I am aiming to purchase an LCD loupe so that I can more effectively use Live View for manual focussing (especially with my TS-E lens) outside in bright sunlight.
In my net research so far I've encountered products ranging from a US$6.95 adapted slide viewer(freight free for US citizens) to the US$1000 Zacuto EVF Pro and, hey, I don't do enough video work to warrant the outlay for the latter.
I've decided to bypass the Hoodman Cinema Kit 3.0 Pro which does have some useful features
for its price but I don't like the strap method Hoodman uses to attach the loupe to the LCD screen.
So far, I've narrowed the list to the Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 2.5x ($385) and the LCDVF 2.0 ($148).
I flicked the Zacuto 3.0x as a number of people say that it produces vignetted corners. The LCDVF
is less than half the price of the Zacuto 2.5x.
The Zacuto does have a dioptre adjustment; the LCDVF does not. I do wear reading glasses. Should this be the deciding factor?
I would be grateful to hear from anyone who has used either or both of these products (especially spec wearers).
