It's too close to the screen, but I make it work.

It's too close to the screen for my eyesight. Even with the extension attached, I still wish there was a another 3/4 inch on the extension because it's too close to the LCD screen to see clearly for me. I realize I can unscrew the optical eyecup back to adjust a little more, but it's screwed out as far as it can go. I've even added popsicle sticks in between the extension and the viewfinder, and taped the popsicle sticks in place with black tape. But even still, it's not pulled far enough back and I still wish there was another 1/4 added to adjust for my eyesight (I have slightly far sided vision even though I can still read without glasses). But I make it work. I just don't use the magnets at all. I just hold this LCD viewfinder up to the LCD screen and hold it to where I can see the screen clearly, and that works for me. At least I can check things on the screen easily with it and I don't have to mess with the magnet bracket. I'm honestly perfectly fine with not using the magnets and it not being actually attached to to the camera. I just keep it around my neck the whole time for when I need to check my screen. That being said, I'm so used to using this at every shoot that I feel naked without it around my neck whenever I'm shooting video or photos. Whether it's this brand or another brand, I feel everyone needs one of these!

Bought to use while shooting IR photos during the bright sun light. Helps with viewing my image in live view to check focus. Strong made and fits my Nikon D800. yes I would buy this again.

An Interesting Idea

Magnifying an image on an LCD Viewfinder as a focusing aid is an interesting idea. However, the degree of magnification was too high to be of any practical use: The resulting image appeared fuzzy and indistinct. Happily, I returned to using the camera's conventional viewfinder.

Just what I needed
