The Olympus EE-1 Dot Sight is a shoe-mount dot sight ideal for super-telephoto photography of wild birds. The sight offers a center aiming dot with adjustable brightness and position to enable fast subject acquisition and tracking. You'll be able to tell whether your aim is right on target or slightly off without looking through the camera's viewfinder or using the monitor. The EE-1 Dot Sight fits right into the camera's hot shoe and has a slide lever opening mechanism. Built for durability, it is both dust and splashproof.

Does anybody know why the list of compatible cameras does not include the OM-D E-M5 Mark III?
The Olympus EE-1 Dot Sight came out before OM-D E-M5 Mark III was released. That is why it is only listing the older camera. This will work on the OM-D E-M5 Mark III, and most any camera with a standard hotshoe.

will it work with a Sony handycam, specifically the AX53 with strong zoom to track fast flying birds or RC planes which may be difficult to see in its flimsy EVF ?
While it can work on a camera with a hot shoe, it hasn't been tested specifically with the Sony AX53. Your results may vary.

I don't get what this is supposed to do. It doesn't connect to the camera in any way? it doesn't control the auto focus of the lens? What exactly does it do?
It doesn't connect to the camera or its focus system in any way. All it does is provide a wide enough view through the sight that you can point your camera with a very long focal length lens at the subject accurately enough that (when the sight is properly calibrated to the camera/lens combo in use and approximate subject distance) that the subject will appear in the field of view of that lens. It makes it easier to get a really long lens lined up with your subject. It functions like the "finder scope" on an astronomical telescope which helps you get your subject within the field of view of the main telescope, if that helps.

So, what's in the EE-1 Dot Sight box and what accessories are recommended?
Think of it as a Leica ROSOL Frame Finder, BUT with a battery and an LED spot.

How well does it stay in alignment when out in the field? I have my camera on a sling strap when hiking and it tends to bump around. If I bump the EE-1 will it stay in alignment?
No, alignment is often necessary in the field.
