Diy z-finder

I have made a DIY zfinder. It is explainded on this video: YouTube - Z-Finder DIY
I use achromat diopters. Consist of two lenses in order to reduce distortion and chromatic aberrations. That is why photo lenses are composed of several and not one only lens (singlet). The achromat comes from a pair of small binoculars. The body comes from a cheap slide viewer. The video is of poor quality because it is made with a mobile phone in order to simulate the human eye. If you use a big camera youŽll only see a kind of tunnel because of the exit pupil of the viewfinder.
