Olympus EE-1 reviews

EE-1 Dot Sight for OM-D E-M5 Mark II or Stylus 1 Camera is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives on my OM-D EM-1 Once the calibration with a camera's focus point is satisfied, and with proper camera settings, the sight facilitates more successful action photography. Have used it so far birding and at horse races. Tip: turn up shutter speed, use burst mode H, disable IS, use A/ISO, use A/WB, set EVF rate high, use C-AF, set f4 or better; PRACTICE. I can now do everything I once did with my heavy, expensive Canon high-end gear with predictable quality that satisfies me -- and my clients. Works on my OM-D EM-5 and E-PL7 bodies quite well also; it is NOT camera specific.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from EE-1 Dot Sight - For Other Cameras Too I've been using dot sights for years as an aid to finding and filming distant birds. These sights are usually designed for mounting on a firearm, so an adapter would be required to mount on a camera's hot/cold shoe. The EE-1 positions itself perfectly on my Panasonic GH4 and Panasonic GX8. It looks good up there and works well as advertised. I can't figure out why they don't advertise this device for use with ANY camera with a shoe mount. Other than that, compatibility is not an issue. PROS - Adjustable brightness reticle -- excellent - Adjustable vertical/horizontal calibration (no tools required) - Closes up and stays clean when not used CONS - Well built but a little plasticky (Don't sit on it.) - Doesn't auto-shut off after X minutes, or when closed - Pricey but worth it to me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sight with one small flaw This EE-1 sight fits on any camera with a hot shoe. Two Nikon user friends bought two sights after a look at mine and they are well pleased. The sight is easy to set up and even easier if a tripod is used. The ability to see 'around' the bird in flight makes flight photography much easier. Changing the focus points in camera from one small centre point to a 3 x 3 helps with getting the camera to focus reliably. The EE-1 sight is well made and appears sturdy. However, it does have one flaw which is not a deal breaker. The adjustment wheels are easily moved when tightening the hot shoe lock or the sight is loose in the pocket. A piece of Scotch tape applied after adjusting helps prevent maladjustment. I don't know how long the battery will last as I've only used the sight for a week of heavy use. A spare 2032 battery is easy to carry. A nice feature is that the unit switches off when the sight is closed. All in all I'm very pleased and my number of 'keeper' photographs has gone up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this Dot Sight when I buy another Olympus camera I was in Florida for nine days to photograph birds. Visited several state parks and rookeries. The Dot sight made my day so to speak. With it, you never have to take your eye away the sight, just keep shooting while you are tracking a bird in flight. At a rookery, it was much quicker to zero in on a specific bird or nest to get your picture and not take your off the sight. Got perfect shot every time. Well, almost every time. I have the Olympus OM-D E-M1 camera and this sight works exceptionally well on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW and WOW I saw this from a birder and decided to try it. I love shooting birds as they are flying but with my long lens it is sometimes hard to find and get them. Once you get it focused in with your camera, you can have it hit the birds in flight and have the camera focus it. Much easier than starting out at 150 and working up to 600 to get shots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Effective Eye-Opener My wife and I use the EE-1 Dot Sight on E-M5 Mark IIs primarily with the 75-300 Mark II and 40-150 F2.8 Pro and MC-14 teleconverter for wildlife - especially birds. But, we have found that the EE-1 also adds an unexpected capability to street shooting, museums, landscapes and family portraits. We would caution others that this device will not produce miracles - but it can increase your keeper rate. Combined with the IBIS of the E-M5 Mark II we find we are getting hand-held action shots that were more difficult before. With either CAF or SAF on burst mode and a fast shutter speed you'll be happy with the results. I'm retired military, have used various scopes and dot sights, and was already familiar with the concept - so it felt natural to use the EE-1 the first time out. It's just a different way of viewing subjects and frees up your sight pattern from the limitations of an EVF or LCD. You can view the target more unencumbered with both eyes at once; through and around the sight once you catch on - and will think this is a very worthwhile addition - and for more than just birding or sports. It has to be sighted in; do so by mounting it on your camera hot shoe then on a tripod and registering the small focus box on a distant target, then aligning the red dot reticle on the center of that same place. It works and is fun; even if you don't mount it exactly perfectly. Also, the flip-out upper cover will shield the sight from rain - unlike other cheaper open red dot sights, and will not snag in a bag as easily. A little pricey? Yes. But, remember it works and will extend your photo capability and can be used on any camera with a hot shoe. You will notice the quality construction. It is worth it because it allows you to see differently - and again, will increase your photo keeper rate with practice. The only real problem we're having with the EE-1 is that we have only one - and both want to use it. B&H had it to us in two days - typical of a great business.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, and works on almost any camera, not just Olympus!! This sight is great! I tried it out by using it to photograph both birds and airplanes in flight with my 300mm (600mm equivalent) MFT zoom lens. (In case you're concerned, this device does NOT project a laser light at the target.) Note that this sight should work on ANY camera that has a (hot or not) shoe aligned with the lens...it is not electrically connected to the camera at all. The only flaw I have noticed is that it's easy to disturb the alignment knobs when handling the device...but a little gaffer's tape solves that problem quickly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for wildlife I've been using the EE-1 with my E-M5 but it will work with any camera with a hot shoe or cold shoe for that matter. It is especially useful for sighting in moving objects but is also useful for stationary objects at long distance when it is difficult to sight in the objects. Don't know how I ever did without it.
