Key Features

  • Attaches via Accessory Shoe
A simple means for eye-level viewing, the black 28mm Metal Brightline Optical Viewfinder from Voigtlander is an auxiliary shoe-mounted finder used to approximate your field of view when shooting with a 28mm focal length lens in the 35mm film/full-frame format. The 0.43x-magnification viewfinder's brightlines are meant to represent the appropriate field of view when focused at infinity, however a dotted set of lines can also be used to compensate for parallax when working from a focused distance of 3'. Additionally, it has a high eyepoint design to enable eyeglasses wearers to clearly see the corners of the frame for improved compositional accuracy.

question

Will this autofocus on the Ricoh or is it primarily designed for infinity compositions?
Asked by: Dan
It just shows you framelines. Generally the framing will only be accurate for objects beyond 8 meters or so. It is just a window into the world with frame lines. On the ricoh it is great for street style snap focus/hyperfocal distance shooting.

question

Is there a rubber eye cup made for this viewfinder or is there one that adapts well to it? Many thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
I don't believe there is an eyecup made for the viewfinder. I have had no need for an eyecup since I'me been using the viewfinder for the past six months. I do wear glasses and so far I have noticed no scratching of the lens of the eyeglasses nor has there been a problem seeing the complete field of view.

question

Will this work on a samsung nx300?
Asked by: Anonymous
This viewfinder is an optical finder, and can mount on the NX300's hotshoe. As to how effective it will be for you will depend on what lens you are using. This is designed to give the field of view of a 28mm lens in 35mm/Full-frame format.
