Elvid OV-250 overview

  • 1Description

Be confident with your focusing by using the OptiView 250 3.2" LCD Viewfinder to magnify your camera's display by 300%. This viewfinder is compatible with most 3.0" and 3.2" displays with either 3:2 or 4:3 aspect ratios. It also blocks light from hitting the screen, ensuring crisp, clear viewing even on bright days. For enhanced operation, it features a quick release plate with a 1/4"-20 screw for mounting to the camera along with an interchangeable and adjustable rail system to dial in compatibility with your camera. The attached short rail works with most cameras, while the included long rail enables use with cameras featuring battery grips.

Comfort is key with the use of a soft eyecup that can be used with your left or right eye, as well as eyeglasses, and the ability to adjust the diopter from ±1.5. During use, a latch on the viewfinder allows you to quickly flip up the rear half for access to touch screens or when normal 1:1 viewing is desired while not giving up crucial shading from ambient light. Additionally, the quick release plate also features six 1/4"-20 threads for use with tripods or other rigs

    OptiView 250 3.2" LCD Viewfinder is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Best video addition! I love this product! It makes shooting video on my 5d mark iii so much easier and more precise! I love how it mounts to the bottom, allows other mounts, and it can be quickly and easily released!! It's a fantastic product that is really well made, and I recommend it without hesitation. Possibly one of my favorite purchases in a while!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunshine Beater The OptiView viewfinder made it easy to video using my Nikon d750 in bright light. Additionally, I do a lot of hand holding my camera as most of the videos I do are action/sports videos that do not lend themselves to a static position on a tripod. I might add that I use a lot of my old lenses which are fast and heavy and trying to use the viewfinder and holding the camera out in front with a heavy lens is nearly impossible where the OptiView allows you to hold the camera in a natural, braced position and use it as a viewfinder. I like it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Helps! This is almost what I needed. I've been having problems focusing video with the small LCD screen on the camera and seeing still pictures on the LCD screen in bright sunlight. I was hoping this would solve both problems but when I want to take stills, I have to use live view because it blocks the ability to use the view finder. For video, this thing brings it up close and personal and I am able to accomplish what I need. So for the video solution I love it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Optic View 250 review Enjoy the magnification. Great outdoors in bright sunshine. Also I like to flip-up the eye piece and view clips on the back screen. I haven't had time to do a lot of work with it. But what I have used it for worked fine. Wish the unit fit a little tighter to camera itself.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it but When you attach the viewfinder to the camera it does not butt up against the screen squarely. Top tilts away from the screen allowing in light. This could be corrected , I believe, if the bracket that holds the viewfinder was stronger,heavier metal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I needed this. Great for DSLR video. Fits my Nikon D750. Side rails are metal, although they look like plastic in the photo. Base plate will accept other attachments with 6 holes to choose from for a custom fit. Great magnification, and very clear. My one quibble is that it does not fit flush against the top of the screen. This has not affected viewing yet, but I can imagine it would be a problem in bright sunlight.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad It's works well on my GH4. The image is not as clear as it is on the LCD screen, but the magnification is great. I don't mind loosing some of the color of the LCD screen, so I can make sure everything is in focus. The eye piece works perfectly for blocking out the sunlight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear and accurate focus at last! Finally can see the action well enough to pull good focus! Well made. Only issue I have is after looking through it for almost and hour my eyes get all out of whack for like 20 minutes. Could be just me.
