Canon 3357B001 overview

  • 1Description

This Eg series Super Precision Matte Eg-S Interchangeable Focusing Screen from Canon provides easier manual focusing through your viewfinder on subjects in low light when using lenses with a wide aperture between f/1.8 to f/2.8.

This "S" type focusing screen works by decreasing the focus of the slightly out-of-focus areas around your in-focus subject for a sharper contrast.

Compatible with Canon EOS 5D Mk II and 6D
Not recommended for ordinary zoom lenses with maximum aperture slower than f/2.8 as the screen will appear dark and grainy
Focusing screens are delicate and should only be handled using the included gripping tool for installation

    Canon 3357B001 reviews

    Super Precision Matte Eg-S Interchangeable Focusing Screen is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 134.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh yeah this is what I was missing! I was having a conversation with a video guy the other day and he was surprised when I told him I shoot AF most of the time. I told him it was way better than I am. And since my camera is never on a tripod, live view isn't a solution. Now that I have this screen that is going to change. I shoot mostly L primes and the lack of AF points in the 5dII usually lave me hanging and with the stock screen I couldn't focus that well manually but this Eg-s I have a new love for my 5DII. Even when using AF I feel more confident that it has hit the spot. I think I held off for so long because I was afraid of the process of changing it but it is really easy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with Fast Lenses Swapped out the screen for this on my 6D last night. Very quick and easy process. Very noticeable difference using my 85mm 1.2. Depth of field is much shallower and allowed me to get consistently accurate manual focus on still subjects. Will be helpful for 35mm 1.4 as well. The only negative is that viewfinder was much darker using my 40mm 2.8 granted it was in my dimly lit living room. Am excited to use this since the 6D has a very good center focusing point but not so strong outer ones. Was getting tired of having to focus/recompose all the time and missing focus when shooting wide open. Highly recommended only if you primarily use lenses f/2 and faster.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Night and day with 50L I got this largely for increasing focus accuracy for portrait and wedding work with the 50L+5D II and I have to say it's stellar - the difference is immediately noticeable and quite dramatic. Installation is straight-forward and requires no special knowledge. The darkening with lenses whose maximum aperture is darker than f/2.8 is noticeable and can be slightly problematic with f/5.6 lenses at dusk, where the viewfinder becomes quite dark. Nothing Live View doesn't fix, though, and using Live View isn't a huge drama for the landscape work I do. It's not hard to change screens back if you wanted to swap them in and out at will. Would buy again.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't bite what you can't swallow... I've been hearing about this piece of equipement for quite a while now so I figured I would give it a try. I shoot most of my photographs with an aperture ranging from f/1.4 to f/2.2 and was told that this would make a big difference in order to improve my manual focusing skills. The screen is easy to install but it only takes a few snaps to realise that.... there really isn't that big of a difference after all with the screen. At first I was putting the blame on the environment lighting or this or that... thinking I could convince myself that it would show some kind of usefulness sooner or later... but that time never came, at least, not yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sometimes MANUAL FOCUS is just better... Fast lenses, bad light, off center composition, shallow depth of field all require something more than AF, and this is your solution. Yes the 5D MkII has improved AF over the Mk1, but sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands. For this the Eg-S screen is essential, the image just snaps in and out of focus, just like in the old days, when AF was a fantasy. Get one, use it, your photos will be better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best add-ons for a 6D This is one of the best additions for a 6D (or 5Dii), especially for the price. Some reviews aren't so enthusiastic, but they tend to mention that it's not a replacement for a split prism. I'll take their word for it, so moving on. This screen makes it *much* easier to manually focus on a f/2.8 lens or faster. It also makes it easy to see if AF is focusing on the right thing without checking the shot after you take it. Note that it does make the viewfinder noticeably darker at f/4 and up. If you shoot those lenses in bright environments or outdoors, it's not an issue. However, if you shoot with f/4 or slower lenses with indoor lighting, it could be distracting. Remember to set the focusing screen in your custom functions for auto exposure to work properly. This focusing screen is one of the reasons I'll be keeping my 6D for a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indispensible accessory It is absurd that Canon does not supply S screens as original equipment. I only focus manually, and would not use this camera without this screen. It is not possible to focus manually with any accuracy through the viewfinder of the 5D mkII using the original screen, and I found the same to be true of the 40D. Test it yourself by trying to focus through the finder with the A screen and then looking at the 10X image on the LCD. They probably won't agree. What is the point of using an SLR if you can't focus accurately through the viewfinder? $2500 camera, but you'll need to buy this accessory, if you want to be able to focus the lens yourself. Ignore what Canon says about lenses with a maximum aperture of f:2.8 or larger appearing darker with this screen than with the original A screen. Yes, the finder image will be darker, but at least it will be accurate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon EG_S Focusing Screen I use this on my 5D Mark II to improve manual focus through viewfinder. This screen helps to enhance the difference between in-focus and out-of-focus areas, which makes manual focus (through viewfinder) possible. I tried it indoor at night. Manual focus is possible with regular indoor LED light at even at f1.2 on static object. My lenses are all f2.8 and faster so I don't have to worry about dark focusing screen on slow lens (slower than f4.0). One thing is not so great is manual focus in bight daylight. Still need some practice to get used to this screen in order to get tack sharp shot.
