Canon EVF-DC2 Reviews

Pricey but Invaluable

By Larry

This should have been included with the camera to begin with. I'm old-school, and a real viewfinder is such an ingrained part of my photography that it is something I simply had to have. It works well, even with tri-focal glasses, and this will encourage me to use my M6 a lot more than I have. Way overpriced at $200.00, however.

I attached to camera and was pleasantly surprised to find the unit turns on automatically as well as with the on switch. I have not used the camera to actually take pictures but did try out the viewfinder mounted on the camera. The info I saw via the viewfinder was clear and sharp. I am anxious to try the equipment out when we get some dry, warmer weather. We have been sheltering as we jut got our second vaccine shot recently.

Absolute Must Add-on for G3x

This viewfinder is so great with the G3x! It makes focusing on birds so much better. It is incredibly sharp and bright and I like that it automatically switches to viewfinder when your eye comes close.

Necessary purchase if you are using M6 Mk ii outdoors.

works as advertised. Can be adjusted to your eyes. A must for outdoor photography, although it should be included with the camera.

Must have for the M6 ii

By Baruch
Rated 5 out of 5

I've waited for the M50 ii, but when I understood it was futile, I have decided to invest in this excellent EVF for the M6 ii I have. Without it was totally useless for me and now this became my first camera. Still I miss the fully articulating screen but the better low light performance is impotant.

Great add for my camera

By Kevin
Rated 5 out of 5

It is a bit pricey, but even in the few short weeks I've had it, it has helped me out considerably. I purchased this for my M6. While I like the large display on the back of the camera, there are times when it is impossible to see it clearly such as on bright sunny days. This is when the EVF comes in very handy. I get a nice clear picture plus all the details that I'd normally have on the large display. It snaps on very easily and locks into place so I don't have to worry about it falling off. Definitely a worthwhile addition to my gear.

Essential for Long Lenses

By Robert
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-28

With my M6II and 100L and 55-250 STM (long lenses) this EVF is essential. I'm also a right eye shooter and you can set the screen up to touch and drag on the right side of the screen. The EVF sticks out far enough from the camera that my face doesn't disrupt the touch and drag. The dial on the EVF to adjust for your eyesight is really nice. I couldn't shoot long lenses accurately without this EVF. Also removing the EVF allows a smaller setup with lenses like my m32 F1.4 where I can use the back screen instead of the EVF. Highly recommended to get this EVF!

The Canon EVF-DC2 Electronic Viewfinder will only work with EOS M6/M3,and the PowerShot G1 X Mk II/G3 X. It cannot be used with other cameras, although the hot shoe connection will physically hold the viewfinder, the connection will not allow for electronic communication.

The write up on the EVF-DC2 says that it has "dioptric adjustment." Is the diopter a replaceable dioptric lens, or built-in? If built-in, what is the adjustable range? (The write up on the Canon EVF-DC1 states that it is -3 to +1; is the DC2 the same?)
