Canon 2882A001 reviews

Angle Finder C is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 160.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Sliced Bread I photograph subjects that are high in the sky, birds, aircraft, the moon etc. I do a lot of shooting with my camera mounted on a tripod and the Canon Angle Finder C has been on my list for a while. With it I no longer need to stoop down; contort my back; or get into some odd stance to center and/or follow my subject(s). It didn't take long for this finder to go from cute little gadget to necessity. It is easy to attach to the camera; gives a bright,tack-sharp image; toggles between 1.25X and 2.5X consistently; has a useful rubber eyecup; and rotates in 45 degree increments that permit the photographer to find a comfortable position. Now that I have used it, I wonder why I waited so long to buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little problem solver If you don't think you need it, don't buy it, if you know you need it, it's a great solution to the problem you have. If you have your camera close to the ground or tilted up, it saves cricked necks and in some cases allows you to see through the viewfinder at all. Perfectly fits my 5D Mark ii as supplied, easily and securely. I wondered about the 1.25x feeling odd but it doesn't, using a 90 deg angle finder takes a little while to get used to, a little like reversing looking over your shoulder, but then it's fine. Haven't had a need to use the 2.5x but just trying it out it seems very clear still. Very solidly built and like all the pro Canon stuff, well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make sure you really need it! Works great, fit my 60D perfectly - not too loose as some have reported, good optics. Only thing is that once I started my Macro workshop, I realized that with the 60D's articulating LCD screen and live view, I didn't really need it. Manual focusing is excellent with live view esp when on a tripod as you would have shooting macro. I suppose if I find that in bright light I have trouble focusing I might revisit. But then, perhaps a LCD viewing hood is the way to go. Not sure. Good product, but I just don't need it at this point so I returned it. As usual, shopping and returning with B&H is trouble free.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Angle Finder for Canon DSLRs I use the angle finder mainly for macro- and landscape work. Especially for macro work the 2.5 magnification is very helpful. Of course it only magnifies the center portion of the viewfinder but usually for macro this is perfect. For landscape work I like the angle finder with my manual focus lenses as the magnification offers me greater control over focus. It is very well built and easy to handle. If you use a 5D MarkIII or the 1Dx note that the adapter piece that comes with it is hidden in the pouch. So when I got that thing I first thought I'll have to get a differenct adapter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for Macro photography with a tripod I got this to take advantage of the magnification that this accessory provide to the viewfinder to be able to focus more accurately for product/macro photography. I think this is more a film camera accessory rather than a digital camera accessory, Live View and it's zooming facility is probably enough to check the accuracy of the focusing on a digital camera body. It might be still worth it in certain photographic applications that I have not personnally encountered so far. It is well made as per Canon tradition; this accessory will probably suit more the 65mm macro rather than the 100mm F2.8 or 50mm F2.5 Macro lenses. So basically a great item but not as useful as I originally thought, but a good buy nevertheless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A big help I bought this accessory with a certain degree of trepidation; I really wasn't sure if it was going to be useful enough to justify the price. Still, after doing contortions and squinting into the eyepiece of a camera set up close to the ground for some macro photography, I felt that there had to be a better way and perhaps the Angle Finder C would provide it. It did. The device is very useful for avoiding uncomfortable positions and thus being able to concentrate more on the image and less on my about-to-give-out back. The image through the viewer is clear, and the 2.5x magnification option helps greatly with manual focusing. I now find myself using it increasing for more conventional shooting at head height on a tripod; being able to look into the viewfinder from the side or slightly above or below adds a welcome alternative. The unit seems reasonably well made without being strikingly solid or heavy. It fits easily onto the eyecup holder of my Rebel XT, 30D or 40D, and stays securely in place once installed. There's easy rotational movement of the side arm through 360 degrees, although the arm only 'clicks' into position for limited number of angles, but enough for all purposes I have yet used the Angle Finder. The eyecup is comfortable, certainly as comfortable as those on the binocular microscope I use at work. I would say that my long time use of microscopes makes me take to the Angle Finder much more easily than might be otherwise; using it is very similar to using a monocular microscope. It would be nice if the unit 'swung' out to provide angle options outside of 90 degrees to the camera's line of sight, but I imagine the optics required for this would add considerably to the size and price. As it is, regardless of where the Angle Finder is positioned in its perpendicular motion, the image you see through it is always of that of a conventional view through the view finder. Using it, I tend to forget that I am actually looking through an extra set of glass elements, making it essentially transparent in use as well as in optics.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well-built This was purchased to replace another vendor's product, in which the switchable magnification eventually failed to hold focus. The Canon model is solidly built, and the adjustments are tight, but very smooth. For macro work, and low-angle, close-to-the-ground shots with a wide-angle lens, it's an absolute necessity. The only problem I have with the product is the 1.25x low-end magnification, which cuts off a significant visible area in the viewfinder: plan your compositions accordingly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Angle Finder saves time and your back Excellent tool for low angle and vertical composition. Length of finder could be slightly taller for use with a Pocket Wizard or other transmitters that have a vertical orientation from camera hot shoe with horizontal composition, where the finder is not tall enough to clear a PW antenna. Magnification features make for a better overall view. Fit to camera could be tighter, more secure. Modified contact points for a more positive fit to camera.
