Please suggest me what I can do

Hi Guys,
I have the T2i and I just bought and arrive today the new loop LCDVF 3:2,very beatifull and useful...but the problem is that I am farsighted and there is not any kind of possibility to change the parameters, so what I see is out of Focus!!!I also put a pair of glass that I use when I read but is still out of focus.
So, what Can I do to use it, if I can use it?
Thanks
Gianni

I had to return mine for the same reason. I ended up getting a Genus which worked for my eyes.

There's a guy that made a video on how to add a dioper to the LCDVF... without any "major surgery." Forget if it's on Vimeo or YouTube. I think he uses close-up lenses, based upon his reading glasses strength.

You could always take the glass out... I bought mine mainly to use in bright sunlight. The magnification glass was just a bonus, but not essential IMO.

Re: Please suggest me what I can do

Best solution for me was the Hoodman Cinema Pro Kit, adjustable diopter, 3x eyepiece, on and off in seconds and adjusts to other cameras quickly.

I avoided it for a long time because it looked "klunky" to me, but once I started using it I found it to be the most convenient and fast solution.

I "swap it around" between a T2i, 7D, and now 60D.

You adjust to your eyesight by turning the eyepiece on the Hoodloupe to "focus". There is a limit to the adjustment so if you normally wear eyeglasses you are best off wearing them while looking through the eyepiece, the rubber eyecup may get in the way so I fold it down.

Here is a link: Cinema Kit Pro-Hoodman Corporation

Re: Please suggest me what I can do

I found with mine that it worked when I put on my off the shelf reading glasses. So I took an old pair popped out one of the lenses and placed inside the loupe. I used super glue which unfortunately fogged the lens up a little. So be careful.

Thanks Donald,
I made the same things with the same problem but it works great!!
Strange that we have to pay a lot of money for the Loop and we have to change the diopters.

I also bought one of these hoods

LCD Hood Screen Protector for Canon EOS 550D T2i | eBay UK

and modified it to hold the hood.

This one makes it easier, and protects the screen, simply stick the mount to it, and slide it on whenever needed. http://www.amazon.co.uk/GGS-Screen-Protector-550D-Digital/dp/B004JM332C
