetic square to the camera around the edge of my viewfinder. A permanent solution but one that works perfectly. I lost no functionality in my camera and kept the screen. so 5 stars for the actual viewfinder and 1 for the glue that holds it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from QC not so good I just used mine for the first time this afternoon at a little gathering. It was great until one of the magnets came out of the housing. I will epoxy it back in and tug on the others to make sure they are all secure. It was on of the top magnets so the unit fell to the ground. I did not have the strap around my neck at the time. I will from now on.
